Value For Money : Excellent
3 multi-effects sections including effects, Overdrive / Distortion, Modulation and Delay plus an Equalizer, a compressor sustainer, reverb, noise reductor, Volume Wha expression pedals and pitch as well as a tuner.
All effects are titables using potentiomtre as a classic pedals.
Powered by battery or by sector (not supplied), an optional footswitch between, between one in, one headphone or line, 2 outputs 1 amp and between instruments.


The grip of the machine is almost too easy, not really any gram of head of the manual supplied with almost too many.
We simply feel like to be different pedals, everything is described, the operation is ultra-simple, the edition of sounds as well.


The effects of ME-50, take over the existing pedals, and it is therefore Boss quality.
The noise suppressor is super efficient, good reverb, delay trs good, good modulation, the equalizer is nice with a pretty acoustic simulation practitioner. The only point which does not satisfy me 100% it's like for most multi-effects, the Overdrive and Distortion. I like the sound of OD2, the BD2, the Crunch and the TAR, some others take the road but the ds one turns to the big distos it sounds a little too rough and not enough natural .


I use it for several months, sometimes live I do not use programs and change settings like a good old pedals that we can not do with another multi-effects.
It is solid, rgonomique, easy, considering the price of pedals, there's good delay, a good noise suppressor, good chorus with nothing we ca dj winner so good value qualitprix.
For the same budget, I buy the same, with a budget over consquent plutt I will opt for a good rack with pdalier noon.
