I found this little number on samedaymusic.com for $296. they gave me free 2-day shipping on my order, and it arrived in pristine condition.

I love the effects. that's exactly what it's for. its design is simple and relatively easy to figure out, so the learning curve is minimal. the quality of the sound is gorgeous. its got a noise gate built in (user adjustable) as well as a compressor/sustainer, so you can pretty easily make a $300 guitar sound like a $1300 guitar. tone modify is very subtle but noticeable, so your guitar still sounds like it should. i heard one guy complaining about the reverb being out of wack and not having a good, even setting, but i think the reverb is perfect for me. i had no trouble adjusting it to any level. the OD/DS is versatile and very nice. any type of distortion you want can be found here. modulation is nice, although i don't particularly care for some of the ones on the unit. i mainly use the flanger or chorus. delay is fantastic. you can set it to any delay mode, including reverse and tap. the control you have over the effects is right where it should be: in your hands and in good quality.

i love my me-50, but the memory modes are a little difficult to get right. it takes more tinkering than i'd like, but i prefer not to use these functions anyway and i think that most people don't care about it.

it's boss, so i know it's solid. i highly doubt it will break.

It's boss! it's all the boss effects! you'll save hundreds by getting this, and you know you'll get flawless quality. fall in love with playing guitar all over again and get this unit.
