For features go to the manufacturer's website...

The handling is easy and fast.

I give it an 8 because this tiny box includes too many effects...

UTILIZATION



Very easy to use... You'll master it very quickly!! It isn't very rugged and you'll immediately feel that you can't abuse it like a wah. Nevertheless mine is 3-4 years old and it is still working!!!

Editing: You'll learn it very quickly, but I miss a third switch for patch banks... Some other details could have been better designed...

SOUND QUALITY

It's a small multi-FX for beginners and I don't use it anymore.

It provides a sort of contour effect making the sound heavier... It works well... and it sounds good with a bit of chorus...

I often use the filter with distortion. I like to fool around with my guitar's volume knob and the expression pedal... I get special sounds (Radiohead fan)...

I give it an 8 considering the price I paid...

OVERALL OPINION

It's a product for beginners even though the finish is not very good, but it can be useful... It gives you the possibility to try classic effects and strange ones, like the watter effect everyone is talking about, a filter effect, a ring modulator, a scratch effect... So many sounds I hadn't tested anywhere else...

The main con is its retro luminescent display!!!

As a summary, it's a good product for beginners and to experiment with new effects. But it's not a high-quality product!! The sound has no dynamics...
