I bought this from a friend for a quality $100. I wanted it so I could have a little more fun with my guitar, and Tom Morello is my hero.

This sexy red mean machine digitally bends your guitar to the end of the horizon. You can dive bomb 3 octaves down, or shoot 2 up, it has two sweet choruses (shallow/deep) and harmonies. Its solid as rock. I don't know how many times I've tripped and landed with all my weight on it in my room, but it never has screwed up once (except one time it actually went up 4 octaves, I was totally confused). It's perfect for beefing up intense solos. It also has barely any delay between input and output, which is sweet. You can hook your stereo up to it too, which is good times.

What I didn't like about this unit was its function. Anything you did with it was so strange that it had to be saved for a separate bridge in the song. And whenever in harmonies, or bent mode, and you play two notes, it gets really nasty sounding. Its good for rock, a few things jazz, or definetly any kind of out-there music. But after that, it doesn't fit in. And, power adapter is a must.

It'a about the size of a cigar box, with a beautiful red coat. It has an expression pedal at the left used for your whamming. and a knob, and all the functions with LED lights on either side of the knob. It lets you know what your doing, in case you were wondering... There is no place for batteries, you need an adapter

It's loads of fun, but if you try it out, make sure its right for your band.
