The general configuration is simple? Yes: you plug it sounds, we play. The editing sounds and effects is easy? Yes. If you know you use a gain pedal (overdrive, distortion) with a 3-band EQ, this should not change you. Here, you just have 3 pedals in 1. The feature is to use a footswitch rack, but only three positions, as found on the wah pedal to switch from one mode to another. I find that this feature does not much interesting, plus it is quite difficult to properly lock on mode 2. The manual is clear and sufficient? ... I had no manual with it. BALANCE: Pedal Plug & Play, no surprises except the central footswitch that I find interesting and fairly impractical in the end. A footswitch system Up / Down would have been better.
The effects are they effective, responsive and realistic enough? The 3 modes allow good versatility and navigate extensively in the world of overdrives (mode 1) and distortion (mode 3). Playing well on the gain, it is really possible to get 3 different sound palettes: Fresh overdrive, crunch inflated, very straight and harsh distortion. The side a little more frustrating is that the machine is shared EQ, this being, it is very effective: the controls are active on all their races. The ability to adjust the midrange seems to be a big plus (I really have trouble with the settings type tone) It may possibly be used in boost but it is not there it shows all its qualities. Which instruments do you use? MH400NT ESP LH. I tried the pedal plugged into a UL Valbee or SS-20. Small demonstration against the hard here:
For how long have you been using it? Approximately 1 month. What thing do you like most/least about it? Most: The 3 modes that can have a wide range of its A true 3-band EQ The least : The footswitch which seems a bit disproportionate technical choice as compared to the use made of it. Did you try many other models before getting this one? Yes, see my other reviews. This is not the worst I've tried, nor the best. What is your opinion about the value for the price? It costs about 200 € which I think is correct in view of possible settings and the fact that we have finally of 3 pedals in one. Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice? ... I did not buy this pedal, I won thanks to the excellent blog Gas-A-Gogo ( https://www.gasagogo.com/ ) and The 5th Fret ( https://www.fifthfret.org/ ) . RESULTS: A pedal quite original in design, these sounds interesting to try So.
