(Originally written by Gratt'oche/translated from Audiofanzine FR)

Small analog multi-effect entirely made of plastic shaped after a Les Paul...
It produces most of the common effects: delay, distortion and amp simulations.
You can edit and save the effects. The connections are very simple: Guitar input, headphone output, aux input, L/R outputs, footswitch and Midi in/out.

UTILIZATION

The user's manual is ok but you won't need it to edit your sounds if you've already used similar effect units. The edition is somewhat tedious because it has only a 2-digit display, making it just as hard as on every other multieffect with such a display. After a while, you'll get used to it. However the LED rings around the controls are a very good idea...

SOUND QUALITY

Regarding sounds, and considering its price tag, I wasn't expecting anything extraordinary... But I never thought... Nothing is really believable.
It's not as bad with headphones, but don't expect to use it for recordings because it won't enhance your playing...

OVERALL OPINION

I bought it a couple of years ago but it hasn't come out of its lovely bag that often. It was a second-hand impulse buy. Why didn't I stay in bed that day...?
Though, it can be helpful, for its price...

I regret ever buying it... Very unsuitable for rehearsal and concert, and it will certainly do no better in the studio. I recommend you to avoid it. It was ok when it came out, but now it's totally obsolete.
