Value For Money : Poor Audience: Beginners
Those who think this piece of shit sounds good:

Were either advised by as a shop assistant with a witty eloquence.
Or they love unconvincing things that deform everything and, especially, have a more awful voice than the one that comes out of this crap.

I've owned it for 2 years. I used it for 4 concerts, 10 rehearsals and then added it to my collection of electronic crap that makes me vomit.

Did I try other products? A very short reverb, a beta58, a gate and, especially, a good sound engineer who makes sure my voice comes out like it should. When I showed him with great excitement my new acquisition, he just laughed in my face...But he did try it out. He's still laughing. The bastard!

What I like best: The look on the shop assistant when I asked for my money back two hours after buying it. He wouldn't do it! Yeah sure! He had it on demo for months. People stood in line to try it out and laugh. But he got me when I was drunk.
I do like its color. You can glue a flashing light to it and it would be a hit at fire department parties.

What I like the least: It produces feedback. It isn't natural! Metallic, artificial vocals. I heard a guy proudly singing with this crap. He added a third to his voice. If you closed your eyes you'd think a guy was burping a third! It's surely okay for a punk or satanic band.

It's really not good. If you need backing vocals while you sing, get people who can sing, it's better.

I used it for guitar and got some funny results.

It's really very expensive for what it's worth. ...
