Got exactly what I was expecting.
Don't really see any cons with this pedal, it sound good, the voice control is great, You can even get some fuzz-like tones if you play around with the knobs. Very responsive, actually works pretty fine as an amp simulator - don't have an amp at home? Just plug this thing into your speakers and jam away, it really sounds pretty decent (not like a real amp, mind You, but close enough for fooling around. Anyhow, it isn't quite it's purpose, so complaining would be silly). It gives of a certain mars******esque sound, I find it sounds best with a strat, definitely some Hendrix there. Only "negative" thing that I can think of is that it doesn't have a lot of gain, but then again, I didn't need a high gain pedal in the first place, so I'm happy with what I got, but for those who are looking around for a distortion pedal - maybe go for true tone california, or that extreme metal one, because this one is pretty tame and soft, I guess You could call it "bluesy". Quite dynamic, works well with volume swells. Would recommend.

UPDATE:
I played around with the pedal using different amps, and it is great! The voice control has a lot of scope, and with the right amp it has quite the range. The amount of available gain depends on the position of the voice knob: all the way to the left - Hendrix'ian sound, almost a fuzz, sort of like a fully cranked old-school stack, dirty and fat; at the middle it sounds like a standard 70's rock setup, especially with a Les Paul, a tad to the left - definite Jimmy Page territory; all the way to the right has more gain, and is a smoother, more "concentrated" sound, similar to a more modern mar***** sound - mixed with the right amp and a LP I easily get Metallica tones.

At first when I got this, I was slightly disappointed, but now after I've spent more time exploring the sounds that it provides - it's great! Later on I'll upload a review of this and the Harley Benton ST-62 MN SB, so stay in tune.

"Classic Rock in a box"...

Well, maybe not - but this is a really comprehensive modelling pedal that does a very good job of evoking the spirit of 60s Brit Rock. And 70s. And 80s - it's the quintessential Classic Rock tone. It surprised the heck out of me that one little box could actually do so much! I come from a time when pedals were pretty much a couple of transistors, maybe an op-amp, a diode or two and a few resistors and capacitors - to make fuzz sounds, essentially. Or wah-wah.
To have a pedal like this - and for the price?! Incredible. OK, so it's never going to give you the SPL and rich harmonics of a 100W head plus 2 off 4x12 cabs - but put this in front of a clean amp and it's brilliant for home use, at levels tolerable by 'the other half'.
Well recommended.
