Surprisingly good pedal

Scott Zsalt, 21.08.2017
I didn't have the greatest hopes for this pedal considering the price but it's turned out to be surprisingly good, at least when you consider just how little it costs.

Distortions/Overdrives:
I'll cover this first as it's where you're most likely to be disappointed.
If you are expecting the drive effects to sound exactly like the pedals they're modelling then you're going to be less than impressed. They simply don't sound close enough to be convincing. However if you take the pedal modelled as a guideline to what kind of drive sound you're getting then maybe not. The effect that copies the Big Muff, for example, doesn't really do that pedal justice but as a fuzz on its own merits it is pretty good.
This is pretty much the case for all the drive/fuzz/dist effects here: they're good in their own right but not as copies.

Mods/delays: The modulation effects are much better. Again, not all of them are as accurate as you might hope but they are much closer than those drives and they are very usable and setting the parameters is quite intuitive.
The delays in particular are pretty awesome and outshine the delay effects on my amp.
The particle effect on its own makes this pedal worth it as there's no other way to get this effect for such a low price.

Dynamic/Filter: And now we come to what this pedal does really well, imho. The noise gate/comps etc are astounding. I can honestly imagine not using my standalone noise gate ever again! And whilst I can't yet see a use for the Moog filter, it really is brilliant.
The wah sounds are a bit of a let down in comparison to as real decent wah but they are pretty good for a multifx and with a bit of a tighten the expression pedal becomes pretty good and despite the flimsy feel it's very usable.

Presets: The presets are not too bad and I can see myself keeping a chunk of them, but they tend to need a bit of tweaking before they're really good. I tried overwriting one that I'll never use with my own patch to see how easy it was and it's a doddle.

Build: This is not a rugged pedal. Clunk down too hard on it with your size 13 boots too many times and it will break. It's plastic and you can tell.
However, providing you keep this in mind and exercise some care ans restraint when using the unit I think it should last.

Ease of use: The pedal is very easy to use. It takes some getting used to before it's second nature but the instructions are clear and there are plenty of instructional vids and forum posts on the web should you get stuck.

Thomann service: My first unit was faulty. Thomann replaced this with no fuss and they did so quickly. As usual the product was delivered quickly and was adequately packaged.

Overall: If you need and all in one pedal for home use then this is ideal. Not every sound is brilliant but they're all acceptable and some are amazing. Putting patches together is very easy and the expression pedal works very well indeed once you get the torque adjusted for your preference.
It probably won't take too much of a beating though and I would advise against using on stage unless your area is well lit and you are sure that you can keep big clumsy feet away.
There are probably better multifx pedals out there but if you're after something versatile and fun that won't make you wish you'd spent the money on another guitar then this is likely to be a good purchase.

great practice tool

midoriya, 24.05.2018
I use this to practice improvisation with its looper function. I make a riff and practice my solo's. It also takes a bass guitar well, so its easy to add bass to your loops, no problem when you don't have a bass guitar since it has a patch which turns your guitar into a bass.

pro's:
- its compact battery powered so you can take it anywhere and practice your licks and riffs.
- you can practice at night with the headphone connection.
- it has 100 preset patches/sounds which you can tweak if you want to, and gives you a great palette to work with .
- it has a built in rhythm section with a metronome and drumloops of various genres.

cons:
- its made of plastic, but it seems sturdy enough
- the looper can hold only 30 seconds,
- the looper doesn't have an undo function

all in all this is a great product which can't be beat at this price range.

Is it good enough to record songs? if you know what you're doing it can, I've seen videos where you would never guess this was used for the sounds.
