Fantastic Sound and flexibility ...... but

elDono, 07.12.2017
Really solid build and amazing quality of sound.

I did have trouble creating unique sounds from about half of the patches. This may be down to my inexperience.

Good but still 'digital'

byben, 22.01.2018
Very handy and practical pedal, it can save a lot of place on a pedalboard but the sound is not as good as all the pedals it replaces...as ever I think. It's blue so I expected a better chorus, the phaser is nice, vibe correct, the flanger not very good, overtone mode is a good surprise, very quick response. The tremolo's are correct but not organic...

Conc; if you play with the need of many sounds(cover), this pedal is a good choice, it sounds right. If you want the best sound possible with the best feeling, buy analog pedals.
(I was rude with the chorus maybe cause I compared with Fulltone Choral/flange, CE-2w and Providence Anadime).
