It works more or less as advertised. However, I would say that it works better for guitarists who like a good clean (as opposed to dirty) tone. Country and blues players should like this. However, I play classic hard rock and metal, and the system doesn't jive well with my rig being that I use 2 Peavey XXX half stacks run stereo. I'm getting tone and gain loss from the system despite getting a strong signal from the transmitter to the receiver. It almost sounds like I'm playing a guitar with single coil pickups instead of humbuckers.
