I own the best analog effects that money can buy. This box holds its own against them and is durable, inspiring, quiet and toneful. Add a tuner and you can gig and cover so much ground it's just fantastic. A super pedal that really has no competition in modern effects. The old Ibanez PUE5 is close but but I like this better. The two distortions give you just what you need to gig and it SOO small and sweet sounding. It is expensive but worth it. Value is measured in worth not price and this offers so much value. The chorus is nice and reasonable quiet, delay is comprable to the Carbon Copy, distortions are a little like a Mesa dirty channel - full bodied distortion that retains the character of the guitar. Compressor is better than Boss and not quite up to Keeley standards. Again - all effects are very usable. It's a professional piece of gear that pro's will feel right at home with. So simple - bless you CM and company!
