- What are the effects, or types of effects available?
Tube distortion and EQ.
Noise reduction knob on the back.

- What technology is used? (analog, digital, tube...)
100% analogue

- Can they be edited? through a Mac/PC editor utility program?

- What connection types are there? (Audio/MIDI)
In & out, like any simple pedal.

- Is it rackable?
Errm, it's a pedal.


- Is the general configuration/setup simple?
Hard to beat this level of simplicity ;-)

- Is the sound or effects editing easy?
Yes, you can very easily get something u like.
The EQ is very powerful and sounds good.
You can get a bit of noise/hiss but, well, this not a Mesa/Boogie rack, it's a pedal.

- Is the manual clear and sufficient?...
I think it has examples of settings but who needs a manual?? It's a pedal!!


- Are the effects good, usable and sufficiently realistic?
Oh yes!

- With what instruments do you use them?
Don't think the bandwidth would suit a bass or anything else than an electric guitar.

Less hiss would have been good but the noise reduction thingy works ok.


- For how long have you been using it?
About 8 years.

- What thing do you like most/least about it?
Adds sustain for rock solos.
Couple this with the Tube King compressor and you just hoooowwwlll...!

- Did you try many other models before getting this one?
I had had many effects before...Boss ME-6, Digitech RP-6, Boss GX-70, and tried various pedals...and various amps...various sansamps...
This one turned out quite versatile and had a sound i liked more than any other. I'm old fashioned, be warned. My amp is a Marshall JTM-60 (70's style British rock tube amp).

I also have a POD 2.0 and i think this is better.

- What is your opinion about the value for the price?
I paid 950 Francs at the time (£95 back then), ie 143 euros. Not cheap.
A second hand one would be good value, though, for sure.
