I have to give this a 2 thumbs up. You can view the Youtube videos and get a good idea of what it does. However I have found that sometimes once you actually use it in a live application things can be disappointing.<br /> <br /> Not so this time. I received it on a Friday and spent maybe 45 minutes total reading the instructions and testing it out on my powered mixer to see what each of the buttons did.<br /> <br /> Then then next day I did a 3 hour gig on a Sunday with very little learning curve and was able to dial in a really nice tone with my Martin HD28 though a standard house mixer/monitor/pa system.<br /> <br /> Basically what you get is delay/reverb in one channel then chorus/phaser/tremolo in a second channel and a boost button. Also there is a low, mid and high EQ and a cut function. <br /> <br /> It doesn't do anything you couldn't do better with separate pedals but it's really nice to have it all in one compact lightweight unit.<br /> <br /> I have some misgivings about battery drainage but that's not a deal killer.<br /> <br /> Once I dialed it in correctly I had no noise or hum. The boost did exactly as advertised. I found I didn't need more than about 30% on the reverb and tremolo to get just enough color to the sound.<br /> <br /> It sounded so good the other 2 guitar players (we have 3 in our group) all immediately wanted to know what the heck I was running in my rig.<br /> <br /> I'll follow up with a bit more detail when I do the next gig in a week but I have to say it was well worth it the $299.
