"Definitely not bad, but I think the overall tone falls short of the hype"
This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.
Not bad, but after all the hype, I was not blown away. Wish it had mid eq. For direct recording, I was previously using a marshall jmp-1 which I already own but it hums a bit so I tried this...I might go back to the jmp unless I find something else.
I like simplicity, and the knobs really do offer a wide palette of sounds.
Ease of Use:
Like above...simplicity is best
You can tell this thing is rugged
have not had to contact
Dont see why it is so expensive (not a million bucks, but would seem that for simple circuitry, it should be a little cheaper.
The Wow Factor:
The appeal is huge--everyone raves about it, so I had to get it too. Like I said, I was disappointed, but will hang onto it...maybe need to fiddle with it more
I'm sure this will last for years, but I will still seek out another solution for recording direct.
