Overall Rating
Playability and Feel
Love the Hardwire Pedals
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
I have several Hardwire Pedals and I would use any of them at a gig without a backup. They are solidly built pedals that always deliver.
How has it stood up over time?
As I stated "They are solidly built pedals that always deliver".
Your general opinion of this product.
Lots of Delay types to tweak to your preference. Very user friendly.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Very intuitive to operate.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Only con would be the Looper. I wish it was longer and didn't have the glitch at the end of the 20 seconds. It's still usable though. I tdoesn't quantize which I prefer. I like to hear what I put in and not have it reprocessed by any internal clock. I use the looper a lot. You just have to make the loops a little shorter and get the timing down where the loop stops.
How did the stain or paint job look?
The finish on the Hardwire Pedals is anodized aluminum.
How was the action out of the box?
Action is great. It turns on and off by stepping on it and the knobs turn.
