Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? It's a Boss. It just won't die. Reliability How has it stood up over time? General Your general opinion of this product. I have owned one for years. I plug it in once in awhile to remind myself how much it sucks. This pedal has been sold for $39.00 for ever. It wasn't worth it then. It's not worth the higher price now. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? It will suck the tone out of guitars that sound awesome thru almost any other distortion pedal. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Action How was the action out of the box?

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? This pedal was made pretty week, its very durable but the battery life is very short. So if you get this your also going to want to buy a charger cord as well. Reliability How has it stood up over time? Its very durable, its been thrown around a lot going from place to place and still works perfectly. General Your general opinion of this product. I got this pedal because I play electric guitar with a band, its a pretty good pedal you just have to know what kind of sound you want but overall for the price its worth it. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? The sound changes sometimes when the battery starts to die, so if that happens when your on stage its not the easiest to adjust the tone then. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? The tone was nice, it really depends on what kind of music you play. If your looking for a hard rock distortion this might not be for you, but if you want distortion without being too edgy then this is for you. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Its a very nice looking pedal, with a very crisp look and a paint job that looks the same today as when I took it out of the box. Action How was the action out of the box? It worked right when I took it out of the box, so I could play with it right away.
