General Your general opinion of this product. The main problem with this JML2 product is the operating levels, which are not compatible with pro +4dB inputs or effects loops, which causes many problems that would bot be a problem had +4dB levels been also supported. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Seems well made. Nice metal chassis and finish. Action How was the action out of the box? Tried to add to end of pedalboard chain, but, this doesn't work properly since it alters amp input signal levels; therefore, the gain is affected when the JML2 output level is changed. In other words, this changes your guitar distortion amount when you don't want it altered. Second, if you would like to connect the JML2 to the insert loop on your amp, you can't do that either if you are running +4dB levels, as it only supports -10dB. In other words extra gear is going to be necessary to shift levels between your gear and the JML2; this gear is not cheap, and, it adds unncessary complexity and cabling to your setup, making everything cumbersome to say the least. I've noticed the same problems with other DigiTech gear, in that their designs are not flexible enough to permit their devices in all but one location in the signal chaing, so in many cases you only have the one location that it can be inserted, and, that's it. The JML2 has this problem because is seriouwly needed a -10dB/+
Learning curve high....

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Very high Quality, all metal housing. General Your general opinion of this product. Excellent, it is fairly simple to use, the start and stop of loops is easy to do, and the added bonus FS3X footswitch is a nice to have but not needed. The only thing it adds is undo, which is right at your feet on the JML2, and it does reverse playback and tap tempo to change speed of loops, which are two things like I said are nice to have but don't use much. Would be nice if the footswitch buttons could be re-assigned to my own preference. It does not allow you to scroll up and down through the memory bank which would be good...if I am live I still need to use the JML2 buttons, so the extra footswitch is not really useful for live applications, maybe just for goofing at home. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Does not suck tone from my acoustic or my Les Paul through a Fender Twin tube amp.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Quality is great. I've owned alot of Digitech products over the years and thats why i keep buying them. Reliability How has it stood up over time? As with anything, proper care needed. If you play out alot, invest in padded gig bags or cases. My looper never leaves the studio so it is not an issue for me. General Your general opinion of this product. This is a great tool for working out your solos. Fast and easy--- click, click, boom and you've got playback all at your feet, hands free! Good for novice and experts alike. 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? Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The finish is just fine, stands out nicely. Action How was the action out of the box? Having owned Digitech products for years it was easy to adapt to this pedal quickly. Simply read the instructions and learn one function at a time.
