Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? I've only had this for a month or so, but I've got Digitech products that are over 15 years old that are still functioning properly so I would expect this to do the same. Reliability How has it stood up over time? See above General Your general opinion of this product. This pedal is a phenomenal buy. The delay flexibility alone makes it worth the asking price at AMS(I think most retailers are asking $200), but when you factor in the modulation and pitch that you can blend into the delays, it amazing! I don't much use the looper as I have a dedicated device for this so I cannot speak to it's usefulness. Other reviewers seem to like it that feature a lot. The delays can also be grouped in patterns that are really nice. I was looking to buy a Strymon Timline, but went with this when I saw the price. I may still buy the Strymon to replace another delay in my effects chain. Overall, I would recommend this pedal to anyone looking for a delay with creative, flexible options. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? n/a Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Sounds great. Really love the pitch and modulation! Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Looks amazing. Action How was the action out of the box? n/a

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Quality is the old Digitech high quality case & electronics ! Reliability How has it stood up over time? Only had it a couple months, but appears to be durable and has not had any brain seizures yet !! General Your general opinion of this product. Most versatile delay I've ever played. Wish the looper was a little "bigger", but is adequate. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Very user friendly, easy to operate...good manual. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Functional versatility is the name of the game, and this is a great one !! Output has no discernable degradation, stays very level when switching through parameters & settings. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? N/A Action How was the action out of the box? Pretty much plug & play. Studied the manual for about 10 minutes and was ready to experiment.
Not worth it at all!!!

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Digitech pedals always have the same feel. They have Boss style foot switches without the sturdiness. Their tone is always too "digi"tal and very unappealing. Reliability How has it stood up over time? Would probably work until you heard something better....anything better. General Your general opinion of this product. I picked mine up on clearance for $160 and returned it within a week. Yes it has many unique features but they sound so bad that its unusable. Trying to be a Strymon Timeline doesn't mean you're going to get close to the same tone. AMS has many other delays to choose from that sound better. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Digital sounding all the way! It's always either too loud or too soft, feedback is too long or short....Never could find the sweetspot on this thing. The pitch shifting never tracked close to well enough. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Horrible. Could never dial in the right tone. Bought a Flashback x4 and immediately heard a significant difference. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Looked very cheap, plastic knobs were supper flimsy. Bought mine NIB. Action How was the action out of the box? Footswitches never felt right. Tap tempo was harder to dial in.
