Baddest Delay on the Planet!

Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Very high quality product. Solid metal, good feeling knobs and jacks, above and beyond input and output capabilities, and the most full featured programmability.
How has it stood up over time?
I own two eventide factor stompboxes for a year or so and never had any problems. I don't use them for gigging (yet) and I use the awesome midi control so I am not stomping on them all the time. They are holding up fine inside my rack.
Your general opinion of this product.
Very awesome stompbox. Best I have ever used. Very full featured delays, awesome sound, extreme programmability. I love this thing, it is my favorite item in my rack.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
This stompbox is easy to control however you want to control it. With the built in switches, midi, extra footswitches, and an expression pedal. You can control it many ways. A little hard to program the pedal, but the manual is very good and once you figure it out you can control any parameter. I love it.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Like I said before, this thing sounds amazing. I don't know how eventide gets their stuff to sound so good. I am not a fan of digital effects because of the brittle digital sound. But eventide knows how to make digital sound excellent.
How did the stain or paint job look?
Looks very cool with LED display and the smooth black metal.
How was the action out of the box?
Came with good packaging and an awesome sticker. Not much to hooking it up, its a pedal. In/out and power. Also, it came with a very good owners manual.
