Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Solid metal housing. Soft 'mosfet' (assuming that's what it's called) type buttons, not "clunk" buttons.
How has it stood up over time?
I expect it will last years.
Your general opinion of this product.
Easy to read, programmable tunings. Flat tuning option, ie EADGBE flat instead of chromatic D#G#C#F#A#D#, also pre-programmed Open tunings.
Power up other pedals up to 3 if using AC power

Easy to use. Consult manual once or twice.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
