General Your general opinion of this product. Hands down the best Digital Delay out on the market with the exception of a Strymon Timeline. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Great quality and build. The only problem I have ever heard of happening with these pedals is the switches can break part of the pedal if pressed too hard. There are mods out there that can fix that kind of issue. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? It's big on my pedalboard and takes up the most real estate, but for the tones and sounds, it's definitely worth it! Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? There's 16 different models that you can use. While there's only 3 spots to save from, you can always quickly manipulate the sound to something else. Action How was the action out of the box? N/A Finish How did the stain or paint job look? This is probably one of the few Green Colored products I actually enjoy. I don't hate the color green, just don't prefer it in my musical equipment. Reliability How has it stood up over time? I've had it for a year and so far its running great! Definitely get a power supply and you will be good to go for a long time!
Very useful for live performances

General Your general opinion of this product. Great product, a really flexible delay. The range of delays and tones is pretty remarkable. There are a couple of issues with the unit however; most already know about the volume drop when clicked into use. Another lesser known issue is the failure of the bypass function if the unit gets too hot! Keep in/under shade when playing outdoors during the summer. If this unit is exposed to sunlight and high temps, you will not get a guitar signal when the unit is bypassed. If these 2 issues could be fixed, this unit would be simply spectacular! Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Aside from the overheating issues that accompany outdoor use during the summer, I have had ZERO operational issues. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? It is super versatile and lends itself to a ton of uses for someone that plays in a cover band with a wide range of songs. My band covers just about anything, and I have 3 very different delays set up. I'm never wanting more from the unit! Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? The tone is again, very versatile. The only issue with the tone is the volume drop when the pedal is engaged. For a while Robert Keeley was modding these for $$$ to fix the issue. Unfortunately I can't find anyone else who wants to mess with the unit. Action How was the action out of the box? N/A Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The finish was very pro. No issues here. Reliability How has it stood up over time? I've used it for roughly 50 shows a year, since 2006-ish. That's pretty reliable in my book. If I encounter the overheating issue, I simply setup one of my presets to be just the guitar signal; and instead of bypassing the unit to turn off the delay, I'll switch to the preset that is completely dry.
