Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Like I said its very solid and made well. Built like a tank. Electron harmonic makes great pedals.
How has it stood up over time?
Very reliable I've owned two of these pedals. I regretted selling my first one and bought another and will never part with it again.
Your general opinion of this product.
This is the ultimate metal stimpbox. Very solid build. Looks awesome.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Very loose distortion. If you have a tube amp you can get a real death metal tube lag thing going. Very awesome sounding.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Tone is very flexable. One way to know if you have a good amp that has headroom is to turn the bass on the metal muff past one o clock. If the amp bottoms out you need a better amp for metal. One mistake people make with this pedal is the top boost.you never want it turned past 9 or 10 o'clock or the pedal sounds shrill.top boost can be used for some rhythems if you turn it to the area around 7 o'clock or 8 this will give you a sweep like effect. You won't need to do it though because the equal without the top boost is very aggressive. There are many pedals out there and this one is the best it gust takes some getting use to. If this pedal doesn't get you the sound you want you need a better amp. If you have a peavey valveking they are not a metal amp. This pedal won't do you any good for the vk. Buy a turbo tubescreamer instead.
How did the stain or paint job look?
Paint job is very metal looking
How was the action out of the box?
Action is great very solid unit does metal like it says.works good with other pedal. You have to have a amp with lots of headroom to get the most out of the metal muff.
