General Your general opinion of this product. Well worth the money; a quality product. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? This appears to be a very well made product. The pots are very smooth and responsive, the jacks are high quality, and the case is a quality metal. Ease of Use How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be? I find this box very easy to use; however, I wish the blend knob had a yellow pointer like the others, so that it would be easier to see where the blend is currently set. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? There is an amazing array of tones to be had; it is really a tweaker's paradise. The only complaint that I have is the lack of a yellow pointer for the blend knob. Sound How is the tone? I was very pleased with the surprising amount of different tones available, and I find the blend knob a very valuable asset. With the Sansamp engaged the sound is full and powerful with a very smooth compression with long sustain (smoother than any stand alone compressor that I have tried). With the Sansamp completely disengaged the sound is a very wide frequency response but still seems to retain some of the gentle compression that I like from this box.
