Very nice multi-effects

Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Seems very well made. Sturdy metal construction, solid footswitches.
How has it stood up over time?
Haven't had it long enough to really say. But Vox seems to be putting out good products and seriously trying to build a reputation, so I'm not worried about it.
Your general opinion of this product.
I like it a lot. It's a low cost multi-effects, which often (maybe usually) means compromised sound quality - but not here. The overdrives, distortions, and amp cabinets all sound good. Not brittle, not "digital".
The modulations, reverbs, and delays are fine. Musical sounding and useful.
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 response to changes in your guitar volume, tone, and picking aren't fantastic, but they're definitely in the useable range.
Like most small but loaded multi-effects, you're not going to easily make a lot of changes on the fly. There are dedicated knobs for drive and volume, but beyond that you're going to pressing buttons and scrolling.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Has a couple of tone control circuits. I've been able to get what I want out of it.
How did the stain or paint job look?
Good looking box. That's part of the appeal. Nice paint job on the metal enclosure. ...... and don't forget those cool retro vibed chicken head knobs!
