This is my first effects box/pedal (whatever) so theres nothing to compare it to. I've tried out a few other smaller moudules, but they don't hold a condle to this.
Model Year: 2004
Price: $199.99 (new)
Where Obtained: musicians friend
Features:
40 presets, A-B amp modes, its got the pedal that whahs the effects, 3 drum presets ( i think). AC powered. It's new so thats all I've messed with so far.
Sound Quality:
I use my Ibanez G10 electric guitar and run it through my Ibanez amp. Pluged in the mic for voice distortion (sounds all sorts of phucked up)! I play stuff that kind of sounds like rock but I'm really starting in on some expiremental stuff distorting my Honer Acoustic with a mic and distortion box. Havn't shown anyone yet so when I gather outside opinions I'll fill you in. Its like using a ToneWorks Pandora PX3 but with all the pedals i need to mess it up. I'm very noisey.
Ease of Use:
Programmable and very easy to use.
Durability:
I plan on using it for a live performance after new years...we'll see how it goes.

Dude, i know nothing about all this stuff, i love this thing though.

It goes ok i guess with my amp, i need a larger amp...
Ease of Use:
Man, it is easy as hell to program and i have already programmed so many different things in it.
Durability:
I fell on it once, i think i took more hurt than it did...

A very good unit, overall. Two things could make this unit indispensable, a compressor on/off toggle and cleaner program transition on the fly. There's a slight drop when switching programs. If it were lost or stolen, I would upgrade.
Model Year: 1999
Price: $200.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Guitar Center, Atlanta
Features:
This unit is AC powered. My only complaint is that the unit doesn't allow the compressor to be toggled on/off. If you want to boost your signal for a lead passage, you must program a duplicate patch with a new compressor setting and switch to it for the lead, then back when your done.
Sound Quality:
I use this unit with a Tele and a Strat. I play through a Crate 1600XL and a Fender Deluxe Reverb. For recording, I go directly into the board, this gives a nice crisp sound. I use it for pretty much all styles of music, depending on the gig or session. It's not as clean as my ART Multiverb but, more flexible.
Ease of Use:
Very easy to program. It takes a lot of experimenting to obtain a good sound. But then, that's half the fun. I have stumbled onto some interesting combinations trying find my sound. Most units are fairly easy to program so, this one is comparable.
Durability:
It's plenty reliable for live situations. Digitech has a good rep for making durable products. The construction on this unit is bent metal.

Excellent machine. Only problem I found is that the wah wah pedal just doesn't cut it....you might want to hang on to your Crybaby.
