I'd by it again. Just wish it had a battery compartment so you didn't have to plug it in all the time.
Model Year: 1995
Price: $199.00 (new)
Where Obtained: musician's friend
Features:
It just about everything but the kitchen sink.
Sound Quality:
It sounds good hooking straight to a studio or mixing board and just using one of its amp sims.
Ease of Use:
It can get a little tricky here but once you do it a few times its easy after that.
Durability:
Haven't had any problems yet.

If the distortions were that of a DOD pedal or more Marshallesque, then id be happy. but its not really geared for my tastes, but its not a real bad piece of machinery. hey and i got it for a playstation, so im not really complaining.
Price: $0.00
Where Obtained: Kevin Mercer
Features:
The 3030 has lots of features and effects. 8 distortions, 4 delays, phaser, flange, pitch shifter, harmonizer and wah (expression pedal included onboard), and more. built in tuner and has stereo jacks and effects. It funs of of ac and has a bank and 4 bank selectors.
Sound Quality:
While alot of the clean effects are real good, the distortion was not my type. Its hard to get a real good crunch with adequate low end with this thing and it no make you amp fart. Cleans are great though. the distortion would probably more rigged for a rock player or punk player. One major complaint is the bank switching. its not to seamless. there is a pause that could hurt the effect of the music.
Ease of Use:
Relatively self explanatory, although there are some things that need to be explained. but editing patches are a sinch once you learn it.
Durability:
Ive had a problem with the incredibly crappy soldering job that they did. ive had to open the entire thing up and fix it myself twice.
