I have tried alotta units, But none ever gave the full on tube tone... this one does!! I dig it because I liked my 21 and knew it was the obvious choice for my rig.. I wish it had multi effects that you could use together. My favorite aspect is the tube sound you get from it. This is a great peice of hardware to add to your rig... and cheap nowa days!!
Price: $105.00
Where Obtained: Music Go Round...
Features:
Foot pedal Controlled, input level, output level,stereo outs, effects loop, dual inputs, Twin tubes!!!
Sound Quality:
I run it thru twin Marshalls. Sounds great for many styles, crunchy metal tone, warm smooth clean tones... In the past I have used, ADA MP-1,ME5's,Gsp-21 Legend, Roland gp-8 and 16, and the Twin Tube suits me best!!! Very quite unit in fact too quiet...doesn't feedback as as readily as I'd like...yet!!!
Ease of Use:
Easy to program, editing is a breeze. Pluged it in and played with it for 1 day and got some great tones!!! Easy to use, works well with wah pedal, and other outboard gear...
Durability:
I hope it's reliable,... I just bought it!! But I owned a similar unit( Gsp-21 legend) and it still works great after 11yrs, many gigs and a road life.

Great processor for a great price!!! heck of alot easier to deal w than some of the new stuff w their hidden features. this unit will not do death tones, though, so it is not for u, if thats what ya want. want good tone that is very emotive, here ya go.
Price: $85.00
Where Obtained: merrit island,FL pawn shop
Features:
Typical rack effects processor layout, w buch of buttons and few knobs. tube based!!!! stereo capable has a ps/2 type of floor board connector on back. very bad!!!
Sound Quality:
Sound fine for 85 dollars. i have built plenty of great sounding patches that blow people away. i especially like it's delay.unfortunately, only one effect can be used at a time(chorus, flanger, or delay)w the tube voicings.
Ease of Use:
Very easy to use for a multi effect. the buttons actually mean what they say!!!! patches are easily stored and edited. overall sound volume can be controlled internally or w the input and output knobs on front. very cool. havent tried a pedal w it yet but iwll soon.
Durability:
I guess its durable. it is a rack effect. the only abuse will be electrical. has some noise probs. likes to send a nice loud signal surge on occasion
