I would get another one if this one broke. You can find them on eBay for almost nothing. You can get this multi pedal for what you'd pay for something that doesn't have the features or sound as good.
Price: $115.00
Where Obtained: EbAY
Features:
Once you familarize yourself with the unit it's very easy to tweak. I would recomend those with a computer get the editing software from Digitech for this unit. It makes setting up your sounds as easy as possible.
Sound Quality:
This unit is just old enough to capture the sounds I prefer. I have several other digitech products but this is my "go to" unit when I just want to have fun. Never had any complaints.
Ease of Use:
^^ See the features section ^^
Durability:
Can't complain. I use it all the time and it keeps on ticking!

I liked the volume/wah pedal and the broad range of effects. The price was good also for what was available. I would buy another like it at a good price but would upgrade to newer versions if offered at the same price. The switches do get touchy and need removed at times and tape placed over the switches for spacing and ease of changes.
Price: $150.00
Where Obtained: Pawn Shop
Features:
This unit has foot controls with one volume/wah pedal. It is ac powered with a transformer in line, that is, it is 120 cord to midway and then transformer then midi-type cable to the unit. It is stereo. It does not have tubes but I wish it did.
Sound Quality:
I use a Fender Strat with a humbucker in a single-coil bridge pickup. Also, Fender Musicmaster ('58), Taylor Big Baby with sound-hole pickup. Samick 5 string bass with actives. Mic for vocals. I write Christian music and play all kinds of music so the unit fits well with most that I do. It's not noisy unless the settings are off a bit. The multi-effect range is great. The factory presets are a little strange but can be quickly programmed to suit taste.
Ease of Use:
It is programmable and easy to create and edit patches. It takes a little fiddling to get good sound through amps. I use headphones for the most part for practice. It is very easy compared to the boss me6 that I have used in the past and the digitech RP-1.
Durability:
Seems touchy with the footswitches. Sometimes they work too easy and other times they have to be stomped on several times to get the proper sound you want.
