The best thing about it is that it makes a good reverb sound, its very quiet, and is fairly inexpensive.

This Slap Echo pedal has mix and repeat knobs, indicator light and on/off switch. Can be run by 9V battery or optional AC adaptor. Not stereo. Could have a delay knob, but you get a lot of good sounds as it is.
Sound Quality:
I use it with guitars with humbuckers, and a Fender Champ amp. Works well for rock and blues. The pedal is very quiet, running it by itself generates no noise. You can get the "slap echo" sound, a reverby sound, and a sound kind of like the Edge or David Gilmour if you turn the mix knob up so that the return sound is as loud as the straight guitar sound.
Ease of Use:
Easy to use stompbox. Easy to get a good sound.
I have not had it out to play live. Has a fairly heavy plastic case. I think it would be OK, as long as you step on it, not stomp or drop it.
