VERIFIED BUYER
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us.
Sound: I can achieve a warm tube that fills the auditorium. The sounds are nearly limitless. I play CCM for our church's band and this processor has changed our total sound because the bass is so much fuller. I wish that the synthesizers had a little more variety in sound, because they come off sounding just what their name says--synthesized. I am still fairly new with the ME-20B and am still exploring all of the different effects that are obtainable. Feature: It likes electricity. It should come with the adaptor for AC power, because no one will use the batteries for a concert and have it poop out half way through. It is well constructed and rugged. Well laid out and relatively easy to operate and control. All three pedals are solid and easy to operate. Ease of Use: One evening and I had the major operations down. It makes perfect sense as to its lay out and operation and is to identify what mode you are in. Manual is clear and very useful. Quality: Rugged construction---hey it's a Boss. Value: For what is capable of doing, it is a great value in that all of the separate effects boxes needed to duplicate this would be hundreds more. Manufacturer Support: N/A Haven't had to deal with questions or repairs. The Wow Factor: Nice looking unit

Sound: The sound I get from this pedal is great. It will make any amp louder, but some effects lack power ( moslty the preset lower octive effect) but other than that there are no compliants. It provides hours of entertianment. Its worth every penny. Feature: It dosent come with an ac addapter so I suggest getting one The same day you buy your petal. Ease of Use: Very easy to use, im still messing around with it though so im sure there is more I will discover. Quality: Its boss, its made great. no compliants on the design. Value: a great value! Manufacturer Support: didnt have any problem with the company that made it. It was shipped to me within three business days. The Wow Factor: I love the way it looks and feels, Its just a great addition to my setup. Overall: Overall if your looking for somthing cheap but made good and worth every penny buy this petal.

Sound: Really good pedal with alot of usefull effects. The only problem I had was that the preset wah effects are really quiet. Feature: Not to much to say here. Great pedal. Basic features like tuner and such. Should have came with an adapter, however battery life is decent on it. Ease of Use: When I first got it, the EZ edit on it is pretty confusing, but besides that it is down to earth and simple. Turn knob and push button for effect. simple Quality: Very sturdy. I dropped it a view times and it was fine. It even got rolled over by an 70 pound amp and was fine. Great for someone who might be traveling alot Value: I do believe that out of the pedals in this price range, this one is one of the best. There are some better multi fect pedals out there, but for the price, this one is excellent. Manufacturer Support: Never used. The Wow Factor: Really looks nice. Black and red and all shiny =] Overall: Good pedal for someone who is looking to buy there frist multifect
