Sound: Sound quality is excellent. Very distinguishable differences between settings which is better than most delay pedals. Its inspiringly good! Sound is excellent! It allows your tone to shine through the effected sound and makes you want to never use any other delay pedal! Feature: Plenty of usable features. All of the different delay settings are unique and interesting and usable settings that are very adjustable. The only thing I'm not a fan of (as with most pedals) is the power supply. I wish they had something sturdier because I'm worried of damaging the input. Otherwise its a great product with endless usable options and sounds! Ease of Use: It can be used as plug and play. Granted its slightly more complicated than the average boss style delay, but you can find a good quick delay that is usable in most situations! That wouldn't really justify the price or necessarily be the best use for this pedal. If you are willing to take the time to fiddle with settings it becomes fairly intuitive to use. Besides once you start to save settings you like you can come back to them with a few pedal taps. I like the ability to dial in mili seconds as opposed to just using tap tempo. This way you can work with exact delay times in relation to song Bpm's. Quality: Like a tank. Feels heavy and strong. I wouldn't want to throw it against the wall, but who would?! If you treat it like any other expensive piece of equipment you own, you'll get many years out of it!!!! Only problem is the power supply connector like I mentioned earlier! Value: As with all of us we would love to pay as little as possible but realistically this pedal is worth every cent. Compared to other pedals of lesser quality and comparable price, this is worth that little extra!!!!!! Manufacturer Support: No idea as the product works so well and I have not had any problems, I haven't had to contact them! The Wow Factor: Looks cool!!!! Its inspiring to play. I could use the 2 boss dd5's I have, but the sound quality is miles ahead!!! It looks sick on my pedal board, like something out of star trek! Overall: Great great delay pedal with tons of usable features. Excellent quality sound and it lets your tone really shine through!

Sound: Outstanding sound. Outstanding quality. Oustanding versitility. The sounds/delays are infinitly adjustible! The description dose not do justice to the product. It reads as if you are buying a Z06 vet and getting an Lamboghini. By itself is a sweet sound, used in conjunction with other equipment is seamless and makes it even more versitile. Feature: A very well read booklet and some simple cheat sheets, if you will. Its an EvenTide, quality componets and materials. No frills, just stright forward controls. What the description dose not tell you is that the effects can be controled with a WHA-WHA pedal to sweep thru the already set up presets that are also adjustable and saveable. Very cool and very sweet. You can hook up 3 control switchs to control 6 parameters all thru one AUX port. And the MIDI controls are out of this world. If you have a computer sequencer/software....Im just speachless!! Ease of Use: The presets in there own right are enough to satisfy anyone on there own. When you add in the several ( 10 knobs, a/b sides) and the adjustibility...well its just mind blowing! A turn of a knob and your are in a diffrent world, that easy. Quality: Its EvenTide..need I say more? Value: Worth every cent!! Manufacturer Support: Connect a usb and download product updates, back up a single preset or all or the whole system. Top notch. There web site is cool. The Wow Factor: Stright forward design, features and layout, simple easy, this switch dose this this knob dose that. Overall: I have a DigiTech GNX3 a TimeFactor and a PitchFactor...just short of the EvenTide H8000HW, this is alllll I need. It will take 2 life times to use all the features I have at my feet!

Sound: this pedal is by far the best sounding delay Ive ever heard , I've tried several other top name delays and this one is perfect for any type of music. I also use it with harmonica as well as guitar. its sound is very organic.the highs are excellent and not over the top, its got a great analog sound feature and the digital doesnt sound so processed like other pedals do Feature: man this thing is loaded with features, tons of presets, a dual delay and looper, tap tempo, digital delay , bucket brigade simulation, tape simulation etc etc........too many features to list and use. Ive owned it for 2 months. it will take me a long, long time to use all the features this pedal has. and if thats not enough , ya can update it using a computer and usb cable through the eventide website. Ease of Use: i haven't gotten a bad sound from this thing yet. the layout is pretty straight foward the controls are easy to reach, they are labeled well. and work very well as far as the sweep on each knob .. This thing is loaded with features, so of courst its loaded with controls for those features. Quality: the construction of this pedal seems very solid, die cact, with quality components Value: worth every penny, its a dual delay with a buttload of features and 24/7 web support Manufacturer Support: ive used the website for updates to download , everything is easy to find,with clear tabs and instructions The Wow Factor: if you've tried all th others and are still not quite happy with your tone then buy this product, you wont be dissapointed Overall: there is nothing like an eventide if it were stolen,Id hunt the thief down the search for a delay pedal is over I wont be getting another one,

Sound: This is the best sounding multi-delay stomp box I have ever used or heard. Bar none Feature: Its it just about everything you can reasonably ask for. Tons of delay fx, a looper, and expression pedal control. If you want more than you're not looking at the right category of pedal, or you have a rich fantasy life. Ease of Use: People say eventide pedals are hard to use. I disagree strongly. It's not that different from other multi-delay pedals out there. In this age of computers and iPhones, if you can't figure this pedal out in 15-20 minutes then you're not ready for it. On top of that the pedal's sound trumps all other aspects of this review. Buy this pedal because it will make you sound good, not because you want your grandma to be able to use it. Quality: Solid knobs, tight connections on the jacks, and a decent LCD display. Don't think this will be breaking any time soon. Value: This pedal aint cheap but neither is a Porsche. This is the Porsche of delay pedals. The Wow Factor: Who cares? Is anyone really Looking at your pedal boards besides you and your guitar tech? Overall: Like I said this is the best sounding day pedal I've ever heard. The other pedals in this line sound awesome too. Great in the studio and even better live. If you're a pro looking for a versatile professional quality pedal then go for it! Don't go cheap with line 6 or T.C... I've used both and they suck compared to this pedal. I swear I don't work for eventide, I just dig their gear.
