    Never had one but you need to keep in mind the date of production. Chances are pretty good the delay will be 12-bit resolution, maybe 14-bit. The chorus will be decent enough and the distortion and compressor okay as well. I see that the compressor is using a THAT chip, which suggests it is very close to a CS-3, if not identical. The ability to save presets is probably the strongest feature in my view. Lots of ins and outs on the back, though, which is nice. I suspect it won't knock you out, but as a quick portable pedalboard, if you get it for a decent price, it doesn't seem terrible; the usual predictable Boss quality.
