Sound Quality
I run this inline all the time, it has no impact on my sound at all. It tunes brilliantly. Better than my Intellitouch contact tuner and better than the built-in tuner on my Boss ME-50 muliteffects unit. Works fine with solidbody, semiacoustic and acoustic guitars, and solidbody and acoustic bass guitars (except the low E sometimes doesnżżżt get picked up and you need to use the 12th fret harmonic).
Reliability/Durability
Very dependable. I've dropped it, stepped on it, spilt beer on it, and it's fine. After about 7 years of heavy usage (however I got it second hand so it was older than that) I started getting occasional hums and dropouts, and discovered that the input jack had become loose from the circuit board (it's soldered directly on). So I resoldered it and it has been fine ever since (3 years). the flap on the vinyl case eventually came loose (splitting along the fold) but i just gaffa taped it and it's fine.
Price/Value
General Comments
Brilliant. I bought one of these new 15 years ago and it was the only thing my wife and I fought over in our divorce. She won :( so I immediately bought another second hand and have had it now for 10 years. if I lost it or wrecked it I would buy another pronto.
