Sound Quality

I have an Epiphone Les Paul (Standard), through a Marshall Park G30RCD. The sound quality is very even on this half decent set up. Personally, I found it a bit hard at first to find a good overdrive, because the Cabinet emulators create a 'hollow' sound. But, this can be turned off. I've read some of these reviews, and they say that the pedal produces hidious hissing noises on certain effects and modulations. I think they haven't discovered the excellant Noise Reduction control, which can be adjusted to remove all background noise if required. BUT. I found a major drawback that still bugs me. If I want a pedal effect on, it automatically turns off the modulation effects. This means, I can't have a phaser mixed with a Wah effect. I play a lot of Manic Street Preachers, and so far, I have successfully reproduced one desired effect or another (even that cool phaser bit at the beginning of Tolerate).

Reliability/Durability

Its solid metal casing means even my elephant feet won't mark this baby. The pedals may be a bit on the small side, but thats only a minor niggle. I would fully gig this, as it has such a good build quality.

General Comments

This is an excallant effects pedal for mid - rock music (Manics, OCS, Oasis at a push). I don't think it has the uummph for more heavy metal music, but then again it depends on your amp. On a 4x12, it would run as slick as Christmas.

I've been playing for 5 years, and the only other effects pedal I have is a Boss Flanger. The controls on the AX1000G mirror the style of the Boss stomp boxes, and that's what first drew me to it.

Don't expect a GT5, as thats a whole different price tag. Do expect something that'll kick the ass outta your mates Zoom 505, in terms of sound, style, build, interface, U-Vibe effect etc..
