Okay, we've used other pedals, some we've bought and others from various locations, and we like this one the best. Why? Well for starters it has way more options than our amp and some other pedals we've used so we, my husband and I, are able to get that sound. The way it is designed helps you give off that super professional, ' watch me work' vibe too. Overall it's a solid buy for an even better sound.
