Happy with purchase but...I think it is a little overpriced, Altough it only does one thing, you can have a lof of fun adding delay, lots of reverb or tremolo, it sounds pretty cool. I wish i would have pay less, however it is a keeper, i wanted this pedal and im happy with it.

I love this pedal (as does Bill Frisell btw). The smoothness of the sample is incredible. It only does one thing - sustain a note forever - but it's very musical. Depending on the kind of music you play, you'll either use it every day or never.

This pedal freezes your note, so long as you hit the pedal and the note at the right moment. When it works, it works well. And it sounds really cool! Almost like an organ. But. This thing should NEVER be priced over 100 bucks. It holds your note! That's all it does. It can hold it forever, it can hold it for a second, it can hold it for a few seconds. But it holds notes. Yes it's a great brand, yes it's cool. Yes I paid for it because I liked it. But you'll seldom use it. When you do, you'll dig it. It's just way overpriced. It would be better suited at 75.00 I saw another reviewer had an issue with the electronics. Mine is perfect. No electronic issues. Maybe they should get it serviced. I haven't heard of anyone else having troubles with theirs either.

It does what it advertises BUT. It's not true bypass, mine has always imparted an audible high pitch noise when off. Put a boost pedal in front of it and it makes it worse. I've tried different plug in points, adapters, etc. nothing gets rid of it. You cannot run it off a 9 volt battery either, only plug in. Perhaps the super ego is better, I would save for that instead of gambling on this one.
