What you expect from a Boss pedal ...A1
Works well would have given 5 stars. Only a minor thing that guitar input jack is A little lower than other boss pedal so would have to pack gap about 3/16" underneath base of pedal to align when using solid jackplug links between all the other boss pedals.otherwise ok.
This is an excellent pedal that completes my Boss 6-pedal board.
