Wow! Boss Clinician Robert Marcello shreds and produces some radical sounds with this unit (see link below for his video demos). The last Boss multi-effect processor I owned was an ME-33. I never had any problems with that unit and took it on several tours packing it in my carry-on. If you are especially hard on gear, have a tendency to drop things or have a heavy foot you might want to steer clear of units like this in favor for a Utopia or Nova System. My only gripe is the overall look of the pedal – it looks like a processor from 10 years ago. Surely there’s a way to sex it up a bit. However, for a mere $199 you can get an excellent sounding floor processor with sublime control.
