Like I said in the title: Buy this, buy this, buy this!!! Honestly, I had never heard of Zoom before, I seriously missed out. If you play metal, punk, blues, garage rock, whatever, this thing covers them all beautifully. The quality and richness of the tones is amazing.
As far as ease of use, I really don't know how they could have made this any simpler, short of having it read your mind. Where's the fun in that anyway, when there's so much to play with here? It's also built really sturdy with a metal and hard rubber chassis. It's great for recording, and if you're the type that doesn't switch between more than three patches in a song (like me, I keep it simple), this is perfect for live performances as well.
For the price, this thing is worth every penny! BUY IT!!!
