This is my first effects pedal I've ever bought. It has 80 different guitar effects + (what I thought was really cool) it had different drum beats that played out through your amp as well. It takes at least a full day to try each different guitar effect. Also, it has a pedal so you can change how much effects input it gives off. You have to have 2 guitar cords. I cord goes from your amp to the processor and the other from your guitar to the processor. Also there's a power cord that you have to plug into it. What I didn't like was that it doesn't have an off switch. So, each time you use it, you have to remember to unplug it to turn off the power. Also, just to let you know, this isn't the kind of pedal that you use to play live or anything, because the different types of effects are randomly put on it. For example: If you are playing a song and want distortion, then you play on one channel, but then the next effect you might need on a different part of the song might be 7 channels up so you would have to stomp on the channel switcher 7 times to get to that specific effect. Overall, I think this is a pretty good effects pedal processor for people that want to just play around.
