I don't have access to youtube or anything like that, so the only clips I've heard of this pedal are on their website, and I have to admit that I think that pedals sounds completely horrible. Yet I hear a bunch of people talking that pedal up like it's amazing. So what's so great about it? Sounds like a standard digitech "metal" stompbox pedal that is pretty digital and fake sounding. I had the x-series metal pedal for a while and NEVER used it. I bought it used b/c it was a good deal and ending up selling it because it was so bad. I also played one of their "death metal" pedals too and that thing was even worse. So what's the big deal about the hardwire series pedals?
