Their slogan fits quite well... " Stompbox simple and pedal board powerful "

I have owned a Line 6 M13 for 14mths now. I LOVE IT! The more I learn to use it and play with it, the more solid it feels. The sounds are fantastic. All modeled on vintage sounds, and they sound like it. You can see all the specs above, so I won;t go into them, but the sound of this pedal is nothing like the sometimes digital sound of a POD. It sounds creamy, and dare I say even analog. Very happy with how easy it is, how many combinations I can get out of it with the scenes, and happy with the way sounds layer. I actually am finding my self wishing there was one more row up and across. I find it easy to have a drive, a delay, an effect and a reverb all on at once, so I have to line them up like that. Simple and awesome. I'll never buy another pedal again, seriously. Especially if Line 6 keeps coming out with software updates. Feels like Christmas time, getting essentially free, new pedals. 100% recommend. 10/10 piece of equipment. :)
