Great all round multi fx unit, particularly for beginners
The Boss Me70 is certainly near the top of its level when compared to other similarly priced units. It is incredibly versatile, with the ability to produce a number of well produced effects and even replace your amplifier if you were particularly desperate. L/R and headphone outputs make this a useful tool for recording, and silent switching as well as an almost non-existent lag time between changing presets makes this an asset to any beginner or semi pro.
What I like most about this unit is its ability to act as a number of stomp boxes in one housing, which is great if you just want to set up and recall simple effects combinations on stage, but also its ability to turn into a huge vault of presets which are easily saved and recalled.
There are a few drawbacks to this pedal, the most prominent for me being the slight muddiness to some of the effects and the lack of quality within the amp models. Also, the reverb effect is non-switchable (unless saved within presets) and the huge array of delays cannot be accessed when the looper is in use. However, these draw backs are not too much of a problem for most users and its incredible street price makes this a top deal that is easily worth twice as much.
Really fun - portable and durable. Great for when you don't have the cash but want a boss digital delay, tremolo, overdrive, distortion and more. Fun effects like reverse and slow gear. Delay is exceptionally good. Extra fun to hook up a microphone or keyboard to.
Totally worth it
My bassist is letting me use his, but I pretty much get the picture. The ME-70 is perfect for the gigging/songwriting musician in need of a basis for usable effects. The quality of the effects can vary, some distortions are not as crisp or dynamic as their BOSS stompbox counterparts (which weren't exactly premium grade to begin with), and some effects you would like to be separate from others, whereas they are unfortunately confined to the same pedal. It's not meant for recording, but if you need a quick overdrive, compressor/boost, modulation, delay, reverb, and wah without busting your ass in expenses, then you need this.
Great Pedal board
I had to buy this after hanging out at my friends place playing guitar. When I first played it, I was surprised by how great the distortion sounded for non amp distortion. This board is very useful, and convenient. The amount of different settings is crazy, there are so many combinations. This board has about anything you could think of. The Delay part is great too, especially the looper pedal
