EASE OF USE
The sleek, black and white design of the ME-25 makes each button, knob, and pedal easy to see and access. Three footswitches, an Expression pedal, four knobs, nine backlit buttons, and enlarged LED panel provide an uncluttered control panel that’s great for any environment — even on dark stages.
Sound quality is very good due to COSM (Roland Amp Emulation Technology) as can be seen in the demo videos. Plenty of Bass, presence, etc. Overall a very good sounding unit.
VERY Solid built (metal housing) and solid pedal/switches. Overall I'd say a high level of Reliability.
4 out of 5.
