Interface:  4/5
Incredibly simple, just plug this baby in and go!

Versatility: 1/5
Do not use this pedal if you want a bunch of sounds. This pedal does the same, singular thing it has done since its invention, and it does it well.

Clarity of effect: 3/5
The GCB95 definitely thins out the sound of the trumpet, taking away a lot of the low end. It has a similar effect on sax. While some people may not care about their tonal integrity once a pedal like this is activated, this is not the go-to for those looking to be able to maintain their sound even through the sweep of a wah.

Live application: 4/5
Although feedback can be an issue in certain situations, this pedal is a classic whose fantastic live performance has been proven over many years.
