In summary, I would suggest getting one of these for playing around with, but not for any kind of professional usage.
It is a fun little pedal that packs a lot of bang for the buck, particularly if you use it with an expression pedal. I also like the separate dry and wet output and level options, which can be combined with a Y-cable.
Unfortunately, the quality is pretty shoddy (thus the price) and I would never rely on this for a live performance, as I have just recently had the input jack crap out on me after no rough treatment and relatively light usage. Also, it tend to suck the volume when engaged, no true bypass switching, and it can be a little noisey.
If you can get by without the freeze-hold option, which is engaged by holding the switch down, one option would be to use this with a true bypass loop pedal that would allow you to elevate the pedal for twiddling and remove it from the signal path when disengaged, all while reducing wear-and-tear on the most vulnerable points on a cheap quality pedal - the switch and the jacks.
Again, I doubt if I would use it live, for obvious reasons, but if you buy it and find it to be something useful - and if it is actually a direct clone of the Boss syb-5 bass synth pedal - you'd probably be better off ultimately going with the Boss for live performances. If you're not sure about whether this pedal would belong in your arsenal, you might want to save ~$100 and play around with the sound palette and options.
