    Is this a good pedal for live gigs?

    I am not qualified to answer this as I have never played a gig, but one thing you should know about it is the rather delicate (or clumsy depending on how you want to look at it) way you engage bypass mode. There are two pedals on the BP200 from which you cycle the effects. These are separate from the expression pedal. These two pedals are side by side and they are plastic. They do not travel as far as a Boss-like pedal; they are very sensitive and they work more like the buttons on a computer mouse. To put it in bypass you have to hit both pedals simultaneously which, in my uneducated opinion, might be a little tricky while gigging (depending on your own circumstances of course). It would at least be a little tricky of you were doing it in the middle of an uptempo song while jumping off your 4x10 for instance.
