    Boss ME-5 - "UPGRADE your BOSS ME-5 !" has images


    BOSS ME-5 -UPGRADE KIT - just £13.99 Few people realise that the ME-5 incorporates the classic BOSS pedal internals that are now vintage in their own right including the: CS-2, DS-1, OD-2, RV-3, EQ-1, CE-2, DD-2, BF-2 all together with a switchable N…

  • TC Electronic Corona Chorus

    TC Electronic Corona Chorus - "Another Good TC Electronic Pedal"


    I don’t really like chorus pedals especially with distorted guitar. I can tolerate it on a clean sound, but there are much better effects to add to a signal than chorus. With that said, I have TC Electronic’s Corona Chorus on my pedalboard. Why yo…

  • TC Electronic Flashback Delay

    TC Electronic Flashback Delay - "Versatile Features in a Small Package"


    Delay is quite possibly the most universal effect for guitarists used in different forms across all genres. When it came time to build my pedalboard I knew I had to have a delay pedal on there. I had become accustom to having multiple types of dela…

  • Ibanez TS808 Tube Screamer Vintage

    Ibanez TS808 Tube Screamer Vintage - "It is a Classic Piece of Gear for a Reason" has images


    Back in the eighties I walked into my local music store, and in the display case was a used green pedal. An Ibanez TS-808 Tubescreamer for sale for only $10. I had the money in my pocket, and having an unhealthy love of gear I bought the pedal. I …

  • Boss AD-3

    Boss AD-3 - "Some Brilliant Features Couple With Some Underwhelming Additions"


    I bought the AD-3 for a specific reason, and that was that I did not trust my band’s sound guy. We were starting to do acoustic gigs, and the sound of my guitar out of the mixing board was less than stellar. I did not want to get an amp since there…

  • TC Electronic Hall of Fame Reverb

    TC Electronic Hall of Fame Reverb - "Small Box With Big Reverb Choices"


    There are three things I look for in a pedal, besides the sound it makes, and they are: size, flexibility, and simple controls. The Hall of Fame Reverb by TC Electronic has checks by all those boxes, and it sounds really good, too. It is housed …

  • Zoom G3

    Zoom G3 - "Great Amp sim & FX!"


    I have had this for 18 months and have used it as a standalone Amp sim, an FX processor in FX loops of amps, Preamp only, USB recording, and USB interface (FX Bypassed!). This unit has excellent sound quality! The dist/OD sims vary in quality but the…

  • Voodoo Lab Sparkle Drive Mod

    Voodoo Lab Sparkle Drive Mod - "A Unique Take on the Overdrive Formula" has images


    I was intrigued by the Sparkle Drive when it first came out. I liked the idea of being able to mix in the clean sound along with the overdriven sound of the pedal. I could see the potential of being able to marry the two sounds, but it was several …

  • Boss TR-2 Tremolo

    Boss TR-2 Tremolo - "Worth it, but not at full price"


    I’d like to start out by saying that this pedal is worth it if you buy it at a discount or second hand because it’s a Boss pedal and they will work just fine even if they’re from the 80s. This is generally a good pedal, but unless you need tremolo ef…

  • Bogner Ecstasy Red

    Bogner Ecstasy Red - "Good Features But Not the Best Sound"


    When I went from a multi-effects device to individual pedals I needed a good distortion pedal to anchor my sound. I wanted a distortion pedal that included a boost feature. I also wanted control of the level and the amount of distortion that the bo…
