  • Four out of five stars or 4/5 or ****

    Let's get serious for a second.  All pedals aren't created equal and we should be rating these things at face value instead of hype.  Every pedal is not a 4/5 like a P&W CD! 

    To get OVER a 3/5 rating a pedal needs to do something that no other pedal in its cateory does.  For instance - Don't tell me this new light/medium over drive is the BEST because it's touch-sensativity and blah blah blah.  It's just another tube screamer variate like JHS, klon, tim, or timmy.  

    I have owned all the hype pedals from time to time. From light overdrives to expensive fuzzes and delays and $500 reverbs.  They don't make you play better.  They just don't.

     I have found that my $29 MIT Boss SD-1 is more consistent, reliable and EVEN SOUNDS better than any other fancy overdrive I have owned.


    So just stop.  Right now.  Put down dem stars dawg.  Cause they ain't that good! 

    Eat it.
