whats your major malfunction? people opinions on the best pedals out there is a trillion times more interesting that the OT {censored}e on here. i dont get the hate. :poke:

 

 

Because there is no best flanger, overdrive, fuzz, delay or any other kind of pedal. And there are about 300,000 of these threads on archive. Move on.

Uma chill out dude. Talking about a "best" pedal doesn't mean we are trying to come to a conclusion on which everyone should get. We are simply discussing each person's opinions - why certain pedals are the best or close to it in one, some, or most of people's minds, and the reasons behind each. Which can clearly help anyone who is trying to make a decision.

I would rather read the millionth RAT pedal thread, then read a stupid "how do you pronouce" thread or other annoying nonsense often found on here.

 

Unfortunately one of the drawbacks of a free forum is having to put up with stupid {censored}s all the time.

 

What can you do?

I don't mind the "what is the best pedal" threads. What irritates me is the fact that no one uses the Search function to find out if a thread has already been started using the same title, or something that is asking the same question. I use the Search function all the time, so if indeed I am looking for opinions on the best FUZZ or CHORUS pedal, I have to sift through about 50+ threads that are all asking the same damn question. I suppose it's just human nature to want to start our own thread, instead of reviving someone else's.

I'm with you on the search function. I always do searches before I ask questions BUT, sometimes a "dumb" question by someone leads to new ideas and new pedals to look out for.

Sure, but if I revive a "What is the best FUZZ" thread by posting a bump, or asking for updated info in a new post, isn't that essentially the same as posting a new "What is the best FUZZ" thread? I've seen several 2-year old threads revived recently, and several people answer it as if it were a new thread, so we're still getting current info.

 

Sorry, I realize I'm being OCD :freak: about it; but I'm a Media Specialist by nature, and I'm always trying to consolidate or streamline research processes :)

If someones looking for info though people might over look there question and just read the other post.

 

I just don't mind it. Anything gear related is cool with me. :thu:

mainly because

1. there is no such thing as best (too many variables)

2. to qualify to post a best post, you have to play a lot of pedals through a lot of different gears. This rarely happens. Also see #1

3. best posts are supported usually by the processing power of 1/2 a brain cell.

4. regarding #3, 90% of brain cells is waste on OT's, while the remainder on piss and moan and getting drunk. What's left for a sensible best thread? :confused:

It's boring. It might be interesting the first few times you read threads like that, but they all end up the same.

Typical responses:

Big Muff

WTF? Big Muff isn't overdrive, n00b!!

Silver Kiss

Tube Screamer

Landgraff - unless you're too poor! I drive a Delorean.

etc.

{censored}ing ace!!! thats exactly how i see it. "best of" threads usually have no detail as to what type of rig there using, what type of style they play, or what kind of sound they want. Use the search function if your just looking for overdrives. But by all means, start a thread for 'suggestions' on what to use with your rig and your style. {censored}in a
