A Stompbox Sampler

By Gerald

Of the various forum topics, the gear forum appears to be the most popular, partly because there's lots of discussion on stompboxes. I don't know much about gear though, and the blog is somewhat lacking in this aspect. Fortunately, Gerald, who is quite active on the gear forum, and has put in much time and effort to carefully select & buy a number of pedals, has recorded a few clips for us to sample:

If you have questions for Gerald, you can leave a comment in this post, or better still, put up a topic in the forum. Also, click here to check out the video's pictures on the forum.

it makes me sad that your guitar isn't in "tone". it makes me sadder that you can't tell.

nice pedals, tho.
