GP's Video Roundup: 19 Guitar Effects Pedals Tested

Guitar Pedal RoundupIf you’re a reader of Guitar Player Magazine (Hunny, I swear, I only read it for the articles,) you may have caught their recent effects pedal “Pow-Wow” (July, 2007 issue.) It turned out to be a fine roundup of a whole slew of new effects, but the big news for me is that they’ve just posted video demos of nearly all of the pedals––a full 19 to be exact.

While I’m a big fan of a well-written review––I’ve been known to dabble in them myself ;)––guitar effects lend themselves particularly well to video demonstrations… let’s face it, you can hightail it down to your local guitar dealer to test drive just about any major brand guitar that you’d like, but your chances of finding a truly impressive collection of effects pedals is slim to nil.

And don’t even get me started about boutique pedals.

Anyway, these demos are rather short, and they certainly aren’t meant to be in-depth reviews, but if you’re in the market for any one of these effects (or perhaps one of their competitors,) it’ll definitely be worth your time to take a look––the ToadWorks Phantasm is worth the price of admission alone.
