I was thinking about this last week when I was researching some info to start building my own pedals. I thought....none of this would be possible without the internet or at the very least it would be very, very difficult. There are a ton of sites that sell kits and schematics for cloning any pedal out there. That would be very hard without the internet. Also, think of all the gear you have bought because you watched a few demos on youtube. In the old days,you read about a piece of gear in a magazine and if you were lucky your local store might have it for you to try. It would have been rare order a pedal via mail order based on a magazine article alone. There are lots of other examples so as Lucidology always says...."What say you?"
