Is this the prototype of a typical loudmouth guitar shop salesperson? ?

    Huh? Other than his glasses make him look like a bug, there's nothing going on here.

    Looks like he could only get a third shift gas station job by appearance. I agree with the list.

    Oh he’s ok. He’s got a lot of stuff going on on his head, the beard, the big glasses the stingy fedora. But I don’t find the way he presents himself offensive in anyway. He speaks very clearly, gets to the point quickly and is enthusiastic in that metal dude sort of way.

    One complaint that I have with a lot of these demos is the way people play. I wish they would just strum a simple chord so that I could hear what the device is doing to the signal, then play a lead riff. All the settings sounded almost the same on this vid.

    He's the Guy Fieri of pedal demos.

    Almost seems like a parody video. I love it when the bypassed or "clean" tone is almost as dirty as the tone with the pedal engaged.

    IIRC this guy is the lead designer for MXR, or something along those lines. His personality came across a bit abrasive the first few videos I saw him in, but he knows his stuff. Not everyone is going to have the chill demeanor of Brian Wampler or Jamie Stillman when showcasing their products.

    I was expecting something really bad from the OP’s post. It was actually a decent pedal demo. The dude wasn’t offensive at all. Just has his own sense of style that he likes. No biggie.

    Doesn't this guy have a brother too, that does the same demo thing? ( it's been a while...)
    He's annoying, yet likeable-
    Just like me!!

    You’re trying to read into something that’s not there. It’s a typical gear ad.

    That jangly treble tone is super annoying. And yeah you hear it all the time in guitar stores.
