    Well I don't like the use of the word "mojo", so I can't really help you at all...

    From experience... I believe that a good Boutique pedal will beat a good Corporate pedal every time.

    Carbon batteries.... Both Sean from Lovepedal and Marcus from M.A.D. say they sound better. I bow to their fine ears and agree. I've never taken the time to do a back to back.

    Judging from all the low quality components in big-name pedals (or generally everything budget and/or "Made in China"), I'd say I'd believe that any "boutique" (possibly handmade) pedal has a higher chance of having higher quality components than the mass-made pedal.

    Did I make myself clear? :eek:

    Well I never meant to sound demeaning, I was just curious to see who believes in these debatable aspects of effects.

    "Boutique is always better than corporate"

    That is kinda a funny statement when you think about it... I'd take the following "corporate" (which I assume means mainstream production) items:

    1959 - 1966 Fender Stratocasters
    a tycobrahe octavia
    a 1966-1970 Dallas Arbiter Fuzz Facea 1970 Univox Univibe
    an original Electro Harmonix 16 second delay
    a real Marshall Plexi

    but I'm probably bending the rules now ;)
