Just wondering... how many of you subscribe to the following Mojo beliefs?
You forgot to include:
"None of the above".
^ what he said. Hype is Hype. :NUTS
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?
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
