Ok I'm just as guilty as anyone else a using certain words and phrases to describe various pedals on this board. For example:

Amp-like
Transparent
"This X pedal kicked XX off my board!"
"I love this pedal. I have since sold it."
"The tone is in your fingers."


Anyway you get the idea. Please list additional words/phrases that could be considered to be overused here.

One could argue that the word "the" is overused. But it's still useful and necessary.

If a word effectively and accurately conveys meaning, it doesn't matter to me how often it is used. I'd put several words listed above (For example, "amp-like," "fizzy" and "transparent") in that category.

covers the entire tonal spectrum of everything you could ever want in a pedal, but im selling it because I dont use it enough.
Sounds way better than my xx, but I'll just suffer and pass along the holy grail to you.
