Which pedal demos for you are the best / worst? Looking to find some good demos to watch.

For me a couple of the best would be:

Sean Halley (Line 6)
Tore from TC Electronic
Andy at PGS

Am i the only one who doesnt enjoy gearmandude demos? He seems like a cool guy and everything but doesnt seem to make anything sound good?!

Pete Thorn is my favorite. I also like watching GMD a lot of times just for the commentary..... dude cracks me up.

There are a bunch that are great... but my faves are:

Mike Hermans/PopInToTheChemist
Just Nick
Pete Thorn
Burgs

I love watching GMD's demos. The dirty amp thing and no reverb makes it a little tough to be useful as a pure demo, but they're usually a good time.

Just Nick. Clear and concise. One of the best explanations on buffers I have ever heard.

Brett Kingman (formerly known as Burgerman666 and Burgs). His demos are fantastic. If there's a drawback to his demos, it's that he's so good at recording them, he makes everything sound good. : ) Head over to his YouTube channel, and you'll come away with a list of stuff you have to have a mile long ... Sort of the ultimate Gear Page problem, really.

I've gotten to the point where I check his channel nearly daily to see what he's demoing. He updates stuff about once a week, sometimes a bit more, sometimes a bit less, at least fairly recently.

What makes a great demo? Little talking, playing through a few different amps and guitars or a common combination, and sound quality (micing) are a few that come to mind but what else makes a decent or good demo a great one?

PGS Andy
Burgs
Pete Thorn

They almost always bring out the strengths in the pedals as well as representing them accurately, IMO.

Mike Hermans at Prymaxe is fabulous. Very GAS inducing work. andy's work is classic at PGS, but the demod burgs does are the best PGS demos now. Jet City is also very good. Mike Hermans is the top.
