    No commercial pedal will ever sound good unless someone sticks a bright blue led in it and charges three times what you paid for it at GC.

    No pedal may be called a previously known name, ie. KLON:confused: , REEtzafRAtzitz:crazy or Rangemaster:nono .

    You can have two of each pedal without being seen as greedy.

    This isn't a "law" but more of a law in nature. I find a direct comparison to the way that fellow fisherman can't resist peering into each other's flybox just the way guitarists can't resist oogling each other's pedalboard.

    Corrollary: You can still be considered non-greedy by having two or more of the same pedal as long as they have different settings or functions, i.e., one ZVex SHO at the front of the effects chain for boost and one at the end for line driver/buffer purposes.

    Pedal law?

    Eddie Griffin says that's a "Pedal Law!"

    You have to have at least one where, after describing it you can say, "And I found it on ebay.....only 30 bucks!"
