Paid demos—what matters is the demo. Yeah, they’re trying to show off the good points of a pedal. Thats not bad. That’s what I’m gonna try to do too, when I get a pedal. The problem if there is one is the limitations of hearing them over YouTube, not he fact that a good player is being paid to be a good player. They aren’t reviews. I don’t generally care what anyone says about a pedal in a review, it’s like, just their opinion man. Though you can become familiar with, say, the TPS guys and develop a feel for how their opinions mesh with your own. And back and forth discussion on TGP is a little different, and in my view potentially more valuable, because you can ask questions and get an idea where others are coming from, as long as you exercise some judgement..
