I've read this, or something very similar to the thread title countless times from people. I never understood this logic when it comes to pedals or other gear. Seriously, who cares if the audience can't tell between Boss and Strymon. Can't YOU tell the difference between different pedals? Aren't you playing for YOUR enjoyment and satisfaction? I understand if you aren't picky, or simply don't want to spend a lot of cash on something, but using the audience's ear as a way to justify gear that might be questionable (or just plain suck) makes zero sense to me. Btw, I'm not saying one pedal is better than the other. We all hear things differently, so let's not turn this into a pedal VS pedal thread. I just want to hear from people who go by this logic, so that i can have a better understanding of the "I don't care if the audience doesn't care" motto.
