After listening to sound-clips from various pedal manufacturers, I've come to the general conclusion that nobody know how to do a good pedal demo. This is of course an overstated generality, but still, there are very few pedal demos that are worth listening to. Here is my thought process: If I'm a pedal manufacturer, then I want you to buy my pedals. You would think I would put time and effort into creating some good sounding demos that would convince people that my gear is worth buying! But NOOO!! It seems that many clips are done with RadioShack mics with the delay on and reverb wide open! Anyway! Maybe we should write to these pedal makers and ask why their pedal demos sound less than stellar. A bad clip makes me wonder about people's competency, which doesn't boast well for their pedals.
