Reverbs with a pre-delay are a win, in my book. Would be interested in the price, and the added switching.

It's a compressor, so it'll make you sound more like skinny sadboys still playing twinkly emo in Space Year 2018, oh sorry

100%, it's definitely the secret to getting some good definition to a washy sound

Those photos look like someone's needed photos for an ebay and decided to use massive zoomins on the guitar-rig poster style equivalents.

And who the fuck sets things up so that everything's at about one o'clock? They've clearly decided not to have everything at twelve o'clock and done this instead. This isn't better.

Also (and I'm sorry that I've utterly roe'd this thread):

Why do they look so shit? Fender have a certain design aesthetic. If they made pedals that were sonic blue, fiesta red, CAR etc and had pointless pearloid/anodized/tort panels on the front I would definitely buy one. Even if it was just a tube screamer.

They'll wait till everody else does that and in 10 years after that they'll introduce that as a cutting edge idea

I realise that's what they're trying to do, but they look more like bad Joyo copies of Strymons.

I think the color coding LEDs are a nice idea, if every pedal manufacturer adopted that it'd be nice to see what's on in the dark. I might be over thinking it, it's probably more like a solution to a barely existent problem.

Are they not going to be making guitar pedals any longer then?
