Pedal Reviews


Classic Audio Effects Yukon Reverb Roller

Classic Audio Effects Yukon Reverb Roller

Continuing in the tradition of reviewing and demoing the Roller series from Classic Audio Effects, today we bring you our third pedal featuring this unique design. We loved how the Stumphouse Drive and Transponder Delay worked with this particular innovation, so of course we were excited to see how it worked with a reverb effect. […]


AC Noises Vola Preamp Overdrive

AC Noises Vola Preamp Overdrive

Discovering new companies, especially ones that are overseas, is always a thrill for us here at Pedal of the Day. Today’s featured pedal comes to us from Italy, where a couple comprised of a music composer and a photographer/illustrator have combined their talents to produce a new and exciting collection of effects pedals. The Vola […]


Animals Pedal Rust Rod Fuzz

Animals Pedal Rust Rod Fuzz

We have been fortunate enough over the last few years to have reviewed the entire lineup of effects from Ninevolt Pedals, and the crew behind those affordable and excellent-sounding pedals are back with another lineup and a different name. The Rust Rod Fuzz from Animals Pedal is the first of 5 pedals from this company […]


Way Huge Electronics® Camel Toe™ Triple Overdrive MkII

Way Huge Electronics® Camel Toe™ Triple Overdrive MkII

Over the last few years, Jeorge Tripps and Way Huge Electronics® have been re-releasing some of their classic pedals, most with some sort of update, to the delight of many who enjoyed the originals. Those had become incredibly rare and expensive, but the new reissues are well-priced and easy to obtain, thus rejuvenating the brand […]


Walrus Audio Monument Harmonic Tap Tremolo

Walrus Audio Monument Harmonic Tap Tremolo

If for some reason, you still don’t know about or haven’t experienced any of the sonic marvels that Walrus Audio continually puts out into the effects community, you need to get on that quick (after you read this and watch the demo, of course). For the rest of us, it comes as no surprise that […]


Retrospec Audio Squeeze Box Compressor Limiter

Retrospec Audio Squeeze Box Compressor Limiter

It seems like we’ve had a fairly steady stream of compressors coming through the shop lately, but nothing had prepared us for today’s mammoth of a pedal that arrived from Retrospec Audio’s shop in Weehawken, NJ. The Squeeze Box is a studio-quality optical compressor/limiter that has been sized down into pedal form, albeit a pretty […]


Xvive Audio U2 2.4GHz Rechargeable Wireless Guitar System

Xvive Audio U2 2.4GHz Rechargeable Wireless Guitar System

Today, we’re checking out something a little different from our normal pedal reviews: a wireless guitar system. From Xvive Audio comes the U2 Rechargeable 2.4GHz Wireless Guitar System, a pair of wireless adapters that let you run all the stage laps and crowd-pleasing jaunts you want, without losing your signal quality or strength. This is […]


Rabbit Hole FX ‘Merkin Fuzz

Rabbit Hole FX ‘Merkin Fuzz

The Chaosmic Fuzz pedal that we reviewed and demoed last year was the first offering from Rabbit Hole FX, and since that initial effect, they’ve added a couple more to their lineup, one of which we are going to check out today. The ‘Merkin Fuzz is totally different from its big brother, but features some […]


Providence Anadime ADC-4 Chorus

Providence Anadime ADC-4 Chorus

A good chorus pedal can really add depth and dimension to your tone, while a not-so-good one can make you sound a bit cheesy and thin. Today’s featured pedal falls squarely into the former description, providing a warm, lush effect for both emulating guitar heroes of past decades and creating new and exciting modern sounds. […]


Boss RV-3 Digital Reverb/Delay (JHS Dual Mode Mod)

Boss RV-3 Digital Reverb/Delay (JHS Dual Mode Mod)

Although we have already once reviewed this pedal in its ORIGINAL form, the RV-3 Digital Reverb/Delay we’re looking at today has had a key modification added to it, making it even more impressive and useful than before. Josh and the kids at JHS Pedals came up with the Dual Mode Mod for the RV-3, RV-5 […]


Pigtronix Echolution 2 Filter Pro Delay

Pigtronix Echolution 2 Filter Pro Delay

For a number of years now, the folks at Pigtronix have been pushing, pulling and re-working the Delay genre with their lineup of echo devices, and we’re going to take a gander at one of the newest ones today. The Echolution 2 Filter Pro is an extremely flexible, option-filled, preset-ridden, multi-tap stereo modulation delay, that’s […]


Dr. Scientist Frazz Dazzler Fuzz

Dr. Scientist Frazz Dazzler Fuzz

In an effects world full of clones and “borrowed” circuits, there’s a want, maybe even a NEED, for fresh pedals, new ideas and incredible music-making machines. A company that absolutely adheres to this mantra in Dr. Scientist, who continually reinvests the proverbial sonic wheel, creating unique design after design, some of which we’ve had the […]


DC Pedals TS-777 Ultra Overdrive

DC Pedals TS-777 Ultra Overdrive

Most of us have played some version of the famous Tube Screamer pedal before, no matter what model number or differing shade of green it might be, with varying levels of likability. Some players swear by them, others want to toss them in the trash, but one thing remains constant: they’re well-known and not going […]


Stomp Audio Labs AMP Treble Booster

Stomp Audio Labs AMP Treble Booster

We recently got our first taste of what the crew at Stomp Audio Labs are capable of putting out, at least pedal-wise, so we sure were stoked to give another one of their products a go. While different in genre and appearance, the AMP Treble Booster is a high-quality pedal through and through, and though […]


Hotone Audio A Station Acoustic Preamp / D.I.

Hotone Audio A Station Acoustic Preamp / D.I.

It’s been a little while since we checked out an acoustic effect here at Pedal of the Day, but we’re coming back in strong fashion, for sure. Today’s option-filled piece of gear comes to us from Hotone Audio, and is an acoustic player’s dream pedal. The A Station is an acoustic guitar preamp with D.I. […]


SviSound SiMosFuzz Silicon MosFet Fuzz

SviSound SiMosFuzz Silicon MosFet Fuzz

We’ve had our eyes on the effects being produced by SviSound in Bulgaria since we started Pedal of the Day, and are really excited to bring you guys our first review of one of their pedals today. The SiMosFuzz is a basic fuzz pedal, with some nice goings-on inside, and a signature futuristic design on […]


Mouse Electronics Solid Drive Distortion

Mouse Electronics Solid Drive Distortion

Distortion pedals can be a tricky business – some players can get turned off even by the mention of the word, as they automatically assume these types of pedals can only be used to play loud, aggressive music. While that can be true, the good ones can also be used in many different musical situations, […]


Classic Audio Effects Transponder Delay Roller

Classic Audio Effects Transponder Delay Roller

A couple months back, we had the pleasure to review and demo a new sort of pedal, one that featured a roller wheel that allowed you to set the intensity of the overdrive. That pedal was the Stumphouse Drive Roller from Classic Audio Effects. Well, they’re taken that concept and applied it to probably our […]


Life Is Unfair Dream Left Behind Fuzz

Life Is Unfair Dream Left Behind Fuzz

Sometimes, in our wonderful world of effects pedals, one knob is all you need to produce spectacular sounds. Such is the case with today’s featured piece of gear, the Dream Left Behind Fuzz from our new friends at Life Is Unfair. Coming to us all the way from the city of Cardiff in southern Wales, […]


Providence Velvet Comp VLC-1 Compressor

Providence Velvet Comp VLC-1 Compressor

We love a good compressor to smooth out our tone a little bit, and using not too much or not too little is the real key. Today’s featured pedal gives you the flexibility you need in a compressor/limiter, with the functionality and tone of studio-grade sounding gear. The Velvet Comp VLC-1 is a perfect example […]


Vick Audio Hypocenter Delay

Vick Audio Hypocenter Delay

In our experience with Vick Audio, we have had the pleasure of testing, reviewing and demoing some of the greatest fuzz pedals we’ve come across. That said, we were pretty excited to venture into a new genre of effects from Mike Vickery and the crew, especially since it was a new and shiny delay pedal! […]


SolidGoldFX Tone Mob Model 001 Fuzz Generator – Aluminum Edition

SolidGoldFX Tone Mob Model 001 Fuzz Generator – Aluminum Edition

We are suckers for aesthetics here at Pedal of the Day, and today’s pedal just jumps right out at you (plus it look sweet in a group of pedal, too). A collaboration between the crews at SolidGoldFX and The Tone Mob, the Model 001 Fuzz Generator is an aluminum fuzz masterpiece, a pedal that is […]


Sioux Guitars Pierce Street Double Boost

Sioux Guitars Pierce Street Double Boost

Boost pedals not only make you sound louder in the mix, they are capable of pumping up the tone in a great amp as well, not to mention adding in a little bit of dirt to your sound when set right. Today’s pedal takes the boost concept even further, by giving you not one but […]


Eleca Effects EFZ-3 Fuzz

Eleca Effects EFZ-3 Fuzz

Today’s guest review comes to us from Coe S. – find him on Instagram (@coeschneider) and say Hi! You could say I have a problem. Maybe even an addiction. But at least I’m smart about it. Sometimes the urge, the need, the compulsion to buy another fuzz pedal comes on strong. What would you do? […]


Plasma Pedals Primary Fuzz

Plasma Pedals Primary Fuzz

Mmmmmm…..Fuzzzzzzz….. We’re hooked here at POTD, which is why we were once again super-excited for today’s featured pedal to show up on our doorstep. The Primary Fuzz is Plasma Pedals’ take on the classic Fuzz Face circuit. With a broad range of sounds available, both vintage and modern, this thing slices and dices any mix […]

Stomp Audio Labs White Widow Silicon Fuzz

Stomp Audio Labs White Widow Silicon Fuzz

A lot of times, you can tell if you and a pedal are going to gel from the first minute or so of playing it. Today’s featured pedal took us about 8 seconds before we knew it was a keeper. The White Widow Silicon Fuzz comes to us all the way from Brazil, and it […]


Black Cat Pedals Vibe Chorus Vibrato

Black Cat Pedals Vibe Chorus Vibrato

The first time we ever heard about the Black Cat Vibe, it was doing research on the rig of Trey Anastasio, who used to keep the original half unit in his on-stage rack (known then as the Custom Audio Electronics Black Cat Vibe). Since those particular units were pretty rare and pretty expensive, we never […]


VOX Double Deca Delay

VOX Double Deca Delay

There are many, many pedals you see on all the forums and discussion boards, and what everyone wants to trade their garbage for. Sometimes, though, you discover a gem that, while it may have been around for a while, isn’t necessarily on anyone’s super-radar. Today’s pedal, the Double Deca Delay from VOX, is exactly one […]


VFE Pedals Vader Delay Chorus

VFE Pedals Vader Delay Chorus

Today’s pedal is a fantastic example of everything a 2-in-1 pedal should be, especially when it combines two great genres of effects together. The Vader (as we assume is its proper name) is a one-off custom pedal built by VFE Pedals, and it joins together their Blueprint Delay and Choral Reef Chorus effects. While these […]


EarthQuaker Devices Bellows Fuzz Driver

EarthQuaker Devices Bellows Fuzz Driver

There aren’t many companies who deliver the goods consistently with each and every pedal they release, but one that just about has that market cornered is EarthQuaker Devices. From the most complex and innovative pieces of gear to a simple, two-knob fuzz effect (like maybe today’s featured pedal?), the musical inspiration their stuff brings out […]


JHS Pedals Bun Runner Fuzz

JHS Pedals Bun Runner Fuzz

Although we reviewed this guy a while back, it was V1, and we weren’t doing demo videos at the time, so we decided to revisit one of our favorite fuzz pedals, and update it a bit as well. We’ve included excerpts from our original review, as well as the sweet, sweet demo… We love this […]


Dedalo FX Revolver RVO-3 Overdrive Booster

Dedalo FX Revolver RVO-3 Overdrive Booster

Anyone who reads these reviews knows that we’re big fans of 2-in-1 pedals. The effect we’re looking at today is a perfect example of combining two great effects together in one pedalboard-friendly enclosure to maximize all the tone available from your instrument and amp. The Revolver RVO-3 is both and overdrive and a boost, working […]


Sioux Guitars K-D Chorus

Sioux Guitars K-D Chorus

Sometimes, a knob or two are all you need to create big, fat tones to incorporate into your sound. Today’s featured pedal comes to us from Sioux Guitars, and has that exact tonal mentality. The K-D Chorus has a simple, two-knob setup, but within those dials are a vast, sweeping expanse of sound for us […]


Electro-Harmonix Q-Tron+ Envelope Filter

Electro-Harmonix Q-Tron+ Envelope Filter

There’s something about a wah sound that just gets your body movin’ and groovin’ a little bit. Maybe because it induces memories of your favorite Blaxploitation films, or the first time you heard ‘Shakedown Street‘ live, or when you used to spin Stevie Wonder albums over and over in your youth. Whatever the case may […]


Guest Reviewer Fridays: SolidGoldFX BC549 Mini-Booster

Guest Reviewer Fridays: SolidGoldFX BC549 Mini-Booster

Today’s guest review comes to us from Coe S. – find him on Instagram (@coeschneider) and say Hi! From the get go I was interested in the small box, single knob lineup from SolidGoldFX. As much as I like to tweak sounds and create sonic havoc the appeal of a simple to use straight ahead […]
