Lovepedal Hermida Audio Dover Drive review

Thursday, March 27th, 2014

Every once in a while a pedal pops up with a special appeal to us Gilmour nerds and with obvious references to a legendary overdrive pedal, I had to check out this one. Here’s my review of the Hermida Audio Dover Drive from Lovepedal. Like many of you, I’m sure, I though “a Tube Driver [...]

Effectrode Helios Tube Fuzz review

Tuesday, February 11th, 2014

The fuzz pedal appeared in the mid 60s and with it the whole pedal revolution started. The recent explosion of clones and boutique pedals has given the old fuzz pedal a renaissance and while some stick to the classic designs, others are exploring new ground. Here’s my review of the Effectrode Helios. The term fuzz [...]

Skreddy Pedals P19 review

Tuesday, December 17th, 2013

The P19 from Skreddy Pedals is definitely one of the most talked about Big Muff clones out there. No wonder really as Marc Alhfs knows a thing or two about Big Muffs. I’ve had my eyes on one for some time and I finally got the chance to try it out. Here’s my review. I [...]

Mach Analog Tone Morph review

Friday, September 6th, 2013

Big Muffs comes in all shapes and forms and while some stick to cloning the original circuits others offer something new to the legendary design. Mach Analog Tone recently released the Morph – a dual effect based on the ram’s head and triangle Big Muffs. Here’s my review. A couple of years back I did [...]
