A lot of factors come into play that will make a pedal good or … not so good.
Think of; toughness, clarity, depth, frequency range, possibilities and all of this in relation to price. In other words, value for price.
Explanation of factors
- Toughness: how strong is the pedal, will it last for eternity or will it break down after on day of playing.
- Clarity: are there any impurities in the sound of the pedal that shouldn’t be there.
- Depth: is the sound very shallow or has the pedal got a sound that pulls you in.
- Frequency Range: how big is the difference in the peaks of the output signal.
- Possibilities: how many settings are there possible to adjust. There might not be any settings at all to adjust, all the way up to many different control option plus preprogrammed settings that simulate famous guitarists.
