Very much this. I like Andy, but he can make almost anything sound good and worth buying, but it doesn’t always seem to sound or work the same for me. I like Mike Hermans, but he also makes everything sound great. He usually goes through a lot of settings, but it’s all pretty pristine.Shadoweclipse13 wrote: ↑Sun Apr 26, 2020 7:42 pmHe does! BUT the issue I've found is that because Andy is so good, I've often found that when I get a pedal, it doesn't sound quite as good as he can make it sound, or I can't get certain tones specifically. If Andy's demos inspire me, then I go looking for Mike Herman's or Just Nick on YouTube. It's the same with Knobs: his videos are AMAZING, but are more artistic than "this is truly what the pedal will sound like in your hands".
Just Nick is very straightforward, he’ll show you the good, the bad and the ugly, and talk about them in a way that I like.
Knobs is really one of my favorites, I’ve bought quite a few pedals from his demos, but they are on the more artistic side, and very good at flexing a pedal’s muscles in every direction, so you get a feel of a lot of what it’s capable of.
