I have recently discovered a whole new world of guitar pedals. There are so many types, makes, and designs of the same guitar pedals that sometimes have the smallest differences between them. It can all seem a little daunting to someone who is new to the world of effects pedals.
The guitar pedal market is expanding on a daily basis and in particular the cloning market is progressing and changing more than any other. If you look on eBay there are lots of small companies here in the UK selling cloned pedals that have appeared on some of the biggest records of the last 50-60 years and they’re doing a very good job of it, making it possible for guitarist’s to recreate their favourite guitar sounds without burning a hole in their pocket.
At the same time there are companies like ‘JOYO’ and ‘MOOER’ who are producing amazing guitar pedals at very affordable prices. On average the ‘JOYO’ pedals are just £29.99 and the ‘MOOER’ pedals £45 – £65. Although these are relatively new companies they are causing a big stir in the pedal world and if you have a spare few minutes make sure you watch some of the great YouTube videos comparing them to some of the higher end pedals on the market. The quality amazes me.
It now seems if you like guitar pedals there really is something within everybody’s budget you just have to look around. Over the coming months I am going to be doing more pedal reviews, looking at some of the ‘JOYO’ and ‘MOOER’ range and hopefully the hype surrounding these pedals.
