  1. Some of you know that I have a small YouTube channel where I run through pedals kinda sloppily.

    My personal preference is for videos where I can see how all settings work and the knobs work together but I do like the shorter videos where you see 2 or three key settings that sound good.

    But what do you prefer?

    I'm not sure whether I should look to shorten my videos and just have some tasty settings rather than go over everything.

    Hi! I voted for "show me what you got". In my personal experience is very helpful to see/hear every combinations of settings. Where I live you don't find almost anything except for boss, mxr, ehx, ecc and the most "in fashion" pedals. So, against my will, if I need something different I have to buy from internet without trying...
    Exploring a pedal in all his parts is really appreciated, even more with a description of the gear used (passive vs active bass, tube amps vs transistor, ecc). If I'm interested in something, I don't mind to spend some minutes more.

    Ah, can you put the link of your channel, please?

  3. Thanks for the response! I agree with you, if I'm looking to drop money on a pedal, I want to be sure it's worth the investment. If it has one sound, but it's a great sound, that's fine but if there's more options, I want to know: "what's the range of the tone control before I lose low end", "how does the gain and the tone control interact?"

    loop a phrase (fingers and pick), then play the exact same thing changing settings.

    I don't really have a preference, kind of depends on what pedal is being reviewed, my mood, other variables. I will say that I'm usually turned off by any pedal review/demo that is longer than 8 minutes. Just my two cents.

    Both. I like reviews that showcase good tones and also run through each parameter to show how each one attenuates the tone. Shouldn't be a reason you can't fit both in a video.
