Stomping Grounds: 25 Pedals Reviewed

Once a year, Christmas comes a little early at Premier Guitar. That’s what it feels like when our offices are flooded with a heaping pile of pedals in anticipation of our yearly Pedal Roundup. Of course, this year was no different. As we continue to grow our audience, so does every pedal manufacturer’s interest to be included in our yearly pedal extravaganza.

Unfortunately, we can’t possibly include every single pedal we receive. If we did, you’d be holding a Premier Guitar issue three to four times its normal size, with a back brace around your mid-section to help support its weight! We have, however, managed to pick out what we think is a very nice selection of pedals that should please the wide-ranging and ever-changing gear pallet of our diversified readership. You’ll find everything from killer reverb pedals to new phasers and delays to overdrive/distortion stomps to compressors, and much, much more.

We’ve also assembled an industrious bunch of gear junkies (initials are at the end of each review) to pore through these pedals and offer up quality reviews that should definitely help you make an informed decision the next time you hit the web or local music store in search of that next gotta-have-it pedal for your board. There’s something for everyone, and we feel privileged that you’ve chosen us to help you make your next pedal purchase decision. Enjoy!
