PG editors pick their favorite pedalboard-tested bargain stomps—tremolos, dirt boxes, tuners, switchers, and more.

And whether you're pushing a “buy" button or on the horn to your local music shop, pedals are among the most affordable jones satisfiers. Our editors compared notes—and their own pedalboards—to compile this list of our favorite stomps that provide a big tonal bang for under a Benny. They range from time-proven classics to thoroughly modern mojo machines. Check it out, and at these prices you don't even have to hide your wallet first.
