The Year in Gear 2019

The 60+ guitars, amps, pedals, basses, and accessories that stood out from the crowd and earned our coveted Premier Gear Award this year.


Electro-Harmonix Triangle Big Muff

The Big Muff is legendary and its clones are legion. But, curiously, the original that inspired them all—known commonly as the “Triangle” Big Muff—might be its least famous incarnation. And regardless of how authentically EHX’s new take on the Triangle nails every quality of an original, it occupies a killer niche in the Big Muff tone spectrum. You get rowdy, raspy, but also singingly toppy tones—all at an unbeatable price.
