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.

Eventide effects are typically so rich with options that you brace yourself for a night of study before you plug in. What’s so lovely about the Rose is its relative approachability. Sure, you can invest a lot of time crafting presets and mastering the pedal’s impressive capacity for blends within those presets, but you can just as endlessly explore its expansive tone range through the most basic controls.
