OK, so I've been really addicted to Pro Guitar Shop's videos for several months now. I am always on Youtube checking out people's reviews of guitars, amps, and pedals, but the quality is always crappy. It's really hard to get a sense of what guitars or amps sound like through someone's camera phone. With that said, I just wanted to post the link to PGS' youtube page. They really do a good job of recording, and I've made a couple of purchases based on the vids.

The only guitar store I live by is a Guitar Center, and they really don't have a good pedal selection, IMO. Being able to purchase boutique pedals, and actually know what you're getting is a big plus for me.
So, just wanted to turn other members on to their videos and pedal selection.

are you serious?

Pro Guitar Shop is as legit as you can, and this is not advertising if you think that.

He's simply expressing his concern of how awesome PGS is, and I definitely agree. Their video reviews of pedals help so much.

It's a great site, I've been investigating british style distortion/overdrive pedals recently.

I wish he used the brighter deluxe reverb more often, but that 65 soho is a very nice amp.

Wow. You're being a tool even when you aren't sure of yourself. Good job.

But that said, I do appreciate them very much. I've watched almost all the fuzz demos.

Yeah, PGS videos are incredibly helpful. Especially for those who are looking for a boutique pedal. The audio quality is great, and they use a good clean amp for testing pedals.

actually, a Box of Rock is great for a JTM45-ish gain...the CB is a higher gain (JCM style) disto.

The BOR is pretty sweet, nails those JTM45 sounds, even has that ever so slightly boomy bass of the JTM45.

Pro Guitar Shop is one of the best stores I've ever seen, and not just for guitar pedals. This thread definitely shouldn't get reported!

gotta love their vids. if you go to their website.. they have their videos in HIGH QUALITY.. its not the typical youtube compressed sound. makes it a bit better.
Andy is a great demoer and knows what he's talking about! i mean guys like jason spencer from WMS are terrible and have no skills hardly and also the gearwire? (the guy who takes the pedal out of the box and goes through the whole manual) PGS is great im buying a pedal from them pretty soon!

thanks!
and now that i see what this thread is actually about, i will contribute.
i love watching there vids, esp. because they will feature pedals that are usually a little harder to come by. i do get tired of hearing everything played through the 65 soho though. they should play through amps that more people actually use.

That's what I was looking at. I also considered the BOR, but the boomy bass was actually what turned me off. I the mad professor red distortion sounded pretty mean as well, way too expensive though.

yeah, all of mad professor stuff is mucho $$$. have you thought about the catalinbread OD/disto's?
#20
Considering both the silver kiss and SCOD. I think the SCOD is a bit rough for what I want, but its overall very nice. Also considering the radial hot british. There's too much good stuff out there. The CB appeals because it's relatively cheap.

listening to their videos is a good waste of time. my fav overdrive pedal ive come across on PGS is the lovepedal eternity. while highly regarded pedals like the ocd are good, i think the eternity is even better.
#25
love their videos.
hope they can expand their boutique amps' range and get rid of schecters. they just don't feel boutique enough to be there.

This is a bit of a bump, excuse me.

Yeah PGS is sexcellent. I've been on a bit of a buying binge recently, and when I get all of my packages, I'll throw up a nice fat NPD. I have no money left though.

Curse you Andy and your lovable.....everything!!!

I was just on their youtube channel checking out the new Big Muff Germanium, actually. Best reviews on the internet, Andy's a legend.

PGS actually reviews a good variety of gear...I think they've done reviews on all the Hardwire Pedals, the PolyTune, Digitech Whammy...along with boutique stuff.

Plus Andy is well versed in many different play styles...which is great!

PGS is great and have a lot of product demos. Andy is a great player and they're recording setup is stellar. TheToneKing on the other hand....

btw that's a pretty major bump there.

I tend to not watch their videos (I think I brought this up in an earlier thread) since the guy who reviews, however talented a player he is, uses his fingers. That's fine and dandy, but I use a pick, I want to know what the gear will sound like when I play it.

With all their assumptions that I'm rich and can afford all this overpriced cool shit that makes your guitar sound like R2D2.

Im boycotting PGS.

So does PGS. Tonefactor are awesome for their fuzz's though.

I love ProGuitarShop too, I've listened to too many of their videos, instant GAS.

Yeah PGS never mentions the faults of the product cause they're trying to sell them, not really review them. Even the Boss CH-1 chorus was described as lush and organic. That said, I don't think any microphone/recording technique can "make things sound better than they do in real life" unless there's post-processing. I'd prefer to listen to PGS than some dude with a shaky digital mic which clips at like 30 dB.

Another youtuber I really enjoy listening to is "fearedse". His recording quality is top-notch, and the gear he demos is probably more geared towards UG (high gain amps and whatnot).
