Moog Moogerfooger MF-107 FreqBox Review

The Moog Moogerfooger MF-107 FreqBox is one of my all-time favorite effects stompboxes. It hasn’t been covered at Best Guitar Effects, so I chose it for my first review contribution. Among my collection of effects pedals, it’s been like a versatile wild haired member of the band. The Moogerfooger line of stompboxes was introduced ... Read More

Malekko Scrutator Review - Best Bitcrusher/Filter Pedal?

In order for your guitar to make sense to your computer, its signal has to be converted to a series of numbers that represent the crests and troughs of the waveform. These are called samples; the higher the sample rate, the more high-range frequencies can be accurately expressed. Those samples are then recorded as ... Read More

Electro Harmonix HOG2 Review – Best Guitar Synth Octave Pedal?

The Electro Harmonix HOG2 is “an Octave and Harmonic Generator/Guitar Synthesizer that can simultaneously generate multiple octaves and harmonics from your input signal.” Like an EHX POG2 on steroids, the HOG2 can create octave intervals from -2 to +4(!) with a couple 5ths and a 3rd in between. The HOG2 features improved algorithms and ... Read More

TWA Great Divide 2.0 Review – Best Analog Synth Octave Pedal?

Some things really are worth the wait, and if you're a fan of octave dividing pedals and analog guitar synthesis, the TWA Great Divide 2.0 is definitely one of those things. The Great Divide MkI was first unveiled back at NAMM 2011 to the awe of synth loving guitarists, but it took 2 more ... Read More

Electro Harmonix B9 Organ Machine Review – Best Guitar Organ Synth Pedal?

Electro Harmonix have been absolutely dominating the market lately when it comes to polyphonic guitar synth pedals. EHX's Superego Synth Engine, Ravish Sitar, and HOG 2 Harmonic Octave Generator have proven that quality polyphonic synth sounds can be achieved from a standard guitar signal, negating the need for one of those finicky hexaphonic pickup ...

Electro Harmonix Ravish Sitar Review – Best Guitar Synth Pedal?

Having already been greatly impressed by the fast and responsive polyphonic tracking of the POG2 Polyphonic Octave Generator, I had a feeling the Ravish Sitar was going to be something special. While its name gives away the source of inspiration for the creation of this pedal, the Ravish Sitar offers a whole new world ... Read More

EarthQuaker Devices Bit Commander Review – Best Analog Guitar Synth Pedal?

EarthQuaker Devices has been at the forefront of innovation in guitar pedals for the past few years.

Red Witch Synthotron Review – Best Analog Guitar Synth Pedal?

I love strange and bizarre guitar pedals. Any pedal that makes a guitar sound not like a guitar grabs my attention. And every time a new guitar synth pedal comes out, I've gotta try it. And a guitar synth from a company like Red Witch, makers of such gems as the Empress Chorus, Violetta ... Read More
Electro-Harmonix-Superego-Review-Best-Guitar-Synth-Pedal-99

Electro Harmonix Superego Review – Best Guitar Synth Pedal?

I like to generalize guitar players by dividing them into two categories. One kind of guitarist likes to keep things simple. They just want their favorite guitar, a good amp, and maybe an overdrive or wah on occasion. Other guitarists are a bit more extreme. They'll seek out any and every new way to ... Read More
