The MTG Overdrive will probably run $275 Cdn. That is a huge jump from what their pedals sold for in the past (which for years were just rebranded Donner stuff with a Fender logo and double the price). That said, if they are good sounding pedals they may be worth the asking price. I do wonder if the prices are partly a marketing decision to break the association of Fender pedals with the aforementioned rebrands.They're not Mooer/Caline/Donner/Joyo/Kokko cheap, but they're not particularly overpriced, either.
They sound cold, sterile, and uninspiring to me.What dissuades you? Price? "Normalness" of sounds? Size? Too many options? Not enough options? Just curious.
Absolutely no reason to flame. If you don't like the sound, you don't like the sound. I asked, and you answered. I've heard plenty of pedals that made me wonder what all the fuss was about. You're no different.They sound cold, sterile, and uninspiring to me.
Feel free to flame away, but that's what my ears tell me. Maybe they'd sound different in person? They just don't do it for me.
And has there ever been a time when we've been this inundated with pedals?Absolutely no reason to flame. If you don't like the sound, you don't like the sound. I asked, and you answered. I've heard plenty of pedals that made me wonder what all the fuss was about. You're no different.
That's exactly what I've been thinking the last few days, as in the pedal bubble is about to burst.I was actually going to post that I thought there was a lot of "me too" at NAMM this year. There were a couple of things that I found interesting (mostly Behringer's synth stuff), but like yourself a lot of things just seemed repetitive. Even Earthquaker seems to have run out of ideas.
That's why I asked if we have reached "peak pedal".
Still, I think folks will likely hang onto those Fender pedals, unless they go full-on Kemper or Fractal. There is a degree of usability in the Fender pedals that many others lack, even though they may not sound particularly different. And who else has control knobs you can see in the dark?
