Product reviews

Gear Zone

Welcome to the Gear Zone – product reviews

Personally do I often get caught by a person’s excitement about a certain guitar or piece of equipment. When this happens I want to find as much information about that item as possible. Not necessarily product reviews with specifications and data – that’s always available on the manufacturer’s website. I want users personal experiences, their considerations and stories about that product. That’s the type of information you’ll find here.   

I’ll write about products that I use, have considered using or for some reason have checked out. My honest and personal opinion. I’ll let you know what I expected before I started using the item and after I’ve used it. If you’re looking for detailed specifications you’ll have to visit the manufactures website. These posts are about  my experiences, but of cause you’ll only get the technical information needed to understand what’s special about the item.

Below you will find links to my product reviews

Here’s an overview of the product reviews I’ve done, so far – enjoy 🙂

It’s wise to use money on a buffer. Especially if you have more than a couple of pedals between your guitar and amp or using long cables. You can read the review here.

If you’re into gear, you can surf around on this blog. Try for instance to look in my “amps and pedals” category.

If you have ideas of a certain type of product, or maybe a certain brand that you want to hear what I think of, please let me know. If you are a manufactor or distributor of interesting products that you want my honest opinion about, feel free to contact me 🙂

    Fed idé. Glæder mig til at følge med herinde.
    Det kunne være spændende, at høre om dine erfaringer med diverse buffere til pedalboard.
    Derudover kunne det også være interessant at høre din mening/test af pickupper 🙂

      Thanks Mads, that’s a great suggestion … the tc flashback will definitely be on the list for reviews – coming up soon I guess.
      All the very best

    How about talking about the difference between overdrive/distortion/fuzz and then giving your opinion on what is better for what.

    Also since this is something i assume is meant to reach an above average crowd, talking about the order of your pedals and giving the long speach about how the tuner is an evil sound-sucking pedal 😛

    Have a good weekend 🙂
