    Real blooze daddies don't need no petals because they plug straight into their maps.

    Andy of PG (now at Reverb) and Brett are really the only ones that consistently play both single notes and strum chords through an amp that most people are familiar with and get right to it without a bunch of verbiage that we already know. Everyone else are pathetic in one way or another, although once in awhile a gem from Just Nick, plus I like his personal style. I gain no knowledge from Anderton's, but they are entertaining. Danish Pete is the player of the whole bunch. I just love to listen to him play whatever he is demoing. He is also subtle about how he really feels about the product without pissing off the manufacturers.

    I'd argue the lack of chords is due to the Noodling Majority that watches pedal demos. These are the same people that used to post angry comments about Andy's pick-less playing ruining the demo of a pedal (???) or claiming that the mini-songs Pete Thorn writes to demo pedals hide how the pedal actually sounds (???).

    Do you play with the tippy-skin of your thumb and index finger? I don't. In my experience, playing with a pick vs. fingers immediately increases volume and treble of my signal.

    You should look at more fuzz pedal reviews then. The one effect where you want to hear it mainly on single note noodling, and the guys always play chords.
