This site and give away has been getting a lot of buzz over the last couple of weeks. Pedal Finder, a new site for discovering pedals based on the musician’s style or particular desire has been growing at a fantastic rate. Tons of new members, tons of new reviews and new pedals are added to the system daily. Since it’s launch (approximately 3 weeks ago) we have been adding new features and improvements, so if you haven’t been there in a while, be sure to log back in and see some of the improvements!
When we created Pedal Finder, we wanted to think of a funner way to discover pedals and go beyond the standard ‘keyword’ search. Personally, keyword search limits you to what you know vs. learning and finding pedals that you might not be familiar with.. but are perfect for your style and instrument based on other musicians’ reviews.
Here are some useful links..
Base search page at Pedal Finder – You can search by keyword, by style and by look of the pedal!
Additionally, you can find Artist/Band pages as well. Here is an example of an existing band page for Arcade Fire.
Check out a Manufacturer page – providing information about the manufacturer, listing of pedals, break down of pedal categories and recent reviews. Here is the Manufacturer page for Electro-Harmonix!
Now, back to the give away. For those of you not familiar with what’s happening, the site is giving away a Mad Professor Golden Cello Overdrive/Delay ($150 value). How to enter? Just have fun with the site! Create an account, add reviews, add pedals, add YouTube links, add Artist/Band tags, etc.. all of these count as entries. You can view you entry contributions by viewing your profile. Entries are counted if submissions are approved. Entries are available to members only, so be sure to create an account before interacting with the site! You can create an account here.
