Seriously, who needs another fucking Fuzz?I'm starting to think Gibson is not moving very many of these pedals- They and online retailers are hitting me with emails every few days about these things being in stock and ready for purchase.
While I agree with what you're saying, I used to sell a ton of fuzz pedals to customers. Fuzz guys treat them like candy (I'm a fuzz guy). It's less about finding the "right" fuzz than it is about trying all the fuzz.Seriously, who needs another fucking Fuzz?
If you use a Chorus pedal, you already have one. Or two. Or three.
Wow! Sounds like a new thing. Interesting concept.
Hadn't encountered that in my decades of playing...
This is 2022. Mid/Old guys are the ones playing guitar.
Mid/Old guys have seen and tried/bought/sold everything.
We're good. Been there, done that.
I got a used Line6 500HD from a friend because I didn't have a Chorus..!
A little overkill maybe but I figured if I can't find a suitable Chorus effect
in the 500HD, maybe I don't need a Chorus! After all, I have played without one
forever. Look at my sig, SD-1, RAT, Dunlop Wah. I have a few other pedals
that I rarely use, 2 or 3? Old EH ones. 70's Big Muff and Black Finger Compressor,
a Doctor Q (stupid buy at the time...). 70's Ibanez Phaser I used to "fake play" No Quarter.
I still have to "Chorus" something out of the 500HD. Just didn't get around to it...
So, do I need another pedal?
I'm good. As are most people here. I don't need a Maestro whatever.
That line of products probably comes from a "think tank", a Marketing effort to bring
more revenues. "We can't sell more guitars? Let's sell something else our guitar
customer is interested in!" And some guy said: "Pedals?" And some other guy said:
"What if we bring back the Maestro line? They have a "Vintage value", just like
our guitars and it would be the perfect match!"
I bet you if some third guy in the room thought the idea was lame and didn't feel it
was as cool as the "bandwagon jumpers" he decided to shut up. Or he spoke and got
shut up (negative person!) or got fired.
And now, all the Marketing Heads that started the train don't understand that the
train is empty. The customers were good where they were. They didn't need to
travel the Pedal Road once more. So the Heads are whipping away at lower management
to show some Sales Results! Push push push, sell sell sell.
It's not gonna work but the people that are gonna get the blame won't be upper management
But I'm just a guy that likes/plays guitars.
I'm not some kind of Maestro or anything...
