The Comparinator

Tuesday, December 9, 2008| by Will Chen

I typically don’t blog about other blogs. However, I found a site which I found extremely cool yesterday. Anthony Stauffer has created a site called oldtonezone with an incredible distortion/overdrive pedal shootout. Using a unique control he wrote he named The Comparinator, you can listen to an A/B comparison of 2 different pedals which toggles in real time. To ensure the tones are evaluated on an even playing field, a Fender Blues Junior was used with consistent microphone placement for all the clips.  The results?  Well, if you’re looking for some bluesy grind and unsure of what pedal is for you this site is an excellent starting point.
