Not sure if this has been done.

Rocker of snakeskin boots/guy who reviews gear.

Tends to be good for a laugh.

I appreciate his fairly candid reviews. Some are convinced that he is actually Jack Black.

NC relative to most of the other effect pedal reviewers on the internet. Fairly entertaining and usually a good time-waster when they forget to block youtube at work.

all I remember is he sets up like 20 pedals, and then says how much he thinks reverb sucks.

Cool reviews yes.

And his voice actually quite sounds like Jack Black's.

He needs to review AEN's manual tremolo-mojo preserving-true-true-bypass pedal.

What reason is there to think this isn't Jack Black? It's Jack Black. Why is it Jack Black? Because it's really obvious it's Jack Black.

It's not Jack Black, this man frequents a guitar store in Louisville called the Guitar Emporium. I see him in there all the time, boots and all.

I think it's great that he can get the exact same so-so blues-metal tone out of anything he demos. Gotta get the chuggas in there. What use is the guitar with the fucking chuggas?

Chugging does rule. Fancy boots, I dunno.

What a guy in his position ought do is show how gear can sound, ideally making it sound good. I think he does okay with that. Most YouTube gear demos have bad playing and bad audio. I think he does alright, but not great.

Here's my favorite YouTube demo of a piece of gear:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YuM-yLNt ... ata_player

He actually records songs using the amps, mics em up and all, and as far as engineering metal goes, he's got the knack I'd say. Another great one is his demo of how he gets his awesome drum sounds, narrated by Victoria Beckham. He's a bit of a goofball.

Fancy boots, ehh. But at least you can get a sense of what a pedal might be capable of, if nothing else then by extrapolation.

It just sounds like somebody playing some bullshit Guitar Center riffs through a solid state practice amp with a clean and dirty channel. It's the most lonely guitar related thing I have ever seen in my life.

My younger brother has been running my/his Ibanez Les Paul copy into an OCD on the way to my/his Yamaha TC50. It sounds like the word of God up against those clips.

What's the word on Dr Z amps? Are they marketed directly at tone lawyers or what?

He seems ok for what he does. His videos are not useful for me at all because of the sort of riffs he plays tells me nothing about how something would sound for what I'd play. How come no one demos interesting chord work? Meh.

BoyWithABand has some ok reviews also. Again, not the best, but some are at least funny if not informative.

Also, PremierGuitar has lots of reviews, sometimes good, on YouTube. Their dude reminds me a little of Minotaur029

The premierguitar guy is good. Pretty non-douche and he seems to be able to play in a variety of styles to suit the stuff he's demoing.
