When it comes time to fill in the gaps on your pedalboard for a particular effect, many guitarists will agonize on the decision. The agony is one part quality and tone and 1 part cost of the pedal. What’s the best buy, how much space does it take up, what does it sound like are valid questions we struggle with when looking for a new pedal. But, when it comes to contests and giveaways, it’s hard to say no to any effect that’s being handed out with generosity. Free pedals and gear are a good thing!
So, today I decided to stray away from all the NAMM hoopla and we are going to submit to you a list of current and ongoing giveaways where you could win some new effects. At the time of this blog post all of these giveaways are active. They all have different requirements such as giving them your email address or ‘liking’ them on Facebook, but hey, on the internet that’s what ‘FREE’ means.
In the coming weeks, Pedal Finder will be adding our own giveaway to this list. We’ll let you know when that happens, but don’t wait to hear what pedal it is. Get your entries in now. Remember, every time you enter a pedal or review – you get an entry into our giveaways. So do this. Look down at your board and review what you have on it. It’s that easy. Now check out these other giveaways.
Prymaxe Giveaway: Prymaxe is giving away gear all the time and right now they have 18 mini pedals mounted on a pedaltrain that they are giving to some lucky person. Get on this or you will regret it!
