Guitar Review! Home of guitar pedal, pedal board, amp, and guitar reviews.

As musicians we go online to watch and read reviews of new and used gear. You want as much information as you can get before spending your hard earned money. Musicians are never satisfied, or short of opinions. This website is a compilation of gear purchases combined with lessons learned. Maybe you can add some comments and throw your hat into the ring as well while you’re here.

Who Played the Peavey Mace Amp?

Seems like I end up hearing classic songs lately and wonder "what amp did they use on that?" That very thought came to my mind when playing "Any Way You Want It", I wondered - what did Neal Schon use for those screaming lead solos on that classic song? A few Google's...

Butler Silver Hammer Amp Video Review

This is a video review and demo of my Butler Silver Hammer guitar amp - which is a PTP (point to point) hand wired Plexi style amp. It's like a Marshall Plexi, but the difference is that this amp actually has 2 channels (one clean, one overdrive), AND this amp has a...
