Click HERE to follow along with every pedal reviewed, dating back to 2019, and updated with each new pedal we review and demo!

The same will be true for the prices, and the amount of data and analysis will continue to grow through the year!
What brands, effect categories, or price points do you want to see get reviewed and demoed more often?
As of the time of this posting, the average and median scores handed out are both 7.7 out of 10. Certainly representative of the strong showing by the market and pedal building community in 2021. The average price of any pedal reviewed on Guitars For Idiots currently sits at $140. High, but that is increasingly becoming commonplace. It is certainly influenced by some heavy hitters from Strymon, Walrus Audio, and Chase Bliss as well.
Here’s a breakdown by effect type as well!
You can also check out the average price and score per effect type, which will help add further context to future reviews. How does this pedal compare to all the others in its effects type on average? In terms of price, score, or whatever categories we deem important!
So far, overdrive pedals reviewed on Guitars For Idiots average a price of $112 and a score of 7.7 out of 10. Amp and cab sim pedals have the highest scores and prices by far, with an average of 8.1 out of 10 and $292 per pedal.
If you were going to make a pedalboard with the best pedals from each major category (sorry boost and utility pedals), it would look something like this:
Now that is a pretty impressive board if I say so myself…
Hopefully this living google sheet will become a valuable tool for exploring all the gear we review!
