Tone Report's Eric Tischler recently put the Electro-Harmonix Crayon Full-Range Overdrive through its paces and writes "The fact that the Crayon maintains note definition so well and is available for under $65 makes it an absolute home run for me," and "If you’re in the market for an OD, you should get your hands on The Crayon."

With "great tonal flexibility and articulation for an astonishing price," the Crayon is not to be overlooked.

Looking for a pedal to master your metal tones?

The Metal Muffs from Electro-Harmonix have been called "the finest pedals ever created for heavy metal". Massive tones that sculpt the mids and add extra ‘bite’ by boosting a narrow band of high frequencies are the hallmarks of these metal monsters.

Pete Brown of Vintage Guitar Magazine takes a look at the EHX Bad Stone phase shifter, C9 organ machine and Pitch Fork pitch shifter pedals and awards all three the Vintage Guitar Approved Gear award. Here's some of what Pete has to say:

"The Bad Stone is a useful, attractively priced small-footprint pedal."

"The Pitch Fork can open a range of notes that would be impossible to find on a standard guitar."

"The C9 Organ Machine is a digital box that may just blow your mind. Honestly, it's one of the most exciting stompboxes we've plugged into."
