    I have to admit, I have a soft spot for Andertons since they were my local mom and pop guitar shop for about 20 years until I moved to California in 98. The Captain was about 4 years younger then me which was a lot when your in your late teens early 20's. His Old man ran the store back then.

    They both are. It's rare that I can get through one full minute of an Anderton's Music video clip.

    It's one of my locals too, well about 40 minute drive. I used to go to the old store before it moved to the current place. Haven't bought much from them in recent years for one reason or another though. I nearly walked into one of their videos a while back, but it wasn't Chappers or The Captain, another guy I think called Raba or something similar.

    I agree with the 'guitarists Top gear' comment; I watch as much for entertainment as information and I always end up trying gear in person anyway.

    I think Pete THorn is the most professional. From the Andertons group i think Robear is the better of the bunch.

    Andertons has a nice channel, everything looks and sounds good and they can play which makes it easier to watch. I will say those guy have it made with all the gear they have to play with.

    I missed an 'e', but that's the guy. I like his videos too, a different style to Rob but interesting all the same.

    I'm willing to accept it was a truly blind test (would have been easy to rig it, but I don't see why they would have). In which case Chappers knows his tones!

    I liked the sound of that Victory. And also interesting, the Boss sounded good, and it was just mainly the evidence of the noise-gate patch that revealed it.

    I could definitely relate to their discussion regarding the 5150. Our other guitarist has a 5150 III, and it just doesn't sound natural (IMO) with the gain backed off for classic rock...

    I like humor but when it's 60% of a review video it wears on me. Especially when it's a product I am interested in buying and I have to scroll through the timeline to where it looks like someone is playing through it.

    I much prefer the videos where someone is playing through the reviewed gear and someone else is dialing it around whilst they play through it.

    I like humor too, but I don't want it in gear reviews. Honestly, I wish these people would just shut the f*** up! No talking... just play. If the nozzle twins at Anderton's had any comedic ability, I might consider giving them a pass. At 15, they might have invoke a chuckle or two... but I doubt it.

    They forced you to watch their video and become annoyed?

    YouTube is full of videos of people playing and not much chatter. Anderson's do very well and have such a big following because they did things a little different.

    Never let cogence get in the way of pointless comment.

    No but as I said if all you want is to hear how it sounds and see what the dials do you have to scroll through the video for the bits where they don't look like they are fapping each other with their rapier like British witticisms.

    IMO they do a better job then the ToneKing that guy has a lot of amps im interested in but all he ever does is clean and a high gain with a scooped middle. I never hear a classic or crunch sound from his reviews and he never turns the mids up where you can actually hear what they do.

    First i want to start off with \m/ one of those badboys
