Quick question for the readers out there:
Do you want sound samples with reviews of, say, pedals?
I understand the initial inclination is probably "yes," but think about it before you answer because so far the amount of people reading my reviews are FAR different than the number of people listening to the sound samples.
Which I guess makes sense. I you're reading the review at work, you wouldn't want to betray your probably covert activities to your coworkers by listening to something, or perhaps you don't want to click into a new window/tab.
And then there's the variables. What kind of guitar are you using? What kind of amp are you using? How are your strings? What time of day is it? What DAY is it? All sorts of variables that might sway you into thinking that sound samples are a good bonus, but the only way to know for sure how something sounds is to play it on your gear with your hands and head with your ears.
My point is this: there are a lot of reasons NOT to listen to sound samples and because of this, I wanted to ask if you folks like mine and want more?
