Gearmanndude Luther Drive

What does Jack Black have in common with Gearmanndude? Well for starters they both have a great sense of humor and play guitar. Despite a lot of comparisons with their voice and Gearmandude's anonymity nobody can deny their popularity with what they do. I think Gearmanndude may even have a greater appreciation for pedals than I do although could that be possible? He has achieved a certain cult-status among guitar players and gear hounds for those that troll the Youtube channel late at night. His videos are just as informative as they are entertaining and he takes full advantage of the fact that many people think he may be wearing the same snake-skin boots as Jack Black(I'm still waiting for the SNL parody). GMD has something us guitar players always covet..... and that is "chops". He has an amazing ability to entertain us with his skills as a musician and keep us in suspense of his latest video demonstration of gear. It's no wonder that, due to his popularity and love of all things pedal, he would create a device that rival his favorite effects. As he puts it, "Some say that imitation is the best form of flatery.... and some say it just pisses them off". With that in mind... even Analogman endorsed his appreciation of the Sunface effect in his Lutherdrive. His favorite overdrive, the fabled Maxon 808, is also eerily similar. He has taken full advantage of his cult-status to persue all things tone-related and you can't blame him for his passion. His pedal is a lasting tribute to Johnny Cash's guitar player Luther Perkins.
