Yeah. We're crazy. Every year, the Guitar Player editors drive themselves insane reviewing a massive number of new and cool effects pedals.

Last year, we did 60 reviews, and it almost killed us.

But, in a tragic example of "How Soon They Forget," those same editors are looking to acquire and evaluate up to 100 pedals or more in one single issue for the July 2014 GP

Want a little preview?

Well, don't hold us to an exact number—or even the exact pedals listed here—as things can change drastically during the review process, but the following boxes are what we are currently evaluating.

Did we miss one of YOUR favorite new pedals for this year? List it in the Comments Section, and we will try to seek it out. Now, please excuse us, as we've got to get back to assessing the sonic awesomeness (or lack thereof) of all these crazy stompboxes...
