There are no words more musical to my ears than ‘pedal sale’ appearing in my inbox. I don’t need much excuse to add something fresh to my pedalboard on a normal day, never mind when there’s a whole weekend of Memorial Day guitar sales tempting me with discounted stompboxes. It doesn’t help my pedal addiction, but Sweetwater’s Memorial Day offering of up to 40% off guitar pedals is the one sale that’s really got my attention this weekend.

With offerings from pedal stalwarts like JHS, Line 6, and EarthQuaker Devices as well as more esoteric devices like those from Catalinbread, Red Witch, and Red Panda it’s an all-encompassing sale that’s sure to tempt any pedal lover. Having owned and reviewed more pedals than I know what to with, and recently selling my unused second pedalboard plus pedals, it’s about time to start adding some more to my collection, so here are the 5 pedals I’d go for in the Sweetwater Memorial Day sale.
