Trending FX Pedals

The Delicious Audio StompBuzz is back, with the usual monthly update on the list of trending FX pedals on our site in the previous 30 days period – in this case, that is January 2021!

If this was a year like another, we would have had a deluge of new pedals released in January during the NAMM show. However, since 2021 is a pandemic year, we have seen a limited number of new pedals, but nonetheless some really intriguing ones, which inevitably ended up in this chart.

The gallery below lists the stompboxes that had the most searches in the Month of January 2021*It features brief descriptions about each pedal (mouse-over or first tap) and video demos (on click or second tap).
