The world of guitar effects pedals is pretty huge. We created ToneBuddy to help guitarists try, buy and compare the very best FX.

We've got over 500 pedals to choose from, choose up to 10 of your favourites and sign up to a monthly subscription to try them out at your leisure. It's perfect for all kinds of players:

  • Curious about the latest FX? Not many shops can match our selection, try it in your own time and we can give you a discount if you want to buy it.
  • Expanding your pedal board? Try pedals out with your setup at home.
  • Always flipping gear online? ToneBuddy is much simpler than auction sites.

How To Sign Up

  1. Sign up for a ToneBuddy account or sign in if you're an existing customer
  2. Browse products in our Shop, use the Add button to create a list of at least 5 pedals
  3. When you have 5 pedals the Red button will turn into a green Subscribe, click it and you will be taken to the Monthly Subscription
  4. Add the Monthly Subscription to your cart and checkout normally

What Happens Next

  1. We send you a pedal from your list with a box and pre-printed label for returns
  2. Send it back at your local Post Office
  3. When we receive it we'll send you a new pedal to play with

Important Info

Update: You can update your list at any time on the Manage Pedals screen within My Account. You can have up to 10 pedals in your list at any time.

Cancel: You can cancel your service at any time by accessing Subscriptions within My Account. Click cancel and post your current pedal back using your printed label before the renewal date on your monthly subscription.

Pedal Selection: We will always endeavour to send pedals from the top of your list but we can't always guarantee it due to availability.

Postage: We use Royal Mail to send and return pedals. However we can arrange return collections by Hermes instead, this can be more convenient for customers not near a Post Office.
