    Right? The dude has a wall of boutique everything. I'm sure he totally did this demo because he likes the product, and not because you can just pay him to review your stuff:

    The bigger problem I have with him is he makes EVERYTHING sound awesome, because he's just that good.

    So basically Fluff with more money changing hands?

    EDIT: BTW, these two things are very different than what Ola does IMO (and that's not a distinction I created just because I like Ola).

    Ola's videos are usually just a demo recording and maybe some knob twisting. You make the decision on your own.

    Pete and Fluff demo gear, then there's usually an explicit sales-pitchy section with a long list of positive sounding adjectives. You don't get an actual 1 to 10 review (or even an implied 10/10 because I'm getting paid!), you get a "demo" with a talk session that implies they endorse the piece. Dishonest might be too strong a word, but I don't think they're genuine.
