Guitar Effects Pedals - the Practical Handbook

Front Cover
Hal Leonard, Sep 1, 2004 - Music
(Book). It's a golden age for guitar effects pedal users and makers right now, with over 40 years of design experience and musical experimentation to draw on. Your choice includes the original, pioneering "vintage" models, or souped-up "clones" from more contemporary designers. Dave Hunter spells out the pros and cons of both in this uniquely comprehensive guide. In a guitarist-friendly style, the book explores: what each type of effect does * how pedals work * the best order to connect pedals * and how to make the most of the pedals you have. Also includes exclusive interviews revealing eight top pedal makers' radically diverse approaches to building effects.
