Guitar Pedal Reviews

Deciding on what guitar effects pedals to get can be daunting if you are a beginner. In this section, you can read my reviews of pedals I have played over the years.

Wondering what guitar pedal to get?

I've got lots of guitar pedals - some expensive - some really cheap. I like most of them, and on this section of my website, I'll talk more about them and sometimes give some sound examples in video format.

Guitar Effects Pedal reviews

I have gone through quite a few stomp boxes through the years, and nowadays there is so much to choose from. Boutique pedals are everywhere, and people seem willing to pay the price of a good amp to get a guitar pedal. Things have really changed. On the other hand, some of the big manufacturers, like DigiTech, DanElectro and others are coming out with some really nice, inexpensive guitar pedals that sometimes question the need to go the boutique route. I'd like to mention a few pedals that I like.

I have also written up a list of the Best Distortion Pedal - add your comments to it.

I also want to mention my friend Bob, who builds some really nice sounding pedals. Take a look at what he has on his Duh Voodoo Man's Home-Built Guitar Effects Pedals.
