A guitar pedal is a necessary accessory for guitar players. You don’t want to play the same old boring clean guitar sound of your guitar, right? A guitar pedal adds variety to the sound your guitar produces. It’s also one way of improving your guitar skills, if you’re looking for something to new to grind with.
A guitar pedal, depending on the type, can create various sounds and effects that add color, loudness and angst to your normal guitar sound. Example of a guitar pedal is the Distortion pedal. It amplifies your guitar sound to overdrive levels, thus, making the sound distorted. You can do a lot of stuff with the distortion pedal. Most rock guitar players can’t live without this effect. You can choose either you wanted a light distorted sound, or a heavy, grinding sound.
Guitar pedals can add other effects to your guitars too. The wah pedal creates a “wah” sound, which can be controlled by foot. The delay effects add delay sounds to the guitar.
Placing all those pedals in your pedal rack would be impossible, with the number of effects pedal available in the market. The solution to this mess is combining a huge variety of customizable effects into one package. This is what we call the multi – effects processor. They are usually digital and cheap compared to the analog ones and you could obviously do more with it. You can make your own effects using all the available effects presets.
