Author Dave Hunter explores the complexities of the booming pedal market here, starting with the earliest guitar effects – tube amp overdrive, spring reverb, manual vibrato, and tremolo – and taking the reader through to the latest Mastortions, Tremvelopes, Giggities, and Euphorias.

Hunter asks searching questions: What were Jimi Hendrix’s pedal secrets? Is “true bypass” a good thing or not? Can your choice of battery make a difference to your sound? Are vintage components really better? The book explores the history of different effects pedals, what each type of effect does and how it does it, and the best ways in which to use and combine effects. Included are exclusive author interviews with a dozen leading pedal makers and designers, plus a cover-mounted CD with nearly 100 recorded sound samples of effects pedals.
