About Guitar Pedals

Guitar pedals are an exciting and cost effective way to expand, enhance and radically change the sound of your guitar. In the 60s, rudimentary fuzz boxes and wah pedals changed the world of music with their fresh new sounds. Since then, effects pedals have come a long way while remaining somewhat traditional. The most cutting edge technology is now available at your feet with the option of sounding as futuristic or as retro (or both!) as you want.

Generally, effects come with two main types of device: single pedals and multi-effects units. Single pedals offer up one (sometimes a few variations) type of sound, such as an overdrive or a phaser. Guitarists pick the ones they like and hook them up sequentially to form what we call pedalboards. This way, individual effects pedals can be subbed in and out as tastes or needs dictate.

Multi effects units are larger devices with many multiples of effects types. These are available to select (via multiple footswitches) and build sounds from. Completed combinations of FX parameters are saved to the unit's memory as 'patches' for later recall. Multi effects units are useful for guitarists who need a wide palette of sounds available to them.

Many companies produce guitar pedals. Multi-effects pedals tend to be made only by the bigger companies such as Line 6, Boss and Zoom. Single compact pedals are manufactured by these same companies in addition to numerous boutique builders and amplifier companies. There is a fascinating array of distortion pedals, fuzz pedals, looper pedals, modulation, reverb, delay and so on.

Each of our guitarguitar UK stores keeps an exhaustive selection of pedals. Pedals of all types, descriptions, colours and size are on offer to see, try and take home! Our full selection is of course always available here on our website too!

Frequently Asked Questions about Guitar Pedals

That very much depends on the player! Most players use at least a small selection: perhaps a tuner, an overdrive and a reverb or delay. Other players base their entire musical vocabulary around the use of effects and in this case, they can have literally dozens. Multi-fx also plays a part. Electric guitar players who like to use lots of processing will frequently opt for a multi-fx unit, often with additional stomp boxes for specific tones. Part of the fun with effects is that no one can really dictate things to you...just do whatever you want in order to sound how you want!
An effects loop is a handy feature on some amplifiers that allows you to 'insert' your modulation and ambient effects into the amp's signal at the appropriate place to make everything sound great. If you use your amplifier for overdrive and distortion, you may find your reverb and delay pedals sound really forced and obvious while they are connected in the usual manner. This is because they are being fed into the amp's gain section and being overloaded. The preferred method would be to have the reverb and delay occur after the gain section. This way, everything sits together better and sounds more natural. This is what an effects loop does! You take two cables and connect the appropriate pedals (modulations, reverbs, delays) into the effects loop's 'send' and 'return' jacks to complete the loop. These pedals can sit alongside your distortions and wahs etc with no problems at all but they are not connected in line with them. Your other pedals go in the front as normal whilst these sneak in where they will sound best. Drive pedals are definitely not to be used in effects loops for any reason at all...you have been warned!
Yes, there is a generally agreed upon order to correctly chain your pedals. But remember there are no hard and fast rules! Here is the the general consensus: tuner first, then wah pedal, followed by compressor and then your drive pedals. This is then followed by modulation effects (chorus, flanger etc) and finally ambient stuff such as reverb and delay.
You are not unplugging the input jack! Connecting your guitar cable to the input of a pedal switches it on and begins to drain its power. Remembering to disconnect the input jack will save you a lot of hassle and battery money!
No, the connections for almost all guitars, effects pedals and amplifiers are universal 1/4" so you do not need to hunt down any special equipment. If you only have one guitar cable though, you'll need another. 10-15ft is enough for most uses until you are playing on stages! To use an effects pedal, simply start with the guitar, connect a 1/4" jack cable to the output as normal, plug the other end of this cable to the input of the pedal (it should light up in some way since this is the normal way to 'turn on' a pedal), take another cable of the same style (i.e. a normal guitar cable) and connect it from the output of the pedal to the input of the amplifier. You're good to go!
