Feel The Power with Effects at your feet

Owning one of the best multi-effects pedals or in other words, Guitar Effects Pedals enables you to access a haystack of various effects in one single unit. This makes them very attractive to guitarists looking to save space and who might be looking to consolidate a collection that’s grown a little out of hand.

Once upon a time, even the best Guitar Effects Pedals were seen as perhaps a more secondary alternative to having individual stomp boxes. That’s changed hugely. Even those of you with the best guitar effects collection might be looking to add something new to your setup, and if so a versatile multi-effects is definitely worth considering.

What is a Multi-Effects Pedal?

An effects unit or effects pedal is an electronic device that alters the sound of a musical instrument or another audio source through audio signal processing.

Common effects include distortion/overdrive, often used with electric guitar in electric blues and rock music; dynamic effects such as volume pedals and compressors, which affect loudness; filters such as wah-wah pedals and graphic equalizers, which modify frequency ranges; modulation effects, such as chorus, flangers and phasers; pitch effects such as pitch shifters; and time effects, such as reverb and delay, which create echoing sounds and emulate the sound of different spaces.

Regardless of whether you’re starting from scratch with your effects, or you’re a hardened pedal-head, big leaps forward in multi-effects pedal technology have seen these units grow in popularity, which means we now have a bigger choice to play with.

It’s worth noting that although many of the products in this guide are also amp modellers, it’s the Guitar Effects Pedals inclinations that we’re gazing at today. If amp modelling isn’t on your list of conditions, you’ve still got plenty of options – but if it’s there, why not apply it?
