Carl Martin Pedals : Guitar Effects Explained

A guitar effect unit or pedal is an electronic or digital device that alters the input sound from the guitar pick ups.The modified sound is then output to a guitar amplifier or to another effect pedal to be modified further. Our web site has prices for guitar effect pedals including all makes and types of effect. We also have prices for boutique effect pedals. Common effects include:

Most modern effects use solid-state electronics eg computer chips however some old and vintage effects use mechanical components like spring reverb and vacuum tubes. Guitar effect pedals can be either small metal box pedals that are used on the floor eg “stompboxes” or a full rack mounted electronic effects units. Guitar Effect Pedals are typically controlled by a footswitch, either on the pedal, or as a seperate unit on the floor. Guitarists have used effects for many years to modify the sound from the guitar and to create new and exciting sounds for use on new recordings. There are many makes of guitar pedal on the market, from mass produced, cheap guitar pedals, to expensive custom made pedals that are hand made and used by famous guitar players. Guitar pedals are typically used on stage fitted to a guitar pedal board where the guitarist can switch on and off various effects during a live performance to replica the original recording.
