The Yuma Gold Guides to Guitar Effect Pedal Use and Technology
See below the guides we have written on Guitar Effect Pedals Use and Technology covering a wide range of subjects including guitar effect pedal design, how to use them, the different technology involved and how each of the seperate guitar effect types can modify your guitar signal chain. These help guides give an insight into how the technology works and how small changes can improve, or destroy, your tone by following your signal path from the pick-ups to the speaker.
Choosing the right pedal and using it correctly could be the difference between a top rated performance, and a total flop. I have been to a number of gigs,especially with new bands, where the guitarist has a pedal board stuffed with effects and spends half of the gig playing about with them or trying to get them to work. It is best to start small, not everyone can be like the Edge, buy cheaper effects, experiment and then decide what works best for you and your guitar style and tone requirements.
