Guitar Specials  |  The Joy Of FX 2020 Edition  


The updated 2020 version of 'The Joy of FX' is available now.

Are you the type of player who’s satisfied with a simple wah-wah, drive and tuner (okay, and maybe tremolo and a reverb, too…)? Or is your ISS-sized pedalboard in danger of taking up most of the stage?
Regardless of your pedal preferences, it surely won’t have escaped your attention that in recent years, there’s been a revolution going on in guitar-effects to rival those in the disparate but parallel worlds of craft beer and modular synthesis.

The world’s boutique makers have been warming up their soldering
irons and putting in the late nights to deliver us a truly unprecedented
choice of innovative stompboxes. Nowadays, if you can imagine a
guitar effect, you can bet someone, somewhere will be working hard
to make it a stompable reality – read our Builder Profiles tofind out
what some of these pioneering pedalmakers have in store.

With such an overwhelming number of pedals on offer, which
should you buy next? Our monster Top 50 Effects In The World Today
feature ranges from spectacular single-function vintage-style units all
the way through to the very latest ultra-creative guitar-synth hybrids.

Thanks for reading and enjoy your romp through the stompers…
