The author also dissects chains used by top guitarists in creating memorable recordings. The accompanying CD features standard as well as unusual sounds from a wide range of pedals, as well as classic combinations used by the guitar grates. Players may rave about swamp ash, alnico pickups, and all-tube tweed circuits, but they universally acknowledge that one of the most critical ingredients of great tone can lie patched between guitar and amp: the effects pedal. While our guitars generate the music and our amps belt it out to the world, the effects that we put into the chain can radically alter it beyond recognition, or subtly smooth it into a lush, multidimensional river of sound. Nothing changes your sound more entirely than the humble effects pedal and the difference between chart pop and heavy metal can come at the stomp of a foot. Effects Pedals For Guitar celebrates the diversity of types and makes of units available, both old and new, from the weird to the wonderful, the harsh to the heavenly.

There is a detailed description of the "Backbone" effects units and some informative interview [...]
