Ever wonder how those awesome little stomp-boxes came to be?
Who invented the first effects pedal and how did they become so popular?
Find out in our latest blog. Everything from the first pedal devices to the advent of transistorized circuits.
Check it out!

"It wasn’t until the advent of guitar pedals and effects units that the guitar player would start arousing interest and making the inevitable shift."

I call bullshit. Blues guitarists in the US started fooling around with faulty tubes and poorly seated tubes in order to generate distortion (and just cranking them to 10) long before anybody made pedals.


Isn't this type of thread illegal anyway?

Great, another shitty blog about pedals.

That's the advantage of being such a distance from Yianni. I can continue to live my life without fear of stumbling upon his dark terror.

That's nonsense. Evolution is just a theory. Everyone knows that pedals were made by Allah.
