Guitar Effects Pedal Reviews

What is so important about which guitar effects pedals you use and why do I think it is important to have a page devoted to guitar effects pedal reviews?

If you listen to some of the all time greats like Jimi Hendrix, David Gilmour, Jimi Page and Steve Vai for example, you recognise their sound immediately. Apart from their playing style, what makes their sound so immediately recognisable is the equipment they use and in particular, what kind of guitar effects pedals or guitar effects processors they use and how they use them.

You may have listened to a particular guitar sound on one of your favourite guitarists tracks and wondered how they got that sound? You may be looking for a unique sound of your own? By reviewing as many guitar effects pedals and guitar effects processors as I can and pointing out where possible, who uses that particular pedal. Or what effects are used on a particular album or track, I hope to help you narrow down your search for the perfect guitar effects for your style.

I like many other guitarists have spent a small fortune over the years buying pedals and processors, many of which were cast aside or sold soon after I bought them as they were not really what i was looking for.

As I have mentioned elsewhere, we didn't have the opportunity to review guitar effects on the internet when I was learning to play the guitar, so the only way you could be sure if an effect was right for you was to buy it and play it for a while.

I believe my guitar effects pedal reviews will help you avoid wasting your hard earned cash on guitar effects and guitar processors that are not right for the sound you are looking for.

Why am I linking to Amazon? I have searched around the internet for the best deals on all manner of musical equipment.  Amazon seem to have better deals than most, if not all the other sites I have visited. In fact, you will find links to many sources in both the demos and the reviews. By all means check them out. However, I must make comment that anyone who says 'ring us for the best price gauranteed!' is in my opinion saying that they are quite happy to charge you on average $20 more than Amazon per item, unless you go to the trouble of calling them to negotiate, in which case they will match the price. Do they also cover the cost of your phone call or your time? I doubt it very much. I for one would much rather give my business to people that give me their best price straight off.

P.S. this page is still work in progress, as indeed is the site in general. In fact I am currently working on a new guitar effects pedal guide sub domain that i hope will be the most comprehensive guitar effects pedal guide on the internet. - COMING SOON.

Akai E2 Head Rush

Akai E2 Head Rush Delay Looper Pedal

The Akai Professional E2 Head Rush pedal brings delay, tape echo simulations and a looping recorder in one convenient pedal.

User selectable delay options allow for maximum control of output signal. Real time feedback and gain adjustment as well as echo rate. The E2 Head Rush also simulates a 4-head analog tape echo machine with control over decay and spacing between virtual tape heads to create complex multiple delays and repeats.

The signal from each virtual head appears on an individual output for multiple returns when used with an external mixing console. The Looping Recorder mode allows you to record and overdub layer after layer of sound in real-time making the E2 Head Rush an unbelievable live performance tool.

Depending upon which mode is selected, the left footswitch controls the on/off and play/stop functions while the right footswitch sets the tap delay time or recording and overdub options. The LED display indicates which effect in use and blinks in time showing the delay time selected.

The E2 Head Rush is equally as impressive whether you are running vocals, acoustic guitar, electric guitar or... well just about anything audible at all through it.

AMT SS-20 Tube Guitar Pre Amp Pedal

AMT say..... "Quickly becoming a legend known worldwide for it's AMAZING heavy metal style tube distortion. Brother to the SS-11 preamp, but the SS-20 was designed based on tigher, crunchier, more aggressive styles of guitar playing.

Ashdown Bass Chorus Plus

Ashdown bass Chorus Plus Pedal

Ashown say this pedal is a high-quality chorus, just for bass players. In addition to the standard Depth and Speed controls, the Plus part of this pedal can be switched in to provide flanging and a unique range of delay effects.

The pedal is housed in a durable metal case and features an input level control with a trademark Ashdown VU meter to allow optimum signal matching from any instrument – active or passive. The pedal also features an output level control – essential for obtaining the perfect balance between the effect and the true bypass mode.

I recommend you try this one before you buy. There are only three Harmony Central user reviews, which is not a lot to go on but they are all bad reviews.

Ashdown Bass Chorus Plus

Ashdown Bass Envelope Filter

Ashdowne bass envelope Filter pedal

It’s time to get funky with the Ashdown Envelope Filter. Capable of a wide range of effects from auto-wah through to spaced-out, auto-triggered funky tones, the sweep of the filter can be either up or down with selection of band-pass or high pass filter modes. A peak control is provided to deepen the ‘Q’ for more extreme effects and the depth of the effect is controlled by the volume of each note as it’s played, making this a truly creative and dynamic pedal.

The pedal is housed in a durable metal case and features an input level control with a trademark Ashdown VU meter to allow optimum signal matching from any instrument – active or passive.

Ashdown Bass Sub-Octave Plus

Ashdown Sub Octave Plus Bass pedal

This earth-shattering pedal generates a note one octave below the note being played, at the same volume and based on the waveform of the original signal. By blending the sub-octave note with the original signal, bass players can move from a subtle reinforcement of the sound to truckloads of bone-crushing tone. As a further Plus, distortion can be added to the sub-octave note, with the amount and tonal characteristics of the distortion both adjustable by the player.

Barber Electronics Burn Unit EQ Distortion

Barber Electronics Burn Unit Distortion Pedal

You will not find a more highly regarded collection of effects pedals than those made by Barber Electronics. They are simply fantastic pedals that add much to your tone rather than detract from it like so many effects pedals do, including some of the most reputable.

The Burn Unit EQ blurs the lines between overdrive and distortion, offering plenty of honey sweet sustain and copious harmonics while staying extremely defined. The Burn Unit is for the player looking for plenty of character from a pedal, so if it's transparancy you want look elsewhere.

The new EQ model is Barber Electronics largest update to this now legendary design. The EQ model has powerful internal controls for presence, "deep clear" bass and midrange. Players can now dial in the Burn Unit to perfectly match their amp and guitar to perfection!

The Burn Unit delivers some of the most sought after tones ever! By using unique circuitry and implementing a dynamics control which is continuously variable, the great tones of the past, present and future are available to the discriminating guitarist. Users can dial in explosive pick attack with total note definition which resolves chords as harmonically rich as 13ths and maj7's with absolute clarity! The Burn Unit can also create a fat semi-clean boost which will warm up even the coldest of amplifiers while providing a walloping punch in level !!

I have been unable to find a Demo for this pedal.
However, all of the Harmony Central user reviews rate this pedal very highly indeed.

Barber Electronics Small Fry Distortion

Barber Electronics Small Fry Distortion Pedal

Think Burn Unit in a smaller box and you won't be far from the mark. Having said that, it would also be true to say 'close, but no cigar.' It's quite difficult to review the 'Small Fry' without pointing out very similar characteristics and using identical superlatives to the review above for the 'Burn Unit.' There are subtle differences between the two pedals, but you would have to compare the two pedals by way of an audition to determine which suits you best. Suffice it to say you want one, but which one?

Need more evidence? Check out the User Reviews link. This pedal scores very highly in every category.

Barber Electronics Direct Drive Overdrive Pedal

True to life overdrive with greatly reduced compression artifacts, this unit has it all... clarity, great guitar volume knob control, solid punchy articulate bass, gain range from a little juice to fat harmonic overdrive. Give your guitar playing a vintage voice with this stellar performer.

The Direct Drive brings new clarity to the Barber Line while delivering startlingly accurate tube style overdrive, bass notes have separation like never before, chords ring with clarity, and sweet vintage voices sing from your guitar...this is the tone to die for, especially when strapped up to a 'Small Fry or 'Burns Unit' mmm sweet.

Barber Electronics Launch Pad Boost

Barber Electronics Launch Pad Boost Effect Pedal

The Barber Launch Pad Boost Effect Pedal is the ultimate high headroom clean boost pedal and it can also be used as a buffer, DI and switcher. Two outputs that represent both + and - phase. This feature allows phase correcting Blackface and Silverface Fender amps, also you will be able to combine the channels for ultra flexibility and combined harmonics of parallel preamps. Main output can be used as a standard unbalanced out or balanced out for interfacing to software guitar programs and recording equipment (balanced or unbalanced DI).

The demo on the right is a shootout between the 'Launch Pad' and a 'Zvex Super Hard On' that I will review later. The Demo, courtesy of gearmanndude was the only one I could find for the Launch Pad.

Barber Electronics Tone Press Parallel Compressor

Barber Electronics Tone Press Compressor pedal

Parallel compression, a Barber innovation that blows away having to deal with attack, ratio and release knobs of other so-called ''studio compressors''. Barber developed a one-of-a-kind and quite proprietary continuous "blend control" circuit and combined it with a discrete ''Class A'' FET mixer circuit to allow you to continuously blend the natural signal of your carefully selected guitar with a ''phase-corrected'' classic compression circuit. The result? What guitar players have always wanted - unaltered attack and supernatural sustain and resonance, no studio engineering degree required.

Barber Electronics Tone Pump EQ

Barber Electronics Tone Pump EQ Pedal

Barber Electronics say... "We are proud to introduce a powerful update to our now legendary Tone Pump!." "The Tone Pump has a new tone control design that allows for an even clearer and more dynamic sound." "The ''EQ'' update adds controls for presence and midrange... With the well thought out new "EQ", you can sculpt a vast ''tonescape'', from flat mids to extra articulated silky highs and a new deeper clearer bass and all points between." "The ''pump'' control for the red channel is now push/pull to go between asymmetric and symmetrical clipping. All this adds up to an exciting new Tone Pump that veteran and new users alike will love!"

"The Tone Pump EQ has a beautiful transparent presentation which allows it to take on the characteristics of your guitar and amp without changing their tonal balance." "The Tone Pump's gain structure allows for plenty of flexibility by using two foot switches and separate volume and sustain (pump) controls for each channel." "The new push/pull symmetry adds yet another dimension to the Tone Pump's legacy." "Classic sounds for the tone connoisseur!"

BBE Soul Vibe - Rotary Speaker Emulator

BBE Soul Vibe Pedal

The Soul Vibe is a vintage vibe/rotary speaker simulator known for its chewy phase-like textures made popular in the late ‘60s and ‘70s by such players as Jimi Hendrix, David Gilmour and Robin Trower who all relied heavily on the legendary Univibe for their own unique version of the distinctive rotary speaker sound.

BBE Opto Stomp - Optical Compressor

BBE Opto Stomp Compressor Pedal

The Opto Stomp is a transparent optical compressor that provides a wide range of soft-knee compression effects, reminiscent of the best vintage compressors made in the ‘60s.

Players loved the optical compressor in the highly acclaimed BBE B-Max bass preamp, so much so that BBE decided to offer the same compressor circuit in a stand-alone foot pedal. Opto Stomp soft-knee design offers transparent control of dynamics and very musical compression reminiscent of the classic designs of the best vintage optical-element compressors of the 50’s and 60’s. Other features include switchable -15dB pad, LED compression indicator, non-slip rubber bottom, easy-access 9v battery compartment and included external power supply.

A great transparent compressor for Guitar or Bass. The video demo on the right is for bass and is in German. I have no idea what the guy is saying but it's a very good demo that highlights the tonal qualities of the pedal, which is why I have linked to it.

Boss GE-7 Graphic Equaliser

Guitar Effects pedal review - Boss GE-7 Graphic Equalizer  

This little gem can make a huge difference to your overal sound. Use it to tweak out the mids for solos or reduce the mid and bring out the high ends and bass for tangy wangy, chaka, chaka rhythms.

Good for shaping tone and controlling feedback and fuzz etc. It can also be very noisy and a real tone sucker if misused.

Many pro guitarists have more than one GE-7 on their board and set one up for solos, another for rhythm etc.

Boss BD-2 Blues Driver

Guitar Effects Pedal Review - Boss Blues Driver  

Classic, bluesy, overdriven, vintage valve amp sounds in abundance, with surprisingly subtle tonal variation for what is essentially a distortion pedal.

The BD-2 can deliver a punchy, crunchy. chunky rhythm sound when desired and can also be very useful in finding that smooth, soulful classic blues solo sound most rock guitarists hanker for..

I think this pedal is well worth buying and hanging on to, as it will one day itself, be a much sought after vintage classic

Boss DS-1 Distortion

Boss Ds-1 Distortion Pedal

One of the most popular distortions ever made and used by pros everywhere since they first became popular in the late 70's

The DS-1 has been famously used in songs such as Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" where it was the main distortion used by Kurt Cobain on the Nevermind album. The DS-1 has also been used by guitarists such as Steve Rothery of Marillion, Wata of Boris, Joe Satriani, Mike Stern, Dave Navarro of Jane's Addiction, John Petrucci of Dream Theater, Robin Jones, Bill Langill of Foreign Policy, and Steve Vai. In fact, the list is endless. I used one myself when I was a youth and I guess that pedal would be a collectable classic now if it has survived the rigours of the road?

Boss DD-20 Giga Delay

Guitar Effects Pedal Reviews - Boss GD-20 Giga Delay
 

I'll be honest. This one has me scratching my head.

The other guitarist in my last band had one of these and it is without doubt a highly versatile, warm, lush sounding delay pedal. The DD20 has a host of features including reverse delay plus 10 other modes and a 20 second or so, looper.

The pedal has a great tonal range controlled by the appropriate knob and has Mono or Stereo output. Being digital it has a memory (allbeit a short one) and can store 4 presets. It is a twin pedal, so you turn it on and off with one pedal and change pre-sets or tap a tempo with the other one.

It sounds great, it is well built and It isn't too expensive. It has a memory for you to store 4 pre-sets and more features than other delay pedals. So what's the problem?

Exactly that. With so many knobs and switches to mess around with. My concern is that you may spend more time on your knees pratting around with it, than stood on your feet actually playing your guitar.

Would I buy one? Don't be daft, of course I would. It gives a whole new meaning to the phrase, "let's do the twist" and besides, I'm a guitarist and we like pratting around with stuff that makes lottsa cool noises lol.

Budda BudWah - Wah Wah Pedal

The Budwah is one of the most sought-after wah-wah pedals ever made, designed with tightly focused tone sweep and an outstanding vocal-like quality. At bass settings (heel rocked back), the Budwah tone is thick and honky without losing clarity of the note. When fully depressed, the highs roll off to a frequency that isn't piercing like many other wahs.

The BudWah uses a custom inductor voiced to produce the midrange honk of vintage wahs without the top-end harshness. At bass settings, the Budda Budwah's tone is thick and honky without losing note clarity. When accentuating the highs, a carefully selected roll-off frequency ensures the BudWah isn't piercing like many other wahs.

The Budda Budwah's tight and focused tone sweep produces an outstanding vocal-like quality.

Digitech Tone Driver Overdrive Pedal

Why settle for one overdrive sound when you can have three overdrive pedals built into one stomp box! Each overdrive pedal utilizes DigiTech’s exclusive multi-distortion technology which gives you a near endless supply of overdrive types compared to single overdrive pedals by other companies.

DigiTech have incorporated a full spectrum of overdrives allowing you to go from an edgy mid boost overdrive, to a smooth warm overdrive, all the way to a classic overdrive sound with extra gain for when you need it.

The three distortion pedals include the 'Metal Master' for those who lean strongly towards head-banging for a living, the 'Hot Rod' which delivers powerful, but smooth rock distortion, and the 'Tone Driver' for guitarists who live for overdrive crunch. Each distortion stompbox features a huge range of different distortion types that can be morphed into different combinations as you rotate Digitech's exclusive Distortion Morph knob. This gives you a near unlimited supply of combinations. Now, you are no longer stuck with only one distortion type in a pedal.

Electro-Harmonix Big Muff Pi with Tone Wicker

Guitar Effects Pedal Review - Electro Harmonix Big Muff with Tone Wicker

Reality check. Nothing sounds quite like a vintage Triangle or Ram's Head Big Muff. There is no getting away from the fact that they sound fatter, richer and have more bite than the modern versions and any so called clones.

There are clones out there that claim to sound similar, but Dave Gilmour still uses the originals in preference to his custom built Pete Cornish Muff clone, which does get the occasional run out, but will cost you an arm and a leg to buy.

This latest reincarnation of the original Big Muff Pi by Electro Harmonix does sound very close to the vintage models however and is selling very well.

The wicker switch when on, effectively bypasses the tone filter to give a 'Broadband Big Muff Slam' to use their own words. When switched off, you have the standard Big Muff control.

All Muffs do sound a little harsh and fizzy in isolation. The trick, if you want to recreate that sumptuous Gilmour tone, is to strap it up to a BK Chandler Tube Driver and use some form of eq like a Boss GE-7.

Fromel Electronics Seraph Analog Stereo Chorus

Guitar Effects Pedal Review - Fromel Electronics Seraph  

The Seraph - True stereo analog dimensional chorus. The most Lush sounding chorus available. So Fromel Electronics claim.

Various pre-set modes for rate and depth to adjust the 3D spatial effect. The original that the Seraph was modeled after only had four presets, the Seraph has the original four modes but switches can be combined for a total of 8 modes and richer textures.

Most stereo chorus effects just send the dry signal to one channel, the Seraph has two delay lines making it true stereo.

The pedal has that vintage feel and reminds me a lot of the combination of a vintage Boss ce-2 (the proper one - i.e. Japan, black label, silver screw, offset 2) and a hint of vintage Electric Mistress.

Sorry, there are no Harmony Central user reviews for this pedal. I will try to get my hands on one to give you a full report.

Retro Sonic Stereo Chorus Ensemble - The Holy Grail of Anolog Chorus

Retro Sonic Stereo Chrus Ensemble  

The Retro Sonic Stereo Chorus Ensemble is a faithful reproduction of the 1976 Boss CE-1. This holy grail of chorus pedals is capable of a wide variety of rich modulation from sparkling Andy Summers tones to warbling Vibratone sounds.

Retrosonic uses the original analog BBD chip to achieve the lush, warm, tones that only a Chorus Ensemble is capable of. The selectable mode switch changes from Chorus to Vibrato, allowing separate presets to be maintained for each effect. Choose two separate rates to achieve a Leslie rotating speaker effect! An LED flashes along with the rate of the effect, whichever mode you are in.

Stereo outputs allow for a wide and mesmerizing effect with a two amplifier setup. If you've never heard a true analog stereo chorus pedal, this is your ticket in. As with all Retro Sonic pedals, it features the highest quality components and true bypass for maintaining your guitar's signal. Current models are now powered by 9VDC, making it more compatible with your pedalboard.

Retro Sonic Analog Delay

 

The Retro-Sonic Analog Delay is based heavily on the circuit from the original Boss DM-2 Delay pedal.

Using this classic design as a jumping-off point the pedal scientists at Retro Sonic kicked things up a notch and added their own clever variations on the circuit. They also cleaned up the signal path, giving the Analog Delay totally noise and hiss-free operation.

Controls include Delay Time, Echo Repeats, and Echo Level knobs. There is also a tonal control knob that functions as a high frequency roll-off filter. This allows you to change the character of your repeats, varying the warmth or relative brightness of the delayed signal.

The Retro-Sonic Phaser is based on the classic MXR Phase 90 Script logo. This is the same vintage 4 stage phase circuit with a few new additions to make it a more versatile pedal.

Instead of just handling the speed of the effect, the Retrosonic version includes Rate, a Depth control which allows you to dial in the intensity of the effect, and a level control for matching unity gain or adding some signal boost. Retro-Sonic matches a set of FETs for the best possible phasing experience and uses the highest quality components. Plus of course, True Bypass is standard as well as a heavy duty enclosure.

Retro Sonic Compressor

Retro Sonic Compressor Pedal

The Retro-Sonic Compressor is an accurate reproduction of the famous gray Ross Compressor known for is smooth compression and attack response. The Ross design is updated with true bypass switching and the finest components, providing clean, smooth compression with low noise and incredible transparency.

An attack control allows you access to a full range of settings from Fast to slow. You will notice note-to-note levels that are smoother and more consistent, chords and picking that is tighter and more focused, and when used with an overdriven amp, sustain that will last and last! Notably, you will find minimal coloration to your guitar signal and less of the note-attack alterations so common with other compressors.

Retro Sonic Overdrive Pedal

If you're looking for a faithful reproduction of the original Tube Screamer, then look no further than the Eight-O-Eight from Retro-Sonic. This pedal is built from the ground up, not a modded version of somebody else's pedal.

The Eight O Eight features the same JRC4558D op-amp as the original TS-808, which is known for a tube like overdrive while retaining your guitar's natural tone. In fact, the chip is socketed so you can experiment with different op amps as well.

This pedal will get those classic mid bumped SRV tones or singing rock leads without adding compression. You can also use it as a clean boost for sparkling transparent sounds. Inside the pedal, you can adjust the amount of low end with a trimpot, going from vintage Tubescreamer to a fatter, more modern sound of your own.

All of Retro Sonic pedals feature true bypass as well as the highest quality caps and metal film resistors. Housed in a sturdy die cast metal casing, the Eight-O-Eight will stand the test of time.

Retro Sonic Pre Amp Pedal

The Retro-Sonic Preamp is a reproduction of the coveted FA-1 FET preamp circuit. Basically it is a high quality clean boost with modern tone shaping options and the all important true bypass to eliminate tone suck.

The Retro-Sonic Preamp uses the famous circuit as a starting point, but that is where the similarities end. Control wise, it features independent Bass and Treble controls as well as a bass Cut switch that provides -6db of low cut.

Built with only the best parts like att Retro Sonic products, upon opening this pedal you will see metal film resistors, film capacitors and employs a double sided circuit board for silent operation. Also inside, you will see DIP switches that will turn this clean boost into a dirty boost or mellow overdrive.

If a clean boost is what you seek, the Retro-Sonic Preamp should be on your short list. Retro-Sonic Preamp features: True Bypass Heavy Duty Footswitch On/Off LED Internal DIP Switched External Low Cut Switch 30db Boost Retro-Sonic Preamp includes: 9 Volt Battery 2 Year Limited Warranty

Retro Sonic Distortion

Retro Sonic Distortion Pedal

The Retro-Sonic Distortion is the latest addition to Retro Sonic's vintage-inspired boutique effect pedal line.

The DISTORTION pedal is based on a LM308 op-amp design, and features true bypass with Distortion, Tone and Level controls. Together, these provide a wide range of tonal possibilities, from subtly distorted blues tones through to classic rock and metal.

As added flexibility, Retro-Sonic has incorporated two internal trim pots into the Distortion Pedal to allow adjustment to the frequency response of the gain structure. This gives DISTORTION users the option to tailor the overall response of the pedal to taste, by reducing or increasing the mix of high or low end content. More tonal flexibility can be explored through multiple clipping options via a 3 position mini toggle switch selects symmetrical-diode, asymmetrical-diode, or LED clipping.

The Retro-Sonic DISTORTION is a professional quality effect pedal that recaptures the much sought-after vintage vibe. It is a truly versatile and musical pedal design that responds to touch, producing a big, natural, harmonically rich tone that works with any guitar-pedal-amp configuration.

The DISTORTION uses a standard negative tip 9v adaptor or battery. The highest quality components, handmade details and stringent testing, set the Retro-Sonic line above other boutique effects.

T-Rex Replica Delay

Guitar Effects Pedal Review - T-Rex Replica Delay  

This Danish made pedal has been around for a while now and if anything, is growing in popularity. The Replica produces up to 2,000 ms of studio quality digital delay at an astonishing 200kHz sampling rate. Despite being digital, the Replica has a fat, warm delay, unlike the Boss DD3 and many other digital delay units that sound quite thin and bright by comparison.

The pedal has an array of controls that do all the usual stuff, plus a subdivision knob that generates quarter note triplets of the selected delay time. If you prefer the muddier analog tape machine echo, hit the brown switch (high-cut filter) and away you go. When the brown circuit is not selected, the delays remain clear and undistorted at any delay time.

Being the worthy winner of the Guitar Players Magazine editors pick award is a fair credential in itself, but being on Dave Gilmour's pedal board is a better one. Simply one of the best delays around in any form, rack or floor mounted, but a little expensive for a pedal. Where did I hide my piggy bank?
