Chorus pedals mimic the effect choirs and string orchestras produce naturally by mixing sounds with slight differences in timbre and pitch.

A phaser or “phase shifter” creates a slight rippling effect – amplifying some aspects of the tone while diminishing others – by splitting an audio signal in two and altering the phase of one portion.

A flanger creates a “jet plane” or “spaceship” sound, simulating a studio effect produced by recording a track on two synchronized tapes and periodically slowing one tape by pressing the edge of its reel (the “flange”).

A tremolo effect produces a slight, rapid variation in the volume of a note or chord.

Vibrato effects produce slight, rapid variations in pitch, mimicking the fractional semitone variations produced naturally by opera singers and violinists when prolonging a single note.

Wah is a type of guitar effects pedal that alters the tone of the signal to create a distinctive effect, mimicking the human voice. The pedal sweeps the peak response of a filter up and down in frequency to create the sound (spectral glide), also known as “the wah effect.”

Delay / Echo
Delay/Echo units produce an echo effect by adding a duplicate instrument-to-amplifier electrical signal to the original signal at a slight time-delay.

Reverb units simulate sounds produced in an echo chamber by creating a large number of echoes that gradually fade or “decay”.

Overdrive / Distortion
Over/Dist effects are sometimes called “gain” effects. Distortion effects create “warm”, “gritty” and “fuzzy” sounds by “clipping” an instrument’s audio signal, which distorts the shape of its wave form and adds overtones.

Noise gate
Noise gates eliminate “hum”, “hiss” and “static” by greatly diminishing the volume of sounds that fall below a set threshold.

Acoustic Simulator
Acoustic Simulators enable electric guitars to mimic the sound of acoustic guitar.

    I love your web site!

    If you play the guitar and you don’t own a reasonable quality acoustic instrument, half of your life is missing.

    And I’m not talking about that dusty, unplayable GSO (guitar- shaped
    object) that you can’t quite bear to throw away yet.
    That piece of junk is the stringed equivalent of holey shoes with nails poking through the soles:
    you’re never going to wear them as long
    as you have something more comfortable around.

    A straw poll of non-enlightened Guitarist staff, friends and alumni
    confirms the situation. For many, a ‘decent’ acoustic seems to be at best a fourth or fifth purchase, and in some cases,
    neverth. You have your main electric guitar, main amp, then second
    electric guitar… third… fourth? Just when do you stump up for a good steel-string flat top?

    After 2 cheap electrics I spent $2200 on a used custom made OM flat top acoustic. Sika top, maple back and sides with ladder bracing. Bone nut and saddle, Grover tuners yadayada. It became my main axe very quickly as I delved deeply into fingerpickin’ country blues from Lightnin Hopkins to Mississippi John Hurt to Big Bill Broonzy to Scrapper Blackwell etc etc. Now after well aquainting myself with the “heart and soul” of the blues I’m ready to step up and get myself a quality electric for a return to the “dark side”.
