Effects Reviews: In depth reviews of guitar effects units
Check out these cool effects pedals in review format on tonymckenzie.com
Sounding great is not just down to plugging in a guitar and 'hoping' that it will all work out fine. Professional guitarists have near enough always used effects units or effects pedals in one way or another to enhance their sound. Even back to someone like Hank Marvin. Lord knows I'm not that much of a fan, but recently watched their 'last concert' of 2004 and in there Hank displayed his great tunes. But what was most interesting was how the effects in his music enhanced the sound incredibly well. Clearly thought out and well executed music. But what about ordinary guitar players like you and me? well, if you believed all the croc of **** that some manufacturers throw at us in 'paid reviews' or 'artist' attached hype then everything is good right? Unfortunately not. Some effects processors simply don't do what they promise, some sound 'digital' and 'cold' to hear while other gear can sound incredibly good when you use it right.
And that's the point! if you have a great effects unit or pedal setup, then invest some time and you will sound great. Just plug in and go? some gear will let you do that and sound great, the 'Line6 Helix' is one of them and make no mistake, that pedal takes music forward in a big way... goodbye fractal at last. Now you can have better for half their price and backed up by Yamaha! Innovation indeed. But here I show you some of the effects and switching I have used or still do so pay attention now! I'm joking of course... just browse to whatever you want and hopefully my experience will help you through the tricky world of effects pedals, switching units, midi controllers, guitar synthesizers and more.
Below is a selection of effects but please be aware that this is an on going sector that will be continuously updated... if there is no link from the picture right now, it will appear when I have the review complete. This website is massive and it takes time to develop between YouTube reviews too. Any images that don't go to a page are for reviews currently being written.
