Ever been overwhelmed by the nearly endless variety of guitar effects pedals out there? Every wondered about the difference between a phaser, a flanger, a chorus, a delay and an octave divider? You'll find answers here to every question you may have ever about what a certain pedal sounds like, how they work, and which ones are the best.

The author has assembled a thoroughly entertaining and highly informative handbook that details virtually every pedal ever manufactured. The book begins with amplifier-driven guitar effects such as overdrive, reverb, vibrato and tremolo and runs through recent innovations by companies like Voodoo Lab, Mesa/Boogie, and even the wonderful Hot Box and Vibro Box from Matchless.

There are interviews with the men who created these effects, everyone from Electro-Harmonix founder Mike Matthews to Pete Cornish and Roger Mayer (who created Jimi Hendrix's first fuzz). There are photographs of all the pedals and even special instructions on how to maximize the sounds coming from these stomp boxes.

Everything you want to know about guitar effects pedals is here. After reading this, you'll want to run out and buy all the pedals featured on these pages.

Originally published on Curled Up With A Good Book at Steven Rosen, 2014
