Greetings Ladies and Gents, I was just wondering if this is the right place on this fine forum to post regarding effect pedals? It seems to make the most sense. I figured I should ask in order not to rustle any feathers. Would appreciate any response.

JAC,

You are in good company.
A lot of us love to dabble in effects on these boards.

I myself tend to use them for very specific tones and sounds on very specific songs.
We are mainly a cover band, and so it is important to get just the right sound if you are playing a party or a class reunion, and you want the band (and your guitar work more importantly) to sound just like the LP or CD that the audience loves and remembers.

Examples:
Talk Box, Les Paul - Joe Walsh's Rocky Mountain Way
Talk Box, Telecaster - Weezer's Beverly Hills.
Boost, Ibanez Jet King JTK40 - CCR's Proud Mary, or Black Crow's Hard To Handle.
Fuzz, Distortion, Jay Turser JT 200 Pro guitar - Led Zeppelin's Kashmir, Beastie Boys' Fight For Your Right to Party, or ELO's Do Ya.
Clean amp gain up, hollow-body Ibanez on neck pickup - Collective Soul's Shine.
Phase shifter, Martin 12-string acoustic - ELO's One Summer Dream.

I know it sounds crazy, all this attention to sonic detail.
But when you are playing to rabid music fans, and you can bring them the exact tones that fit their memories of beloved song, MAN OH MAN is it fun!


And it goes without saying, using effects pedals for creating your own original songs is an awesome thing.
You can write tons of great songs on any old acoustic, for sure.
And it's a lot like painting with just 6 colors of paint on your palette.

But when you open up your arsenal of guitars and effects, it's like have hundreds of colors of paints on your palette.
:)

I agree. Having a broad sonic effects range to work with is very important. If you can come up with exact or as close as possible is a good thing.

JAC,

Here is my pedal board, such as it is.

Top left is my wireless, the Line 6 G30. (I hate tripping over a guitar cable.)

Below that is the Donner Pearl Tremor analog phase shifter.
Next is the Steel Wool, a boost pedal made locally by a good friend and amp-builder, Danny.
To the right of that is the 3906 Fuzz, my distortion pedal, also hand-made by a local pedal and effects wizard, Patrick Gentile.
Then of course is the MXR Talk Box, a really fun effect.

I like your pedal board. I also am very happy with the G30 I use. That MXR talkbox is a very cool effect as well. Nice setup you have there.
