Effect Pedals

Effect pedals manipulate the tone of the guitar to create various effects. The raw guitar signal goes into the input, the effect pedal alters the signal depending on the effect, and the changed signal then outputs to the amplifier.

Digital Delay

The delay pedal records and loops back the input at a given repeating time and decay level. Guitarists famous for using a delay pedal include: The Edge, Josh Homme, Tom Morello, Adam Jones, and Steven Wilson.

Tremolo Pedal

The tremolo pedal controls the output level by sweeping across a saw wave or a square wave. The saw wave fades volume in and out at a given rate and depth, while the square wave varies between on and off at a given rate, creating a pusling effect. Guitarists famous for using a tremolo pedal include: Trent Reznor, Steven Wilson, and Tom Morello.

Wah Pedal

A wah pedal is a type of guitar effect that alters the tone of the signal to create a distinctive effect intended to mimic the human voice. The pedal sweeps the peak response of a filter up and down in frequency to create the sound. Guitarists famous for using this effect extensively include: Jimmy Page, Tom Morello, Adam Jones, Eric Clapton, Frank Zappa, and Josh Homme.

Whammy Pedal

The DigiTech Whammy is a pitch-shifter effect that gives musicians the ability to shift the pitch of their electric guitar up or down in real time by rocking the pedal up and down with their foot. Guitarists famous for using the whammy pedal include: Tom Morello, Jack White, and The Edge.
