  1. Four Fantastic Boost Guitar Effects Pedals You Need To Check Out

    Four Fantastic Boost Guitar Effects Pedals You Need To Check Out
      While they often get mixed up or even lumped into one hybrid stompbox, a true boost pedal is different from an overdrive. A true, clean boost pedal is meant to give your signal an extra boost of power while keeping the natural tone uncolored, pretty much like an expanded volume knob. And though many players use boost pedals in order to send their amp into overdrive, it is up to the amp and not the booster to craft your tone. But that's not to say we don't appreciate when manufacturers add a few extras, as long as they don't get in the way of the pedal's true job! With that in mind, we'd like to share with you four fantastic boost pedals that get the job done and then some! Continue reading →
  2. Seymour Duncan 805 Overdrive Effects Pedal Review

    Seymour Duncan 805 Overdrive Effects Pedal Review
      While Seymour Duncan will always be primarily known for their huge catalog of pickups, they have quietly amassed an impressive lineup of guitar effects pedals in recent years. From the Catalina Chorus to the Dirty Deed Distortion, and a whole lot more in between, Duncan's effects display the same sensibility as their pickups -- great quality and construction with a unique twist thrown in from time to time. Today, we're taking the 805 Overdrive for a spin, an OD pedal inspired by the legendary Ibanez TS808 and TS9 Tube Screamer. Does the 805 Overdrive live up to the legacy of the Tube Screamer (or the Ducan name, for that matter)? Read on to find out.   Continue reading →
  3. Vertex Boost Guitar Effects Pedal Review

    Vertex Boost Guitar Effects Pedal Review
    One of the more popular types of pedals out there is the booster, designed to increase your guitar signal before it reaches the amplifier. They can come in several different varieties, such as a mid-boost, used to color specific parts of your frequency while boosting the entire signal. They also may come in a “linear” or “clean” flavor, in which case they are intended to leave your guitar’s frequency range (and therefore its tone) unchanged as much as possible as it passes through, with only the signal level being increased. Which brings us to the Vertex, a clean boost that adds buffer and volume pedal functionality. While there are several boosters that claim to increase your tone without coloring it, not all of them completely deliver. How does the Vertex Boost fare?   Continue reading →
  4. Budda Budwah Wah Effects Pedal Review

    Budda Budwah Wah Effects Pedal Review
    [caption id="" align="alignright" width="340"] Budda Budwah @ $169.00[/caption] If you are one of those musicians who have yet to experience a Budda pedal – it’s cool, you’re not alone. Although the company’s name and reputation has certainly grown over their 15 years in the business, they remain better known for their boutique amplifiers (which is how they got their start) than their pedals which to this day tend to remain rather elusive. In fact, its first foray into the pedal business just happens to be the Budwah – a highly touted wah-wah pedal that owes its immaculate tone to the company’s backbone in amplifier construction, resulting in a product that has been tailored to work with an amp’s own response rather than for the pedal’s own performance. So, in a world filled with plenty of big name wah pedals from some of the best manufacturers in the business – from Dunlop’s classic Crybaby to the fan favorite Morley Bad Horsie – does the Budwah have enough to deserve your hard earned cash and a spot on that pedal board?   Continue reading →
