More than ever before, guitar players are using effects pedals to optimize their tone, or extend the range of sounds available in their playing. It is not uncommon to see guitarists with pedalboards holding 10 or more pedals. The Golden Age of effects may be here, or it may be yet to some, but no matter which, one thing is sure, there are plenty of options existing and affordable for any musician.

Guitar Effects Explained is the book for anyone interested in the technology of echo, reverb, flangers, phasers, distortion and much more.


Distortion Pedals Explained is also available on Amazon and is the book for guitarists using distortion pedals who are curious to find out what’s going on inside those colorful boxes on the floor. Distortion Effects Explained digs deep into what makes a fuzz, overdrive, octave or amp-in-a-box pedal.


Guitar FX Mods: Big Muff Pi is an in-depth look at the circuit inside one of the classic effects pedals of all time. Much of the testing and data included in this book has never been available on the web or in the previous ebooks on the pedal. New test results confirm that some of the long-held beliefs and secrets behind the operation of the circuit may be less influential than previously thought.

Guitar FX Mods: Pro Co Rat is an indepth look at the circuit inside one of the great distortion boxes of the last 30 years. New text and photos have been added to this Kindle ebook.

Guitar FX Mods: Big Muff Pi is available on Amazon.

Factoid: The image of the lacquered tweed fabric on these book covers is a scan of the back panel from my homemade 5E3 Deluxe amp. 🙂
