Coming soon – I am talking to various potential partners (only the best will do !)

Love them or hate them Guitar effects offer an amazing extension to the guitar soundscape. Sometimes all you need for inspiration is just a little extra sonic juice – a bit of sonic seasoning in the mix.


Like with guitars I’ve had my fair share of effects over the years. Starting with the humble distortion pedal – an Ibanez Tubescreamer and the inevitable delay – DD5 I think, I’ve worked my way through quite a few multi fx boards over the years and eventually come back to just a few pedals to suit my own style of playing.

Chorus, delay and compressor with the occasional wah-wah moment are the ones for me these days. Distortion comes from the Marshall tubes aided and abetted by a Line6 compressor.

I use a lot more effects for DI recording but for live stuff I keep it fairly simple (like me)
