The updated 2020 version of 'The Joy of FX' is available now.


Are you the type of player who’s satisfied with a simple wah-wah, drive and tuner (okay, and maybe tremolo and a reverb, too…)? Or is your ISS-sized pedalboard in danger of taking up most of the stage? 

Regardless of your pedal preferences, it surely won’t have escaped your attention that in recent years, there’s been a revolution going on in guitar-effects to rival those in the disparate but parallel worlds of craft beer and modular synthesis.


The world’s boutique makers have been warming up their soldering

irons and putting in the late nights to deliver us a truly unprecedented

choice of innovative stompboxes. Nowadays, if you can imagine a

guitar effect, you can bet someone, somewhere will be working hard

to make it a stompable reality – read our Builder Profiles to find out

what some of these pioneering pedalmakers have in store.


With such an overwhelming number of pedals on offer, which

should you buy next? Our monster Top 50 Effects In The World Today

feature ranges from spectacular single-function vintage-style units all

the way through to the very latest ultra-creative guitar-synth hybrids.
