NPR did a really fun piece on the history of effects pedals as part of their ‘Voices Within the Music’ program. Even though it’s only a little over 5 minutes long, they manage to cram in a start to finish article, hitting on some great highlights along the way including a few myths that may or may not be true. The article focuses mainly on the comments of pedal builder Mike Piera of Analog Man and guitarist Nels Cline, which I’m sure our readers will have varying opinions about. Give it a listen – it’s worth the time.
And, don’t forget! We have a pedal giveaway going on right now. Win a Heptode Virtuoso as easy as 1, 2, 3. Sign up to be a member of Pedal Finder and review the pedals on your board. Each pedal review becomes an entry. More on that here.
