Bonehead's Guide to Effectsby Dominic Hilton
Like the special effects used in Speilberg movies, guitar effects can be equally as dramatic and baffling. The Bonehead's Guide to Effects gets right to the point with an illustrated description of every type of guitar effect, including their sound, application and the various formats available. From a simple "stompbox" to high-powered rack systems, all are clearly explained in terms of how they function and how they can be used to enhance your playing. The text includes a detailed buyer's guide to assembling your ideal effects system, alongside useful safety and maintenance tips. There is also vital info on "chaining" effects and recipes for basic tones and outrageous sounds. The bizarre technology of guitar effects uses everything from feet to floppy discs and this guide provides the necessary knowledge to choose and apply these weird devices according to your style and budget. If you feel the urge to wah, flange, uni-vibe or pitchshift, then this is the book to get you effected.
