EarthQuaker Devices Afterneath Otherwordly Reverberation Pedal

Rather than imitating a plate or spring, the EarthQuaker Afterneath Otherworldly uses a sequence of short delays that cascade into each other in order to produce the reflections that are typically produced by reverb units.

Zoom G1Xon: One of the Best Multi-Effects Sound Pedals

Some guitarists of a certain vintage will remember a multi-effects pedal from the days of yore, called a Zoom GFX707. It was cheap as anything, but for a lot of us, it was our first experience running our guitars through something before it hit the amp. We’ve moved onto higher-end gear, but there’s still a […]

TC-Helicon Play Acoustic: Another top Multi-Effects Pedal to Love

While most multi-effects units are very much aimed at electric guitar players, some of the features in them would be a waste of time for a guitarist more focused on acoustic playing.

Hotone Xtomp: A Sound Effects Pedal We Love

Hotone Xtomp: A Sound Effects Pedal We Love

I’m a fan of Hotone pedals and have a couple of their stompboxes permanently attached to my pedalboard. They’re tiny, saving a bunch of room on my board, and are very well constructed – what’s not to love.
