Guitar effects are awesome. As everyone knows, though, there is an absurd number of guitar effects out there. With the great number of different guitarists here, I want to hear from a bunch of different people what their favorite effects are. I know that this is vague, and that there are a great number of different categories and types of effects out there, but I just want to hear everyone's opinion, from pedal effects to rack modules to multi-effects boards. It might help to do something along the lines of "envelope filter - Doctor Q" (that's one of my favorites, just because it sounds funky and you can buy one for $40) to clarify things.


But yeah, there are so many people here, I'd love to get a bunch of opinions on effects under one topic.

Well, if we consider Delay an effect - than that is my favorite one smile.gif Also i love Chorus for clean playing and harmonizer for some crazy robot-sounding licks smile.gif

I like the more subtle effects.. like just a tiny bit of delay on a lead sound. A little goes a long way.
Never bothered much with getting pedals or multifx'es in the past, but i recently got a gt-8.. so i suspect i will start experimenting a bit smile.gif

Oh, forgot to mention:
In my rack i've got a Korg SDD-1200 (which is older than time itself), it's supposed to be a delay unit.. but what it does best is give some really unusual siren-sort of sounds. Still havent found any real usage for it, but it's fun to fool around with smile.gif

hehe, it reminds me a weird situation when a bass player said me that distortion is only an effect... I disagreed but I really didn't know what say, so if we consider distortion an effect it's allways the best one tongue.gif
But now seriously, I like delays for solos but I like also a good compresor/limiter or some reverb smile.gif

I've always wanted a talkbox but never felt like laying down the cash for one. Maybe I'll have to treat myself...

Wah is definitely always something awesome!

+1 on the vocoder.

I don't have any outboard effects yet. My amp has some of the basics built in...flange, phase, chorus, delay and reverb, etc. I pretty much keep them turned off.

I find that the more options I have to fiddle around with sounds, the more time I spend fiddling with them and less time practicing the guitar.

I'm a fan of messed up over distorted crap. I can't help it. Something like Cobain's running a SansAmp into a DS-1 into the amp.
