Guitar Effect Guide

With a Guitar Effect the sound of a Electric guitarbe specifically and individually changed.
Depending on the effect, the change in the sound is directly above the amplifierthe guitar or a special effect device possible. Effects for electric guitars are available in two different versions. So-called single effects units allow the addition of a special effect. Multi-effect devices are more complex devices that allow you to select and activate multiple effects.

Distortion of the guitar sound

The distortion is probably the oldest way to change the sound of an electric guitar. In many cases, the possibility of distortion is already integrated in the amplifier pre-stages, and no separate effect device must be purchased. Some guitar ampare equipped with an appropriate channel, which makes it possible to overdrive the sound of the electric guitar and thereby distort. The controls on the amplifier are usually called „Gain“ or „Drive“.

If the amplifier does not offer the possibility of direct distortion, this effect can be combined with a effects pedal, the so-called distortion pedal. The distortion pedal is connected between guitar and amplifier. One cable connects the guitar to the pedal, another cable leads from the pedal to the preamp of the guitar amplifier and is plugged into the input jack of the amplifier instead of the guitar. Distortion, like the wah-wah effect, is one of the effects that alter the basic sound characteristics of the guitar.

Wah-wah, boosters and modulation effects

Wah-wah pedals, like the distortion pedals, are among the most important effects. The name Wah-Wah comes from the very own and very special sound that can be generated with these pedals. Since the 1960s, distortion pedals are used. The pedals have a simple tilting mechanism that controls the intensity of the effect. In part, wah-wah pedals are additionally equipped with a distortion, which allows a distortion effect.

The NUX MG-20 is a multi-function modeling computer for Ammoon electric guitars that can generate 60 effects. In addition, the device has 72 programmed drum loops that can be accessed by pedal pressure.

Another technique is the so-called booster. With a booster, the signal or the sound is amplified by the pickup of the electric guitar and the volume increased before the sound is routed to the amplifier. Boosters are also often combined with distortion so that a booster pedal can be used instead of a distortion pedal.

Modulation effects offer the most diverse guitar effects. The effects are usually looped in between the pre- and the final stage of the amplifier. Modulation is the down or conversion of the notes of an electric guitar called. In this case, the original sound is very often decomposed into two sub-signals, of which a sub-signal is modified before the two sub-signals are subsequently combined again and delivered via the amplifier. The merging of the two sub-signals is also usually a little time-delayed. Probably the most well-known modulation effects are „Chorus“, „Phaser“ and „Flanger“. They have in common that the original signal is split into two sub-signals.

The chorus effect provides a wider and fuller sound of the guitar tones. The flanger effect is very similar to the chorus effect. The modulated signal is added to the unmodified signal in a constantly varying form, while the chorus effect always remains the same. The phaser effect is a so-called floating effect, often referred to as spherical sound. With the flanger effect, the modulated signals are recombined with a certain phase shift.
