Guitarists encouraged to try different effects pedal set-ups

Electric guitar players have been encouraged to experiment with different set-ups when using effects pedals on stage.

According to Dave Hunter of Gibson, many delay and chorus pedals are equipped with stereo outputs that can enable the sound to be spread across different speakers.

However, he said complications can arise if guitarists do not set up the stereo pedal last in an effects chain.

In addition, Mr Hunter stated that other problems can be created if a player wants to use two stereo pedals to create a more complex stereo delay.

He advised guitarists to consider what aspect of their sound is most important to them if they want to use a long effects chain and to devise a set-up accordingly.

"Try all the alternatives, and go with whatever feels like the least obtrusive compromise," Mr Hunter added.

This comes shortly after Gibson described using effects pedals as a good way of adding texture, dynamics, space and motion to a person's guitar sound.
