Do effect pedals make a difference?
I personally love effects. Although I have scaled back recently. The whammy and a robotalk pedal are the "strangest" modulations I own. I have an octave, a couple different overdrive/distortions, analog univibe, delay and a wah pedal. Previously I had an MM4 and FM4, but I've tried to cut down on the digital effects.
I just ordered a compressor, and after reading reviews, began to wonder-how much of your tone is playing/technique, and how much is helped by pedals?
Obviously, there are some players who could play a (insert crap guitar name here), into a (insert crap amp name here) and it would sound good. However, I think it would sound even better with a good rig.
Anyone have thoughts?
