Pedal Effects

This static page will contain an organized set of writings and links to blog's entries related to the world of Pedal Effects for Electric Guitars.
We will start with a description of which categories of effects do actually exist and, what is expected for every family of pedals belonging to every category.

Following these generic introductory texts, I will try to summarize the links to already posted entries related to Reviews and Demos that I made.

The idea is that you can easily find whatever the topic related to pedal effects are you looking for.
The contents of this static page will be progressively updated with new entries and, entries revisited from my old blog. Stay in tune.
