The classic and traditional sound of the guitar that has been pushed to the limit by the hand of important instrumentalists throughout history, has meant that the need to try to reproduce them cannot be ignored. Given this, there are hundreds of fans interested in feeding their pedalboard with some known effect of their idols.

But before going for the choice of effects, you have to think about the scope you want to have with them, this means that it will be necessary to get a rack where you can put everything. It will be the first thing to be addressed.

Guitar Effects for Better Tone

With the pedalboard thing taken care of, all that remains is to put in some effects and start experimenting with what can be achieved from an optimal chain of effects.

First of all, it is important to know that the most effective thing to play with the sound will be the hardware of the instrument itself, this means that the contribution of the pedals will be complementary. For that, it is enough to know in detail the connection of the elements (microphones, knobs, and selectors), which allows for accentuating what you want to highlight at the time of execution; something very common in the more traditional styles.

Finally, start with a choice of iconic effects of the time (in their modern versions and optimized for modern equipment) or opt for some models on the market that offer interesting possibilities by combining the previous ones in a single presentation with particularities, making the choice cheaper.
