Our blog on the best acoustic guitar effects pedals will help you get your head around amp modeling pedals and show you how to arrange guitar pedals.
When digital processing grew strong enough to imitate both digital-sounding and organic analog effects, the advent of multi-effects became a reality – and boy, have they come. Though early units like Zoom 505 didn’t exactly set the world on fire, developments in contemporary guitar technology have enabled them to make a big return, although with a much larger toolkit for the modern guitarist and producer.
If you are looking to drastically decrease the size of your setup, be sure to read our guide to the best multi guitar effect pedals.
Best Guitar Effects Pedals- Guitar Pedals Explained
Here, we have compiled a list of the finest and brightest stompboxes expected to hit the market in 2022:
1. TC Electronic Infinite Sample Sustained
Fans of the Electro-Harmonix Freeze and Gamechanger Audio Plus pedals, or just anybody interested in pushing the boundaries of sustain, will want to check this out; TC Electronics’ Infinite Sample Sustainer pedal lives up to its name with the sounds shown in these demonstrations.
This pedal is much more than a one-trick pony. There are seven effect types included, including the famed reverb algorithm from the Hall of Fame and a modulation block fashioned by fade-in, decay, and level settings. Additionally, there are Latching and Momentary modes.
2. SCF Gold TC Electronics
TC Electronic has reissued their original pedal 45 years later with an accurate but significantly upgraded Stereo Chorus Flanger.
Returning as the SCF Gold, it is an electric guitar pedal and offers its trio of modulation flavors in the same manner as the SCF, but with more headroom and a 9V DC, input to allow it to be powered by a standard pedalboard power source.
