I'm fairly new to the world of electronics, and still kiss my acoustic guitar goodnight. She's the sweetest sounding thing I know, but I'm gradually beginning to see the attraction of my new (second hand) squire strat. Can't knock it 'til I've tried it.
My question to you is...
Whats the point of pedals? Ok this is fairly broad, but come on - give me some incentive to part this hard cash. What can they give me that fiddling about with the tone knobs and equalisers can't.
And btw, what does 'tone' actually mean when associated with a knob? Can anyone give me a fairly simple explaination of what it's altering.
