Here they are, the FX pedals that guitarists can’t live without: the true tools of the trade that have stood the test of time and slotted themselves in comfortably to many a pedal board.
These re-released guitar pedals embody the spirit and technicalities of the originals, but have been improved in the re-making to remove previous flaws yet retain their authentic sounds and effects that have been loved by musicians for decades.
BOSS DM-2 Waza Craft
With the Waza Craft DM-2, the legendary DM stomp has been reborn with two different sound modes and greater versatility for today’s music styles. Using 100-percent analog circuitry and a BBD delay line, Standard mode in the DM-2W perfectly captures the lush, thick tone and 20-300 ms delay range of the original DM-2.
BOSS Blues Driver and Super Overdrive Waza Craft
The BD-2 Blues Driver and SD-1 Super Overdrive are two of the most iconic stomps in BOSS’ long history. Used by legions of guitarists worldwide for decades, these essential pedals are much-loved for their sweet and natural overdrive flavours that work for just about any artist.
THAT delay sound that forth from the reborn KORG SDD3000 was first created in 1982. The classical delay effect has been popular with lovers of rock ‘n’ roll sounds for over 20 year and is forever-adored by the likes of U2 and many more.
Clockworks is a faithful reissue of the classic pedal made by Electro-Harmonix in the 1970s. This fully-analog beauty can be used as a master clock for sequencers and drum machines and to trigger electronic percussion products. Plus it comes at a fraction of the price of the original and in a sturdier case.
One of the first phaser effect pedals ever made, the original DOD Phasor blazed the trail for all phaser pedals after it. The latest DOD Phasor brings the classic analog phaser effect driven by over forty years of tone-creating experience and it is a refined take on classic phasing effects with an incredible new look.
Essential for that mid-seventies guitar sound, the smooth distortion DOD Overdrive has been resurrected purely by popular demand. Its high-gain preamp has been a classic for nearly four decades, so whether you need a mellow, tube-sounding distortion, an overdrive to increase your amplifier's natural sustain or extreme distortion with a rich, full sound, the DOD Overdrive is certainly for you.
Nano Big Muff
It’s time to get yourself a piece of the Big Muff Pi! The very versatile pedal offers many tasty flavours of fuzz and distortion, providing rounded ‘flutey’ tones through to grunge and alt-rock tones, all the way around to brighter, raucous garage fuzziness - all kept in a compact little pedal. It’s also been around since 1973, meaning the Big Muff must have a couple of grey hairs now! And the Big Muff is available for bass guitars too.
Who would’ve thought that you were only three knobs away from perfection? The Fender Phaser Effect Pedal from the Classics Series adds versatility to your sound and is much more than a faithful recreation – it’s a bad ass unit that provides you with endless music-making possibilities!
Line 6 Pod 2.0
A bit more than an effects pedal, this kidney bean-shaped multiple FX and interface became part of every guitarists kit in 1997 when they realised is could capture the sound of almost any amplifier at bedroom level. The Pod 2.0 emulates classic 50's and 60s tones, amp combos and cabinets all in a compact, portable unit – and it's now only £99!
Line 6 DL4
Both magical in colour and sounds, the fabled ‘green box’ from Line 6 has been igniting creativity, passion and sheer awe since its release in 2000. Containing 16 models based on legendary echo and delay boxes, the DL4 has in turn become a classic in its own right and it is as popular with guitarists as it is with singers, drummers, bassists and keyboardists. Plus, the DL4 has recently dropped in price to £194. Bargain!
