The Bonehead's Guide to Effects
Like the special effects used in Speilberg movies, guitar effects can be equally as dramatic and baffling. The Boneheads Guide to Effects gets right to the point with an illustrated description of every type of guitar effect, including their sound, application and the various formats available. From a simple "stompbox" to high-powered rack systems, all are clearly explained in terms of how they function and how they can be used to enhance your playing. The text includes a detailed buyers guide to assembling your ideal effects system, alongside useful safety and maintenance tips.
