Loving it so far
Vinicius Marcilio, 16.03.2020
I recently started playing guitar again after a very long pause and realized that I knew nothing about gear in general (specially pedals), so I started a journey to educate myself on the matter. There are tons of articles and videos on the internet, but I wanted something more comphreensive that would start on the basics and give you a general idea of what's available out there when it comes to gear. That's when I stumbled upon this book. It's fresh with tons of informations about modern and classic pedals, interviews with creators, guides, diagrams, etc.
I know it's not a definitive book, but it's a good starting point. The pictures are stunning. I'm loving it so far. I'd recommend for anyone who wants to know more about effect pedals.

Superb!
Siberian player, 29.05.2021
I had some books about stompboxes. how they work and how I can use them. But this book is awesome! Perfect markup, perfect paper, and print. When I opened the box and took it in my hands I spent about an hour reading it. It's impossible to close it and put into shelve.

When I purchased the book, I thought it was like a "Potent Pairings" kind of thing: Suggestions for use and combinations of certain effects.

It's much more than that: it's a complete in-depth look at pedals, how they work, how they came to be, circuitry and its elements, as well as the industry, chats with some of the great builders as well as famous musicians.
