  • Boost
  • A “boost” pedal, also known as a “clean boost,” is a type of guitar effects pedal designed to increase the volume of the guitar signal without adding significant distortion or coloration to the tone. Boost pedals are used to amplify the signal level, allowing guitarists to achieve higher volume levels or to push their amplifier into overdrive for increased saturation and sustain.

    Boost pedals typically feature a simple interface with controls for adjusting the level of boost, often represented by a single knob or a toggle switch. When engaged, the boost pedal increases the gain of the signal passing through it, effectively amplifying the sound. Unlike overdrive or distortion pedals, which introduce clipping and saturation to the signal, boost pedals aim to provide a clean and transparent volume increase.

    Boost pedals are versatile tools that can serve various purposes in a guitarist’s rig:

    1. **Volume Boost**: Boost pedals can be used to increase the volume of the guitar signal, allowing players to stand out during solos or to compensate for differences in volume between guitars or pickup settings.

    2. **Overdrive Stacking**: Boost pedals are commonly used to push the front end of an overdrive or distortion pedal, resulting in increased saturation and sustain. By placing the boost pedal before a drive pedal in the signal chain, guitarists can achieve higher levels of gain and distortion without sacrificing clarity or dynamics.

    3. **Amp Pushing**: Boost pedals can also be used to drive the input stage of a tube amplifier harder, causing the amp to naturally overdrive and produce a more saturated and harmonically rich tone. This is particularly useful for guitarists seeking to achieve classic tube amp breakup at lower volume levels.

    4. **Tone Shaping**: Some boost pedals feature EQ controls or tone shaping options, allowing guitarists to tailor the frequency response of their signal. These pedals can be used to boost specific frequencies or to shape the overall tonal characteristics of the guitar sound.

    Overall, boost pedals are essential tools for guitarists looking to enhance their tone, increase volume levels, or drive their amplifier into overdrive for added saturation and sustain. Whether used as a standalone effect or in combination with other pedals, boost pedals offer versatility and flexibility in shaping the guitar sound.

  • EQ
  • While Ed Sheeran primarily relies on the natural sound of his acoustic guitar and vocals, he occasionally uses EQ (Equalization) to shape and enhance his tone during live performances or in the studio. EQ pedals or onboard preamps can allow him to adjust the frequency response of his guitar signal to suit the acoustics of different venues or to achieve specific tonal characteristics. Here’s how EQ might be utilized in Ed Sheeran’s setup:

    1. **Tonal Shaping**: EQ can be used to adjust the balance of frequencies in the guitar signal, allowing Ed Sheeran to shape his tone to his liking. For example, he might boost the midrange frequencies to bring out the warmth and presence of his acoustic guitar, or cut certain frequencies to reduce any harshness or mud in the sound.

    2. **Feedback Control**: In a live setting, EQ can help control feedback by notching out problematic frequencies that might cause the guitar signal to feed back through the amplification system. This can be particularly useful when performing in venues with challenging acoustics or high volume levels.

    3. **Room Correction**: In situations where the venue’s acoustics are less than ideal, EQ can be used to compensate for any deficiencies in the sound. By adjusting the EQ settings, Ed Sheeran can tailor the guitar tone to sound more balanced and natural, regardless of the room’s acoustic properties.

    4. **Matching Gear**: EQ can also be used to match the tone of Ed Sheeran’s guitar to the sound of other instruments or equipment in his setup. For example, he might adjust the EQ to complement the tonal characteristics of his vocal microphone or to blend seamlessly with backing tracks or other instruments.

    Overall, while EQ may not be a central component of Ed Sheeran’s guitar effects setup, it can still play a valuable role in shaping his tone and ensuring that he achieves the desired sound in different performance environments. Whether used subtly for tonal shaping or more aggressively for feedback control, EQ allows Ed Sheeran to tailor his guitar tone to suit his musical vision and performance needs.

  • Guitar Effect Pedal
  • New
  • Wah
  • A wah pedal, short for “wah-wah” pedal, is an effects pedal commonly used with electric guitars and occasionally with electric keyboards and bass guitars. It’s known for its distinctive sound, characterized by a sweeping, resonant filter effect that mimics the human voice saying “wah.” Here’s how a wah pedal works and some common features:

    1. **Pedal Design**: A wah pedal typically consists of a foot-operated pedal and a housing unit. The pedal is attached to a potentiometer (variable resistor) inside the housing, which adjusts the frequency response of the audio signal based on the pedal’s position.

    2. **Expression Pedal Compatibility**: Many wah pedals are compatible with expression pedals, allowing players to control the wah effect in real-time using their foot. This adds a dynamic and expressive element to the performance, enabling players to vary the intensity and speed of the wah effect as they play.

    3. **Sweep Range**: The sweep range refers to the range of frequencies affected by the wah pedal. As the pedal is rocked back and forth, it sweeps through a range of frequencies, emphasizing certain frequencies while attenuating others. This creates the characteristic “wah” sound.

    4. **Q Control**: Some wah pedals feature a Q control, also known as resonance or bandwidth control, which adjusts the width of the frequency band affected by the wah effect. Higher Q settings result in a narrower band of frequencies being emphasized, producing a more pronounced and focused wah sound, while lower Q settings produce a broader, more subtle effect.

    5. **True Bypass**: Like many other effects pedals, wah pedals may feature true bypass circuitry to ensure that the pedal does not color or degrade the guitar signal when it’s not in use. True bypass preserves the tone and integrity of the instrument’s sound when the wah effect is bypassed.

    6. **LED Indicator**: Some wah pedals include an LED indicator to indicate when the effect is engaged. This provides visual feedback to the player, especially useful in low-light settings or on dimly lit stages.

    7. **Treadle Grip**: The treadle grip refers to the surface texture or material of the pedal’s foot surface. Some wah pedals feature textured or ribbed surfaces to provide better grip and control, especially when using the pedal with bare feet or in slippery conditions.

    Overall, a wah pedal is a versatile and expressive effect that adds character and flair to guitar solos, rhythm playing, and improvisations. Whether used for funky rhythm parts, expressive lead lines, or experimental sounds, a wah pedal offers guitarists a wide range of creative possibilities for shaping their tone and adding dynamic expression to their playing.
