So, you are ready to buy your first guitar pedal…. but where do you start? With so many options and so many different answers out there, this decision can be a bit overwhelming. 

Allow us to simplify things for ya 😉

Choosing a guitar pedal largely depends on the sound you’re looking to achieve and the style of music you play. That being said, a good pedal to start with is a basic overdrive pedal.

An overdrive pedal simulates the sound of an overdriven tube amplifier, adding a warm and slightly distorted tone to your guitar. This type of pedal is great for genres such as blues, rock, and country, and can be used to add a subtle crunch to your clean sound or push your distorted tone into high-gain territory.

Some popular overdrive pedals to consider include the Ibanez Tube Screamer, the Boss BD-2 Blues Driver, and the Fulltone OCD.

Ultimately, the best pedal for you will depend on your personal preferences and playing style, so it’s always a good idea to try out a few different pedals before making a purchase.

Another major factor that affects your tone is the quality of your guitar strings. Keep your strings fresh and free of rust and gunk with a String Sling.
