    Top 10 Best Pedalboard Power Supplies in the UK 2021 (Strymon, Donner and More)

    After collecting guitar pedals for a while, eventually, a daisy chain just isn’t going to cut it. More stompboxes need more power, so, before long, you’ll get a white noise buzz. You can run the gauntlet using batteries, but that’s a risky business too. If you want to avoid both these scenarios and play in relative peace with decidedly less noise, a pedalboard power supply is the way to go.  Finding a power supply can be hard, though, and sometimes it feels like you need an electrical engineering degree to figure out all the terms. However, armed with the information in this guide, you’ll be able to tell your mA from your volts and easily find what will work best for you. From there, you can shop around all the top dogs like Voodoo Labs, Strymon, Truetone and MXR.

  • Top 10 Best Fuzz Pedals in the UK 2021

    Top 10 Best Fuzz Pedals in the UK 2021

    The fuzz pedal was invented in 1960 after a recording session for a Marty Robbins song called "Don’t Worry", where the guitar amp faltered and created a fuzzy sound. Marty decided to include it on the track anyway and people went crazy for the result! The fact that no-one had ever heard anything like it before meant everyone wanted the tone. Soon after that, the guitar world changed forever as we started to put sound controls at our feet.  Essentially, a fuzz pedal is a circuit that breaks the audio coming from the amp, clipping it so hard that it sounds distorted; that's why great guitarists like Jimi Hendrix and Keith Richards love it! While most fuzz pedals are pretty similar, what sets them apart is their tone - so let’s find the right one for you. Whether you're after a germanium pedal with a classic design or an op-amp for under £100, we've got a range of options for you to check out!

    Top 10 Best Reverb Pedals in the UK 2021 (Electro-Harmonix, Boss and More)

    When boiled down to the basics, reverb is essentially one sound bouncing off the walls and back to the listener. This process creates a short echo, and it feels like there’s a sense of space in the music. This is one of the oldest tricks in the music book, but luckily, nowadays we don’t have to play in huge concert halls as some smart folks have managed to manipulate that sound and put it into a trusty stompbox. Seeing as there are so very many guitar reverb pedals out there, we’ve put together a short buying guide that will lay out the options available to you to help you create your perfect tone. Then, you can see our top-class recommendations on Amazon, Gear4music and eBay including Electro-Harmonix's famed Oceans 11 and offerings from Boss and Fender.
