Description

The term "stompbox" includes a variety of electronic devices such as fuzzboxes, wah-wah pedals, talk boxes, reverb and tremolo units, and other add-ons that electric guitarists use to sculpt their sounds. In this colorful book, Guitar Player Technical Editor Art Thompson traces the development of these gadgets through in-depth interviews with the people who created them. Musicians, engineers, and entrepreneurs provide behind-the-scenes tales of the events and accidents that led to the innovative guitar effects of the '60s, '70s and '80s. For example, during a 1961 Nashville recording session for Marty Robbins' "Don't Worry, " a mixing board channel began distorting, but the guitarist (Grady Martin) kept playing - creating Nashville's first recorded fuzz solo and an insatiable demand for this potent new effect.show more
