A variety of accessories and special effects are available to the guitarist. While only a few of them are discussed here, investigate all the effects you encounter. Some are worth the price but many are not. Do not purchase any accessory until you know what you want.
Wah-Wah Pedal Creates the effect described by its name. Rapid use of the pedal results in a short WAH-WAH-WAH sound that can be effective on rock numbers if not overused. Applying the pedal slowly produces an ooo-uh-ah-ah-uh-ooo effect heard mainly on some soul rock tunes.
Phase Shifter Creates what can best be described as a swirling sound. The speed can be adjusted but not as easily as the Wah-Wah pedal.
Fuzz Box Creates a fuzzy, distorted sound, characteristic of acid rock.
