The way you like to set up your rig up varies from player to player. But in some situations it’s just a pain to carry around 20x pedals, power them, connect them with god-knows how many patch cables and connectors, put them in the correct order and not to mention the cost of it all! This is where multi-effects units can be a god send. No patch cables, no hassles, just an single unit with all your favourite patches pre-programmed to cover your set list (some even come with a built-in expression pedal to waaaah away during your screaming solos!
Multi-FX pedals allows you to create your own signature tones or replicate the sounds of your favourite artist - many of them come preloaded with professionally built patches! They are ideal for guitarists just starting out, while you’re trying to find your feet within the big-wide-world of effects sounds; or for established musicians, a multi-fx unit is like having a Leatherman multi-tool in your arsenal… you may not want to go anywhere without it!
Often, industry-leading brands like BOSS will pack their multi effects units with both their latest and flagship FX so in most cases you end up with a tonne more bang for your buck pound than you’d expected!
Here at Strings Direct we stock the very best in multi effects brands including BOSS & Mooer.
