Meet Our Effects Enthusiast
Working in the Musical Instrument industry for 25 years, Mike has played through countless pedals and effects processors. As a gigging musician for over 20 years, he has built his fair share of pedalboard rigs.
“From the first time I put a DOD Supra Distortion in front of my amp, I was hooked. I’ve been building pedalboards ever since. Experimenting with the interplay of different stompboxes, their position in the signal chain, and the alchemy of dialing each of them in has been something I’ve always loved to do. The recent explosion of effects designers and their innovations have created endless tonal possibilities for all musicians.”
Set up an interactive webinar today with Reflex Marketing’s resident effects enthusiast to see and hear the products for yourself. Not only will you get an idea of how our pedals sound, but Mike will also show you how the Reflex Effects Collection can help you create an RFX Destination Store of your own.
These preamp effects push, shape and saturate your original signal to transform your tone. From subtle grit to crushing fuzz, gain effects can either fatten up your tone or slam the front end of your amp.
Effects like compression, boost, and EQ harness the dynamics of your guitar. This can add warmth and sustain or push the amplifier’s front end into distortion.
Delay, Echo and Reverb pedals recreate your signal and blends it with the original. Time and feedback controls create a repeating or cavernous effect. This can create anything from subtle slapback and ambiance to haunting, canyon-like echoes.
These are pedals that use a combination of delay, volume, or phase modulation to create oscillations in your signal. Chorus, Flanger, Phaser and Tremolo are all tools that add movement to your sound.
This category covers a wide range of effects and utilities. From synthesizer effects and amplifier pedals to handsfree percussion effects, these stomp boxes offer specific solutions to expand the tone palette for the live performer or the studio musician.
Building the perfect pedalboard has a lot more to do than just the effects. There are many tools available that supply power, direct signal path, and provide control of other devices. These solutions are indispensable to the ergonomics of a pedal rig. These products allow the musician to easily control their sophisticated network of effects during a performance.
These pedals indicate the tuning of your instrument, letting you know when you have adjusted to the correct pitch. Some include buffer amps to boost your signal or power distribution to feed other pedals.
The backbone of any pedalboard rig are the cables that carry power and signal to the effects. High quality interconnect cables are crucial for noise-free operation. Islolated power cables also keep noise to a minimum as pedalboards become larger and more sophisticated. Solutions for attaching pedals to the board are also must-haves for any board builder.
