Description: "How to Design, Customize,
and Build Effect Pedals, Advanced version"
The Indyguitarist "How to Modify Effect
Pedals" book showed you how to make your
pedals sound better by performing easy modifications.
The "How to Build Effect Pedals...for beginners"
book showed you how to get started building basic
circuits that sounded great.
This new book, "How to Design, Customize,
and Build Effect Pedals, Intermediate and Advanced
Level" will walk you through designing custom
circuits for effect pedals that YOU plan, design,
and build from the ground up.
This book will teach you everything you need
to know to get to the level that most "boutique"
pedal builders are at and in MUCH LESS time...most
builders and DIY'ers have struggled for years
to learn this information, now it's at your fingertips
and in a easy to understand language like all
If you want the tone of the pro's, you need a
boutique type pedal to do it. Buying them can
get expensive quickly (some boutique pedals sell
for over $500 each!) What's a guitarist to do
without robbing a bank? BUILD YOUR OWN!!
Written for those who have purchased a previous
Indyguitarist 'DIY' book or have electronics experience.
Hard copy (book) only, no downloads available.
