Guitar Effects Circuits

  • Denton J. DaileyEmail author


There are many different types of guitar effects circuits, and I like to break them down into two main categories. First are overdrive and distortion circuits. These circuits are usually fairly simple and their theory of operation is relatively easy to understand. The second group includes more advanced effects such as phase shifters, wah-wah pedals, vocoders, compressors, reverbs, and so on. Many of these circuits can be quite complex.
