Over 30 Cheap Guitar Pedals That Work Great

30 Cheap Guitar Pedals

Hi folks, Here’s a quick video overview of a bunch of inexpensive/ cheap guitar pedals I own and use in my studio and for live gigs sometimes. There are a few Major Brands such as Seymour Duncan & DigiTech but these are mostly pedals from Xvive and Donner. A link to all the individual blog post reviews are below, so take a look at the each video post if you’re interested in anything.

The links below start in order of the pedals as I mention them but then start to veer off into groups. Also, some pedals don’t have individual reviews/post. I’ve also added links to reviews of pedals and related things, not in the video and will continue to update this post with new stuff.

If you have any comments or suggestion, please post your thoughts in the comments below.

Danelectro puts the D-2 FAB Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal in your hands without wiping out your financial portfolio. History was made in 1975 when a mom-and-pop store in California commissioned the production of just 200 of what is perhaps the best guitar overdrive effect ever. Unlike any other effects unit, that pedal authentically simulated the breakup that occurs when a tube amp is run at full volume. You will occasionally see an original in the stage rig of a major artist. IF you could find an original offered for sale, you should probably sit down before inquiring about the price . . . The Danelectro D-2 FAB Overdrive pedal features Level, Tone, and O.D. controls. – No Review Video

Acoustic Guitar:
