It's a golden age for guitar effects pedal users and makers right now, with over 40 years of design experience and musical experimentation to draw on. Your choice includes the original, pioneering vintage models, or souped-up clones from more contemporary designers. Dave Hunter spells out the pros and cons of both in this uniquely comprehensive guide. In a guitarist-friendly style, the book explores: what each type of effect does, how pedals work, the best order to connect pedals, and how to make the most of the pedals you have. Also includes exclusive interviews revealing eight top pedal makers' radically diverse approaches to building effects.

Comments about Hal Leonard Guitar Effects Pedals - The Practical Handbook:
This was a great intro to pedal theory. Without getting too technical it talks about how the pedals work, exactly what it does, what it DOESN'T do and the distinctions between different pedals. I've read it but got it from my library, so I didn't hear the CD that comes with it. That might boost the experiance a bit, there's 60+ tracks of samples for each pedal (or brand) that Hunter talks about. Check this book out.
