Anyone who plays the electric guitar would agree they are powerful and versatile instruments, helping them make a wide range of killer riffs. The addition of a high-quality effects pedal can make the difference between good sound and something phenomenal. Carl Martin is in the business of making distinctive and totally outstanding pedals to personalize your music and make it even better. Founded in 1990 in Denmark, the Carl Martin Company produces a large line of guitar accessories including effects pedals, amplifiers and strings. They have developed a well-deserved reputation of providing innovative and unique products with "superior sound quality and features not seen on any other effect pedal". Used by an impressive number of professional musicians such as Andy Wood, Phil Soussan, Paul Nelson, Fred Turner, and more, it's not surprising they are the pedal supplier of choice for so many artists.
When deciding which pedal is best suited to complement your needs, take a few things into consideration. Do you play purely hard rock or mix it up with softer sounds? Do you need a multi-effect pedal with lots of distortions, modulations and filters or a more specific sound? Do you travel to many different venues? If so, make sure to look for a rugged pedal that can withstand daily wear and tear. If you plan to daisy chain your pedals, look for ones that connect quickly and easily. Once you pinpoint your individual needs, finding the right pedals will be a breeze.
If you need a good multi-use pedal with lots of versatility, try the Carl Martin Plexitone Overdrive pedal. This 3-channel pedal provides a wide range of tones like subtle overdrive, hard-rock crunch, shred and grunge without interfering with the amplifier. If you're a bass player looking for a more specialized sound, the Carl Martin Bass Chorus pedal is a good choice. Made to complement the low frequencies of a bass guitar, this effect goes all the way down to a low B on a 5-string. Another consideration if you use multiple pedals is how to keep them organized to avoid confusion on stage. With the Octa-Switch MKII Effects switching system, you can plug up to eight effect-loops, allowing you to assign pre-set combinations and easily switch between them.
With the impressive selection of Carl Martin effects pedals to choose from, you're guaranteed to find the right one to suit your band or individual playing style. By using a pedal to fine tune and enhance your style, you're sure to create unforgettable tunes to get the crowd seriously rocking out.
