Guitarists have always been searching for new and innovative ways to broaden the horizons of what they can do with their instrument. Of course, it's a lot easier today than it was 60 years ago, and it's all thanks to cutting-edge effects pedal companies like Tech 21. In fact, Tech 21's line of effects pedals is loaded with state-of-the-art stompboxes to help you tap into the inmost depths of your musical creativity. From tone-shaping effects pedals to overdrive, phasing, tremolo and more, Tech 21 has an effects pedal for every taste and style.
So what pedal is right for you? That'll depend on whether you're a bass player or a guitarist, and what you're trying to achieve in a sound. For example, if you're a bass player who wants an extra layer of fuzz on their tone, check out the Red Ripper Distortion Bass Effects Pedal. Loaded with aggressive sounds and vintage filter-style effects, this pedal actually responds to the dynamics of your touch as you perform. Play harder for more fuzz and higher harmonics, or ease up for less fuzz and enhanced lower harmonics. Simple to operate and built like a tank, the Red Ripper is one of Tech 21's biggest sellers for a reason.
Another one of Tech 21's more popular effects pedals is the Hot-Rod Analog Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal. Designed by tone-expert Andrew Barta, this pedal is inspired by vintage amps to provide you with a classic Plexi tone. Plexi heads were well-known for delivering ear-bleeding levels of gain during their heyday, and with this pedal, you can now enjoy the same vicious gain that made the Plexi so renowned in the late '60s.
Tech 21's line of rugged, flexible, and user-friendly pedals are no stranger to today's most inventive guitarists and bassists. To get a good idea of how trusted the Tech 21 name is, all you have to do is browse their ever-growing roster of recording artists, which currently includes Jeff Ament of Pearl Jam, Michael Anthony of Van Halen, and Tim Bob of Rage Against the Machine. In other words, when you want to let your imagination run wild during a performance, Tech 21 has an effects pedal for you.
