Lately I have been debating if I should get rid of most of my effects. I feel like I just hide behind them. I would keep things really simple, and maybe have 1-3 pedals. Anyone else ever toyed with this idea before?
I agree.I have been building my own effects trying to look for that tone. I never had a channel switcher for my amp so I built one and it dawned on me that the "tones" I was looking for (clean and dirty) were in my amp all along.:rockon2:iaresee said:Not at all. I haven't ditched my effects, but if I can leave them at home I will. I love showing up for a gig with nothing but a guitar and amp. You can do a hell of a lot with a great 2 channel amp, your volume knob and your fingers.
