Wah, Tone & Volume

1995 Lovetone
Multi-Effect Envelope Filter

A rare and hugely versatile pedal. The third off the production line - Serial # 0003. Lovetone describe the Meatball as "an amazing envelope follower/triggered filter". This is a pedal with infinite sonic possibilities - not to mention additional FX looping. For multiple instruments, not just guitars. Has to be heard (and experimented with) to be believed! One of a trio of Lovetones owned by Henry Olsen, bass guitarist with Primal Scream.

Loved by: The Edge, Kirk Hammett, Billy Duffy, Robert Smith, Kevin Shields and more.

1970s Shaftesbury Squall Wah/Volume HA-9P

Tame by modern standards, but back in the early-70s, this was a pioneer. A Volume and Wah pedal in one. OK, quite an innovation. And then, why not, white noise filters that enable you to recreate the sound of a raging tornado or the surf on a beach. Oh, and just because there's still some space, a push button police siren, that can be activated in parallel with the instrument signal. Mad, maybe. But listen to 70s glam band The Sweet's classic Blockbuster and you'll know exactly why you need this one!

Loved by: Anyone who couldn't get hold of a Cry Baby in the 70s - and The Sweet!

2005 Electro-Harmonix Graphic Fuzz

It's just a graphic equalizer, it's just a row of frequency sliders. Which is what I thought when I first plugged this in. But start to experiment with it and you're hooked. From thin & reedy (think Nutbush City Limits) to full-fat cream, can make any guitar sound like any guitar. As a floor-pedal graphic equalizer, it takes a lot of beating.

Loved by: Gary Moore, Bob Dylan (for his vocals!), Adrian Belew, and The Chemical Brothers - quite a range!

1980s Boss CE-2 Chorus

Classic no-frills chorus pedal. The first scale production compact chorus pedal, first introduced in 1979, and running strong through to 1991. You'd be hard-pressed to find any guitarist playing in the 80s, whatever their style, without one of these on their board.

Loved by: Johnny Marr, Jimmy Page, Josh Klinghoffer, Andy Rourke, Andy Summers, and many, many more converts.

2022 MXR Custom Shop Phase 90

The father of all phasers, and the first pedal out of the shop when MXR launched in 1974, the legendary MXR Phase 90. This one's a Custom Shop recreation of that fabled original - with the addition of a 9V power socket and an LED to tell you when it's on (as if you'd need to know). A classic and brilliantly simple design, switching between phase modes at the turn of a single control knob. Whether you're after full-on rock or freaky funk, this pedal has it all.

Loved by: Eddie Van Halen, David Gilmour, Jimmy Page, Mick Jones, Andy Summers, and all that followed them

1990s Ernie Ball 6166 Volume Pedal

A timeless classic. Built like a tank, perfect pedal response. The original 1990s version, with the side jacks (which seems to make more sense anyway, if you're chaining effects on a board). Originally owned by Henry Olsen, bass guitarist with Primal Scream, and multiple subsequent collaborations.

Loved by: Mark Knopfler, Josh Homme, Johnny Greenwood, Henry Olsen, and many, many more.

2005 Dunlop Cry Baby Standard Wah Pedal

First produced in 1966 and immortalised by players like Clapton and Hendrix, this is a modern take on that original - more focused high end, more aggressive and accentuated wah sound.

Loved by: Eric Clapton, John Frusciante, Matt Bellamy, Kelly Jones, Brian May, Paul Weller, and pretty much everyone else.

2000s Boss Harmonist PS-6 Pitch Shifter

Endless possibilities. The only limit is sleep deprivation. A harmoniser pedal featuring four pitch shift effects and up to three voice harmonies. Perfect for experimentation, even more perfect for creating multi-tracked guitar harmonies that will leave even Brian May open-mouthed.

Loved by: The sonic experimenters, the fearless innovators, the ones who want to sound like they've got a guitar orchestra hidden behind stage.
