Wah, Tone & Volume

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". The effects produced are similar to those of wah and flanger/phaser pedals. But that understates it, massively. 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 original 1995 Lovetones owned by Henry Olsen, bass guitarist with Primal Scream, and multiple subsequent collaborations.

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

1995 Lovetone Meatball Multi-Effect Envelope Filter

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 to try this one!

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

1970s Shaftesbury Squall HA-9P
Pioneering Volume/Wah Multi-Effects Pedal

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!

2005 Electro-Harmonix Graphic Fuzz
Graphic Equalizer, with Overdrive & Envelope

You'd want to try it, if only for saying you've got an Atomic Cock. An instant gateway to the tone of a precisely cocked wah pedal. By adjusting the sweep knob, you can activate your chosen sweet-spot tone, without in-flight wah pedal adjustment. Probably most recognisable when set to replicate the harmonic overdrive of Mark Knopfler's Money For Nothing riff.

Loved by: Anyone that likes wah pedals, but struggles to get the exact pedal angle in live performance.

2015 Daredevil Atomic Cock Fixed Wah/Overdrive
One-Stomp Tone & Harmonic Precision

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.

1980s Boss CE-2 Chorus
The World's First & Finest Compact Chorus

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.

1990s Ernie Ball 6166 Volume Pedal
The Classic Volume Pedal, No Batteries Required

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.

2005 Dunlop Cry Baby Standard Wah
The One That Started It All

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.
