We run through 11 classic pairings of effects pedals to provide you with some inspiration to plug in and play… and of course to try some combinations of your own

Life too short for long YouTube videos? Please see the ‘Interesting bits and go-to sections’ information below.

Welcome to the show! In this episode, Daniel and I run through some classic effects pairings: two effect types that go together like peas and carrots. Bacon and eggs. Erm, op amps and clipping diodes?
Anyway, no doubt there are many many more, but we’ll kick you off with these 11 to get you thinking and perhaps spark some ideas of your own. We’re doing this because it might not be immediately obvious that combinations of effects can be really cool; moreover that you can create some really lovely sounds without having to own every pedal under the sun.
Please remember that we’re talking more about effects types than specific pedals here, so don’t worry if you don’t have the exact pedals: another of the same type will get you there!

Enjoy the episode!
