How to Set Up Guitar Effects Pedals:
The guitar is one of the most popular instruments used in today's music making process. Adding effects to the guitar can be achieved by using effects pedals. These pedals come in different styles, sizes, colors and have different 'vocal' effects themselves. Setting up your guitar effects pedal properly will ensure that you will be able to add the extra zing that any song needs.
- Obtain two quarter-inch guitar cables. These cables will be used to connect all pieces of equipment in order to play with your pedal. Guitar cables can be found at most instrument and music stores. Make sure that the cables you obtain are long enough to reach between your amplifier, pedal and guitar for your comfort if you will be moving around.
- Check your guitar effects pedal's power source. Most effects pedals have two different ways to be powered. Generally they can be powered using either an adapter cable plugged into an outlet or with batteries. Using batteries may limit some functions depending on the type of pedal you have.
- Connect both guitar cables into the proper outlets. At the end of each guitar cable there will be a metal tip that is used to connect different instruments. With the first cable, connect an end to the guitar's output near the knobs (for electric guitars) and the other end should be connected to the outlet on your guitar effects pedal labeled input. Get the second cable and connect it to the guitar effects pedal outlet labeled output and connect the other end to your amplifier's input outlet.
- Turn on your equipment. After you have successfully hooked up all equipment and rechecked the connections, you are now ready to initiate power. Initiate power to your amplifier first. Some specialized effects pedals require that you actually step on the pedal itself to turn on the power. Guitar effects pedals that generally have more than one effect will usually have a power button.
- Perform a sound check. Now that you have powered on your equipment, it is time to perform a sound check to be sure that you have the preferred settings. Noise that sounds like constant electric shock can be an indicator that all cables are not connected properly or are receiving clean connections. You will also want to strum your guitar and adjust the levels of your effects pedals using the knobs or buttons provided. After completing this, you are now ready to choose the appropriate effect (if applicable) and play using your effects pedal.
Tips & Warnings:
- Always keep your guitar effects pedal's manual for future reference on settings and functionality as all effects pedals may vary. If you are using battery power for your effects pedal, disconnect the guitar cables after use to extend the life of the batteries as this will drain the power faster
- Always avoid connecting electrical equipment with wet or damp hands to reduce the risk of shock or damage to the equipment
