Even though the highlights and features of the Electro-Harmonix effects at musicians friend make them some of the best around, something that I always like about the Electro-Harmonix pedals is the cool artwork on a few of them. It certainly isn’t anything fancy, but I just love the simple looks of many of them as they remind me of classic 50′s vibes, 60s and 70s psychedelics, and as a video game fan I get this Fallout feeling from looking at a few of them like the “Soul Food Overdrive”, “Q-Tron” series, and the “XO Stereo Memory Man”. They just have a really cool vibe to me in the artwork on the pedals. Of course this isn’t why most people would buy the Electro-Harmonix Effect pedals, but it is a nice plus to see some of the neat pedal artwork. Feels like they capture the feel of your music.
Really hard to give you details on the Effects pedals since there are probably at least 100 different ones to give you that exact sound and effects you want that it is just easier to browse through them and find the one you need. Personally all I want is deep distortion that gives me a Metallica-…and Justice for All sound. Just love that deep crunch that sounds clean and dirty at the same time. Man I loved it when I discovered pedals for the first time and was able to get my guitar to sound I was trying to get. Instead of that distortion my amp tended to give that had way more of a treble crunch than the deeper bass crunch I wanted.
