When You Step On It


When You Step On It - What I mean by this statement is when you step on a guitar pedal what happens ? If your not feeling a jolt of excitement and passion well something is wrong with what your stepping on. Guitar pedals, Stompboxs, Guitar Toys aren't just to play with they are to bring about passion in your playing. When you hit that distortion box, you should feel adrenaline, excitement, a sense of something changed in your tone that brought all this on. I don't care if it is the first time you stepped on a particular delay or overdrive or wah wah or the 100th or 1000th it better bring you something. That is why your stepping on it ? Isn't ?

These pedals are made to create, to inspire and bring you new places. The Electro Harmonix new synth pedals the B9, Mel9, K9, Synth9 etc open up a whole new world of places to go with your guitars. Couple this with delay pedals, modulation pedals, and the endless fuzz, overdrive, distortion pedals you can reach levels of passion, tone and excitement that should make you want to play endlessly. If this is NOT the case, I strongly suggest you poke around and find a new pedal it is time you got excited and inspired "When You Step On It".
