With that information above, it’s fairly apparent that a pedal power supply keeps things simpler and easier to manage than a daisy chain. But there’s more! Daisy chaining can also cause a lot of electrical noise. As the outputs are not isolated, all of your pedal’s electronics are essentially connected together in the same ‘ground loop’. This means that if one pedal is creating a lot of noise, then it will affect your other stompboxes too. Why Do Guitar Pedals Still Use 9V Batteries? Electrical polarity (positive or negative) is the term used to describe the direction of current flow in an electrical circuit. All this means is that you will come across pedals that are labelled either as ‘centre positive’ or ‘centre negative’, to reflect their polarity.Multi FX units contain lots of varying effects in one larger hardware format. These are perfect for players who want to cut right to the chase and try out loads of different sounds. And because most multi FX feature an effects loop, you can still mix and match the sounds with other pedals you buy. The only real downside is that you get what you’re given at first; you have less choice for the specific sound profiles you want. Mini pedals are exactly what they say on the tin. They’re guitar pedals that have been made more compact so that you can either use more of them on a ‘board, or you can run a much smaller rig. You’ll often find that two versions of a pedal are available – a ‘full-sized’ one, and a compact one. In a lot of instances they’re exactly the same thing, just in different sized casings, and the smaller one can be cheaper. Run your guitar/bass/keyboard through the first pedal, then to the next one, and so on until you get to the last one.

Keep an eye out for trusted pedal manufacturers such as Boss, Electro Harmonix, T-Rex and Ibanez – all legends in the business who have been making top notch pedals at good for prices for decades. Many mini guitar pedals can also be powered using a 9V battery, but you should avoid relying on them too much as there’s always the risk that they will run flat at a vital moment in a performance or recording take.
If you’re using a wah pedal, then you should mount it on the side of your pedalboard that you feel most comfortable using it with your foot. Simple! However, with the rest of your pedals, you should ask yourself about which ones you’re most likely to use. For example, your distortion and overdrive pedals are likely to get regularly stamped on. Therefore, it makes sense to place them at the front of your pedalboard. This could be a good thing if you often find yourself wasting time fiddling with controls on your pedals, but guitarists who enjoy sculpting their tones, they may find mini pedals a little limiting in that respect. My Review: The Plexi Drive Mini features an eye-catching design, but what impressed me the most about this pedal was its ability to transform the tone of my guitar. I discovered that this mini device can be used to boost lead parts or solos momentarily, or it can be left on to make your tone sound more gritty.
