GIBSON CRUNCH FOOT PEDAL

An ""Effects Pedal"" (a.k.a. - stomp box) is a switch that you turn on and off with your foot. Its function is to alter the sound quality of an input signal. Normally you pluck a string or chord on your guitar and the signal is sent to your amplifier (a.k.a. - ""amp""). The Effects Pedal intercepts that signal before it reaches the amplifier and alters it. The Super Crunch Effects Pedal modifies the signal to mimic the beloved sound of ""Overdrive"" or ""Crunch"" before passing the signal along. Overdrive/Crunch is a term used to describe the sound of a tube amplifier ""driven"" to its limit (the point of mild tonal breakup) where the top and the bottom of the soundwave becomes clipped. Simply put, the Super Crunch Effects Pedal intercepts your guitar's signal and mimics this clipping effect. The result is a gritty or ""dirty"" tone that also provides additional sustain for playing leads or rhythm guitar. Several pedals can be linked together in a chain so you don't have to disconnect and reconnect boxes everytime you want a different sound. Also, when a pedal is off or inactive, the signal coming into the pedal is shunted onto a bypass, so that the ""dry"" or unaffected signal can move down the chain to the other effects pedals or straight to the amplifier if all the effects pedals on the chain are in the ""off"" position. The signal path for a chain of Maestro pedals is right-to-left. For the best results when using multiple effects pedals, it is common practice to put the Super Crunch pedal at the start of the chain, then the Funky Phaser, then the Cool Chorus."""
