One of the things which make having an electric guitar awesome is the availability of effects. These days, there are a lot different effects or FX which can enhance your performance. Some of them are:
Stomp Boxes: These are the little three inch or four inch boxes which are in front of a musician when he or she is playing with his or her guitar. They are called as such because you have to step on them to be able to utilize them. It is also the only way for you to turn the effects on or off.
Reverb: Reverb units allow you to produce a sound which is similar to when you are singing inside the shower room. If you are looking for a particular gadget which can help you generate a sound as if you are in a huge hall, then reverb units are your option.
Echo: Or sometimes referred to as a long delay is a kind of effect which allows you to generate a loud sound which eventually bounces back toward your direction. By lengthening the delay, you can play against the same notes you had just generated.
Having different effects can make playing with your gretsch synchromatic at Musicians friend more interesting.
