PEDAL CRUSH is the ultimate guide to effects pedals and their creative use. If you run a guitar, bass, keyboard, or other instrument through stompboxes, PEDAL CRUSH will open new doors for you in ways you never imagined.

  • Over 800 Pedals
  • 50 Interviews with artists and pedal makers
  • 200+ Tips and tricks to get the most out of your pedalboard
  • Foreword by master guitarist (and pedal crusher) Steve Vai
  • 376 colorful pages printed on high-quality certified-ecofriendly paper

PEDAL CRUSH is a trip into the expansive, eclectic, and mesmerizing world of effects pedals. These addictive little boxes have long since transcended their modest beginnings, maturing into truly creative tools for every kind of musician.

This book examines the stompbox phenomenon as a means of creative expression and personal sound shaping. Bursting with color photos and illustrations, it systematically covers over 800 pedals – from vintage to cutting edge, from the essential to the exotic, from popular classics to boutique wizardry. PEDAL CRUSH also dives deep into techniques, tips and tricks, pedalboards, software, and more. If you have a crush on pedals, this book will document your love affair like none other.

Get new ideas within minutes
We all know the feeling of staring at our pedalboards and wondering where our next idea is coming from. With all these pedals, where’s the inspiration? Right here. Reading PEDAL CRUSH, you’ll gain clarity and expanded knowledge of effects pedals and their creative possibilities. You’ll get new ideas within minutes to perfect your sound and explore new sonic territory – but beware: our readers say that once you dive into this book,  it’s hard to put it down again.

200+ tips take you towards new sonic territory
Getting into the zone and making great music becomes so much easier with PEDAL CRUSH. Over 200 creative tips and techniques will immediately take your pedal game to higher ground and into new sonic adventures. The tips and tricks range from simple things like how to order your pedals, to creative ideas like alternative gain staging or how to create spatial glitches with gated reverb.

Save money by knowing more before you buy your next pedal
Buying pedals is a gamble: too often we get a new pedal, plug it in, and just don’t get the creative charge we were hoping for. With PEDAL CRUSH, you can minimize your buyer’s remorse by really getting to know what’s out there, what your options are, and how different effects might work nicely together. Buy a beautiful and helpful book that you can share with friends and bandmates, and make up the cost in just a few successful purchases rather than costly failures.

Created by acclaimed authors and pedal experts
PEDAL CRUSH is written by Kim Bjørn and Scott Harper (of the famed KNOBS series of video tutorials) with help from a team of great advisors,  journalists, and editors. Additional texts and content contributions came from Alex Maiolo, Dan Orkin, Peter Fernando, Stefan Fast, Andy Martin, Brian Wampler, Kristoffer Høeg, and others. PEDAL CRUSH is edited by the Atomic Words team of Mike Metlay and Diana Smethurst. 

The perfect companion on your coffee table or in your studio
