Details: This book is primarily intended to awaken and encourage the joy of experimentation in order to give free rein to one's own creativity for the design of effects in the DIY construction of guitar effects pedals.It is primarily aimed at do-it-yourself beginners as well as those who not only want to deal with kits available on the market, but also have the goal of creating their own simple effects or modifying existing ones.Step by step, the theoretical and practical knowledge needed to build an effects pedal is taught. The content of the book is divided into three main chapters for this purpose:In the chapter of theory, the functioning of the electronic components up to their use in the effects circuits are presented.The chapter of experimenting contains the construction of the circuits on so-called experimental breadboards and describes the fascinating simulation of the effect circuits on the computer by means of freely available software.The final chapter of practice is the chapter, in which the necessary tools and other materials are listed and in which finally the practical implementation to the self-built effects pedal is described.Don't worry, a degree in electrical engineering is not a prerequisite to get through this book. Easy-to-understand explanations of the electronic circuits or their components make prior knowledge of these areas unnecessary.At the end of the day, this book should enable you to understand the basics of applied electronic circuits, build a simple guitar effects pedal yourself, proudly hold it in your hands and with great joy - motivated and loud - clamp it between amplifier and guitar, thus drawing your neighbors' attention to your new hobby with beautifully distorted tones.The following three effects pedal types are presented in this book: Booster Overdrive Distortion/Fuzz
