Premier Guitar October 2013: Stompbox addicts look forward to this one all year long – our annual Pedal Issue. We review 30 of the hottest guitar and bass pedals on the market, from overdrives, distortions, and fuzzes to reverbs, delays, modulators, and bizarre-o stomps. We also profile three pedal builders: relative newcomers XAct Tone Solutions and JHS, as well as Mike Beigel – the man who revolutionized guitar effects when he founded Mu-tron back in the 1970s. But that's not all the pedal goodness. We also show you how to build your own pedalboard with pro features for under $100, as well as highlight some of the coolest pedalboards from PG readers. Other features this month include interviews with Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi, Warren Haynes, Russian Circles, and L.A. session man Josh Smith. In addition to the smorgasbord of pedal reviews, including gear from Electro-Harmonix, Jim Dunlop, Vox, EBS, Zoom, Pigtronix, and Death by Audio, we also review the new Fano Alto de Facto GF6 semi-hollowbody, the Crimsontone Moro guitar head, and Music Man Classic Sabre bass.
