The best acoustic guitar pedals are designed to transform your tone. Hey, we know acoustic guitarists love to wax lyrical about purity – the unadulterated sound of flesh ’n’ fingernail against phosphor bronze strings, the sonorous vibrations of a fine rosewood body, and the tactile responsiveness of an ebony fretboard. Just you and your acoustic guitar is one of life's great pleasures, isn't it?

However, there's a time and a place for everything, and that includes acoustic guitar pedals. That place could be a live stage, a time when all you can summon from your guitar is horrific feedback. Or it could be a time when creativity has deserted you and you need to inject a spark back into your playing.

After spending a decade in music retail, I’m now a freelance writer for Guitar World, MusicRadar, Guitar Player and Reverb, specialising in electric and acoustic guitars, bass, and almost anything else you can make a tune with. When my head’s not buried in the best of modern and vintage gear, I run a small company helping musicians with songwriting, production and performance, and I play bass in an alt-rock band.
