A compresser controls the overall volume of your guitar signal. If used too much, this will kill your tone. but it can be used for some very cool volume swell effects, play real soft and it will bring your volume up to level.
A phaser adds a set number of tone drops to your guitar signal. Sonically speaking this can either sound like a rotary speaker cabinet (real smeary tone) or, when turned up, it sounds like a ray gun.
An overdrive sounds like an amp turned all the way up.

all the overdrives Ive ever tried ive never liked. DS-1’s sound ok, and the Grunge pedal sounds ok, but those are distortion pedals not overdrive. Kurt alsways used (live) a DS-1 then switched to a DS-2 on the Nevermind tour. On the In Utero tour he used the Ds-2 and a Sans Amp. I used a Big Muff Reissue in recording and it actually turned out good. Just go into a music store and ask to try out some stuff and theyll let you, or if you dont have a shop around you, I dont know what to tell you. What sound are you trying to get anyway?September 28, 2001 at 11:35 am #55873
Randy Jane, you ever tried any of the real tube overdrives?September 29, 2001 at 3:13 am #55874
no, i usually dont try things Ill never afford. Overdrive in general is too weak for me though. Usually pedals over $100 I dont even pick up.I havent tried any pedals in a long time cause ive got more than I need right now.September 29, 2001 at 7:54 pm #55875
I ain’t trying to get some special sound…I got my style when i play so…
but if anyone have heard the frist solo on J Frusciantes new one …hmm something like that.
I just wanted to know what all those things was..so i can figure out what I need
I think I need a lot of sustain!!
thanx for the helpOctober 1, 2001 at 8:38 pm #55876
Warning though: Compressers can destroy tone. You might want to try out a straight up distortion box for a similar effect.
If you don’t know exactly what you want, you might just want to try a multieffect like the zoom 506, they go for $50 or less on the used market and will give you an idea of what different effects sound like.November 29, 2001 at 5:37 pm #55877
Most people seem to be really confused about this so:
As u can guess it can sustain your sound for longer, but you’ve really gotta hear it before u can understand what it sounds like
This gives s kind of sweeping/swirling effect which makes your note seem as if it is going up and down repeatedly
This overdrives your guitar signal basically (duh) by adding more gain to it. It won’t sound very good if you want a distorted tone, in which case you need dstortion. But if you already have your guitar slightly distorted, overdrive just makes it more distorted.
Does exactly what it says on the tin: models feedback. This is usefull if you want feedback without having to turn your amp up real loud.
