The first effects pedals

The sound of this pedal is best known for the Rolling Stones hit “I Can’t Get No Satisfaction”. Warwick made the first Wah pedal in 1967: The Clyde McCoy. Kelsey-Morris Sound developed the first octave effect in 1967. Jimi Hendrix called this pedal “Octavio”. In the 1970s and 1980s, many effects were added. At the end of the 1990s, the first digitalĀ effects pedals were created, which further expanded the possibilities.
