For years, Hank Donovan’s EffectsBay.com has been serving up our daily dose of effects pedal news, deals, reviews, and giveaways. If you want to stay up-to-date on the latest in boutique effects pedals, EffectsBay is a must-bookmark website.
After featuring dozens of pedalboards in his popular Pedal Line Friday feature, he noticed one thing: there were no products on the market to help guitarists keep track of their pedals’ knob positions. Enter Pedal Labels. Pedal Labels are sold as packs of removable stickers, in various knob configurations, that give guitarists the ability to keep track of their go-to settings. Now, no matter what happens between gigs or during set-up, your tone stays consistent.
I caught up with Hank to talk about his favorite effects, his ever-growing collection of gear tee shirts, and his new venture.
