Guitar Technology

Whilst many people still think of SOUND ON SOUND as only covering synthesizers, keyboards and computer software, regular readers over the past 38 years will know that we include frequent coverage of a heck of a lot of Guitar Technology products — including Guitar Amp Modellers, Guitar Pedals, Guitar Combos, Speakers, Pickups, Guitar Accessories plus Guitar-related Techniques workshops on how to mike-up a guitar cab, and such-like.

You will find all of these gathered below and on subsequent screen pages. Use the sidebar Filters and grey buttons above to find the content you are most interested in.
