If you play guitar and you want to take it to the next level, you have to get into pedals. It can be a little daunting since there are so many different kinds all with crazy names like EQ, compression, flanger, tremolo, etc. How can you know which will best match your playing style? You can either bumble into a guitar shop and figure it out or walk into the Stomp Box Exhibit at CMJ 2011. The event will be going down at the Living Room’s Googies Lounge and Ludlow Guitars on the Lower East Side on Friday, October 21, and Saturday, October 22, from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m.
 
Deli Mag and Delicious Audio are teaming to bring you the chance to try dozens of different effects pedals. They’ll have axes standing by, but feel free to bring your own. There’ll be products from MOOG, TC Electronic, Digitech and other makers of high-quality guitar pedals, some of which will be given away. Come try your hand, or rather, foot, at the pedals. Whether a newcomer to the world of pedals or a seasoned pro researching a new purchase, you’ll be able to tell all your friends you can play with your feet. Space being limited, we’d recommend RSVPing for a priority pass for this one.
