1. The reverb pedals at the begging of Kevin Parker’s chain are key inTame Impala’s sound/tone. I like how Kevin Parker went against traditional pedal order. That gives the guitar a more expanded, spacey and psychedelic sound and tone in the songs. This is also are complemented by an analog delay near the end of the chain.

    The rest of effects fuzz, wah, phaser, flanger, filters, tremolo, etc. Deserve another post of its own.

    The point is to not be afraid of the “PEDAL POLICE” and try new stuff.
