News, trends and tips about pedals and pedalboards

At Aclam we like to learn new stuff related to our passion for music. Just like you, we browse the net searching for novelties, seeking answers to how a piece of gear works, reviews of new proposals from our favorite brands and professional tips from our praised guitar heroes. We are constantly collaborating with our endorsers and have great partners with years of expertise in the industry, mainly pedal and amp builders, who provide a fair amount of useful knowledge for our hungry minds.

So, this blog will feature tips, news, trends and other matters that may result helpful and, hopefully, enjoyable. From pedalboard setups to effects pedal components, we will try to suggest the best pedal order possible to make the most of your gear, explain the difference between true bypass and buffered effects, and much more!
