Oh, so *that's* why it's called a stompbox. Somehow I feel that sentence was in there just for me---thanks!

(A little bit, yes. So now you know.)

Actually, re-reading this, I feel kind of weird about championing garish, unrestrained effect abuse. After all, one of my pet peeves at work are video/graphic producers who feel the need to put every single animation/blending effect into their work, until it looks like Fox News threw up onscreen.
I reconcile the two mainly through the belief that rock music, as an integral part of the genre, relies on excess. And also that while I love outlandish effects, I try not to use all of them at the same time. They have a place.
