Electric Guitar Accessories

If you have an electric guitar, there are some other things that you'll need to get the best sound out of your instrument. You could play it acoustically, but that's not how you imagined your instrument to sound when you bought it. At the very least, you surely bought an amplifier and the necessary cables to get that powerful sound out of the amp. Nothing beats it.

Besides your amp and cables, there are other accessories out there that can help keep your guitar safe, put effects on your sound and let you get more creative.

Get the Most out of Your Electric Guitar

No matter what instrument you play, you want to do everything you can to get the best sound out. Here are some electric guitar accessories to help you get the most out of your instrument:

  •  Cases and stands: Help keep your guitar from getting damaged, whether you're storing it at home or are transporting it from one place to another. Your guitar was an investment — you should do what you can to enjoy your investment for as long as you can.
  • Strings: You should always have at least one set of extra strings. If you get a broken string in a pinch, you wouldn't want to find yourself without a backup. There are lots of different types of strings, with each type giving a different tone to your instrument.
  • Straps: How many electric guitarists do you see playing sitting down? Not many. When you can stand up, you have a greater range of motion, letting you have way more fun while you're playing, especially if you're performing a live show.
  • Metronomes and tuners: A high-quality tuner allows you to quickly and effectively get your guitar back in tune if it's not sounding its best. It can also help you train your ear. When you're working on a tricky melody or need help getting a song up to speed, use a metronome. These accessories are relatively inexpensive, but they're super helpful.
  • Effects pedals and pedalboards: Once you've been playing for a while, you may want to start experimenting with your sound. There are tons of different effects pedals, from overdrive to chorus, that will add unique effects to your sound. A pedalboard helps keep your pedals in order.
