The Guitar FX Direct team have changed the website again! to make it faster, easier to use and more responsive
With thanks to Littlewitch Media for the design and build and to Sycamore Communications for ongoing help with all things marketing and PR and keeping up with Social!
At Guitar FX Direct, we’re all about making the world’s best guitar pedals more accessible across the UK and Europe. That’s why we’ve given our site a complete overhaul, with all kinds of new features to help you find the right guitar effects pedals for you.
Read on to see what’s changed and how you can get a celebratory 10% discount…
Fast and responsive
There’s nothing worse than a sluggish website. That’s especially the case when you’re craving distortion, delay and fuzz from a new guitar effects pedal. Our new site is much quicker than the previous model, with page speed scores way above what they were previously.
On top of that, we’ve made sure the new site is completely mobile responsive. While the old site had a different appearance and experience on mobile and desktop, the new site delivers the same great experience across different devices. So, you can search for the unique sounds you want whether you’re at home on your laptop or on the go with your phone.
Slicker look and layout
Of course, the first thing you’ll notice on the new site is its slick new appearance. The site is complete with a navigation bar at the top of the page, which becomes an easy-to-use hamburger menu in smaller windows or mobile devices. That separates products into guitar effects, bass effects, strings, accessories and guitars – we’ll get to that soon.
Clicking through to any of the sections in the menu will bring up a selection of relevant products, depending on what you’re searching for. You can then narrow down your search using filters like brand, effect type, guitar type and price. There are also a range of options when it comes to sorting the products such as price, age, title and relevance.
More products and the same great service
As mentioned earlier, we’ve got far more products now too. Together with the new site, we’ve added a selection of guitar strings, straps and other accessories to complement our range of guitar effects pedals. We’ll also be adding more guitars to the site as they arrive at our new brick-and-mortar store on the Isle of Man. (Please note that since this article was written, we have move to an online only store based in UK, focused on pedals).
The best bit? We still pride ourselves on a personal service. When you buy with Guitar FX, on top of the new, glossy site, you still deal with the same team of guitar lovers. Delivery is available across Europe and free in the UK, we answer emails within 24 hours and allow customers to return any orders they’re not 100% happy with.
