Wikipedia recognizes him as “one of the most important figures in the development of modern electric musical instruments and recording techniques.” Indeed, Les Paul, invented reverb, sound-on-sound and multi-track recording. On a mission to create “a radical new sound,” the multi-talented guitarist developed not only new ways of—and new equipment for—recording music but also new instruments.
