Pioneering new pedal transforms the sound of guitar or keyboard into a classic electric organ.
EHX HQ, New York, NY, June 18, 2014–With nine
finely-tuned presets emulating the legendary organs of the ‘60s and
beyond, the B9 Organ Machine delivers definitive tonewheel and combo
The B9’s layout is straight forward and intuitive. A
nine-position switch allows the player to select among different popular
organ types. The Organ volume knob controls the overall volume of the
Organ preset while Dry volume controls the volume of the untreated
instrument level at the Organ Output jack. This enables a player to mix
the sound of their original instrument with the organ to create lush
layers, or mute it entirely.
A Mod control adjusts the modulation speed. The type of
modulation provided is contingent on the preset and matched to it. A
Click control was designed to simulate the harmonic percussion effect
that is a sonic signature of many classic organs. For maximum
authenticity, the click is added to the very first note or chord played
and only retriggers when current notes have been released and their
amplitude falls below a threshold.
With the B9 Organ Machine, EHX’s goal was to create an
affordable, rugged and easy to use pedal that would put undeniable organ
sound at a musician’s fingertips. Check out the demo
