Electro Harmonix Ravish Sitar Effects Pedal Arriving Soon
The Electro Harmonix Ravish Sitar Effects Pedal is the latest in a long line on groundbreaking guitar effects pedals from the legendary New York effects manufacturer. Manufacturing their first effects unit, the ‘Axis Fuzz’, in 1969, Electro Harmonix ’s (sometimes written EHX) innovative and idiosyncratic design has, slightly ironically, become a template for boutique effects pedal manufacturers the world over (you only need to look at the army of Big Muff Pi style fuzz pedals now available for evidence…) And, offering to make your guitar sound like a sitar, the EHX Ravish Sitar is one of the most unique and innovative the company has ever produced.
Transform your guitar into a sitar!
The Electro Harmonics Ravish Sitar employs some very clever technology to simulate the sound of sitar. The pedal features a polyphonic lead voice, with sympathetic string ‘drones’. The ‘drone’ strings can be tuned to scales of the users choice, and, rather than being static, react dynamically to the user’s playing. And, for ultimate ease of use, Sympathetic keys can be chosen from the guitar itself.
To edit the tone of the Ravish Sitar, a range of controls are at your disposal. Decay speed can be changed on the lead sound, along with modulation control for drone notes. To add further to the EHX Ravish Sitar ‘s sonic flexibility, two expression pedal inputs allow lead note pitch to be bent at will, and drone note volume to be controlled. Up to nine presets can be saved and recalled. For flexibility in the studio, or more complex effects set-ups, the pedal features a main output for all voices, with a separate output for sympathetic drone sounds.
Ideal for sonic adventurers everywhere, the Electro Harmonics Ravish Sitar is due to arrive in stock next week, priced at £169.99. Call our stores or customer service team (01925 582420) to pre-order yours today. In the meantime, here’s a demonstration of what it can do…
