In an industry dominated by right-footed players and right-footed gear, EHX felt it was important to develop a pedal specifically for the legions of left-footed players worldwide.
Notable left-hand guitarists include Jimi Hendrix, Paul McCartney, Kurt Cobain, Tony Iommi, Joe Strummer, Dick Dale, and Albert King.
Speaking about the launch, Mike Matthews, Electro-Harmonix’s founder and CEO, said: “This pedal will not only improve the overall tone of left-footed guitarists, it is also the perfect pedal for the right-footed player’s weaker left foot. A left-footed guitarist finally has the benefits that a right-footed player has always had with the Big Muff and EHX pedals.”
The Bad Stone Phase Shifter made history as the first six-stage phaser with an adjustable feedback control and a manual mode that actually lets you freeze the phase sweep. Now EHX has re-issued the classic pedal in a modern package. Watch the incredibly soulful sounding Bad Stone in action. This demo includes a brief interview with EHX Founder, Mike Matthews, talking about phase shifting!

Our new EHX 9Volt Battery is the classic carbon zinc type that has a higher internal resistance than an alkaline battery. This reduces circuit loading, especially in vintage effects pedals, to provide the best tone and dynamics.
Our new EH Strings allow you to capture every nuance of your playing style with lightning fast playability. Made of a pure nickel wrap with a specially-selected stainless steel, these sweet-sounding round wounds are truly like no other strings you've played. Not only do they last longer and stay in tune longer, but we think they're the best sounding strings ever made. Available in 9s, 10s and 11s.
