EHX's rich history is marked by many avant-garde pedals, but two of the most distinctive are the Super Space Drum and the Crash Pad. Electro-Harmonix is bringing back both analog drum synthesizers using their original circuits, but packaged in a modern format. The reissued Super Space Drum and Crash Pad are faithful to the sound and vibe of the vintage pedals while featuring fresh updates.

Super Space Drum
A faithful reissue of the cult-classic released in 1979, the Super Space Drum uses analog synthesis techniques to create mind-blowing sounds ranging from deep kicks to high toms to sci-fi drums. Trigger it from the built-in pushbutton or an external (non-MIDI) electronic drum pad. Pass external sounds through the gated amplifier via the aux input. The Super Space Drum lets you create, control and manipulate a stunning array of synthesized sounds.

Crash Pad
Like the original from 1980, the new Crash Pad can create an array of drum sounds and other-worldly oscillation sweeps, as well as process external sounds thru its resonant filter. Plus, it’s been updated to respond to expression pedal/CV input for external control over the filter in real-time.

Electro-Harmonix has unveiled the new Lester G and Lester K Stereo Rotary Speaker Emulators.

Lester G
There's nothing like the sound of a Leslie® rotary speaker cabinet on guitar. That's why legendary players like Jimi Hendrix, George Harrison, Eric Clapton and others have relied on the iconic effect. Now, for those looking to get that unmistakable sound with the convenience of a pedal, EHX introduces the Lester G: ultimate stereo rotary speaker emulator for guitar.

Don't miss Bill Ruppert's jaw-dropping video featuring the new Lester G.

Lester K
We're also pleased to introduce the Lester K stereo rotary speaker emulator designed for organ-type keyboards. The K doesn't include all the Lester G's features like a built-in compressor, but for guitarists who already own a compression pedal, it kicks butt! Watch guitarist Jon Skibic put the Lester K thru its paces.

Leslie® is a registered trademark of Suzuki Musical Instrument Manufacturing.
