Effectology, Vol. 3: Cello Concerto

Posted 6/29/2009
Welcome to the third installment of the EHX Effectology series. Today Bill Ruppert presents "Cello Concerto for Guitar and Effect Pedals" (pedals used: for the 'cello' it's just a HOG and Holiest Grail, and for the backing pads Bill also uses a Black Finger, POG, Stereo Polychorus, and Stereo Memory Man with Hazarai).

I especially liked how Bill used the HOG to pitch-shift his guitar down into the register of a cello. That plus the slow attack makes this one especially fun to try, and quite easy to reproduce.

Please note: Bill will be in the EHX Forums to discuss his sounds, settings, and process. We hope you join us there.
