Electro-Harmonix Effectology, Vol.21 “Turn your guitar into a string synth and Irish tin whistle”

Posted 3/17/2011



St. Paddy’s Day 2011

Bill Ruppert breathes in the dew of a fine morning in old Eire. With a sly wink and a nod, Bill recreates the mystery of the old Ireland using a little Elvin magic and the power of EHX pedals. 
Learn the secrets of creating lush string synthesizers and Irish tin whistles, using just a regular guitar and Electro-Harmonix effect pedals.

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

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.
