Clockworks Rhythm Generator/Synthesizer


Clockworks is a faithful reissue of the classic pedal made by Electro-Harmonix in the 1970s. It can be used as a master clock for sequencers and drum machines, and to trigger electronic percussion products like the EHX Crash Pad classic drum synth. Clockworks doesn’t create sound on its own. It generates pulses to trigger other devices and can set the tempo for a drum machine or sequencer like EHX’s 8 Step Program.

The original Electro-Harmonix CLOCKWORKS Rhythm Generator/Synthesizer circa 1978 has become something of a cult classic commanding upwards of £790 at online auctions. That's over $1250 at current exchange rates!

Techno geeks and tweakers love that CLOCKWORKS can be used as a master clock for sequencers and drum machines, and to trigger electronic percussion. It doesn't create sound on its own, but generates pulses to trigger other devices and can set the tempo for a drum machine or sequencer like EHX's 8 Step Program. Its four separate clock channels (driven from the same master clock) can connect up to four devices so creating polyrhythms is also easy.

EHX Founder and President, Mike Matthews, instructed his engineers to create a faithful reissue of the classic pedal, but in a modern die-cast package and that's what we have here, now available at a much more affordable MSRP of $293.73!
