A faithful reissue of the cult-classic released in 1979, the SSD 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.

Go for a spin on the Crash Pad and Super Space Drum. These newly reissued analog drum synths are faithful to the sound and vibe of the original 1970's pedals while featuring fresh updates.

Crash Pad
EHX’s rich history was marked by many revolutionary pedals but one of our most distinctive lines was a group of analog drum synthesizers that included the 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.

Drum expert, Phil O'Keefe, takes a look at the EHX Super Space Drum Analog Drum Synth and concludes, "this is a very fun little noisemaker!"

Read the entire review at Harmony Central and find out why "You'll be surprised by how many different sounds you can coax from an analog drum synth with just a basic oscillator, a gated volume amplifier and modulation."

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.
