A few weeks back, we opened the EHX Merch Shop
. EHX is all about the freedom to experiment with colorful sounds, and the Merch Shop follows in that tradition by giving you the freedom to fully custom-design your own shirt. So we asked for your pictures, and you didn't let us down! For example, here's Wesley Eaves' custom-designed Germanium OD
shirt (belt buckle not included):
Dig this intense performance of ZZ Top's "Blue Jeans Blues" by Portuguese trio Budda Power Blues. For the tremolo effect, Budda is playing through an EHX Stereo Pulsar
, he reports: "I normaly use the first knob at 1 or 2 o'clock, the shape of the wave at about 10 o'clock, and I use different settings for the speed. I tend to prefer the triangular wave shape."
To further set the mood, here's a picture of ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons with EHX's Suzi Matthews (several of you previously spotted Suzi in this video tour of the EHX mothership):
Electro-Harmonix is pleased to announce what is sure to become an instant EHX classic: the Deluxe Stereo Micro Little Big PolyMuff with Wicker and Hazarai Plus. The DSMLBPMWHP combines our legendary discrete Input and Output jacks, along with an industry first: the option to bypass the True Bypass, so you can now finally explore the lush sonic frontiers of False Bypass.
Be sure to demo the DSMLBPMWHP today -- April 1 -- while supplies last!
EHX is pleased to announce that the Holy Grail Reverb
is now available in our tough and compact diecast chassis.
We recently discovered this hand-sewn Big Muff Pi cushion
by German artist/maker Gwendolin Tñ¤gert. It immediately struck us as funny and wonderful. (Translated from the German: "Wouldn't you love to hug a Big Muff all the time? Now it is possible! A super cute large stuffed cushion in the form of the world famous guitar effects pedal BIG MUFF!")
However, there was a touchy complication: the Big Muff Pi is a registered trademark, and if we discover unauthorized uses of our trademarks, we're legally obligated to do something about it (we have no choice about that).
We're all too familiar with the endless lawsuits suffocating the world of music, and so we decided to do something different. Instead of threats, demands, and legal letters, we contacted Gwendolin, told her we loved her work, and offered a formal license in exchange for an option to purchase them at discount. So, rather than a new enemy we now have a new friend, and a beautiful Big Fluff Pi. Take that as a lesson, music-industrial complex!
