Effectology, Vol. 1: Electric Guitar plays Blues Harmonica

Posted 6/2/2009
Welcome to Electro-Harmonix's new "Effectology" series. Over the next several months we're going to play a remarkable collection of EHX-assisted sounds, and explain how they were made.

In the first episode, effect pedal wizard and Chicago studio musician Bill Ruppert transforms his regular electric guitar into a blues harmonica (pedals used: HOG, Micro Synthesizer, Wiggler, Holiest Grail).

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

The EHX Effectology series was originally inspired by Bill's recreation of the synth intro to The Who's "Won't Get Fooled Again" (see here). Stay tuned, more Effectology episodes coming soon!

Our new EHX Strings Electro-Harmonix electric guitar strings are custom-designed to our specifications and made in the USA by a premiere string manufacturer. Each wound string is precision wrapped with round nickel-plated steel onto a high carbon, hexagon-shaped steel core. The plain strings are made from the same high carbon steel as the hex cores. The high quality steel and computer controlled winding process results in strings that intonate accurately, are better at staying in tune and vibrate evenly for maximum sustain.
