Effectology, Vol. 26: Make your guitar sound like a Pink Floyd Synthesizer

Posted 11/5/2012



EHX EFFECTOLOGY
Guitar effects guru, Bill Ruppert, pushes the envelope (hard) of what is possible to achieve with “just” a guitar and a handful of EHX effects pedals. In this latest edition of Effectology Bill re-creates the synthesizers from the Pink Floyd classic “Shine On You Crazy Diamond.” Check it out. This really is one of those things you have to see and hear to believe!

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

These pedals were conceived of and designed by EHX from globally sourced components. Every EHX pedal goes through a stringent testing process by musicians and technicians in NYC before packing.
