EHX FLASHBACK: 1977 Echoflanger

Posted 9/14/2011


The year is 1977

The New York Yankees win the World Series (again).

In popular music, Queen’s anthem, “Bohemian Rhapsody,” is all over the airwaves, while the Eagles are living it up at “Hotel California” and Jimmy Buffet is searching for his lost shaker of salt (in “Margaritaville”).

Orlando Bloom, Shakira, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Liv Tyler, and Ludacris all come into the world.

Meanwhile, in downtown Manhattan, Mike Matthews and the EHX team are busy creating pedals like this Echoflanger, which was touted in the company’s advertising.
