EHX FLASHBACK: 1979 Micro-Synthesizer

Posted 11/1/2010

1979, a first class U.S. postage stamp costs 15 cents, a loaf of bread 43 cents and a gallon of gas 86 cents. Across the pond, Margaret Thatcher becomes the first woman ever to be elected Prime Minister of the U.K.

Closer to home, another Brit, Sid Vicious, dies of a heroin overdose while on trial for the murder of his girlfriend. Nancy Spungen succumbed to a single stab wound. Her body was found in their room at the Chelsea Hotel, which was actually located up the block from Electro-Harmonix at 222 West 23rd Street in NYC. Meanwhile, Mike Matthews and the boys down at 27 West 23td Street, were busy getting the word out on the revolutionary Micro-Synthesizer with this ad.

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.
