“EHX offers a practical solution for players looking to add some synth sounds and a little orchestra grandeur to the pedalboard”
“The String9 String Ensemble is a guitar synth pedal that, as part of Electro-Harmonix’s 9 Series, assumes a form that should by now be familiar. As the name suggests, it packs nine different modes onto one pedal, each selected via rotary dial, and presents a reasonably compact and affordable way of turning your electric guitar sound into something else entirely – principally, strings and orchestration – without the need for any modding.
The String9 sounds so good you might consider whether you need the keyboard player after all. It offers cool string sounds, presents them practically, and while it won’t be an everyday pedal for many players, it is an inspiring tool for seeking out new sounds.”
