Crash Pad

DESCRIPTION

EHX’s rich history was marked by many revolutionary pedals but one of our most distinctive lines was a group of analog drum synthesizers that included the Crash Pad.

Like the original from 1980, the EHX Crash Pad Electric Crash Drum can create an array of drum sounds and other-worldly oscillation sweeps, as well as process external sounds thru its resonant filter. Plus, it’s been updated to respond to expression pedal/CV input for external control over the filter in real-time.

  • Creates a range of percussive sounds from cymbals, snares and hi hats to oscillation sweeps
  • Triggers via the on-board pushbutton, an external (non-MIDI) drum pad and most clock generators
  • Process external sounds thru the resonant filter + EXP/CV input for real-time filter control
  • Rugged, die-cast chassis
  • Works great with the EHX Clockworks Rhythm Generator/Synthesizer, 8 Step Program Analog Expression/CV Sequencer and other similar devices
  • Power adapter included
