Ravish

DESCRIPTION

Very few instruments offer as much harmonic and dynamic flexibility as a sitar. Electro-Harmonix has streamlined the essence of the sitar into a compact enclosure that offers a polyphonic lead voice and tunable sympathetic string drones that dynamically react to your playing. With the EHX Ravish Sitar Emulator, you can create your own custom scales for the sympathetic strings while you set the decay time for the lead voice.

Two expression pedal inputs allow you to bend the pitch of the lead voice and control the volume of the sympathetic strings simultaneously. These unique controls offer the player the ability to program the Ravish to become a totally unique and organic instrument unto itself.

The Ravish is a truly new design with the flexibility to be a crossover tonal wonder.

  • Transform your electric guitar into a sitar
  • Lead sitar voice tracks your notes polyphonically with a wide range of tonal possibilities
  • Selectable decay speed for the Lead voice
  • Sympathetic string drone simulation with a wide tonal range
  • Selectable keys and scales including major, minor and exotic provided for the Sympathetic strings
  • Power adapter included
