Created by the brilliant designer, Bob Bednarz (a descendant of Copernicus), the RTG Random Tone Generator takes you on a journey of sonic serendipity. Used in solo mode or with other EHX effects, the RTG’s soundscapes capture the beauty of the unexpected.

This pedal was conceived of and designed by EHX from globally sourced components. Every EHX pedal goes through a stringent testing process by musicians and technicians in NYC before packing.
