Electro-Harmonix

In the world of guitar effects pedals, there is no brand more iconic than Electro-Harmonix. The fact that they’ve managed to stay ahead of the curve over the decades is a testament to their mastery of all things stomp-box. We are proud to announce that Midwood has recently become an EHX dealer, and look forward to displaying some of our favorite units in the showroom.

 

When the electronic transistor became available, inventors scrambled to cram studio effects into small footprints. The 1962 Maestro Fuzz Tone pedal introduced the world to the potential of pedal fueled distortion (inspired by faulty amplifier valves). The Rolling Stones used a fuzz box on “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction”, and Jimi Hendrix used an octave fuzz called the Octavia designed by Roger Mayer on numerous tracks. New York IBM employee, Mike Matthews, wanted in on the action, and began building fuzz units for the Guild Guitar Company branded “Foxy Lady” (after the Hendrix tune). In 1969, Matthews teamed up with the aforementioned Roger Mayer to design the LPB-1 (linear power booster), followed by the Bass and Treble boosters.

 

During the 70s, EHX released a greatest hits of effects that included the Electric Mistress, Memory Man, and Small Stone (a flanger, delay, and phase, respectively). They even designed the first pedal-based guitar synthesizer! Their most famous pedal, however, was the Big Muff. This thick, swampy fuzz box has been immortalized on countless recordings and has helped shape the aesthetic texture of hard rock and heavy metal. It’s hard to think of a more influential pedal.

 

Now well into the 21st century, EHX continues to release refined versions of their classic pedals, along with hybrids, and totally new innovations. From their Ravish Sitar (which emulates the droning Indian string instrument) to the Pitchfork polyphonic pitch shifter, they are constantly exploring new ideas and designs. Give us a call or stop by and add an Electro Harmonix pedal to your rig today.
