There has been some interesting discussions about the Electro-Harmonix Ravish Sitar since the videos starting hitting the web after NAMM this year. Basically, EHX has put together a pedal that will convert your standard guitar signal and make it sound like a sitar. It’s definitely not for everyone, but if you’ve been in search of that sitar tone, this pedal is for you!
I’m curious if any of you were able to make sitar-esque tones with a combination of a HOG and other pedals? Let me know!
Here is the official description of the Electro-Harmonix Ravish Sitar:
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. 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.
