I recently saw a demo of the Electro-Harmonix Ravish Sitar by WeRock TV in Japan. I thought this demo was pretty cool, they demonstrated some classic/traditional Sitar sounds but also included an atmospheric vibe as well. Also, the demo includes tab, so those of you that are thinking of getting a sitar intro but have no idea on what is a good scale, etc., this might be quite handy.
The Electro-Harmonix Ravish Sitar is definitely a ‘hot’ pedal in 2011/2012. Seems to have a lot of interest. Any of you that own it currently, would love to hear your thoughts and opinions. My biggest question about this pedal, are there uses for it beyond the sitar simulation? The demo below seems to have answered that question in the 3rd piece where it sounds very keyboard-like. I think it would be cool to hear some interesting applications of this pedal.
Currently, there is a bundle deal on the Electro-Harmonix Ravish Sitar at Amazon, for $239.25 you get the Ravish Sitar plus 2 free Struckture 6″ patch cables, 1 10′ Struckture instrument cable and 1 18.6′ instrument cable. Normally the Ravish by itself if $239.25, so to get some bonus items is a nice plus!
