Man.. I’ve been reading more and more buzz about the Electro-Harmonix B9 Organ Machine pedal. It’s time for me to take a closer look. I think it’s great that Electro-Harmonix exploring replicating sounds of interesting instruments and apply that for guitar for creating whole new musical options, that go beyond just replicating the instrument. EHX’sÂ Ravish Sitar is a perfect example. Sure you could use this pedal for that sitar part, but you could also use it for crazy guitar leads that is completely unique.
So, the EHX B9 Organ Machine was designed to recreate some of the most classic organ sounds. You can select from 9 classic organ tones – Fat & Full, Jazz, Gospel, Classic Rock, Bottom End, Octaves, Cathedral, Continental and Bell Organ. Controls include ‘dry’ and ‘organ’ levels. Basically how you mix the guitar with the organ (via Organ and Dry outputs). ‘Mod’ will add modulation to the signal. ‘Click’ is an actual click to replicate the click percussion from B3 and C3 organs.

Enough tone wheel and combo organ inspiration to light your fire and cook up some green onions!
