    What is your opinion of this product?
    Once again, EH has a home run. The whole "9" series is setting a new standard for guitar synths. Not only are the sounds perfect emulations of the synths they represent, but the interaction with the guitar is new and different from a typical GR-55 or similar guitar synth. These devices behave differently if you're playing chords from playing single notes. So there's a level of surprise that comes into play as you learn it's response. And the subtle variations that "control 1 & 2" offer give each of the 9 voices individuality. These things go beyond making sounds to being an inspiration to new compositions... Rugged and dependable. All I can say is: "MORE, PLEASE!"

    WOW! Very cool!
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I love the EHX Mel9. It's amazing! It takes some time to play with it and learn how use it to create a realistic instrument sound but it will. I love the cello sound. Great for "Stairway to heaven" and "House of the rising sun". I wish EHX would have included just one organ simulation on the Mel9,but they didn't. Guess I will have to buy a B9 or C9. I would definitely recommend buying the Mel9, it works well, and will allow you to create a multitude new sounds from your guitar, bass,or keyboard.
