Product Description

The polyphonic Electro-Harmonix MEL9 tape replay machine effects pedal uses the same extraordinary technology as the B9, C9 and KEY9 to transform your guitar and resurrect the sound of vintage tape-based keyboards! The polyphonic MEL9 has superior tracking; you can create single notes or chords with ease. The MEL9 will follow guitar bends, dive bombs, slurs, and any other guitar expression/performance techniques you can throw at it!

Electro-Harmonix MEL9 Tape Replay Machine Effects Pedal Features
  • Pays homage to nine vintage Mellotron sounds, all in polyphony!
  • Sounds include: Orchestra, Cello, Strings, Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone, Brass, Low Choir and High Choir
  • Works on guitar without any modifications, special pickups or MIDI implementation
  • Tracks and follows your technique on bends, slides, even whammy dive bombs!
  • Works with electronic keyboards featuring a 1/4" line output
  • Works with bass guitar down to the open-A string
  • Includes independent “Effect” and “Dry” volume controls so you can create
  • Dry Output jack outputs your input signal at unity gain
  • Adjust volume swell speed using the “Attack” control.
  • Adjust the release time after a sound is stopped using the “Sustain” control.
  • Includes standard Electro-Harmonix 9.6DC200mA PSU Power Adapter
Drawing from the analog sounds of the throwback Mellotron®, the MEL9 allows you to create lush chords and accurate leads from its nine incredible settings: Orchestra, Cello, Strings, Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone, Brass, and both Low and High Choir.

Adjusting the attack and sustain controls gives you smooth transitions between sounds and lets your tone ring free, even after letting off the strings. Two outputs allow you to blend effect and dry signals to create personalized mixtures these tones with your own guitar sound.

Not limited to just guitar, the Electro-Harmonix MEL9 can be used with electronic keyboards with a 1/4" output jack and bass guitars down to their open low-A string, giving you even more tonal options to choose from. Recreate vintage sound and expand your band’s presence with the color of an entire orchestra and choir channeled directly from your own instrument.

Includes standard Electro-Harmonix Power Adapter.

Product Review

Got this to get that mellotron sound without using midi/computer.. I run it through an old acetone organ & get exactly the sound I wanted! I was very skeptical at first.. & it did take some adjusting the organ sounds, best sound when doing no more then 3-4 notes at once.. more then that seems to lose some notes, etc. but for the backing sounds etc i use this for it fits perfect & is an all around great pedal! Love playing strawberry fields.. or other songs from bands like the kinks, the zombies.. etc, & Get the sound just like they had without having to shelf out $2,000+ for a mellotron!

Out of the Park...

Product Review

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!

Product Review

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.
