    • 9 presets that were created to emulate many of the most popular synthesizer sounds ever
    • Works on guitar or bass without modifications, special pickups or MIDI implementation
    • The SYNTH9’s usable tracking range extends up to about the 23rd fret on the high-E string of a standard guitar and down to the open A-string on a bass guitar
    • Use the SYNTH9 with a B9 or C9 Organ Machine as well as the KEY9 Electric Piano Machine and MEL9 Tape Replay Machine to create your own mega-keyboard setup 
    The SYNTH9 is also super easy to use with DRY volume, SYNTH volume, CTRL1 and CTRL2 knobs that provide precise control over each preset’s parameters.

    If you dig the kind of classic synth sounds made famous on recordings by groups like ELP, EVH, Kraftwerk, Joy Division, P-Funk, Peter Gabriel and more, we think you’ll love the SYNTH9.

    Tips on Getting Optimum Performance from the SYNTH9
      1. The SYNTH9 is generally best used as the first pedal in an effects chain. Place modulation, delay, and reverb effects after the SYNTH9. The unit will not perform well if placed in the effects loop of a guitar amp.

      2. For optimal playability, set the guitar’s pickup selector to the bridge pickup and turn the volume knob all the way up (“10”).

      3. Avoid placing a distortion or overdrive in front of the SYNTH9, which could muddy up the input signal and cause the tracking to be unstable. If you want to add overdrive or distortion, place it after the SYNTH9.

      4. The SYNTH9 has a built in compressor that is active on the synth sounds at all times. We recommend you do not insert another compressor into your signal chain while the SYNTH9 is in effect mode.

    What is your opinion of this product?
    I have owned the MEL 9 for some time now and have grown to rely upon it. I finally purchased the SYNTH 9 and WOW what fun to play. Standalone it sounds fantastic; run it through several other pedals/boxes and look-out! This is one pedal you won't regret buying!

    Synth? Nein!
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I have been wanting to put my hands (feet) on one of these for a while. I was excited to get it, but I had to exchange the pedal for a new one after I first got it, as it had some issues (no sound) when switched on until I cycled power on it. It also had terrible response times from the synth engine and some noise. AMS staff was super helpful and made it a very easy and convenient experience. I got a brand new pedal within 3 days, which works much better. I do like the working pedal. The different synth voices are cool and the tonal controls do give some interesting options, although there are a few that only sound good in the factory recommended settings, but it does the job that I got the pedal for. Also as most synth engine pedals, it does struggle with fast progression (32nds @ 100bpm+) and some notes will just not be audible. This is why I only give it 4 stars.

    Home Run!
    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!"
