Electro-Harmonix is coming out with a handful of new products that look to be useful, well thought out and all with unique features that aren’t found elsewhere. Here’s a quick summary.
Electro-Harmonix 44 Magnum Power Amp – a follow-up to the EHX 22 Caliber Power Amp, the 44 Magnum provides 44 watts of power into either 8 or 16 ohms and literally fits in the palm of your hand. It’s the ultimate in portability. Price: $144.75 ETA: Mid-late July
Electro-Harmonix Freeze Sound Retainer Infinite Sustain pedal - out of all five of the new products EHX is releasing this summer, the Freeze is the one I’m most excited about. It’s a fairly simple concept that’s such a great idea I don’t know why something like this hasn’t been released already. The Freeze allows you to capture any momentary sound, chord, note, etc. that’s played into it and hold that note indefinitely. You can tap the switch again to “recapture” a new sound. As EHX says, “it’s like adding another musician to your band.” Price: $118.50 ETA: Late June
Electro-Harmonix Germanium 4 Big Muff Pi Overdrive / Distortion – this takes some of the classic elements of the Big Muff Pi and adds some cool new features. It’s a dual pedal – one overdrive channel and one distortion channel. Each channel utilizes two germanium chips and each channel can be used by itself, or they can be stacked together for even more tonal possibilities (using all 4 germanium chips together). It also uses a control similar to the EHX Germanium OD – a Volts control that controls the amount of power going to the pedal. A control that makes big changes in the overall sound of the pedal. Price: $99.75 ETA: Late June
Electro-Harmonix Headphone Amp personal practice amplifier – this is a product simliar to other products on the market, but in an even more compact size than just about any comparable product out there. It runs on a single 9v battery and allows you to practice anywhere you can bring a guitar! Price: $45 ETA: Late June
Electro-Harmonix Neo Clone Analog Chorus – The Neo Clone is the same circuit as the classic Small Clone, but in a Nano sized box. It’s also similar to the Nano Clone, but the Neo Clone offers an added Depth switch which offers more tonal possibilities. If you want that classic Chorus tone without the classic Chorus size, the Neo Clone is a great option. Price: $66.75 ETA: Late June
All of these look to be great products that will fit a lot of uses and specific needs. If you’ve got questions on any of these please drop an email or give us a call (218.260.4176).
