Founded in October 1968 in New York City by keyboard player Mike Matthews and audio repairman Bill Berko, Electro-Harmonix were keen to put out a fuzz pedal following their surge in popularity after The Rolling Stones and Jimi Hendrix used this unique new sound on their hit records. Using their own custom circuit to create a bass-heavy sustain the EHX Big Muff Pi was born....the rest is history!
During the mid-1970s, Electro Harmonix had established itself as a pioneer and leading manufacturer of guitar effects pedals. Electro-Harmonix was the first company to introduce, manufacture, and market affordable state-of-the art "stomp-boxes" for guitarist and bassists, such as the first stomp-box flanger (Electric Mistress), the first analog delay with no moving parts (Memory Man), the first guitar synthesizer pedal (Micro Synthesizer) and even the first tube amp distortion simulator (Hot Tubes). Later in 1980, Electro-Harmonix also created one of the first digital delay and looper pedal (16-Second Digital Delay).
Since 2002 Electro Harmonix have innovated new pedals for their ever growing range while also ensuring all reissued effects remain as close as possible to the original vintage units. Today their smaller, Micro and Nano ranges offer a vast selection of some of the finest sound innovations available on the market. EHX have the pedal for you!
