Electro Harmonix B9 Organ Machine Pedal
The Electro-Harmonix B9 Organ Machine is quite a powerful tool indeed. The days of hunting for or learning to become a organ/keyboard player are now over thanks to the geniuses down at EHX. With the B9, if you can play guitar?...you can play keys! The B9 offers up finely tuned, legendary organ sounds (based on classic Hammond organs) in a compact package that would be a powerful part of any band's arsenal both in the studio or live.
EHX have created 9 preset organ types, hence the name B9, that are visible on the right hand side of the device all with their own position switches for quick and easy access.
Each organ preset types can be controlled in terms of dynamics with two simple main volume knobs. One for the volume of the organ preset in use its self and the other for your instruments dry unaltered signal volume. This set up allows a mix of the instrument and organ which can produce lush layers with ease.
The tweakability of the preset effects themselves originate from the remaining Mod and Click knobs. The Mod control essentially is your speed control for the modulation that is paired with the organ preset. This pairing means that the Mod produced depends on what preset is selected at any given time. The Click knob is key to the type of organ sound being generated by the B9 as this simulates the harmonic percussion effect itself.
Close your eyes and even the most accomplished and skilled musicians around would simply not be able to tell this isn't a real organ! It's THAT good.
