Blend your dry signal to create beautiful layers. This pedal can also be used with keyboards.

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix C9 Organ Machine Guitar Effects Pedal:

    This is by far the best pedal i ever bought, sounds so much like a real organ, you can get so many sounds from it but you have to think like a keys player and not a guitar player, no shaking the strings or bending, you can go straight thru the pedal or thru an amp to beef it up, amazingly great lil device, i love it

      Comments about Electro-Harmonix C9 Organ Machine Guitar Effects Pedal:

      I had tested the EH B9 Organ pedal and was impressed, but not quite enough to buy it. The C9, however, is another animal altogether. I've run it with an assortment of single-coil and humbucking-equipped guitars through small combos, a modern bass combo (essentially like a full-range keyboard amp) and large guitar amps and it is amazingly consistent. Each patch sounds eerily like the real organ it's modeling; I especially like the variable "click" that emulates old, worn Hammond key switches. It takes a different way of thinking - if you use it playing like a "guitar player" it sounds like an "effect". Think like a keyboard player - playing moving bass lines with chords, sustained pads and organ "stabs" and you'll sound like an actual organ player. I wish it was slightly smaller (although it's just a bit larger than a typical EH Nano or Boss pedal - not as large as many EH pedals) and that it had a Leslie effect with the ability to hook up an external speed controller - but I have several Leslie pedals and a Leslie cab, so it's not a deal killer. Very well built, very low power draw (although an external supply is required, it's a standard 9v/tip negative type - and I never use batteries anyway). I have a couple of guitar synth and recording patch systems that include organ patches, and none come remotely close to this pedal. Highly recommended *if* you can play "outside the lines" ("think" organ") and NOT just play guitar through it.

        Comments about Electro-Harmonix C9 Organ Machine Guitar Effects Pedal:

        This thing works great but you need to be on a Clean Channel or a clean amp. First in signal chain. If you use any pedal before it makes it harder to use.
        You also need to think like a KEYBOARD PLAYER! You cant Shred with this pedal.
        My first 15 min I was playing some STYX/Blue collar man, Santana/Black Magic woman.
        Patience and you will be awarded.

          Comments about Electro-Harmonix C9 Organ Machine Guitar Effects Pedal:

          I was eager to get this pedal because my band does cover songs that some songs need keyboard to do justice.
          Although this unit provides some awesome keyboard/organ sounds you just cant play piano songs like you would hope. Somethings you can mimic but the organ sounds come mainly from holding a chord or note. My advice is to try one out at the store to understand it's limitations. It's great when you are just doing Chords but not practical for keyboard solo or lead.

              • playing on the beach!

              Comments about Electro-Harmonix C9 Organ Machine Guitar Effects Pedal:

              I usually play on beach with friends, about a 20 minute carry on back, along with guitar and Mini Mustang or Passport mini amp. Every ounce counts when get older. No qualms about putting this in bag: seems everyone has guitar but never seen friend bring an organ. This does it, and does it very well. Great range of tones (even Telstar if you dial back both adjustment knobs, get decent Farfissa sound). Can nail Strawberry Fields opening. Do have to adjust playing technique a bit: skip the bends and all that flash stuff organs can't do, and can't really with this either. I especially like the 2 outs: dry (guitar) and organ (can set guitar & organ mix). Passport mini has 2 channels, so organ goes to one & guitar can go to any of the presets without messing up organ "pure" tones. If I use standard amp, run organ into pandora and then aux input. Oh, and I have a couple gits with stereo output (pups and fishman under bridge) which allows on guitar volume control of organ... I put together my own external 9v power battery pack and that seems to work fine. Very glad I sprung for this. Do get some amazed looks from friends when I kick this in & they hear for first (or third) time

                Comments about Electro-Harmonix C9 Organ Machine Guitar Effects Pedal:

                I'm overwhelmingly impressed with the C9. I use it primarily as a "background" mix with chords, but I love the way it sounds with a solo. It really adds an extra umph to my sound that I'm in love with. This pedal has been so amazing to me, that I have been watching all the 9 series pedals coming from EHX and creating a section on my pedal boaRd for the ones I want, so far it's this guy and the Mel9 with a soon to come Key9. All in all, it seems pricey, but the quality of this pedal is exactly what you're paying for, not the name.
