    Comments about Electro-Harmonix KEY9 Electric Piano Machine Guitar Pedal:

    Not very impressed with this pedal. I spent about 4 weeks with it before returning. You really need to tweak your guitar settings and I even ran straight into a HiZ input to avoid the amp affecting the sound effects at all. Only setting 3 and 8 seem to work very well. Each sound really requires you to tweak the two settings, so for live use not very easy. Just not happy with it as I couldn't get very realistic piano sounds out of it. The organ is actually one of the best sounds and not even what this pedal is made for. I would not recommend this pedal to anyone expecting to have it sound great right out of the box. Takes a lot of work to get it to sound good.

    OK, but not great

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix KEY9 Electric Piano Machine Guitar Pedal:

    Overall after a handful of uses, it's a nice little gimmick, but lacks the real sound of a Rhodes that they claim it has. Will probably return it.

    Try it with your setup before you buy

    By Bill

    from Merced, Ca

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix KEY9 Electric Piano Machine Guitar Pedal:

    I found it a bit difficult to coax a believable keyboard sound out, though it's obviously possible as you can witness by watching the EHX demo video. I ended up liking it for "Dynamo" (Fender Rhodes) sound. I mix that sound 50/50 with the straight guitar tone.

    EHX notes that you are likely to get a better sound performance using the bridge pickup, but I need to use the neck pickup to get that fat jazz sound for most of what I play.

    I had thoughts of returning it, but finally decided to keep it once I dialed in the "Dynamo" (Fender Rhodes) sound.

    I believe this to be a device whose performance would be very Rig, Pickup, and style dependent.

        This pedal works well for my needs. I use it mostly for rhythm stuff. It takes good technique to make it sound piano like. I only find 2 of the settings usable but again, it works for me.

          Comments about Electro-Harmonix KEY9 Electric Piano Machine Guitar Pedal:

          So I got the Synth9 first. Pretty cool, so I got the C9. Love it. So I'm thinking the Key9 will be just as cool.
          I was very disappointed. Out of 9 options I only found 2-3 usable. The mallets and steel drums were usable. But I was more interested in the Keyboard type sounds and I just didn't hear it. Like it was muffled or something or it sounded more like a guitar with a chorus.( Where is my Riders On The Storm?) Maybe I got a bad one because I like the other two in series. Either way its going back. Just not for me.
