Overview

The polyphonic MEL9 uses the same extraordinary technology as the B9, C9 and KEY9 to transform your axe and resurrect the sound of vintage tape-based keyboards. It pays homage to nine of the coolest Mellotron® sounds: Orchestra, Cello, Strings, Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone, Brass, Low Choir and High Choir. It works on guitar without modifications, special pickups or MIDI implementation and tracks bends, slides, even whammy dive bombs!
You can also put it to work with your bass down to the open A string as well as keyboards. The MEL9 includes independent Effect and Dry volume controls so you can create the perfect mix at the Effects output with a Dry Output jack to output your input signal at unity gain. The Attack control sets the volume swell speed. As it’s turned clockwise the notes fade in more gradually, while the Sustain control adjusts the release time after a sound is stopped. As it’s turned clockwise, the fade out time increase

      It won't take long to get used to this pedal and once you do, creating an awesome track or using it in a live environment is very rewarding. I'm considering getting another one from the family.

              I am a hobbiest guitar player and plan to do some
              Studio recording. The mel9 will be a great asset
              To what I can do.

              The MEL9 makes me a multi-instrumentalist with one pedal

              Comments about MEL9 Tape Replay Machine Guitar Effects Pedal:

              This pedal allows me to shift from straight guitar to organ, flute, orchestral sounds, and more then back to guitar for a more varied take on my music. I was sold on the YouTube demos and really pleased with the MEL9 when I received it.

              Comments about Electro-Harmonix MEL9 Tape Replay Machine Guitar Effects Pedal:

              Amazing pedal ... met all my expectations. I had purchased the C-9 and am happy with it after trying the B-9 and a Superego which I was not thrilled with ... with that said, the Mel-9 is an incredible compliment to the C-9 when run together or used independently. I did add a Mooer Spark Echo after (which adds reverb + delay)
              The Mel-9 does track better that the C-9.

              I use this item for background sound-strings and brass-for my guitar lead playing. The cello and flute tones I use for alternate choruses to the guitar lead. I'm working on using the other settings but I'm sure they'll be really useful, too. One great gadget!
