The Electro-Harmonix Ring Thing is a single sideband modulator, presenting state-of-the-art modulation control to allow the user to explore a new sonic world that's both familiar and inventive. Complex modulations with interactive parameters create any sound your mind can imagine. From metallic sweeps to subtle color changes to unique and limitless modulations, the Electro-Harmonix Ring Thing effects pedal will become your sonic dream machine.

Articulate pitch shifting, preset tuning, selectable waveforms and external control delivers sound designer mystery, with a Rock and Roll edge.

The EHX Ring Thing effect pedal has four selectable modes that use either frequency or pitch shift modulation: Ring Modulation, Side Modulation, Single Sideband-Upper Band, Single Sideband-Lower Band, and Pitch Shift. The ring modulator section builds upon the original EHX Frequency Analyzer, adding to it selectable carrier waveforms, sweepable filter, presets, and expression pedal control. Single-sideband modulation is a new effect based on ring modulation but with only one band present, making it a more harmonious effect. Finally, EHX added a powerful modulatable pitch shifter to this guitar pedal that can do detune effects, vibrato, chorus, transpose, or even whammy when you use an external expression pedal.

Some possible samples and settings you can create with the EHX Ring Thing:

Vibe-A-Tone: a control setting that produces a chorus/tremolo/vibrato effect
Baritone guitar: thanks to pristine polyphonic pitch shifting, you can transform a standard tuned guitar into a baritone guitar or a 6-string bass
Drop tuning with distortion: dropping a regularly tuned guitar down to B with the EHX Ring Thing and adding a distortion pedal afterwards produces a huge sound
Tremolo bar effects: adding an expression foot pedal to the Electro-Harmonix Ring Thing produces classic dive-bomb effects using any electric guitar
The Ring Thing guitar pedal set for two octaves above with an expression foot pedal produces contemporary pitch pedal effects
Tunable moving harmony: pressing the tune switch while holding a not automatically tunes the Ring Thing to your guitar
Ring modulator you can play musically: all parameters including the tuning can be stored in presets


  • Multi-wave selection for modulation and Ring Mod

Too complicated, and too hard to dial in decent sound.

By Chase

Comments about Electro-Harmonix Ring Thing Modulator Guitar Effects Pedal:

This pedal is very non musical, and did not perform to my expectations..The manual is no help, and i could not find one decent setting in the whole box...Very digital sounding octave effects, that made me cover my ears.(it will only take "paticular" expression pedals as well) I know ring modulators arent supposed to be musical, but i found no use in this box and sold it after a month.

Comments about Electro-Harmonix Ring Thing Modulator Guitar Effects Pedal:

Pretty awesome pedal overall. You can use it to get crazy metallic sounds but at the same time get lush tremolo and Univibe style phasing (think David Gilmour, Jimi Hendrix, and Robin Trower). In pitch shifting mode you can go anywhere from two octaves down to two octaves up with great tracking (very little glitching compared to a lot of pitch shifters out there). Pitch shifting mode also allows you to blend in your dry signal. You can also add modulation to your pitch-shifted signal (this is a really great feature if you've shifted your pitch one or two octaves up because you can add leslie-like modulation to create an organ like sound). You can also create interesting pitch vibrato sounds in pitch shift mode (but don't expect it to sound like a Boss VB-2). The preset mode is easy to use and allows you to save up to 9 settings. Here's the reasons I gave it 4 stars out of five: 1. EHX falsely markets this as a polyphonic pitch shifter. I would say it's polyphonic 95% of the time but certain chords (an open G major for example) will glitch a bit when the pitch is shifted. Much better than almost any other pitch shifters out there, but they should make a note that it's not 100% polyphonic. 2. The "tune" function is not polyphonic. It even creates glitch with signal notes. 3. The "tune" function takes away a lot of the tone the ring modulation creates, leaving you with a muddy sounding version of your dry signal. 4. Unlike the Moog MF-102, you can't create sweeps between the frequencies that the Ring Modulation creates. You can emulate this fairly well in pitch shifting mode, but it would be a nice feature for the Ring Modulator mode. Overall I'm happy with the purchase and it is worth the money considering everything it can do.
