Difficult to understand the operation even with manual

By 

from Reno, Nv.

Pros

  • great concept

Cons

  • Challenging In A Concert
  • Difficult to use

Best Uses

  • As A Bypass

Comments about Electro-Harmonix The Ravish Sitar Synthesizer Guitar Effects Pedal:

I read the manual several times. Its just difficult to operate and the effects are not that great when I can use it. I was hoping for an easy way to reproduce the Sitar sound and for me it hasn't worked the way I imagined.

Better Then I Expected

By 

from Lakeland, Florida

Comments about Electro-Harmonix The Ravish Sitar Synthesizer Guitar Effects Pedal:

I had a choice to get a real electric sitar, but finding one is a major hurdle and a very expensive one, so I opted for another choice, to try out an EH Ravish Sitar pedal AFTER hearing a couple of demonstrations online. I must admit my hopes for this this were high. When it came in, I hooked it up to my Epiphone LP and started playing an electric sitar for all practical purposes. I tried it on different settings with and without the sympathetic feature. Shades of Beatle George! I was impressed beyond those high hopes. Then I got a wild hair and hooked it up to my ESP 8-string bass. I had to turn down the sympathetic setting, because it would overtake the lead otherwise. A bass sitar sounded pretty awesome. Then I went for broke and hooked the Ravish up to my 12-string slide guitar using the slide and - are you ready for this? - an E-bow. I wound up on some uncharted planet in a galaxy far, far away. I don't really know how to describe it, but it wasn't like anything I've ever heard before. I'm most pleased with the accurate sitar sound this thing delivers without a sterile digital sound. I got a warm analog sitar voice out of it. I have a lot more exploring to do, but if I'm already this satisfied with the Ravish Sitar pedal, I'm sure I'll only grow to like it and enjoy it more as time goes on. One thing is for sure, it sure beats putting out a couple thousand dollars for a Coral electric sitar or some hand-made equivalent. I'm not knocking them; I'm just saying this pedal is the way to go if you want the sound without the price tag. Oh, yeah, IT COMES WITH A POWER SUPPLY! How often do you see that. That's worth a sixth star.

Amazing little box

By 

from Memphis, TN

Comments about Electro-Harmonix The Ravish Sitar Synthesizer Guitar Effects Pedal:

This box does more than just make your guitar sound like a sitar. When I took it out of the box, I turned a couple of knobs before starting it up. My Les Paul sounded almost exactly like a sitar. I used two small Fender amps as the drone sound can be split if you use the second output jack. The reason I give this four stars instead of five is because I could not find that original sound after I started checking out the presets. Besides a sitar sound, you can get nice sounding synth-like tones and textures. If you split the lead and drone signals, you can add whatever effects you think would sound good for either of those sounds. The documentation could have been a little better. I got close to the original sound and with a little research on Electro-Harmonix's web site anyone can find the settings to get that sitar sound. I have yet to try this little box out with a single coil pickup guitar. It may sound a little different. If anyone is not sure what this would sound like, go to Electro-Harmonix's web site and watch a couple of the video. I have been disappointed with some special effects but I am definitely not disappointed with this. I would really give this a 4 1/2 stars as only the documentation that came with the box is disappointing.

Don't just Sitar' round!

By 

from Martinez, California

Comments about Electro-Harmonix The Ravish Sitar Synthesizer Guitar Effects Pedal:

Let me start off by saying this bluntly: this pedal is not your average one. The Ravish Sitar is much more akin to a new instrument in a guitar pedal?s form. With its wide range of presents and their infinite modifications and variances, you can voice your guitar as nearly everything from a Sitar to a Harpsichord (or Organ). It is a never-ending joy to play your well-worn, time-tested guitar and it sound so different than anything one could possibly daisy chain together with more conventional pedal varieties. It?s hard to describe the Ravish in the same manner that one would describe, say an overdrive pedal for this same reason; where we can use common guitar terms like ?crunch? or ?bite?. But to assure potential buyers the Ravish Sitar will make your hand-me-down Takamine or Squire sound more like a genuine Sitar than a Coral Electric Sitar and for a tenth of the price. To any fan of George Harrison, Psychedelic or Classical Indian music, this is the Pedal for you.
