ELECTRO-HARMONIX Mel9 Tape Replay Machine Pedal

Turn Any Guitar with a Pickup, Bass or Keyboard into a Mellotron!

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.

Simply plug in your instrument, then select from nine authentic Mellotron sounds:

• Orchestra
• Cello
• Strings
• Flute
• Clarinet
• Saxophone
• Brass
• Low Choir
• High Choir

Using the Attack and Sustain controls allow you to shape your sounds and separate Dry and Effect outputs allow for dual amp setups. EHX’s range of keyboard-emulation pedals are amazing, and the Electro-Harmonix MEL9 Tape Replay Machine is one of our favorites.

Pays homage to nine of the coolest Mellotron® sounds: Orchestra, Cello, Strings, Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone, Brass, Low Choir and High Choir

The Mel9 works on any guitar with a pickup without modifications, special pickups or MIDI implementation. The Mel9 is so clever that you even perform bends, slides, even whammy dive bombs! The Mel9 needs a strong and even guitar signal to work effectively. Accurate picking really helps and we have also found that the addition of a compression pedal before the Mel9 levels the input signal. Check our listings or contact us for information regarding compression pedals.

You can also use the Mel9 with a bass guitar down to the open A string.

The Mel9 also works well with keyboards within the limits of its polyphony (5 notes) and range (A1 to A5). Imagine having a portable digital piano and two Mel9 pedals – one for strings and one for choir. Simply step on one and let the extraordinary technology resurrect the sound of vintage tape based keyboards – in an instant the sound of a choir or an orchestra erupts behind your piano track.
