Electro-Harmonix STRING9 String Ensemble and String Synthesizer Effects Pedal

Transform your guitar tone into nine different string ensemble and string synthesizers sounds!

The Electro-Harmonix STRING9 effects pedal transforms your guitar tone into nine different string ensemble and string synthesizers sounds without special pickups, MIDI or instrument modifications. It relies on the same technology powering all EHX 9 Series pedals, and includes the signature EHX Freeze effect on 3 of the presets to sample or hold notes and chords with infinite sustain. The STRING9 is equipped with independent Effect and Dry volume controls, so players can precisely tune their mix at the Effects output jack, plus a Dry output jack that always outputs the input signal at unity gain. Controls 1 and 2 have been designed to adjust specific parameters for each of the nine programs, adding usability and flexibility to each sound.

A rotary switch on the STRING9 allows the player to select the sound of their choice from the following options:

  • SYMPHONIC: Recreates the sound of a large symphony orchestra and features an octave-down effect on the lower range of the guitar
  • JUNE-O: Emulates the Juno analog string synthesizer sound
  • PCM: Sound of a small string section sampled by a vintage PCM keyboard, producing a warm vintage string sound
  • FLOPPY: Emulates the sound of an Orchestron optical disc playback sampler, warble included
  • AARP: Emulates the classic ARP Solina string synthesizer
  • CREWMAN: Emulates the Crumar Performer analog string and brass synthesizer
  • ORCH FREEZE: Orchestral sound with EHX Freeze effect
  • SYNTH FREEZE: String synthesizer sound with EHX Freeze effect
  • VOX FREEZE: Mellotron choir and strings sound from the EHX MEL9 with EHX Freeze effect
