    Their old boxes crack me up. What were they thinking back then? The Electric Mistress, Deluxe Bix Muff, Clone Theory, Hot Tubes, Echo Flanger, Poly Phase. A pedal board would need a 4x8 sheet of plywood and require roadies to move it. EHX has come a long way, baby.

    My faves were the ones like the old Memory Man with the hard wired power supply.

    It was only a matter of time...

    Ad copy says it’s a violet rams head. If they went with the violet circuits that Stomp Under Foot or Vick Audio used then we are in for a treat. Those are amazing.

    Rams head was the last big obvious one, so now what EHX?

    680 white can?

    The four transistor Black and Red from the early 80’s post op-amp era?

    There’s still so many! But this condenses all the various eras into an official EHX cannon, even though literally dozens of variations exist of the triangle and rams head eras, along with several for every other era.

    The BMP rabbit hole is indeed deep.

    (My fav, not that anyone is asking, is Stomp Under Foot’s “The Pi” which is basically the best combination of late period Rams Head and post op amp Black and Red BMP’s. It slays. And I say that as someone who’s owned dozens of these circuits.)

    Back in the day, we used to just call pedal boards "floor".

    It sounds absolutely huge in the room.

    Warm, great string separation, sustain for days, almost a bit synth-y, with loads of overtones, harmonics, and ghost octaves.

    Gonna have to turn the tone knob pretty far to the right to get it to cut through a live mix though.
