The EHX MEL9 Tape Replay Machine is a game-changer for electric guitar players and musicians alike. This innovative pedal allows you to recreate the iconic and quirky sounds of vintage tape-based Mellotrons® without the need for extra devices like special MIDI pickups. With the MEL9, you can bring to life nine magically unique Mellotron® sounds with ease. Whether you're a guitarist, keyboardist, or bassist, this pedal opens up a world of sonic possibilities.

Nine Classic Mellotron Sounds at Your Fingertips

The MEL9 pays homage to nine of the coolest Mellotron® sounds, including Orchestra, Cello, Strings, Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone, Brass, Low Choir, and High Choir. What sets this pedal apart is its ability to work seamlessly with electric guitars without requiring modifications, special pickups, or MIDI implementation. It tracks guitar bends, dive bombs, slurs, and all the expressive techniques you can throw at it. Plus, it extends its versatility to bass guitars down to the open A string and keyboards within its polyphony and range limits (5 notes, A1 to A5).

Precise Control and Seamless Integration

The MEL9 features independent Effect and Dry volume controls, allowing you to fine-tune your mix at the Effects output. The Dry Output jack ensures your input signal is output at unity gain. The Attack control lets you adjust the volume swell speed, while the Sustain control fine-tunes the release time after a sound is stopped. This pedal is designed to seamlessly integrate into your setup, providing a convenient and efficient way to achieve those classic Mellotron® tones.
