      Comments about Electro-Harmonix Mel9 Tape Replay Machine Guitar Effects Pedal:

      Wow! I was immediately blown away at the far out tones this pedal produces! If you throw this on an effects chain, get ready to go experimental, but also doing stuff you would never expect a guitar to do! If you fancy the strings sound, but can't be bothered to go software, this guy is for you. Get tactile and get texture!

      Electro-Harmonix has become one of the best pedal companies out there and MEL9 proves it. With this just one pedal you can record an entire orchestra. Amazing sound and tone. Hours of endless fun in this one pedal alone.

      All you have to do is plug this pedal in to have your mind blown. The tracking is amazing and the sounds are out of this world exact. The fact that Electro Harmonix has done this without the use of a midi pickup or any kind of modification just trips me out. All the Melowtron sounds you can want in a small and easy to use pedal!!!!
