I would buy this again. It is a keeper on my rig.


It works great!! Melds with my rig seamlessly. Sam ash had it to me the next day when no one else would. That gave me the time to learn it before I had to perform with it.



A guitarist must have item.


Awesomely good. Now I can do horn lines on my songs and put in orchestral pieces. Very versatile for guitarists. It just takes the time to use it properly, I did.



Mel 9 adds so much! Love it!


Performing in restaurants, just myself and a rhythm machine, the Mel 9 adds a fuller sound! Love it!

Far Out!!!


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!

Another great from EHX


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.


Edison, NJ



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!!!!

Great Pedal


This is the best pedal out there for an orchestra sound. I's also good for experimenting sounds. It's even durable and sturdy, I have no problems with this peddle.

The Mellotron Experience


This is an incredible pedal. Electro Harmonix have been making sturdy great sounding pedals for a very long time now. With the Mel 9 you can close your eyes and hear the majesty of the mellotron. From flutes to choir every sound is amazing.
