Say Hello To The English Muff'n And The Holiest Grail 11/02/05
How Much More Holy?
Electro Harmonix had a couple of cool new stompboxes on display at the NAMM show. The Holiest Grail follows on from The Holy Grail and Holier Grail units and is the NYC company's most advanced reverb pedal while the English Muff'n is an overdrive pedal with a Marshall amp flavour.
This What E-H have to say...
"The Holiest Grail lives up to its name by being the loftiest "Grail" product yet. Carve out your own private paradise by tailoring the length and sound of your reverb using a customizable pre delay and decay time, then add feedback or adjust damping and diffusion. Recall up to eight personalized presets that transport you to sonic extremes, or mix Spring and Hall reverbs together just because you can. Then use the Holiest Grail itself as a midi controller -with the option of adding external control for managing the sliders and loading presets. Heaven never sounded so good."
Would You Like A Muffin With Your Afternoon Tea, Sir?
Over to you E-H...
"Taking its roots from legendary British guitar amplifiers, the English Muff’n recreates their majesty and classic tone with spot-on accuracy. Rather than approximating these amps like 'emulator' products on the market, the English Muff’n employs vacuum tubes, including a glovered 12AY7 cascading into a 12AX7, to produce true Brit-valve sounds that are full of richness and natural saturation. You’ll come to rely on this amp-in-a-box...a bloody masterpiece! "
