Stompbox Captures The Sound Of India

See the Electro-Harmonix Ravish Sitar pedal in action      31/08/11

In the latest installment of Electro-Harmonix' Effectology Bill Ruppert focuses on the new Ravish Sitar pedal.
E-H told us, "This video explores its potential and power. In addition to incredible sitar emulations, Bill shows that the Ravish is capable of creating other truly mind bending sounds. The flexibility of the Ravish Sitar pedal is truly stunning!"
Here's how E-H describe the new pedal:
Very few instruments offer as much harmonic and dynamic flexibility as a sitar. Electro-Harmonix has streamlined the essence of the sitar into a compact enclosure that offers a polyphonic lead voice and tunable sympathetic string drones that dynamically react to your playing. Create your own custom scales for the sympathetic strings while you set the decay time for the lead voice. Two expression pedal inputs allow you to bend the pitch of the lead voice and control the volume of the sympathetic strings simultaneously. These unique controls offer the player the ability to program the Ravish to become a totally unique and organic instrument unto itself. The Ravish is a truly new design with the flexibility to be a crossover tonal wonder.
