Gear Spotlight: The Eventide H9 Max Guitar Effects Pedal

Your Guitar's Trusty Sidekick

Today we’re devoting some time to talk about one of history’s most important inventions. No, we’re not talking about the wheel, or the cotton gin, or even the refrigerator—we’re talking about a special box you stomp with your foot to make neato sounds come out of your guitar: Eventide’s H9 effects pedal.

A complete pedalboard in one stompbox, the H9 Harmonizer effects pedal is full of Eventide’s iconic reverb, chorus, delay, modulation, pitch-shifting and distortion effects. With the H9, you can evoke the sonic landscape of legendary albums and open the doors to the creation of new sounds never heard before. Faithfully recreate the iconic sounds used by top artists, engineers and producers such as Steve Vai, Jimmy Page, Frank Zappa, Eddie Van Halen, Richard Devine, Suzanne Ciani and many more.

The award-winning design of the H9 features a simple, one-knob user interface which allows easy effect editing and preset selection. Two onboard footswitches let you change presets, tap tempo, and bypass with your feet during live performance. The H9 offers studio quality sound, stereo I/O and full MIDI compatibility. With the free H9 Control app, you can purchase additional algorithms, create set lists, edit and manage presets wirelessly via Bluetooth or USB. The app is available for iOS, Android, Mac and PC.

The algorithm also has vibrato, stereo detune, and two envelope destinations (Mix & Rate) on tap.

Current H9/H9 Core owners can purchase the algorithm from H9 Control as an in-app purchase for $19.99; TriceraChorus is free for H9 Max owners.
