The tech boys over at Electro Harmonix are gods, for they have produced the holy grail of guitar effect pedals; The Ravish Sitar Pedal.
I was lucky enough to cut my teeth on a few original Electro Harmonix pedals when Alex purchased a few back in the nineties, the Big Muff (fuzz), Polyphase (phaser) and Electric Mistress (flange) were used on a couple of our tracks, ‘The Otherside’ and ‘You Stink’ immediately spring to mind!
I stumbled upon the Ravish Sitar pedal by accident whilst searching the net for an idea that I had for a song; having watched the youtube promo video, I went out and bought myself one along with my own Big Muff whilst out in the States!
For those unfamiliar with the brand or for those of you who are are just starting out to experiement with your guitar sound; I’d really recommend Electro Harmonix pedals because they are the absolute puppies privates when it comes to guitar FX pedals. They are without a doubt the best made products on the market and are highly customisable to get unique and brilliant variations in sound.
The Ravish Sitar pedal is incredible in what it delivers, you can tweak and set up your sound by Key, delay, modulation. You can also fiddle with several knobs (technical term!) to adjust the sympathetic settings, lead and delay; all of which can give you very different results indeed!
I got mine out the box, played around with the settings for about 30 minutes with the guitar tuned to C Major and this is the result I got! As you can see, anyone can sound like a shit Ravi Shankar now! So go out and buy one immediately! Antikrish commands it!
