Maybe your band doesn't need a keyboard player anymore! With the Electro-Harmonix C9 Organ Machine (out in 2015) any guitarist can sound like the mellotron flutes in The Beatles' Strawberry Fields Forever or like Ray Manzarek's organ in The Doors' Light My Fire, besides many other great sounds!
The main difference between this new C9 Organ Machine and the previous B9 Organ Machine (released to great acclaim in 2014) is that the C9 has new presets designed to sound exactly like some of the most recognisable organ sounds from classic rock'n'roll songs from the 60's and 70's!
Some of the sounds you can easily get from this pedal include: mellotron flutes from The Beatles' Strawberry Fields Forever; John Paul Jones organ in Led Zeppelin's Your Time Is Gonna Come; Jon Lord's Highway Star tone in Deep Purple; trippy shimmery Brian Eno-esque keyboard sounds; prog rock-style organ like Keith Emerson from Emerson, Lake & Palmer; Ray Manzarek's organ sound in The Doors' Light My Fire; Billy Preston classic organ sounds from The Beatles' Let It Be Sessions, and even the Clavioline from 'Telstar'!
This is one of the most awe-inspiring fx pedals the guitarists will see in 2015, giving them some vintage organ sounds at the press of a foot-switch! It doesn't mean the B9 will be obsolete, either: the new C9 and the B9 sound great as part of the same setup! With the aid of any ABY-style switch pedal, for instance, you can alternate between the pedals or blend both sounds, for very rich-sounding keyboard backing.
