Inside Electro-Harmonix: How They Make Their Pedals!
BoingBoing took a trip to Long Island and shot a video showing the Electro-Harmonix factory. Watch it here!
[from Musicradar.com] Electro-Harmonix (EHX) is mostly famed for its creation of guitar FX including the Big Muff, HOG and Electric Mistress Flanger, to name but a few. EHX also manufactures vacuum tubes, which - along with every single pedal – are sent to the New York HQ for testing.
