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.
Our friends over at BoingBoing took a trip to Long Island and shot the following video. The tour includes an FX designer's very real (and very messy) working environment and "more vacuum tubes than any of you will ever see for the rest your life."

This pedal was built to produce the kind of classic ’60s-style overdrive that only a true Germanium transistor can offer, along with the added convenience of an adjustable GAIN control, BIAS control, and a circuit VOLTS knob for dialing in what E-H calls “that sweet spot found when a battery’s voltage dips.”
