So, aside the Super Pulsar, Electro Harmonix have released four other pedals for the Winter NAMM 2015:

- Holy Grail Neo Verb:


- Octavix Octave Fuzz


- Good Vibes Chorus/Vibrato


- and yes, they've resurrected the Bad Stone Phaser from the '70s

The 'good vibes' is worth keeping an eye on I think - I've been wanting that sort of thing for a while since I can never decide whether I want a chorus or phaser on my board.

The Bad Stone could be cool too - it's basically a Small Stone with more tweakability, right? Squeezing the Grail into the new standard 'neo' enclosure is unsurprising, but good news for people who want one.

WTF is going on with the graphics of that other one though? I can't even figure out its name. Urgh. Back to the drawing board there.

That Chorus/Vibrato is a Univibe clone?

EHX really lost their identity this past decade.

4 real

They tried to be all things to all people, instead of just doing their own thing which was always the coolest.

Apparently the pedal with terribad illegible graphics is called the Octavix:

Which is EHX going (partly) back to their roots in making quirky fuzzes I suppose.

Nah it's just them copying other pedals again.

Don't know whether to call them ehx or behringer anymore.

fix'd

Didn't even change the name.

I dunno, it's a moot point because soon they'll have been going longer/stronger in this vein than any other, but in the '80s and '90s it was a well known music shop secret that a big, old-fashioned, clunky sheet metal box that said Electro-Harmonix on it would just be a little wackier and a little weirder than any compact on the contemporary market. Those that didn't flock to rack effects bought $20 Triangle Muffs and Poly Phases, Adrian Belew and teh Kurdtz and Pumpkins and Primus sang their praises to no end in all the magazines, they had a triumphant return, the first awesome website by a guitar fx company pretty much ever, and yet nowadays the name "Electro-Harmonix" strongly implies you're getting a hammond BB clone of a Klon, Uni-Vibe, Octavia or some other tired old circuit that the interwebz boutique boom has made bog-standard.
I'm not saying the brand has turned to dogshit and there's certainly been much to rave about in the past 15 years, but it does seem that it's lost the way it's original products spent a prior 30 years paving... and their NAMM debuts have certainly taken a turn for the snoozey.

Probably the closest they got to their roots in spirit recently were those accelerometer wahs, followed a few months later by little flat-bottomed stationary coasters for them to sit in because oh shit, everybody has a pedalboard now. That seems like something they would've pulled in the '70s if it had been possible.

Having previously gone out of business I imagine that the number 1 goal for Matthews is for that to not happen again. A huge amount of the wacky stuff is right there in the line-up, but now sitting alongside the Klon clones and stuff that they now do. Why are they doing that? Because that's the shit that sells. They're still being somewhat innovative while at the same time supplying the same old boring shit that guitarists obviously crave. We're a conservative bunch.

Just been looking at the 2015 EHX catalogue. Their range is enormous at the moment.

Couple I hadn't seen before:
