Electro-Harmonix Key9 Electric Piano Machine Guitar Effects Pedal at a Glance:
  • A full range of presets delivers classic electric piano sounds and more
  • More than just an electric piano pedal
  • Two killer ways to mix your guitar with your organ effects
A full range of presets delivers classic electric piano sounds and more

The Electro-Harmonix Key9 Electric Piano Machine is a box full of classic electric piano and percussion tones. In addition to the standard tine and reed electric pianos, you also get three percussion sounds and a glorious Tri-stereo Chorus effect. The Dynamo setting gives you the well-known "Dyno My" modded Fender Rhodes sound that ruled the '80s. For the instantly recognizable reed piano sound associated with many famous songs and bands, you'll want to use the Wurli preset. And when you need the quintessential tine-tinged tones, the Suitcase and Eighty Eight presets are the way to go. Each preset on the Electro-Harmonix Key9 Electric Piano Machine is loaded with classic effects like phase, tremolo, and chorus to give you an authentic vibe.

More than just an electric piano pedal

In addition to the electric piano's sound, the Electro-Harmonix Key9 Electric Piano Machine has a trio of percussion instruments that will expand the sound of any band. You can choose from the marimba, vibraphone, and steel drums. The Key9 pedal is also loaded with a classic tonewheel organ with rotating speaker. And last, but definitely not least, EHX built in a lush tri-chorus effect that delivers rich, textured sounds. Grab the Electro-Harmonix Key9 Electric Piano Machine guitar effects pedal and add a whole new dimension to your playing.

Two killer ways to mix your guitar with your organ effects

There's no denying that the Electro-Harmonix Key9 Electric Piano Machine's effects are absolutely awe inspiring, but you can really work some magic by blending your dry guitar tone into the mix. Lucky for you, Electro-Harmonix decided to give you two cool ways to do this. If you're like most of us, and you only gig with a single amp, then you can simply blend the two sounds together via the designated Dry and Keys knobs. But, if you're in the studio or you're more of a high-tech guitarist, then you'll appreciate the Key9 Electric Piano Machine's dual outputs, which let you run two amps or set up more complex pedalboard configurations. And if you're looking for a way to put that to good use, just give your Sweetwater Sales Engineer a call - you're bound to get some great suggestions.

K9 electric piano machine pedal

For my live solo gigs, this pedal adds a new dimension to my sound when I also loop my ideas to play. It gives an extra cool voice for my band Oui'3 when doing concerts across the United States. In the studio it gives a producer a new angle from the sounds that I can get from it. And, the sounds are truly amazing ! Buy this!

Electro-Harmonix pedals

I have used Electro-Harmonix pedals for many years. I like some of the newer brands, but I consider the E-H pedals, original old school. Even so, they never stop trying to improve, and stay on the cutting edge with realistic, if not unique sounds. The key 9, and C9, both prove this point. I purchased them both from Sweetwater, and could not be more pleased..
Music background: Musician since 1968, multiple imstruments

Good to great to insane

At first I plugged it directly to my mixer, and it sounded good. Then I put my volume pedal in front to add some swells, and it was great. But then I put my other-than-Electro-Harmonix M9 processor behind it, and it was insane. It's the most fun I have had with my guitar in a long time. You know all those ridiculous effects that some guitar processors have... things like uber-long reverb tails, weird auto-volume, and all that, things you would almost never use with your guitar? Well, use those odd effects with the Key9 and you just created mojo magic. It is really a great pedal and exceeded my expectations. I love how it has a wet and dry output jack. I run the wet out through the M9, and the dry out directly to my guitar processor. It's perfect.

retired and playing my musical hobby

The only one i have right now is the C9 and it is the best fantastic sound i have ever heard in a pedal. I will probubly get the B9 before too long and then i will be happy, but for now i will enjoy the C9 and see what i can do with that. It is well worth the price, and it is like being in another world somewhere with all the beautiful sounds that it has and did not know how good it was till i watched the videos on these Electro-Harmonix Piano Machines. They sure have come along way in technology and all the effects that you can get in one pedal these days !
