NAMM 2017: Electro-Harmonix Shows Off Blurst Modulated Filter Pedal

Recommended Posts

NAMM 2017: Electro-Harmonix has grafted technology found in keyboard and modular synthesizers into a pedal designed for guitarists and bass players. The Blurst modulates an instrument’s sound like an envelope filter, but instead of the filter’s response being controlled by playing dynamics, it’s controlled by an internal oscillator. The Blurst is a must have for the adventurous player who wants to explore new sonic territory!   

 

Introducing the Blurst, a radical modulating filter. It's an effect often used on synthesizers, but we've designed the Blurst especially for guitar players and bassists who want to explore new sonic territory. 

It features an analog, low pass filter with adjustable resonance, three modulation waveform shapes, tap tempo with tap divide and EXP control over Range, Rate or Filter. An EHX 9.6DC/200 AC adapter is included.
