The Electro-Harmonix B9 Organ Simulator
b9

Price: $215.00

This organ simulator effect box will prove to be quite a crowd-pleaser when used occasionally in about any tune you choose to play. As heads turn, members of that crowd will inquire, “Where is the organist?” Many will not believe that it’s the steel player. However, don’t view this simulator as being a lead “instrument” for a 2-hour concert performance. Use it like your own personal sideman, when you want to add a really different sound to your group or to your steel. Use it artfully as you slip the sound into either the background accompaniment to a song or for a musical break. Even your group will think they have an added instrument in their band.

This unit is well known by guitarists, with the manufacturer directing their advertising to those players. Little did they know how well it works for steel guitarists.

Enough said, just listen to a demonstration of it by noted steeler, Mark van Allen. Just think of how it will add to your sounds and enhance your group. Each sample opens in a new window... just close those windows to return to this page.

Additional info & Demonstrations

If you check out this organ effect unit on the Internet, you will find various prices and demonstrations (mostly by guitarists). You will also find a few demonstrations by steel guitarists, which unfortunately don’t always do the unit justice! The manufacturer’s demonstration of it is one of the best, although directed at electric guitarists. Check it out at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=98u-MDTKAWU

Note: As with all items I sell, you have to be completely satisfied, or I will send you a full refund. The good news is, few have returned one!
