EHX HQ, New York, NY, January 12, 2016 – Following the reintroduction of the circa 1980 Crash Pad, EHX announces the newest reissue in its classic analog drum synthesizer series: the Super Space Drum. Featuring the original circuit in a modernized package, the Super Space Drum faithfully re-creates the sounds of the 1979 pedal. By using techniques such as modulating an oscillator followed by a gated volume amplifier it can generate drum sounds ranging from deep kicks to high toms to sci-fi style drums.
The Super Space Drum is triggered via the on-board pushbutton, thru the output of a non-MIDI external trigger source such as electronic drum trigger pads, an electronic pulse as produced by the EHX Clockworks, a clock generator like EHX’s 8 Step Program, gate signals from synthesizers or simple clock sync signals from drum machines. The pedal also allows the user to process external sounds thru the gated amplifier via its Aux input.
The Super Space Drum is sure to appeal to players who love analog synths and vintage sound with modern control. It is housed in a rugged die-cast chassis and comes standard with an EHX9.6DC-200 PSU; it also accepts a 9V battery. The Super Space Drum is available now and carries a U.S.A. List Price of $156.70.
