First Look: Electro-Harmonix Cock Fight and Key 9 pedals

Electro-Harmonix keeps releasing innovative new pedals. Here are two Guitar Moderne readers might enjoy.

Cock Fight

Aside from its brilliant name and cool graphics, this new pedal from EHX looks extremely useful and sounds great in the hands of the amazing Bill Ruppert. He even manages to make the talking wah sound a little like Foghorn Leghorn at the end.

Ruppert’s matching of the different sounds with songs that used the original keyboard inspiration helps put them in context, but also points out areas where trying to exactly mimic the original sound might fall short. When used to create original music however, this would not be an issue and it is easy to see how these sounds could offer a whole new sonic pallet for guitar creativity.
