The KEY9 transforms the tone of a guitar and/or keyboard into a convincing electric piano emulation, including several variations of the classic Rhodes and Wurlitzer sounds. The KEY9 also features lively recreations of vibes, mallets, an organ, and even steel drums! Based on the popular EHX B9 and C9 pedals, the KEY9 swerves into electro-acoustic territory via knobs that control DRY and KEY volume, as well as preset-specific features that are adjusted with the CTRL 1 and CTRL 2 knobs.WARNING: Your KEY9 comes equipped with an Electro-Harmonix 9.6DC-200BI power supply (same as used by Boss® & Ibanez®: 9.6 Volts DC 200mA).
