The polyphonic MEL9 uses the same extraordinary technology as the B9, C9 and KEY9 to transform your axe and resurrect the sound of vintage tape-based keyboards.

Other bands known to have used the Mellotron include The Rolling Stones and the Moody Blues, and bands such as King Crimson, Yes and Genesis turned the Mellotron into one of the quintessential "prog-rock" instruments, too, thanks to tracks such as 'Watcher of the Skies'. Oasis used the Mellotron for the cello sounds in 'Wonderwall', it then became a popular tone once again, and since then has been used by many other acts, including as Red Hot Chili Peppers, Radiohead and Brian Jonestown Massacre's. 

An original Mellotron is pretty pricey, but thanks to the renewed interest, its sounds have become available in many formats, such as software plugins and Nords sound library. Now, for the first time the Mellotron resurfaces as an awesome guitar effects pedal. 

Mellotron is a registered trademark of David Kean, M. Resch AB and Markus Resch.
