"H9 Max Honest Review"
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I bought the Max version so that I would have all the effects in one pedal and use the midi function with a single midi foot controller. Unfortunately, this is a single effects pedal only! Yes it has many effects built-in, but you can only use one effect at a time. So my dreams of having a clean floor space is over and I paid dearly for the name. This is a SINGLE effect pedal only. It comes with samples of their 4 different stomp boxes, but you can only use ONE AT A TIME. One of the most expensive single effect pedals out there. Eventide acts like Apple corporation, very stingy when it comes to using their product. You're gonna pay way too much for the name and get only a single effect. I always wondered why I would see more than one of these on someone's pedal board, now I know.
Lots of effects but few are usable. I went through all the presets and found that over 90% of them could not be used unless I was laying soundtracks to a sci-fi movie. The few patches that I could use were awesome, but only one effect at a time. For what I paid for the H9 Max, I was extremely disappointed.
Midi, compact design, but only one effect at a time.
Ease of Use
Bluetooth interface was smooth. Lots of presets, but I play in a band, not making soundtracks for a sci-fi film.
Built really well, unfortunately, you can only use one effect at a time.
For a single effect pedal, this is not money well spent. Buy a real multi effects pedal that allows you to run multiple effects at the same time.
The Wow Factor
I was wowed by the fact I spent way too much money on a single effect.
Classic to new rock
