I always love getting emails from Bill Ruppert – Mr. Effectology – because it means my mind is about to be melted by hiterto-unexplored worlds of guitaristic colour. The latest such email reads simply: “Bill Ruppert, Mr. Effectology, fires up EHX’s newest multi-effect pedal: the Epitome.

The other day I received this email from the very talented Bill Ruppert:
I am writing to tell you of a new Effectology video I know your viewers would enjoy and have fun watching for Halloween. (This is the video series I do for Electro-Harmonix on how to produce “impossible” sounds using just a regular guitar and EHX effect pedals.)
Electro-Harmonix Effectology, Vol.9 Terrifying Effect Pedals.
In this episode I demonstrate how to frighten your family, friends and neighbors using just a regular guitar and Electro-Hamonix effect pedals!
Its great fun.
Wanna make these sounds yourself? Here’s Bill’s ‘How to’ on the EHX forums.

My name is Bill Ruppert and I thought this would be of interest to your viewers.
I have developed a video series for the effect pedal company Electro-Harmonix called “Effectology.”
Every two weeks I present a new video on how to produce “impossible” sounds using just a regular guitar and EHX effect pedals.
This week I recreate the synthesizer classic “Autobahn” by the band Kraftwerk.
All sounds were created using just a regular guitar and effect pedals! No keyboards, samplers or midi pickups were used.
The video is here:
The “How To” info and settings are here:
Amazing work, Bill! Also it’s nice to see an Ibanez JEM77FP being put to such great use!
