Ring modulation isnt exactly a mainstream effect in guitar culture. With its droning metallic timbres its one of those sounds that polarises opinion often being thought of as unmusical. What Electro- Harmonix has done with the Ring Thing, however, is to provide ring modulation, but also use it as the basis of a new, more harmonious effect that E-HX calls single sideband modulation, which uses just one band as opposed to standard ring mods two together. In addition to this, the Ring Thing has a pitch shifter that Electro-Harmonix says is capable of transposition, detuning, chorus and vibrato.
