Eddie Kramer has such an astonishing pedigree that his career description reads almost like the history of rock‘n’roll itself. During the sixties and early seventies he was at the heart of the birth of rock, when he worked with the likes of The Kinks, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Traffic, John Mayall, The Small Faces, and most of all, Jimi Hendrix — Kramer engineered all four albums released during the guitarist’s life, as well as five Led Zeppelin studio albums. Kramer continued to make music history by playing a central role in the creation of albums for Peter Frampton, Kiss, Derek and the Dominos, Mott The Hoople, John McLaughlin, Buddy Guy, Joe Cocker, Carly Simon, David Bowie, and Carlos Santana -- all of which have given Kramer his iconic status.
In addition to the above mentioned, Kramer has also conducted a career as an accomplished photographer, many of his captures featuring artists he worked with. Speaking to his comprehensive career in music, various pieces of Kramer signature gear have been released over the years. These include a new Hendrix FX Pedal by Digitech, as well as an ongoing collaboration with Waves, which has realized the Eddie Kramer Artist Signature collection of plugins, the Vintage PIE compressor, Helios EQ, and MPX Tape Simulator plugins.
