This effect is great for gigs. It can add great 'depth' to someone's sound. However, consider the alternatives for the price tag.
My band was having issues holding onto bass players for a while, and I was so sick and tired of training the "new guy". So I picked up one of these puppies along with an a/b/y splitter. From my guitar, I go into the A/B/Y splitter. From the a/b/y splitter, one of the signals goes straight to my guitar amp, the other signal goes through the POG, into a 115 bass amp. I have the POG set up mostly as a sub octave, but I add a little bit of the higher octaves to fill out the sound a bit. Loud humbuckers really overload the POG in this situation, so when I find myself bass-player-less, I usually switch to a guitar with P90's or single coils. For the most part, my "science project" works pretty well when we break out the punk or groove tunes, and even aggressive power chords can sound OK if you strum a little softer. It makes soloing impossible (unless I go crazy and add my Line 6 delay sampler to loop the bass), but it allows me to lock in on a groove with a drummer, and gives us a chance to mess around with or normal "top 40 repertoire" (plus each band member ends up with a little extra cash at the end of the night since we don?t need to pay the bass player). Really neat little toy! Maybe on the expensive side, but has so many possibilities!!
I love this effect. The unit is a bit pricey but the fun you can have with it while tweaking the individual octave levels is amazing. It can distort a bit at times but you can help that by adusting the lp filter. The organ sound it can produce is also one of a kind. Also this unit works very well with bass as other octave pedals seem to have trouble with. If you don't mind shelling out the bucks this is a must have.
This pedal is by far the most unique guitar effect that I have ever used, owned, or played with.Ever since I first played this pedal in conjunction with an EHX Pulsar, I had wanted to add this pedal to my line up... but the hefty price tag delayed that process (hence my 4 stars for value... it's limited in range, but very pricey).I've had this pedal for one month now, and have played numerous gigs with it, and this tone turns heads! Everyone always asks where my band's keyboard/synth player is... and every time, they think I'm kidding when I tell them that our Hammond B-3 organ sound is coming from MY GUITAR!Also, It's great having a foot switchable 12-string sound as well... much more effective than a double neck, and a LOT lighter! Lemme tell ya... a Gibson '59 Les Paul as a 12 string is a HECK of a sound!Rocking out with this pedal through an overdriven amp is even cooler. You too can sound like Joe Satriani's SUPER COLOSSAL. With a sub octave and both +1 and +2 octave tones that track perfectly, you get a FAT overdriven roar that will leave people cowering in fear.Electro Harmonix has done it again, and is continuing its tradition of excellence.
This is the last octave pedal you will ever need. The sound possiblities are basically endless. I just got it and im already loving it. Guitarists who use a lot of effects and are looking for even more new sounds should consider this pedal. I play several types of music and you can use this pedal from fat industrial rock basslines to lush organ. This pedal is nuts. Pricey but worth it. Get it. Now.
Got this pedal a few months back and I love this thing. I use it for the sub octave mostly so i probably could of gotten the Mini-POG. Unlike my old Boss Oc-2, this pedal never fails when it comes to tracking notes and chords. The variety of sounds is just incredible. Perfect for someone who likes making unusual sounds. The amount of over tones and dissonance that can be coaxed from this box is really something. It really is like playing a 24 string guitar with all the sliders up. Turn the out put all the way down when you first plug it in, it has a a pretty high out put. The only negatives is that it adds a lot of noise into your signal (definitely NOT true bypass) and it takes up a lot of room on the ole' pedal board.
I highly recommend this product. An octave higher is something ive been looking for, but this thing has two. after you can also get insane sounds like an organ or 12 string bass.
If you're into octave multiplexation, you'll find that the POG is the most advanced dual-frequency generation and synthesis effect on the market. With an incredible 450tts (technatones) per millisecond, the POG is capable of producing some 4 billion sonic vibrations within the span of a pop song. I have tried a multitude of other pedals, with tuning fork in hand, and none of them comes close in terms of the overall rate and frequency of tonal vibrations. I find that coupling my POG with a Univibe, Poly-Chorus, Tonetron Rockwell 360, and a Holliphone Rectifier I can achieve ethereal sonic soundscapes that would be impossible otherwise. I have also been experimenting in tandem with a E450 hearing aide, and I find that it increases the overall decibal rate and tonality of the sonic textures produced from my (now discontinued) Z-300 Crenoz amplifier. Highly Recommended.
I purchased the POG about a month ago and since then it has become my most played with pedal. You can do anything octave related with it, and that means the possibilities are endless. The soundbytes on Electro Harmonix's site do not lie. This thing can make your guitar sound like a 12-string, an 18-string, a bass, an organ, and a whole lot of other cool stuff. The only problem I've been able to find is that it does produce a little extra buzz, but the good by far out-weighs the bad with this one. Worth every penny. It even looks sweet on the pedalboard.
If it's good enough for Satch, it's good enough for me. Heard teaser title track of Joe's upcoming album, Super Collosal on www.satriani.com; what a freaking huge sound this thing puts out. Will be my 2nd EH pedal, as I already own a vintage Golden Throat mouth tube.
This pedal is great! Originally it seemed too much $. But, to me, if it does what you want - it's worth it. Other octave units are not always in tune or do not always follow real well. This unit does both. It's simple, solid, and it even looks good. I gave the features 8 stars because it doesn't do harmonies - no big deal.
