Adrimed's review

By Adrimed, 20/09/2009
POG Electroharmonix (polyphonic octave generator)
18-volt power supply provided.
True bypass.
Between 1/1 output jack.
8 faders:
1 input / 1 output dry / sub octave / 1 octave / octave +1 detuned
2 octave / 2 octave detuned / low pass filter switch with 3 positions.

Nice look.


Use a little weird to departure ...
The volume (input) happens saturation 3/4 of its travel.
The LP Filter is used to control the sonority Gnrale effect from bass / dull the acute / shiny but still a bit difficult to find the right balance ...
The 3-position switch provides a low grade on the interactivity of the LP filter other commands.
The more difficult it is to find a well-balanced sound without its saturated!
But hey it's not drinking water ...


Mouai ... a little of the same when the sound is a little too "artificial" especially in the treble.

Octaves "detuned" are hardly detuns causing a lightweight "flange".
Finally we quickly falls on the same rglages and faders are not really very progressive, once mlangs the sound is a bit messy.
This is a personal opinion, this effect is certe good quality and what it does it does very well to see, but it quickly goes around and that kind of sounds are not easily use as an'importe o.

As for his "low" is not bad, a little cavernous but nice.
12 string sounds a pass / organ sounds very well.
Use me most is convinced solo guitar / phras big good point is that it does not dcroche a hair!


Friendly, clean effect Electroharmonix, even when some chro (purchase OCCAZ) I am spar quickly, perhaps too quickly ?!

The POG (Polyphonic Octave Generator) is one of the most detailed octave pedals you can purchase. It's got more options that most octave pedals. It can't be edited on a computer, it's not rackable, and there are simply the 1/4" inputs and outputs. It's an analog pedal.


The effects editing on this pedal is pretty easy. There are 8 levers that control the input level, the dry (no effect) output signal, and the output for each octave setting (sub octave, +1 octave, +1 octave detuned, +2 octave, +2 octave detuned) and there's also a low pass filter. They all generally sound pretty good. The setup is pretty basic, and everything is really obvious and simple to use. The manual explains everything clearly, you'll only need to read it once, if at all. 


I have only used this with electric guitars. The pedal is pretty transparent if you are only running the dry signal. Obviously, the more octaves you add, the more it gets messed it. The sounds I really like are the twelve string effect (+1, +1 detuned), and the organ effect (all of the octave switches thrown). The organ sound in particular is amazing, obviously it doesn't sound that much like a real organ but it's polyphony and richness of tone are incredible. You can get sounds that I never dreamed possible out of a guitar. I like almost every sound. I tend not to use the sub octave by itself as much, unless I'm trying to replicate bass (which I usually don't do anyway). I like the sound of everything else. 


This pedal is unlike anything I've tried before. I've used octave pedals but none of them have the flexibility and range of this one. I think that it's a pretty reasonably priced pedal, but as always, try to get it used. It sounds great and clear, it can do a lot of things. I would highly recommend it to anybody.

The Electro-Harmonix POG is an extremely unique effects pedal. The POG, which stands for polyphonic octave generator, will add octaves above any note or chord you play, which makes for some incredibly interesting sounds. It is an analog pedal that has 1/4 inputs and outputs and is not rackable.


The general configuration of the pedal is pretty straight forward. It has 8 sliders - input, dry output, sub octave, +1 Octave, +1 Octave Detuned, +2 Octave, +2 Octave Detuned, and Low Pass filter. It is pretty easy to get a good sound out of this as the tracking is great on this pedal.


The effects are very useful, depending on what you are using it for. I can get a really great organ-like sound out of this that blows my mind whenever I use it. It is a versatile sounding pedal as it is possible to get a number of different sounds from this, and it also includes a low pass filter that can come in pretty handy. I have only used this pedal with guitar, but I'm sure it would sound pretty good on other instruments as well. It tracks incredibly well on guitar, making the sound very fluid.


I've been using the POG for about two years and it is yet another innovative pedal from Electro-Harmonix. It transforms my guitar sound into something that I could not achieve without it. I can't compare it to any other pedal, as I'm not sure that any other company has made anything like this pedal. Electro-Harmonix does have a micro POG that is a bit cheaper and has similar type of power, but this POG is much more in depth and has more options for control. While the price of this pedal will drive most away, if you are looking for some cool new sounds and have some money to blow, definitley check out this pedal as it is one of a kind!

Elphaba's review

By Elphaba, 24/11/2008
Input and output jack 1 / 4, Power
-1 Slider to adjust the volume input (a mid race it saturates with low active)
-1 Dry volume slider out (not a blend!)
-5 Slider (volume: OCT-1, October 1, October 1 DETUNE, October 2, October 2 DETUNE)
-1 Slider for the LPF
-1 Switch 3 position for the filter
For details see data on the site EHX

It lacks an outlet for expression pedal to control the filter, and the switch is behind the top and foot-operated. so 9.


Config and editing sounds very simple


I use it with a Jazz bass american deluxe ash maple fingerboard, amp SWR SM 500 and Goliath III HP.

The effect of body and nice with reverb, delay and volume pedal to the swells / layers ...

Here the agreement, no stalling just maybe by placing it after a Fuzz and playing chords ...

The upper octaves, one by one is not very good when played without fade in ... on the other hand I used octaves Up with the filter to the ground (with rev, delay and volume pedal) and there's the fact!

Octave Down does not answer even agree! In addition we just set the filter to make it more or less deaf, not bad! I used a piece to make a sound heart beat very serious and dull, beautiful ... Moreover filter can be treated as the direct sound, it's your choice!

I place the POG before my Big Muff (which is itself in a loop to keep the signal LS2 live) is excellent!


I use it since 2006, it is too well what POG!
I can not do without!

Small feature that I love, it saturates a little stronger when you attack the strings, it's her little effect with the octave down, a feature that did not POG2. Indeed the latter instead of producing a nice saturation gives a "grain" in POG remains clear until the moment when he produced an attack too horrible glitch ...

The nickel and bypass the top no problem. No "pok" has the engagement.

I tried the octave and the pitch shift my GT6B before, Ashdown an octave, the octave multiplexer, nothing to do, the quality is much higher and more its agreements can not win!

Paid 230 euros in nine and now found! If you have a chance to a chopper, jump on it!
