Electro-Harmonix Micro POG Polyphonic Octave Generator Pedal

Make your 6-string guitar ring like a 12, or turn it into a convincing bass. The easy-to-use Micro POG octave pedal can even create Hammond-organ-like tones.
Broaden your axe's sonic horizons with the easy-to-use Electro-Harmonix Micro POG Polyphonic Octave Generator pedal. With three knobs, the Micro POG lets you push your signal from one to two octaves above your dry tone, and one octave below. Other features include a 1/4" input and two 1/4" outputs -- one dry, one affected -- all in a secure and stable outer chassis with an included power supply to fuel in the volts. A stripped-down version of EXH's full-sized POG pedal, the Micro POG can make your 6-string sound like a 12-string guitar, a bass guitar, or a Hammond-like organ. See what sounds you'll be able to pull out of your axe with this sweet piece of ear candy!

Durable and Long-lasting Outer Chassis

Your Micro POG Polyphonic Octave Generator Pedal is rugged and built to withstand the test of time. This baby will take stomp after stomp and still bring you assured performance for your chords, arpeggios, or single notes without glitching out like lesser octave pedals. The Micro POG's die-cast chassis will keep its inner electronics protected from dust, sweat, and dirt over longer periods of time -- keeping your signal clean and pristine.

Three Controls to Shape Your Sound

The Micro POG lets you hone in on the sound you're looking for without having to contend with a ton of sliders. Your dry control mixes in the amount of your affected signal, your sub octave control mixes in your lower octave, and your octave up control brings in up to two octaves read more above your original signal. With three easy-to-use knobs, this pedal gives you a lot of room to get interesting combinations.

Versatile Options for Guitar or Bass

This pedal is a great companion for bass and guitar players and can really bring in some serious subterranean rumble or high-octave jangle. Not only that, the Micro POG can bring you sounds not commonly associated with guitars or basses. Use the Micro POG to manipulate your signal into an emulated organ sound, or mix this baby in with a whammy pedal or a reverb and add some serious 21st-centery psychedelic sound to your rig. The sky's the limit.

"The POG as part of their "nano" line? A blessing!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I think a summary is unessary, as I've described well enough above.
Sound
I owned the much larger POG, and to be honest, for my needs it was overly tweakable and too large for my pedal board. I will use the nano with my bass for gigs, plus I occasionally do electronic/Merzbow-esque shows. Although living in Vermont those are few! Again, the octave up is super clean (or can sound like an organ as played by JS Bach) and that makes it a unique effects pedal in an incredibly over-saturated and confusing pedal market. Since the resurgence of E-H I believe everything they make is useful and well built. Even the stuff from the 70s is highly prized as innovative. Do not hesitate.
Features
I got mine as a "blemish" for $45 less than new. It was just a return- looks fine.
Ease of Use
Compared to the big POG, it's a no brainer- with of course less possibilities for the larger's incredibly wide range of sound manipulations.
Quality
Many E-H pedals are now cast versus stamped and bent heavy gauge sheet metal, which I think is a massive improvement. Not all their pedals mind you, and the sheet metal ones are fine as well.
Value
The entire nano line are priced super competitively. Some of their products can get very expensive, but in al cases are worth it, IF it's what you are looking for!
Manufacturer Support
Usually very responsive and helpful. But this was about 5 years ago.
The Wow Factor
Most desirable. I am thrilled they included the POG into their nano line.
