Back in 2005, Electro-Harmonix unveiled the original POG, a polyphonic octave generator that enabled guitarists to conjure everything from the surreal jangle of an 18-string guitar, to rich, thick walls of symphonic sound.

The Electro-Harmonix POG2 will take you even higher. Use the new attack control to fade in lush, smooth swells. Tune in the new second sub-octave to reach deeper than ever before. The 2-pole resonant low-pass filter now includes two additional Q modes. Slide in the newly enhanced detune to further refine your sound.

The Electro-Harmonix POG2 delivers unrivaled tonal variations—and now you can save your favorite settings, and recall them with a click. The POG2 just plain sounds better, thanks to an enhanced algorithm that delivers a more focused and in-the-pocket harmonic performance. And all this is now packed into our rugged and pedalboard-friendly diecast chassis.

EHX POG2 review: Not just an octave generator


First, I love this pedal. As a keyboardist, organist & guitarist, from the moment I plugged this in and from the first notes, I fell in love with the sonic possibilities of the multi-octave generators right from the start. After all, that's how the organ can grow to such a monstrous cacophony of tones: simply by stacking octaves. But this pedal goes further by allowing you to set the level for each particular octave. Amazing concept. The attack delay, LPF & detune, and their button controls, also round this pedal out as a fantastic tone shaping tool. Simply put, it is an amazing sounding pedal. Polyphonic tracking is dead on, sans audio glitches (except for that with my noise gate, below). The eight preset slots at first don't seem like enough memory for all the different settings this pedal can handle, but the more I use it, the more that eight become more than enough. Very intuitive. The only sonic downside I noticed was when I had this pedal installed after my preamp and Silencer noise gate, the gate seems to mess with the polyphonic tracking of the POG; this was quickly remedied by placing the POG first in the signal chain before the gate. This is a bit on the pricy side for an EHX pedal, but if you have the cash, it is well worth the money for everything it can do. You will love how it makes your guitar sound.



This thing is wild. I'm happy i bought this pedal.


This thing is wild. It has two lower and two upper octaves, plus the ability to save 8 different settings and switch between them while performing. It also has a true bypass that adds zero noise when the pedal is not being used. I bought this to add some bass riffs while looping during practice sessions. Mission accomplished. The lower octaves are perfect for that. The upper octaves were just a bonus and they can be subtle or cranked up to sound like an organ accompanying you. There is zero delay/latency in all 4 octaves; this thing keeps up even with hammering those 64th notes. It's worth mentioning that I have my pedal board routed to BOTH a 2x12 inch guitar amp and an 18 inch bass amp. The low octaves are sweet through the bass amp while the guitar amp picks up the rest. If you don't have a bass amp or otherwise some way to amplify the lower octaves, then you might not have the same experience. This pedal is five stars for performance capabilities, it sounds great. My only complaint is that it feels a little flimsy. All of my other pedals I feel like I could throw them down the stairs, plug them back in and keep going. The POG2 doesn't feel like that. It feels like I could break the faders or stomp the buttons through the box if I really smash them. I'm generally pretty calm while playing though, so I don't believe it will be an issue for me. But it's noticably lighter and thinner metal than my other pedals. All in all I'm happy I bought this pedal. It can make some really cool noises when engaged.





Helps me be more creative.




Good Sound


The unit does some pretty cool stuff and has excellent sound, but the foot switch quality could be better. I had to swap out a new unit because of the foot switch popping when used. I haven't tested the new unit live yet, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed. If the foot switch worked the first time around I would have given 5 stars.
