thoughts on my POG Polyphonic Octave GerneratorThe POG is easy to use and WOW! what a sound. My fiddle sounds like a whole string section. Other guys in the band couldn/t believe the sound. Thanks to Robert Williams

Amazing ToneI've been building a pedalboard for some time and was dead set on getting a Whammy to add flavor to my existing palette. After playing through the latest one for an hour, the pedal just felt like it was fighting me the entire time. I saw the POG and plugged it up to a SVT classic with an 8x10 and a MM Stingray Classic. Seriously this is the first octave pedal that didn't add any color to the original signal. All the tone remained whether the effect was engaged or not.
Now, the POG2 has more functionality but I'm a set it and forget kind of player, so the simplicity of the Micro POG was perfect. Cranking the dry with the sub at noon and the octave up around 11, gave a beautiful full, shimmering tone. The POG added just the right amount of thick and color to fill out a bass line. I instantly purchased it from SW because of the 3 payments (the pedal is a bit pricey but completely worth it) and it will round out my board.

You People are Crazy! This is a great pedal.I don't know why everybody is giving this thing low reviews. This thing does its job well. Its not made to be as bizarre as the full featured POG. Its just supposed to be a octave up and a octave down. It does that very well. Its great for adding some beef or adding something to cut through well. Its a great pedal. If your think about it just do it! Its awesome.

GREAT FOR SWELLSThis is a great pedal if you are looking for the sub octave thing. Like any pedal this one can be overused very easily. We mainly use this pedal for our big airy swells that you find in alot of christian rock music. It also does well in lead rides at a lower level. This is not a big bang pedal but if you are looking improve your tone and fatten up some stuff than this one is for you.

Great Sound for BassI have been looking for a good sounding octave pedal for bass for a while. I read about this and it seemed it would be a good choice for bass because of the ability to select an octave up. I bought it, and It is the best I have tried, especially for the price. Anything from sub harmonic stuff to sounding like a guitar or organ. The Pog has really brought my sound out front. Highly recommended for Bass players!

In Big Brother's ShadowI was dissapointed. I had tried the POG, and loved the sound of it. The micro-POG seemed liked it just had fewer features, at a lower price point, but I ended up being dissapointed wiht the sound quality of it. While the big POG made my guitar sound fat, singing, and organ-like, the micro pog just made it muddy and screechy. While I would recomend the HOG or the POG, I don't think they did a good job with the micro.
