Holy Stain For Vocals

At first, I was frustrated to get a real clean effect for my vocals, but I still gave this powerful tool another chance and somehow manage to solve this problem by using the right amp for live performance, and the right gain (lowering the gain in particular for) through my computer and DAW for my recording.

Phat City Guitar FX

If you want a creative addition to your pedal board, that gives you 2 new Fuzz/Overdrives, warm pitch shifting (when you just slightly detune it's a very warm analog sounding chorus...) The reverb is surprisingly clean and warm. Having a master volume knob is superb, in that you can have it set slightly louder than the rest of your rig and have the ability to boost AND choose 4 different effect at that higher volume level (killer for live). You can create a new guitar sound with this box..

ALL FUZZ and no overdrive.

i purchased this pedal about three years ago loving the hard sound it created and the extra effects inside. I only used the Reverb and very rarely used tremolo and never used the pitch shifter. This is a VERY hot pedal. I recently been playing some pop rock and this pedal is not my go to much then my SD-1 Boss Super overdrive. This pedal is for the Hard rock enthusiast and not the mellow bluesy guitarist or slight overdriven tone. I may just use it for the reverb and SOMETIMES Drive. Honestly this pedal is all Fuzz with only the color selector to change it only slightly.

No Clean Signal

I bought it and returned it since there is no way to use this pedal without having any "real clean" signal. Even when you use it with the "clean" signal. There is distortion applied to your tone. Reverbs where okay, pitch shifter was laggy and tremolo was ok. My least favorite EHX pedal so far... Not my type of stompbox.

Sweetwater Advice

Kent Sallaz

The electro-harmonix Holy Stain is one of the more practical multi-effects pedals on the market today. It includes a small but effective group of effects and will play well with other pedals on your pedalboard. Each effect sounds great on their own and are what you would expect from any Electro Harmonix pedal. Whether you're looking for your first pedal or looking to add a reverb pitch shifting tremolo pedal with additional fuzz to your sound, this pedal will do it.
