In this review post, we’re going to be discussing the Electro-Harmonix Nano POG Polyphonic Octave Generator pedal, including an overview of its unique features.

Product Description

The EHX Nano POG can simultaneously generate multiple octaves from your input signal. Whether you play single notes, arpeggios, or full chords, the Nano POG will precisely track every note or chord that you play.

With the Nano POG, you can mix together your dry signal with two different octaves (one above and one below your original note) to create totally new, inspiring tones.

Separate level controls for dry, sub-octave, and octave up plus an extra Dry out and silent foot switching provide the perfect formula for this compact jewel.

Our Verdict

Nano POG is a simple yet powerful octave that strikes a balance on all fronts: range vs. ease of use, fidelity vs. funkiness, and price vs. performance. It’s intriguing enough to pique the interest of seasoned sound sculptors while being easy enough for newcomers.

The Nano POG, now in its most compact form, still handles like a champ, with flawless tracking and some of the most realistic octaves you’ll get from a pedal-based pitch-shifter. There’s still some delay (try palm-muting to see what we mean), but adding dirt results in meaty riffs, monster chords, and realistic bass impersonations.

Where to Buy

The best place to buy this product has to be Amazon, due to their competitive pricing and fantastic customer service.
