At 20:00 you can clearly see the Micro Pog sitting on Jesse's pedalboard, he has the Dry Out all the way up, Sub Octave off (because he "doesn't need a sub octave"). Jesse says he uses it "very seldom" and only "to elevate a moment in a song". In the [accompanying article](http://www.premierguitar.com/articles/21712-rig-rundown-death-from-above-1979) from *Premier Guitar*, they write: "Keeler’s aggressive, distorted bass tone comes mostly from his amps. His pedals are relatively straightforward, and he uses them sparingly. The signal chain starts with a Dunlop Wah, then into an [MXR M80 Bass D.I.+](http://equipboard.com/items/mxr-m80-bass-di), which sends a bass signal to the FOH engineer. From there, the signal goes to an [MXR Ten-Band EQ](http://equipboard.com/items/mxr-m-108-ten-band-graphic-equalizer-pedal), an [MXR Carbon Copy Analog Delay](http://equipboard.com/items/mxr-m169-carbon-copy-analog-delay-guitar-effects-pedal), [Morley A/B switcher](http://equipboard.com/items/morley-aby-footswitch), then off to the [Ibanez CS9 Stereo Chorus](http://equipboard.com/items/ibanez-cs9), which splits the signal between his two amps. Before hitting the amps, one signal is run through an Electro-Harmonix Micro POG. The last stop in the signal chain is a [Dunlop Kerry King KFK Q Zone](http://equipboard.com/items/mxr-cry-baby-kfk-q-zone)."more
In this photo of Keith Murray's pedalboard, the pedal in the middle is the Electro-Harmonix Micro POG. In [this interview from August 2010](http://images.equipboard.com/uploads/source/image/34972/uhXGb4d.png) originally found on wearescientists.wordpress.com, he talks about first getting the full size [EHX POG](http://equipboard.com/items/electro-harmonix-pog-polyphonic-octave-generator-guitar-effects-pedal), and then the smaller Micro POG: Keith: I’ll try to give you the signal chain in order: Boss tuning pedal, into an Electro-Harmonix Polyphonic Octave Generator Micro– Mahsa Borhani: Which, you said that you found this pedal recently while you were record–writing songs in [Athens]? Keith: No, well, I bought it in the middle of the Brain Thrust Mastery tour, Mahsa: Ok. Keith: I bought the, not the micro, the full, like, you know, theatre, full, Chris Cain: The home appliance. Keith: The home appliance, yeah. I bought it and had it on my pedal board for about six months–it’s a gigantic pedal–um, and it really made me angry, for a long time. But yeah, didn’t come into play until [Barbara](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barbara_(album)).more

> "Then I have an Electro-Harmonix Micro POG and a POG 2. The Micro POG is set for one octave down, while the POG 2 I use strictly for my octave up. I stack them. That’s the holy grail of kick-you-in-your-face tone. When I want to get heavy and knock someone’s balls off, I put that Fuzz Factory on with that sub-octave from my POG." - Chris Bishop; [Vintage Guitar Magazine](http://www.vintageguitar.com/22147/chris-bishop/) interview Due to circumstances with the POG2 breaking, Chris has told [Ultimate Guitar](https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/interviews/interviews/crobot_feel_playing_is_about_not_trying_to_play_notes_but_playing_noises.html) that he now uses two Micro POGs for the octave low and high.more

Now in a small pedalboard-friendly diecast chassis, the Micro POG delivers and will blow you away the first time you use it.
This pedal can add so much color to your tones in so many ways. From bass-like fat tones, to organ-esque and sitar effects, this thing is pretty much the bees-knees of octave pedals.
It does what everyone knows it does and it does it well. Electro Harmonix can do no wrong it seems as this pedal is one of the most popular octave pedals on boards of many musicians across the globe.
I think that it sounds nicer than its family (HOG, HOG2, POG, POG2, Nano POG) though is still digital and therefore it doesn't sound (not even nearly) as organic as MI Audio's Pollyanna Octave but fits my needs more precisely as it just handles the original voice while synths the additional lower and upper octaves clearly.
right now Im not sure weather to get this or the digitech whammy but so far all of the EHX pedals i've tried have been awesome and the digitech ones have been good but not that great but from what ive heard the whammy is freaking awesome but i dont really need the whammy function i just need a good pitch shifter
This is an amazing octave pedal that is very easy to use. The settings are simple and it is a very good addition to many songs and can go from being a subtle effect to a very prominent one
