Sweetwater’s, Mitch Gallagher, gives you an up close and personal look at the new EHX H.O.G.2 Harmonic Octave Generator.
The website sonicstate.com picked the HOG2 as the Best Pedal of the 2013 NAMM Show.
“This particular pedal had us grinning from ear to ear, and we actually didn’t get to see it until the last day of NAMM. It’s difficult to make a journalist smile on the last day of NAMM, we’re usually too busy nursing a headache and trying to remember what our own names are.
But the Electro-Harmonix HOG2 blew us away, this is premium gear right here, but it’s worth every penny. There are a few ‘synth’ pedals out there for guitars, but this one can actually sound like a synth, rather than just a bit-crushed guitar.”
The award winning HOG (Harmonic Octave Generator) earned kudos from players and reviewers alike because of its ability to generate ten, totally polyphonic and glitch free voices ranging from two octaves below to four above the instrument’s pitch-all without the need for a special pickup or instrument mods of any kind.
Of course, it still features:
HOG2 FOOT CONTROLLER
Instant Recall! With the HOG2’s myriad sounds, the HOG2 Foot Controller gives you easy access to up to 100 stored presets. Your entire show can be set up at the touch of a button. When recording you have access to complex sound transitions that can give your songs new depth and integrity.
