The award winning HOG (Harmonic Octave Generator) earned kudos from players and reviewers alike for its ability to exponentially expand a musician's sound palette. Now EHX take the HOG to an even greater level of performance and functionality with the HOG2. It delivers complete control of ten totally polyphonic and glitch free voices ranging from two octaves below to four above the instrument's pitchâ€”all without the need for a special pickup or instrument mods of any kind.

Sophisticated new algorithms improve the quality of the ten generated octaves and harmonics as well as the Freeze function.
Full MIDI control over all parameters and presets
A Master Volume for added control and convenience. Volume levels are saved as part of a preset.
10 Controllable harmonic intervals and 7 Expression modes
Freeze modes holds a note or chord so you can play over it or slide to new notes like a keyboardist playing portamento.
Amplitude envelope controls your attack or decay speeds.
Dedicated resonant filtering with sweepable frequency control.
Separate lower and upper harmonic amplitude envelopes.
Save and recall up to 100 preset programs with the optional Foot Controller (sold separately)
Modern horn players are embracing the way effects pedals help them expand the boundaries of their axes. Whether it’s turning a tenor sax into a baritone, empowering a trombone to play chords, or enabling horn players to create avant-garde soundscapes that were once beyond their reach, EHX is at the fore of this innovation.
Here, saxophonist Geoff Countryman and trombonist Rick Parker explore how the EHX H.O.G.2, Ring Thing and Superego Synth Engine open new doors for the creative horn player.
These pedals were conceived of and designed by EHX from globally sourced components. Every EHX pedal goes through a stringent testing process by musicians and technicians in NYC before packing.
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.”

Mike Matthews stated: “The image on our Flashback Poster is of the original artwork that inspired the famous Electro-Harmonix logo. I think players who dig our pedals will also enjoy the chance to own a piece of EHX memorabilia.”
Did you know that Electro-Harmonix makes many of the world's greatest vacuum tubes? The next time you need to re-tube your guitar, bass, or hi-fi amp, be sure to insist on getting authentic Electro-Harmonix tubes.
Our new EHX Strings Electro-Harmonix electric guitar strings are custom-designed to our specifications and made in the USA by a premiere string manufacturer. Each wound string is precision wrapped with round nickel-plated steel onto a high carbon, hexagon-shaped steel core. The plain strings are made from the same high carbon steel as the hex cores. The high quality steel and computer controlled winding process results in strings that intonate accurately, are better at staying in tune and vibrate evenly for maximum sustain.
