Holy Stain

DESCRIPTION

The first multi-effect pedal from Electro-Harmonix! The EHX Holy Stain is comprised of two stages: an analog distortion and a DSP. Two types of distortion are available: Fuzz and Drive. There are four DSP functions: Room Reverb, Hall Reverb, Pitch Shift and Tremolo. You can choose from one distortion mode and one DSP mode at a time or bypass either stage. Please read further to learn how to fully operate your Holy Stain.

The brilliance of the Stain lies in the dynamic interaction of its controls.

  • True bypass
  • Selectable analog fuzz, overdrive or clean tone
  • Selectable hall or room reverb, tremolo, pitch shifting
  • Mixable effect combinations
  • Three musical tone colors
  • Optional expression pedal control over pitch shifting, reverb time or tremolo rate

“This is not boutique butter tone, this is rock-n-roll. The analog fuzz and drive tones make no apologies, and the DSP effects sound great. For the price, you really can tweak a lot of sounds from this box.”
