Electro-Harmonix Archives - Pedal of the Day

Electro-Harmonix


There’s something about a wah sound that just gets your body movin’ and groovin’ a little bit. Maybe because it induces memories of your favorite Blaxploitation films, or the first time you heard ‘Shakedown Street‘ live, or when you used to spin Stevie Wonder albums over and over in your youth. Whatever the case may be, it’s a clearly recognizable effect, and one that we can’t get enough of....

A couple months ago, we reviewed today’s featured pedal’s little brother, the 550-TT Analog Delay, and were quite impressed. The Deluxe Memory Man 1100-TT Analog Delay is very similar to it’s younger incarnation, but with one solid difference: Time. Since the control layout, Input and Output jacks, Tap Tempo capabilities and the FX Loop are all the same, head over here to get the skinny on all the controls and quirks...

Sometimes, companies release different versions of pedals, ones that have basically the same layout, but maybe a few less gadgets and gizmos, and sell it at a cheaper price. The Deluxe Memory Man 550-TT Analog Delay retains all the power and prestige of it’s big brother, the 1100-TT, but pretty much just shortens the delay time. Also, the 1100-TT’s first version were made with the coveted NOS Panasonic MN3005 chips, but...

Pedals such as today’s featured behemoth are intimidating, plain and simple. However, once you sit down and chat with the Flanger Hoax from Electro-Harmonix for a little while, you’ll find that it’s a mellow, mild-mannered piece of gear, that just so happens to have a bunch of features and options, making it that much more lovable. A flanger, phaser and modulation monster all wrapped into one, this pedal has a bit of...

Today’s guest review comes to us from Scott W. – find him on Instagram (@honey.power) and Facebook (Scott Willems). Electro-Harmonix’s Stereo Pulsar is a fantastic variable shape tremolo pedal. The setup is very basic, featuring only three parameters and a switch to choose between square and triangle wave types, but the sounds you can achieve are far from it. The Pulsar has three knobs: rate, shape, and depth. You...

The Memory Man. In all its various forms and models, it has always been regarded as one of the, if not the very, best delay ever produced. With famous guitarists such as The Edge of U2 and Ed O’Brien from Radiohead employing it in their rigs for years, this pedal is no slouch in the echo department, and although some may be more coveted than others, they all sound pretty amazing. Today, we’re going to focus on the Memory...

Yesterday, we reviewed a compact pedal that featured a bunch of reverb options, the Boss RV-5 Digital Reverb. Today’s pedal is also a reverb, with a bunch of options, except WAY more than the RV-5, and in a pedal about twice the size. The Cathedral Stereo Reverb from Electro-Harmonix is a beast of a reverb, with almost too many sounds and options to explain…but we’re going to do our best to try. Let’s start...

As is the case a lot of times with effects pedals from Electro-Harmonix, the phrase “Where to begin?” popped immediately into our head as we opened the box for the Super Pulsar Tap Tremolo. So many knobs, so many options and so much to learn, this was gonna be a challenge, but in the best way possible. I mean, it’s figuring out how to use a guitar pedal, what’s more fun than that? A simple Volume knob starts...

Multi-effects units tend to be hit or miss, in my experience, while some can be the most fantastic thing you’ve ever experienced. Today’s pedal, the Holy Stain from Electro-Harmonix, falls somewhere in the middle. Not the best at some functions, but really good at others, the Holy Stain is definitely a pedal worth checking out, even if you might not be using all of its functions all the time. Mix, Amount, Volume and Tone...

Electro-Harmonix Nano POG

Electro-Harmonix Nano POG


Posted By on Monday, November 23, 2015 in Electro-Harmonix, Octave | 0 comments

Having recently reviewed the POG2 and Micro POG Polyphonic Octave Generator pedals from Electro-Harmonix, I was eager to test out their newest octave offering, and see how it stood up to the aforementioned pedals. These little Nano POGs have been all the rage around the guitar world recently, I think mainly due to their smaller, more pedalboard-friendly size, which I was also quite pleased with. Let’s take a look and see how she...

Having recently reviewed the Micro POG, and being impressed with all it could do with such limited controls, I was sure the POG2 was going to really give off some crazy sounds. Guess what? It does! I understand the space-saving and simplicity aspects of the Micro POG, but when it comes to my new favorite POG model, this one takes the cake. Working with numerous options and roughly a bajillion different sounds, the POG2 features a...

Oh boy, this pedal really opens up a can for sure. I was on a search. I wanted something specific. Tremolo speed control with an expression pedal. The Worm! An affordable pedal with tremolo and expression control! Well with that feature I have to say I was a little disappointed to say the least. The Worm by Electro-Harmonix is a multi effect unit from one of the industries greats, with so many “classic” “must have” units to their...

When it comes to pedals, I love a good overdrive, a sweet analog delay and a big, fat wah, for sure, but when a company comes up with something that makes new, exciting and not-often-heard-before sound effects, those kinds of pedals make my ears start to smile. While octave pedals are not a NEW genre, per se, the Micro POG from Electro-Harmonix is a beast unto itself, a fresh and new take on a classic sound, with a couple of great...

Wah-wah-wah….what a great sound. In any variation, whether it’s through an actual wah pedal, a filter of some type or through a series of effects that somehow produce it, that waka-chicka tone is beloved by many, many people, not just guitar players, and has been heard on countless recordings and millions of live shows over the last 5 decades. Being pretty well known for creating some fun wah/filter pedals,...

I love a good delay pedal, and today’s version has some excellent features, good options and some wicked rad modulation as well: the Deluxe Memory Boy Analog Delay from Electro-Harmonix. I know, I know, the Memory MAN is the one you’re supposed to get, being a classic and all, but I wanted to see what EHX was up to recently in their delay department, and was definitely not disappointed. Let’s start off with the basic...

I’m not a big fan of multi-effects units, but this one is really cool. Three awesome Electro-Harmonix effects in one: the Micro POG, Stereo Electric Mistress and the Holy Grail Plus. Alone, each effect is great, but together they make amazing tones. From organ tones to shimmering reverbs you hear on many other coveted reverb units, you’ll be entertained for hours trying and finding new sounds to tickle the ears. First, the...

I was born a synthesist. I didn’t know it until long after I had given up playing keyboards and spent years learning how to play bass and then guitar, but it’s true. My calling is not to be John Entwistle or Jimmy Page, but to be Suzanne Ciani or Edgar Froese. That probably explains why I’ve spent my entire musical life goofing around with funny little boxes on the floors of practice spaces. Being a huge fan of...

The Stereo Memory Man with Hazarai from Electro-Harmonix is an awesome delay. Plain and simple. Sure, other delays might have more bells and whistles, but this baby packs a lot of options into a small enough space so that it won’t take over your entire pedalboard, like some larger delays tend to do. That said, it also sounds great for being digital, still having some warm and inviting aspects of our old-time analog friends, but...

The Electro-Harmonix Small Clone is an extremely well built unique sounding chorus pedal. With only one rate knob and one depth switch, it is very easy to dial in a great chorus sound. This pedal works great with all dirt effects, time based effects, and other modulation effects alike. It is built with time tested Electro-Harmonix quality and styling sure to look as great as it sounds while standing the test of time. The rate knob...

Yet another overdrive based on the famous Klon, the Soul Food from Electro-Harmonix was created to bring great-sounding tone to musicians everywhere…at an VERY affordable price. As with all great Klone-type pedals, the Soul Food provides sweet, creamy, transparent overdrive, but can also go pretty balls out if need be. Volume, Tone and Drive controls are also typical, but like so many other pedals have come to find out, one trip...
