There are actually some other uses for this than just the organ. You can get a reverse guitar sound, or mandolin, and several others but you have to learn how to tweak the controls...but it's really quite versatile. I'm sure I've barely tapped into the potential here. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is there are a few artifacts that you can hear just due to the nature of the differences between a fretboard and a keyboard. I'm not sure that could ever be truly addressed digitally, but the vast majority of your audience is not likely to hear it like you will. You can overcome most, if not all of it with technique..particularly if you finger pick.
Overall, I'd say it's a very handy tool depending on what type of music you play. My band plays a fairly wide range of material, so I'm finding a fair amount of applications for it. Your mileage may vary.
First of all, this pedal is beautiful looking. I love the simplistic, stunning choice colors this pedal has, which makes it look very sleek and demands your attention. It truly stands out to me on my effects board for the look alone, and it sounds incredible as well. The case is sturdy, the knobs and switches are all solid and made to not break easily. I wouldn't hesitate to bring this to any of my shows and would not fear of breaking it.
With the POG 2, the sounds are very "keyboard" and "synth" sounding, but this is not a bad thing at all! On a bass, if used to boost the high octave 1 or 2 times, you can use this pedal to very accurately mimic a keyboardist playing a synth sounding piano. This is because the tracking is faster with digital octave pedals like the POG 2. It is definitely a digital sounding octave so make sure the sound and tone are ideal for your needs, yet the plethora of choices offered from the effects sliders make this pedal truly shine, giving it much more than just an octave pedal.
I can recreate great volume swells and dial in unique modulation with the LP filter, and yet still retain the definition of my notes and octaves. I have had great success using this with a delay pedal and an envelope filter. There are also 8 presets available, which can we accessed by pressing the "preset" button, and programmed to easily let you switch seamlessly between your presets.Read more ›
Also, the tracking is fantastic and of course polyphonic (more than one note at a time).

This brand-new pedal came broken right out of the box. It would short out while dialing in the effect causing a massive pop to go through my system. Read morePublished 14 months ago by brokenpediment
This pedal is awesome! My typical use for it is running the bottom three strings from my acoustic through a split piezo to generate the sub octave bass for finger style playing. Read morePublished 20 months ago by Daniel Wasel
