John Frusciante’s Electro-Harmonix POG

John used this pedal on the outro part on Snow (Hey-Oh), and on the second chorus of the song She Looks at Me, from the 2006 album Stadium Arcadium.

During the outro section I used an Electro-Harmonix POG, which adds multiple octaves and makes the guitar sound like an organ. Towards the very end of the song I created an articulated arpeggio using three distorted guitar parts, each playing one note of the arpeggio recorded onto a separate track.

It’s unknown at this point whether John used the Nano POG or the full-sized version which has much more functionality. Based on John’s quote, the latter is way more likely.
