John Frusciante’s Electro-Harmonix POG

John used this pedal on the outro part on ‘Snow (Hey-Oh)’, and on the second chorus on 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.

Nonetheless, in case you’re searching to buy one – the original full-sized POG that John likely used is no longer being manufactured. The only option you have right now is the newer version – the EHX POG2.
