Mike McCready’s EHX POG2 Polyphonic Octave Generator

The EHX POG2 Polyphonic Octave Generator can be seen pretty regularly on Mike’s pedalboard since around 2012. According to an interview he did with Premier Guitar, Mike really likes this pedal and the fact that it makes the guitar sound less like a guitar.

The thing I’ve been really excited about lately that I saw the guys in Soundgarden using at their rehearsal is the POG2—the Poly Octave Generator. I’ve been doing a little bit of scoring and I worked on an episode of Shameless and did this movie Fat Kid Rules the World and ended up using the POG on a few things because it makes the guitar not sound like a guitar. It makes it sound like a weird calliope or an organ—kind of makes some cool sounds.
