Electro-Harmonix Introduces POG2

EH''s new POG2 adds attack control, a second sub-octave control and more

Long Island, NY (June 3, 2009) -- Electro-Harmonix has announced the new POG2 polyphonic octave generator. Expanding upon 2005's POG, the POG2 adds attack control, a second sub-octave, the capability to save settings and more.

EH's product page says, "Use the new attack control to fade in lush, smooth swells. Tune in the new second sub-octave to reach deeper than ever before. The 2 pole resonant low pass filter now includes two additional Q modes. Slide in the newly enhanced detune to further refine your sound.

"The POG2 delivers unrivaled tonal variations -- and now you can save your favorite settings, and recall them with a click. The POG2 just plain sounds better, thanks to an enhanced algorithm that delivers a more focused and in-the-the pocket harmonic performance. And all this is now packed into our rugged and pedalboard-friendly diecast chassis."

True bypass
Totally programmable 8-preset memory with instant recall
5 mixable polyphonic octave harmonics
Attack delay slider controls the fade-in speed of the octaves

Oh no—it finally happened! Now the big question: How long before my verve for guitar recovers from Covid?

This past Sunday I awoke to a very un-Sunday sensation. Hovering on the edge of consciousness, as yet still incapable of contemplating what Sunday mornings are for (lounging in bed till coffee’s made and lunch plans are set, of course!), I was suddenly struck by a godawful stench. As one does, I wrinkled up my nose, lifted my head to look around in disgust, and took a couple more sniffs to see if … I don’t know—maybe I’d dreamt it? Or woke up incontinent? Then I tasted the putrescence. Then … nothing.

Fuuuuuuuck.

We polled our readers to find the coolest guitar shops in the US, and here are the first half of the results, in no particular order.

The 20 Coolest Guitar Shops in the US, Vol. 1
"We asked PG readers what is the coolest guitar shop they've been to in the US. And while long-gone favorites like Manny's Music (New York) and Black Market Music (San Francisco) came up again and again, there were even more current shops topping readers' favorites list. We compiled the 20 most mentioned stores and quickly realized there were too many great photos we'd have to cut in order to get them all in one gallery. So here's the first installment in no particular order. If you're wondering where your favorite is, it may be coming next time, or we might not be aware of it, so feel free to leave your faves in the comments section."
