I'd really like to check out the micro POG. The video demo on the E-H site is pretty impressive. What do you think of the POG's?

Both are awesome if you want clean octave sounds with polyphonic tracking.

The regular POG has some mild noise, but the range and cleanliness of its octaves are astounding. Perfect for organ sounds.

The Micro POG captures the basics of the POG (minus the noise), but it seems to sound just as "big" when you turn up both octaves. Plus, it's 9VDC, unlike its bigger brother.

I own the regular POG. It is awesome, though I admit I'm often hard pressed to find more use for it yet. I find I'm using it more on my, gulp, guitar :roll: and it is amazing how much it sounds like a pipe organ. Used subtly, I can get a very close approximation to a 12 string Rick as well, and it also has a sub-harmonic octave (which I don't believe the micro has) that can give you cool synthy, techno dub-type sounds. But it does open up some new sonic terrain for the bassist as well, and best of all there's none of that poor tracking fartiness you get on lower notes like I used to on my Boss OC-2.

The Micro POG has the Sub Octave feature, as well as 1 octave up. What it lacks are everything else - the +2 octave, the detune sliders, etc.

The Micro POG is just a really simple, practically noiseless version of the POG. 1 octave down, 1 octave up, and a Dry signal knob. That's about it. ;)

I have a Micro POG and it is one of my favorite pedals!
