Nice bit of kit with plenty of flexibility in what it will deliver. In common with most people who buy this (I guess), I was looking for something that would give me that Byrds jingle-jangle without having to spend the thick end of £2,000 on a Rickenbacker 360. This comes pretty close, and certainly gives the right kind of feel, thickening the sound out nicely in the bass to mid ranges and providing that keening quality at the high end. Note that it allows you to go an octave up or down, or mix the two - for me it was a mix of 25% sub-octave and 50-75% octave up that gave the best sound.
Bear in mind that this gives you an octave up on all six strings, not as on a real 12-string where the top two strings are simple pairs, so it can sound pretty shrill if you don't compensate a bit with the sub-octave. You can also get a pretty good bass sound out of a guitar using the sub-octave - maybe not good enough for live but useful for recording. Maybe varies from guitar to guitar, but in general I got the best sound out the POG using humbuckers rather than P90 pickups.
Nice solid, metal box, no hint of flimsiness at all. Not cheap, but if this is what you need it's decent value.

In my eternal quest to buy effects in order to parrot other musicians, I've bought a couple of pitch shifters and whatnot to try and get the Octave Up effect used by Royal Blood - namely the Boss PS-2 the PS-6. Both of which were awful at tracking the bass frequencies, and only seemed to work when you get into the higher 'guitar' frequencies.

I also have the Boss OC-3, but this, like most "Octave" pedals out there, only does octaves down.

This pedal works brilliantly on bass and when coupled with a bit of distortion or chorus (or both!) sounds really good.I like the flexibility that you can blend in any combinations of the octave above, below and clean (dry) signal, but to be honest, I just use the octave up.

I found a nice simple method for playing Royal Blood style, thanks to the pedal's dual outputs (wet/dry). He uses two full sized POGs on his rig, but for my purposes, this works just fine.Simply:

Bass > Micro POG (wet) > Distortion Pedal > Guitar Amp
(dry) > Tuner Pedal > Bass Amp

The reason I put the tuner in there is that I can switch it on to cut the bass out, so I just have the guitar effect, then I can bring the bass in whenever I want. It's a solution that didn't require me to buy any more pedals, because this one is pretty expensive and hard to find used on eBay.

Hope that helps someone!

I've always had some kind of pitch shifting/octave pedal in my set up and this is one of the best I've used. Can be used to double an octave above, octave below and both together. The pitch shifting, particularly an octave higher, seems far less robotic than I've heard with other pedals and sounds really quite natural. With just the right settings it can almost sound like a 12 string, albeit with less warmth, and I often use it to bring out harmonics which can sound really nice. In fact I even sometimes use it with my electric 12 string and even this sounds pretty good to my ears in certain situations. Combined with a chorus pedal with both the low and high octaves dialled in you can get quite a convincing organ like sound which is a lot of fun. Only thing that would've nice would be the ability to combine it with an expression pedal but not really an issue for me.

Note: Possible power supply issues 21 Sep 2012
By T. Hanson - Published on Amazon.com
UPDATED 1/14/13: This is a great pedal. HOWEVER it uses a special 9.6V 200ma power supply and does not use an internal battery, despite the fact that "9V" is printed on the top of the pedal itself. You should use caution if you plan to power it using a 9V pedalboard power brick. I have had occasional/intermittent problems at certain locations, where I believe there may have been very slightly low house voltage -- at which point the pedal exhibited its (well-discussed) problems (cutting in and out). I did not notice this unusual power requirement when I bought the pedal. Some people run it successfully with good-quality power supplies like the Pedal Power 2+; but you may need to run a separate power connection just for this pedal, and a 100ma connection definitely won't work. The pedal itself is great. Just be alert to power supply issues and be prepared to run a separate power source for this pedal (which is what I now do). I have upgraded my review to 4 stars since this situation has proven quite workable. The pedal is worth 5 stars but you need to be alert.

The POG 17 April 2010
By eupraxis - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I play a Ric 360-12, but sometimes that rich sound is too much for a whole song. In such cases, I can play my Ric 330-6 six string and, when a 12 string sound is required, use the POG to double the sound. It pretty much nails the effect.

Fantastic Simple Pedal 16 Feb 2009
By Stephen S. Kostas - Published on Amazon.com
The biggest complaint I've heard anyone come up with about this pedal is that it's "not the real POG", which honestly, isn't necessarily a bad thing. The Micro POG has 3 knobs and an on/off switch - one knob controls the "dry" signal (the clean signal from your guitar), one controls the "Sub Octave" signal (your guitar signal taken down an octave), and the last controls the "Octave Up" (your guitar signal taken up an octave).
The best part of this pedal is that it's "Polyphonic" - it will track multiple notes at once and work it's magic on every note you play.
This pedal really deserves a place on anyone's pedal board - want to thicken up some of your rhythm lines? Make your Stratocaster sound like an organ? Unleash a wave of "how is he doing that?" sounds?
If you want to do any of that, I would highly recommend the POG.

PS The thing is rock solid.

Love it! 3 Feb 2012

My wife uses this pedal for her electric violin. We chose the pog because it tracks well (there is very little delay between the striking of a note and the effected sound coming out of the amplifier) The metal casing is very durable, and so far the pedal has proven to be very roadworthy. Highly recomended.
I love this pedal 16 Aug 2014

I love this pedal. I used an EBS Octabass for a long time, and found it warbled on Eb and F of my electric bass, would blow out if I used a 9 volt adapter, and created an artificial sound with my bass.

So, I played this Micro Pog unit when my brother used it on his guitar. Its simple to use, does really good low octave work, and also allows you to get an octaver higher at the same time. It tracks well on all notes on my bass, unlike the EBS Octabass. it's a solid pedal, but light. Make sure you get the right adapter for it.
