micropoggie + rumors of sonic mayhem

10 Jul

i picked up a micro pog from gc the other day.  i got a deal and got it for like 190 after tax.   it looks like it was built in ny by electro-harmonix, so that sort of justifies the price tag.   it’s a simple pedal, and it sounds pretty sick through the cello.  the decay is really interesting, especially through the overdriven tube amp.   i think it has a threshold setting where low level signals aren’t processed, so the decay is incredibly dry, almost clipped.  it’s awesome.

there are rumors of a new ensemble featuring former members of Black Tie Elephant.    Zirafa and RockTheCello.   I have to figure out a way to permanently affix my fishman transducer pickup to the autoharp though.   get ready for sonic mayhem.
