Electro-Harmonix Holy Stain
Multieffect two "stages":
The stage gain (drive / Fuzz) and stage effects per se (Reverb / Pitch / Tremolo)
An aluminum housing and switches well beefy. Surprising.
I read somewhere that some distortion / fuzz was analog and the digital effects party but can not guarantee the above ...
Supplied AC power required.
Entrance, exit and an entry for an expression pedal.


There must hang a bit!
A bypass switch
Dirt: 3 positions Clean / Fuzz / Drive to adjust the overall gain of the device
Colour: 3-step Bright / Dark / Warm for the general tone of the preset gain previously selected. Warm attention mode, that saturates even clean.
Tone: refining the tone, very effective.
A switch selection effects Room / Hall / Pitch / Tremolo
Mix: ratio adjustment stage output gain-stage output effect. As its name suggests, adjusts his crude metering / modulated sound.
Amount: button tote. In reverb, it adjusts the depth, pitch, it sets the offset (from -3 to 4 tones), tremolo in, it sets the frequency.
Volume: ben ... What volume

It will be clear with each change of effect, be readjusted everything! And it was easier sound unworkable (too deep reverb, pitch while ugly, shrill fuzz, tremolo all skinny, ...) used a real effect. But once you've tamed the beast, we can work something out.

We are far from digital multi-effects with 128 settings instantly underfoot!


Should know what to expect: As with any multi-gear, each function is smaller than what would be a unit specifically dedicated.

We will not have the reverb from a Fender Twin but knowing how to be parsimonious in the Amount and the mix was very nice nice reverbs, deep snapping or playing with the tone.

The pitch quickly make little crappy but by pushing the third, we play Thin Lizzy alone! Okay, that's funny but it can quickly:)
More serious and strong opinions precedent, its use is very convincing chorus, the intro to Road to Nowhere out alone! And power chords, too, would find its weight. Pushing reflection, with the pitch at the lower third and mix in the middle, was a sound for power chords énooorme

The tremolo is nice being, again, fairly weighted on the settings, the tone also allowing some versatility.

The drive and the fuzz are quite cool, even putting the pedal in a loop. Again, change the gain adjustment requires full gear. All


is unlikely to say the least and frankly I do not know what they think the designer of this machine.

It takes some time to tame the beasts. I see this as a collection of pedal effects "Joker" for the little extra to go out in a timely manner or with a single switch, radically change its sound.

The effects are good but temperamental and I do not think this pedal suits everyone. It is like a box of Lego, which builds its heap but each turn.

Then, it will know who wants to bother the Pedalboard of something bulky, non-programmable which serves all of the 36 months ... To see
