Electro-Harmonix Holy Stain
The notice below describes perfectly the craft, its possibilities and its defects ... Except that these defects are of great benefit for me!


It can hardly be simpler:
- A floor disto: clear / drive / fuzz (a kind of gain adjustment knob with three positions so) - I see no reason why he went to call the fuzz distortion and super fat slobbery good but it sounds really great for Me. The tone control knob with a 3-position color "bright / warm / dark" is very effective.
- A floor effect: two ultra-cavernous reverb, tremolo fun, excellent pitch a caricature.


All that said barh2_0 below is correct: the effects are étrangissimes and sound like nothing else, the bug is particularly difficult to master because the distortion stage sounds REALLY STRONGER when one engages drive / fuzz that plain making it necessary to lower the volume and it is not suitable for all uses.


I've had a year and a half. It is the basis of my guitar sound, to put it simply. His room reverb pushed forward in both my 600 champion gives my Jaguar sound from outer space that I love.

This is by far the best pedal I've owned it and my stereo memory man are the basis of my pedalboard and my sound in general.

Electro-Harmonix Holy Stain
2 reverbs, a tremolo, a pitch shifter. An outlet of expression pedals (as beginners are not too careful with that).
Mix, Amount, Volume, Tone, Color, Dirt. 100% analog. Format XO, standard 9v power supply.
For the price, it's IM-BA-TTABLE.


The config is surprising to beginners. We can not combine the 4 effects: two reverbs, pitch and Tremolo.

Although found on the rverbe Tremolo and a little on the pitch

You must read the manual, because there are rglages that can not be invented, especially if you want to use the expression pedals: Amount button to the max for example.


The two rverbes are extraordinary. A bit like the Holier Grail, although a little too pronounced.
It binds to AC to begin and say that ADI, the price is amortized.
We also said that the distos are too much, especially the Fuzz and the pitch, blah blah.
It is by connecting to a PDAL Espression that is the total exploded.
The pitch shifter is amazing. It's bliss, provided that the mix with the dry signal as it has a latency lgre. With the drive, it's amazing: Sorrow Gilmourn is in the pocket.

The Tone knob is super efficient, egg carc'est true that the Drive and Fuzz effects are quite brutal and the tone can make adjustments.
The tremolo is pure happiness, surtoiut with the expression pedals. Can be assayed speed trem and it makes gniaux effects.
It is true that we must know the box and re-rgler if you change the volume of dirt.

So do the math: four fabulous effects in this little magic box format XO.


It's been a year since I have it.
For me, the Holy Grail has become one of mesboites EHX prfres, and I possde wagon (17, the best!).
DEFINITIONS and the best price for quality throughout the range.
I love this box. Maximum score, a condition of investing in an expression pedals and good HP, because it sends a serious bass and Satus. PDAL In expression, Line6 EX1 works pretty well, but the top the top is the Moog EP2 just devantla MGear M-Audio EXP.
