Value For Money : Excellent
Effects: reverb amplified three modes: Spring, Hall, Flerb.
Technology: stereo / analog elements of the pedal.
Connections: Power or 9V battery manufacturer.


Configuration: Ultra-simple one button to turn and a 3 position switch, (Spring, Hall, Flerb) alumage true bypass on / off.
Manual: existing but unnecessary
Editing the sounds:
- Simple
- 3 modes activated by a switch 3 positions:
- Spring: sound mix between a high reverb / chorus and a slightly amplified
- Hall reverb amplified: gave up the sound effect of a sound "of a boathouse" or a very large concert hall.
- Flerb chorus, the effect spills over a small flange, in the minds of other model from EHX, as Polychorus, or the simple chorus (NIRVANA).


The effective sound effects, the point we seek an amplified reverb effect, the most natural, realistic hope, while giving power to its sound.



- Here is the configuration of my pedal: T REX MOLLER (Overdrive / boost) + EHX Holy Grail EHX Memory Man + 2 (analog delay) or tape echoplex = sound in RADIOHEAD OK COMPUTER period, or 80-90 or even early U2 CRANBERRIES early for fans of pop rock. NIRVANA sound to the level of rock ballads, if you use the flerb. If you own a Gretsch guitar brand, and you only use the EHX Holy Grail, equipped with an overdrive, your configuration took his time about NEIL YOUNG 90, WELD album. You can do it all anyway, even blues, solos by penta, provided you have the proper amp.

- I like the three configurations, but I use a single configuration HALL with a knob for adjusting the pedal to 1:00 p.m.: sound effect "boathouse".


I use it for one month, I tried a BOSS SPACE ECHO, a clone of legendary pedal at ROLLAND (why not!) But good too digital, too cold, it is the same for EHX CATHEDRAL, GP gave amplified reverb with several sub modes, too cold, too analog for my taste, or the T-REX Tonebug Reverb, Analog, but not giving enough power to sound so there was only one alternative, the EHX Holy Grail nano. The Holy Grail EHX Holy Stain + or nothing to any one who wants to remain a powerful and natural. Also not to use certain functions, see 90% of the pedal is a risk to take, only the HOLY GRAIL NANO gave me real satisfaction. Knowing that I did not want anything complex one in terms of settings, while concervant natural sound and powerful, this pedal is needed. A good quality / price ratio in my opinion and obviously I do it again this choice in a heartbeat.
