The new Epitome delivers three of the most popular effects from three of Electro Harmonix’s best-selling products, in one compact pedal. Though designed to work together, the effects in the Epitome can also be used independently with individual footswitches for each. Dedicated, straight forward controls for all parameters mean there is no need to scroll through setting menus.

The Micro POG, which is first in the effects chain, features controls for Dry, Octave Up and Sub Octave. A Rate knob in the Stereo Electric Mistress section controls the master modulation speed while the Flanger and Chorus knobs control the depth of those effects. An LED pulsates to visually represent the Rate. The Holy Grail Plus ends the chain and provides Spring, Hall or Room reverb, as well Flerb (flanging plus reverb), selectable with a four-position switch. Blend controls the mix of dry and wet signal. The Amount control affects different parameters depending on the reverb type chosen. With Hall and Spring it controls reverb time and in the Room setting it controls damping. When Flerb is selected Amount controls the modulation rate. The Shimmer pushbutton re-routes the effects so that the Stereo Electric Mistress is at the end of the chain and the Holy Grail Plus only affects the Micro POG’s octaves. Retail price: $491.84.
