    I'm getting the POG 2 later this week, and I was curious as to where you put yours? Before dirt or after? I'm guessing before but I could be wrong.

    Thanks in advance!

    I don't have one anymore, but when I did, I always had it right after the tuner, before anything else. It seemed to track best when fed a clean guitar signal. After a compressor would work well too. I tried it after distortion, but it seemed to make it sound "messy". You just might like it that way though. :D

    I use mine after dirt, before trems/delays/verbs.

    I only have the micropog, but I prefer it after drives.

    i liked my micro-POG pre-drives....

    i think this general rule kindof applies... if you want the octaves to sound more 'natural', as if you were actually just playing octave notes on the guitar, then go pre-drives... if you want it to sound more like an effect, then it goes after drives.... Either way, it usually sounds pretty good! Just keep it pre-delays and verbs so the tracking doesn't get messed up

    I think the pog sounded too "clean" before drives. I think it blends better after drives.. doesn't really make sense to me.. but.. yea.

    I think the pog before drives got too gritty and was not as pronounced as it is after drives.
