Nice effects and quality

02.10.2014
Electro Harmonix Holy stain is a multi-effect unit with analog drive circuts. It is a very good choice if you want to rty out new effects. The drive is quite nice and the fuzz is acceptable too, the only down side is that you can use only one at once, and switch between with your fingers, but that is not a huge issue. The effects are average quality but usable, like for example, reverb is good and very usable, but tremolo seems to add some sort of a slight gain, so you dont get completely clean sound. Pitch shifting is decent and responsive, only limited up to a 3rd and down to a 4th, i would like to see a full range of octave on this one. Overall great bargain for the price, fun pedal to play with.

It is not a multi-effects

AngelG, 20.11.2012
Several effects but you can not use all at once. It really has no presets, it's a "frankstein" that you can force to be one of several things.

I use it as a reverb, very good. You have two types to choose from. The rest of the effects are a tremolo (well, with a bit of reverb automatically added) and a fixed pitch harmony that is a bit extravagant.

You can add a pedal to control effects that I have not tried but I do not find it too interesting. These above effects are digital.

At the same time, the analog part of the effect can be used, consisting of a clean sound, fuzz and overdrive switch. You can not change between them by stepping, you have to choose one. That makes me use it in clean, because otherwise I would never have that possibility on the scene. A tone filter (warm, dark, bright) that I use in bright, and a tone control.

Pushbuttons: one activates or deactivates the pedal, and the other switches the digital effect.

Conclusion: with this pedal could have done something much more practical. It is not that it sounds bad, the distortions are very good, too much volume to use them switching them, without being able to balance them, also, with the sound in bypass.
As it is relatively cheap, it is worth as an alternative to an individual pedal.

A master volume control for the distortions, (the tone filter is left over), and switches to enter the effects and distortions by pressing the pedal, would be a success. Still, it's an interesting pedal (the leftover pitch)
