Neat Christmas cover: Mr. Grinch

I want that guitar patch. Any idea what the signal path is? I hear an octave in there...

To me it sounds like a an Electro Harmonix POG or HOG. (But I've never played either, only heard clips online and on some studio recordings.)


EDIT: Maybe something like this:

Here's a thread from a few years ago where this was discussed, with a preset too:

https://forum.fractalaudio.com/threads/anyone-had-any-luck-replicating-the-pog.44405/#post-583926

However, that's focused on single-note stuff, and I'm under the impression that the POG does a better job than the Axe-Fx when it comes to tracking multiple notes at once (like the clean stuff in the Grinch video).


I didn't expect to be discussing the guitar tone in this video; it's interesting, but I thought the vocals were the highlight by far! (But I guess on this forum we're mostly guitarists on a tone quest.) :)

Bump for Christmas weekend in case anyone missed it the first time. I've been listening to this a few times a day this whole month and still really enjoying it.

Our band has added this to our set list. Our singer doesn't quite have the same set of pipes as the guy in the video, but he still belts it, and the crowd eats it up.
