  • Coolest pedal in my setup

    As reviewed by Galen Slabaugh on 10/4/2010

    The freeze works as advertised. But just like any pedal in your setup, placement will make a difference on the results you get. If you place the freeze at the end of the line, you will get a thin sound due to the analog-to-digital-to-analog conversion. However, if it is the first pedal it will sound like your holding a power chord forever! Impressive sustain. I tried it with my POD X3 Live FX loop, but it sounded a bit hollow. You can get some really funky sounds depending on when you press the sustain button and what you are playing. Harmonics and high pinch notes create some wierd and wild tones. I found that it can fillout acoustic guitar by pressing the hold with every chord change. You get a sort of pad sound while playing that adds some fullness. Not sure how well the pedal will hold up to constant switching, but the possibilities for this pedal are endless.

  • A Unique and Innovative Pedal

    As reviewed by Nathan Edwards on 5/9/2011

    True to its name, the EHX "Freeze" gives the effect of taking a moment of sound and freezing it in time. The best way I can describe using this pedal is like using a damper pedal on a piano, except that the sound sustains endlessly. It can create some really gorgeous tones and can give a solo player many options for creating chord "pad" sounds to play over. As a down-side, the standard pedal button is not ideal because the use of the pedal requires continuous pushing of the button. This results in a lot of clicking sounds if you are in a quiet environment. It is also perhaps a bit pricey for its single functionality, but this is to be expected from such a unique pedal from a reputable company.

  • True to Its Word

    As reviewed by Michael Wright on 1/24/2012

    Easiest pedal to use, period. Works exactly as eHx advertized it would, and opens up so many more options for writing parts. I don't see how anyone couldn't find a place for this in their sound. I've had it a month or so now, and it seems sturdy enough (as does everything else Electro-Harmonix makes), and have no reason to doubt its endurance. On top of that, it takes up very little room on a pedal board. Highly recommended for anyone.
