The DigiTech Drop is a dedicated polyphonic drop tune pedal that allows you to drop your tuning from one semitone all the way down to a full octave. Get down-tuned chunk without having to change guitars! The Drop also features a momentary/latching switch. With the switch set to momentary, you can turn the Drop into a true performance pedal. Fast trills and roller-coaster pitch dips are at the tip of your toes.

CONTROLS

• EFFECT SELECTOR KNOB- Selects which of the Drop effect settings is used when the effect is active.

• MOMENTARY ON/OFF SWITCH - Selects how the effect footswitch will operate. Setting this switch to ON will cause the footswitch to act as a momentary switch (the effect will be enabled or disabled only as long as the footswitch is pressed and held). Setting this switch to OFF will cause the footswitch to act as a standard latching on/off switch.

This is a staple on my bass pedal board for live shows, but also for practicing. It's freeing to be able to immediately change my tuning and work through ideas or learn songs, without the barrier of "I'll need to detune, and tune back" or leaving one guitar/bass in a different tuning, just grab it and go. I'll only go down as low as C Standard tuning, after that it'll start getting a bit muddled, but still valuable for what it is. A steep $270 at the time I bought it, but worth every penny given that I'm using it daily.

My band plays in a variety of tunings ranging from drop D to drop C. This pedal helps eliminate tuning downtime on stage or having to bring 2 other guitars. The tone starts to get funky when you drop it passed the 3rd semitone. It?ll start to pull notes in and out of pitch slightly depending on how aggressive your attack is (which for me gets pretty aggressive on stage). Overall a good pedal if you?re playing shows.

This pedal is amazing. I play a lot of songs ranging from a half step down to 2 steps down. Tone is great even lower than that. Just make sure you put it as the first pedal in your chain.
