The Drop

Polyphonic Drop Tune Pedal

RRP: £119.00 inc VAT

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.

Shifting Guitar Tunings with the DigiTech Drop

Carting too many guitars to the gig can cause you and your bandmates a real headache. Not only is it hard work to keep on top of all of those different tunings, it can really take up some real-estate on stage (as well as give you more things to carry around!). 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. Based on the Whammy IV pitch-shift technology, the Drop enables easy retuning of your guitar without reaching for a machinehead or tuner. The Drop also features an Octave + Dry mode for 'octaver' effects as well as a momentary feature for fast trills and roller-coaster pitch dips. The DigiTech Drop is ideal for touring bands as it forgoes the need to travel with multiple guitars in different tunings.
