Digitech Drop press release
DigiTech and UK distributor Sound Technology Ltd are pleased to announce the Drop pedal. 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.
The DigiTech Drop uses an advanced polyphonic drop tune algorithm and features just two simple controls.
The Effect selector knob chooses between 9 different settings, transposing the guitar signal down between 1 and 7 semi-tones, by a full octave, or by a full octave with the dry signal added in.
The Momenary 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.
The DigiTech Drop features aTrue bypass signal path to preserve your signal, and comes with a 9VDC power supply included.
The DigiTech Drop is expected to ship in the UK in July/August 2014 with a price to be confirmed at the time of writing.
