Best pedal I've ever bought!
SebKell, 10.02.2020
This great little pedal allows me to switch between different tunings within seconds. I like to play heavy music and play songs of different bands who use different tunings (As I lay dying, Parkway Drive, Slipknot, ...). I never have to switch guitars, I only have to turn one knob.

The sound stays very clear and true when you droptune up to 3 or 4 steps. The pedal is very easy and intuitive to use. The build quality is great (complete metal casing).

Awesome Little Pedal
Apoplexia, 14.04.2020
I bought this pedal in order to mitigate the want/need to try out an 8-string guitar, as this is much more affordable and is easily the best-sounding polyphonic pitch shifter pedal on the market, out of all the videos i have watched on Youtube.
I also wanted to use to emulate a bass guitar, as that is also costly and takes up room i don't necessarily have.

I just got it and tried it out and i quite like it! The tracking is very smooth and responsive, although i do hear more artifacts when playing chords then i did on the reviews i watched online, but it happens more with chords that are dissonant or out of tune.

I noticed that when i hear the acoustic string noise of my guitar while playing with the drop tuning on, it can sound pretty weird, but the human ear is that sensitive that even when the faintest sound is out of tune we definitely hear it. Playing louder or through headphones eliminates this problems of course!

I'm just disappointed that there are more artifacts the lower the note being played, both by shifting the pitch further down and by playing lower notes on the guitar even as less drastic settings.

Bass Player review
Curto, 20.01.2018
I love this pedal! I've used it to "transpose" a song on the fly when the singer decided to change keys at the last minute. Super easy! Took all the guess work out around the faster chord changes. Yes it changes your sound a bit, but not really that noticeable in the mix. It would be almost completely unnoticeable if you were using other FX (like overdrive or distortion or a thick chorus ... etc) in conjunction with The Drop.
I've also used it as a drop tuner with my 4 string. Just set the switch to momentary and when you want a lower D or C or B or whatever ... just stomp and hold. Not as crisp as playing a 5 string but a handy alternative to a 4 string with a Hipshot D-tuner.
And I've also used it as an octaver pedal - which I really like the sound of. I've found the TC Electronic Sub'n'Up coloured my sound too much. This is a octaver with your clean tone 50/50 mix. Very thick and tidy.
So used as an octaver - fantastic!
A sparingly used "5th string" addition / Hipshot D-tuner alternative - very useful!
And entire "transposed" songs - doable. You might be the only one who notices the change in your tone.

Does what it says
Bftundra23, 24.01.2020
I'm just a casual, at home player. I mostly just do covers of songs I like over a variety of genres and noodle around for fun. In the past I've just had multiple guitars set up in different tunings so I can switch between songs quickly. With the digitech drop though, now I can easily down tune with a simple knob. I haven't noticed and latency or sound quality issues until you get super low. Then it seems to lose a little. But i usually dont go much lower than drop b, so it fits my needs perfectly. Build quality is excellent. Overall happy with my purchase.
