School's out! Woohoo!

Basically, the Digitiech Drop does the following:
  • A polyphonic, multi-mode downward pitch-shifter guitar effect pedal
  • Settings 1-7 provide 1 to 7 semitones of downward pitch shifting
  • 2 additional settings provide octave down shifting with or without dry signal
  • Hold/Tap switch lets you select momentary or latching footswitch operation
  • True-bypass switching preserves your tone when the effect is bypassed

So, instead of getting a 7-string guitar for my chugga-chugga djent experiments, I could just choose my favorite guitar, plug into the Drop and choose how many semitones down I want. What I find amazing is that there is almost no tone degradation! One of the applications of the pedal is for floyd guitars so that instead of tuning down that would mess up their set up, they can just use this pedal.

Ah, ok. I think I have an Ocatvier or something on my mfx pedal, and wouldn't mind something that can harmonize, but in the long run I don't see myself using that stuff much. I've heard of djent, but no idea what it sounds like.

Glad you got something you really like. Now get a guitar to go with it. Your telly is lonely.

Thanks! The Drop is just nit an octaver, it goes down in semitone increments.

I still haven't found the next guitar that really catches me. I would like to have an LP type guitar next but not a Gibson as I can't afford a good one. I think I wanted the Charvel Desolation DS1 but sonebidy bet me to it at GC.

Sounds cool! My RP360 has some pitch shifters, octavers and harmonizers built in, but I don't think I can move down in steps like that. That would be good for songs like Come as You Are which is standard D tuning.

The Firebird is a great value for a Gibson. Just sayin

I do not mean to be rude, I'm really not into the Firebird shape, neither Flying Vs and offsets.

Had PRS SE singke cut briefly, was great but I wasn't much into it, that I returned it.

I must admit though, if something REALLY strikes my fancy, I will pull out a credit card once in a while, or sell something .. or both

Grandpa did not need any fancy pedals to make that Tele sound good.
