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.

Good pedal, a little expensive, but a good tool for playing songs.
It took me a while to figure out why it was so noisy when I turned it on, it was a pain in the butt. I finally tried a power supply from another pedal and the noise disappeared. The power supply included is not very good in my opinion.

Purchased the pedal cause i play most songs e flat and some in in D. So i though that this pedal was very convienient. I liked it when i use if for practice at home along with my songs, you cant really notice in the mix when jamming at home. But when you are playing live or jamming live. tracking was an issue, along with latency, and when you hit the high strings in drop D it sounded very chorusy.
if this item wasnt so expensive i would have kept it.

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.

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.
 

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
