Digitech has made an innovative device to instantaneously drop tune your guitar on stage without having to touch your tuning knobs or switch guitars. 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. 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.
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
