This thing is pretty neat! I have two questions about it though...

1.) Think you can use this in front of a POD Toneport?

2.) It seems to tune the entire guitar - all 6 strings equally. What about tunings like Drop D where the low e string is the only string that is different than standard tuning?

it wont do drop d tuning because it shifts down any signal that comes through it, it cant recognize a string, the only use i i think is practical for it is using 10s and be able to play e flat, whole step down and tuning to drop d and going whole step down to drop c. even tough i heard the demostraion im 100 precent sure that the more you go down the less quality sound you will have.

1) Yes you can use it in front of a POD
2)It works on all strings you can go from e standard to drop d but you could go from e standard to d standard or from drop d to drop c...

IMHO these pitch shifter are not 100% on the spot. They shift your tuning but its not always in tune, they sound a little off and it sucks tone too. This is only neccessary if you have to switch tunig within a song. If you change tunings from song to song then it's much less of a hassle to switch to another guitar!

I agree with Zakk, better to save more and make yourself happy with another guitar laugh.gif

I read about this pedal in a magazine. I guess its somewhat cool and practical. But the tone pitch shifting won't be perfect. Of course it will only shift "everything" - it can't isolate certain strings etc. But for easy shifting to play different stuff without the need of "retuning" the guitar - its very practical! Yeah, you can put it in front of POD or anything really and it will work nicely!

That's what is interesting to me. It seems all the lessons I choose to learn are in different tunings! HUGE pain in the butt with a Floyd.
