The guys at Morpheus produce only two guitar pedal products and they are the Droptune and Capo. I am a big lover of those business’s use the motto that if you do something good then stick to it. It’s best to leave all the bells and whistle to somebody else because inevitably they will screw up a some point in time, probably more sooner rather then later. Today’s post will be about the Droptune Pedal.
From most of the reviews that I have been reading about the Droptune, most say that this product is VERY straight forward to use. Since most men are not all that inclined to read manuals, this is a big plus! It also doesn’t alter the quality of your sound that much. Some pedals are just plain brutal in this area.
On the back of this pedal, it comes with a USB port for the latest update patches from Morpheus as well as a trim button for guitar levels.
The Drop Tune pedal allows you to change keys, or shifts the pitch of your guitar on the fly at the touch of a knob. Metal guitarists can get that heavy drop-tuned tone without dealing with that floppy string buzz feel that you can get when you tune down, you guys know what I mean.
This is a relatively cheap way to achieve this kind of effect. I understand that there are other products out there that are much more dedicated like the Robot Guitar, Tronical Powertune, the Line6 Varix or the Transperformance tuning system called the Performer but they cost much more.
I also believe that if your a singer/guitarist and your voice is a little bit raw from last nights’ show, here you can drop your guitar tuning a pitch or two for that song that is played in an higher vocal range without having to physically tune down your guitar. Also if your play in a theatre band that has songs that are constantly changing keys, this would be a very useful tool to have in your belt!
The only thing that I don’t like is that you have to use a power adapter instead of batteries.
So does anyone out there use this pedal? If you do, please drop us a line about the pros and cons of it.
Keep on Jammin’
