Digitech has announced two new stompbox effects for bass and guitar to their lineup including the The Drop and a reissue of the DOD Envelope 440. Both pedals feature true bypass and 9-volt operation.
The DOD Envelope Filter 440 is a new take on the vintage pedal with upgrades including true bypass, a 9-volt power adapter jack, and a Voice switch. The Voice switch toggles between Up and Down settings to emphasize different frequency bands. Digitech suggests that the down position dishes out a big dub sound on bass. The pedal also has Level and Range knobs to adjust teh sensitivity and range of the envelope’s sweep.
The Drop is a dedicated polyphonic drop tune pedal for both bass and guitar that lets users drop their tuning down from one semitone to a full octave. Drawing its algorithm from the company’s Whammy DT pedal, the Drop has eight drop tune and pitch shifting intervals to choose from. It also has an Octave+Dry mode to blend in your original signal with the note an octave down. The Momentary/Latching switch allows for players engage the effect by stepping on and releasing the footswitch for a hammer-on or pull-off effect.
The Digitech DOD Envelope Filter 440 will be available in June with a retail price of $149.95 while The Drop will be available in July with a retail price of $249.95.
