WTB: Digitech drop sorted

Post by Reg18 »

Looking for a Digitech Drop, ideally in exchange for one of my Fuzz/boost pedals but will consider what ever is out there.
Or possible a Whammy 5, apparently the bass Whammy tracks even better on guitar too so open to that as well.

Actually this might not be needed now, I tried the new Poly Capo in my line 6 HX Stomp and it seems to track pretty good!
Not sure if it’s as good as the Drop though, anyone tried both?

Haven't tried both but when I had the Drop I got a little annoyed at the slight latency so decided bringing another guitar to gigs was a better option.
Tone wise though, I thought it was very good with minimal high end loss.

i liked the drop for anything a whole step down,any more than that was a slider scale of yuk.Seemed to work best with a modeller and hated anything a bit ragged like a fuzz.talking tone here.tracking seemed good.fantastic octaver,but thats prob because you had your tone underneath padding it out.

Im tuning down to drop C, so not a big drop. My line 6 seems to be ok so far on the poly capo setting. I’ll try it at a band practice first. Save me setting up one of my guitars to handle drop C for a one off gig.

For sure,that was my limit for the tone loss,and what it saves on hassle is certainly worth it. Would be fine for live but no good when you in the intense scrutiny of at home blats

For those interested I tried the down tuning in the HX stomp and it tracked pretty well at a band practice today. The other guitarist was using a Digitech drop and both seemed to be about the same in terms of accuracy and tracking.
It feels a bit weird sometimes like a little lag or something and if you don’t have your guitar tuning pretty close to spot on it search’s for the closest note. Should be fine for this gig though.
