It's the closest I can get to the gold standard among stompbox harmonists, the Boss PS-6, on my budget. The sound is less clean and the tracking is pretty weak, though straight pitch shifting is better than the harmonizer. As a gadget for nifty little bends, it has its uses. The biggest surprise of all is a classy detune function with gives a lovely thick, almost chorus-like effect to the guitar and fills up a sharp single-coil tone with a lot of warmth.
I have a pedalboard setup that utilizes two of these pedals.. And I've sat down with this and the Boss PS-6, and I was surprised that this tracks as good, if not better, than the Boss pedal.
Wanted a Boss PS-6 at first but I couldn't justify paying for it if I'm rarely gonna step on it. After watchin many youtube comparisons I found this may even be a better choice. I'm satisfied with it all in all, the tracking is okay and has the same features as the PS-6. The build is obviously not the best quality, but for the price I don't care :)
This pedal is amazing fun. I bought it just over a year ago from Gear 4 Music for around £34.99. The pedal has so many functions to play with, so many ways to alter the functions and it's hard to get bad sounds out of it. There's not too many pitch shifter pedals around, and this is the only one that I've tried, but I love it, and I love the price.
This pedal has a large variety of effects, all of which are very powerful, but a few of them sound very digital. If you dial in the pitch shifter or harmonist to too high or too low of a pitch it stops sounding like a guitar and starts sounding like a MIDI tone.
I love how there is a universal wet-dry dial to let you mix the signal however you want, because of this you can use the detune setting set to anywhere between -5 and -15 cents, and set the wet dry to about half way to give yourself a chorus effect, and you can do the same with the flutter to give yourself a flanger sound.
I use this pedal on Medicine Club's song 'Reform', primarily for it's pitch bend function (S bend on the Boss equivalent). Although it's got plastic coating and is about a quarter of the price of the Boss original, it's got a really nice sweep and it'll be staying on my board for a long time.
