Pitch Shifter Pedals

Pitch shifter pedals do exactly what they say on the tin in terms of how they work. Letting you shift the pitch of your guitar by any chosen interval, a popular way of using a pitch shifter is to mix the effect with your dry signal to create harmony. But you can also use a pitch shifter pedal to change your overall tuning, something that the Digitech Drop pedal is specifically designed for.

Many brands produce their own pitch shifter pedals, but the aforementioned Digitech are perhaps the most synonymous with this type of effect. The immensely popular Digitech Whammy pedal has been used by countless guitar players over the years, but none more notorious than Tom Morello of Rage Against The Machine. With an expression pedal format, this unit can be manipulated with your foot to give you control of the effect on-the-fly.

The Electro Harmonix Pitch Fork is another strong contender, seen on the pedalboards of many guitarists. The EHX Pitch Fork may lack expressive functionality, however its low-latency tracking and compact design makes it a more ergonomic choice for players looking to save precious real-estate on their boards.
