DigiTech launches the Sound-Off and the Spring Tank pedals 28-Mar-12
DigiTech has announces the availability of two new pedals for the iStomp downloadable stompbox – the Sound-Off and the Spring Tank.
DigiTech says that with the Sound-Off they are broadening the range of the pedal line within the Stomp Shop app to now provide an easy to use utility pedal. The Sound-Off is a simple pedal that provides a momentary switch to completely shut the audio signal off when the button is pressed and brings it back when released. This on/off function allows guitarists to create a special effect similar to the pickup on/off switch found on some guitars.
Rob Urry, vice president, HARMAN Professional Division and general manager of Signal Processing and Amplifier Business Units, told Amped, "For guitarists who are looking to create a choppy effect that can be controlled at their feet, the Sound-Off is a flexible solution they can quickly add to their arsenal,nd because we are using digital download technology, we are able to add very unique pedals like the Sound-Off in the Stomp Shop frequently."
Digitech says that the Spring Tank pedal provides the rich spring reverb effect found in vintage amplifiers and on numerous classic and contemporary recordings. They tell us that, not only does the new offering produce a rich stereo spring reverb effect, it also produces the distinctive "boing" artifact unique to spring reverb trays that guitar players have come to know and love.
While the Spring Tank reverb pedal delivers the sound of a traditional spring reverb, Digitech says that it also takes the concept of a spring reverb a step farther. Unlike single knob reverb effects found in guitar amps, the Spring Tank provides four separate knobs to control Reverb level, Boing, Twang and Tone. The pedal has a cool, unusual design, morphing a traditional spring tank into the form of a classic stompbox.
Rob Urry had this to say, "This is one of many new pedals to come as we expand the iStomp pedal line. The pedals in the Stomp Shop offer a wide variety of high-quality tones and effects that musicians are looking for. The new Spring Tank pedal is no exception." About iStomp
