Incorporate pitch-shifting into your playing in new and creative ways!

The Bigsby Pedal is a revolutionary polyphonic pitch shifter pedal that is able to reproduce the string bending and vibrato effects produced by Bigsby Tremolos.

The Bigbsy Pedal runs a hybrid algorithm specifically developed by Gamechanger Audio to achieve smooth polyphonic real-time pitch-shifting at low intervals.

It has been painstakingly tweaked to preserve the natural timbre and sound of electric and acoustic string instruments.

The unique spring-loaded foot-pedal design makes it possible to incorporate pitch-shifting into your playing in new and creative ways.

The Gamechanger Bigsby is an always-on pedal: the only thing you need to do to activate it is to step on the foot pedal!

The algorithm ensures that transitions between the DRY and WET (pitched) signals are as smooth as possible.

This opens the door to new strumming patterns and beautiful lap-steel and slide-inspired licks that cannot be achieved with traditional tremolo systems!

Another key component of the Bigsby Pedal’s sound is the DETUNE parameter.

This carefully crafted algorithm is designed to emulate the imperfections and dissonant properties of traditional mechanical string-bending hardware.

As a result, the vibrato effects produced by the Bigsby Pedal are almost indistinguishable from those of a conventional tremolo arm!

The Bigsby Pedal combines tremolo arm pitch-bend emulation with a unique set of features that can take this pedal much further than simple pitch bend.


Gamechanger Audio Bigsby Pedal features:

• Revolutionary polyphonic pitch shifter pedal that emulates the tremolo arm string-bending and vibrato effects of Bigsby units.

• Spring-loaded rocking foot-pedal for upwards and downwards pitch-bending movements.

• Up to 12 semitone pitch-shifts in both directions (the pitch-bend range can be set separately for both directions).

• Foot-pedal and pitch-shift direction invert switch.

• The BLEND control allows for dynamic chorus and harmonizer sounds.

• DETUNE control for emulating the tuning instability of hardware tremolo systems.

• The AUTO mode enables an LFO that controls the pitch while the foot-pedal controls the depth.

• External footswitch input makes it possible to use the pedal in latching mode for typical pitch-shifter, octave, detune and chorus functionalities.

• Expression output gives the pedal control over other audio gear, either in conjunction with or separately from pitch-shifting.

• Full MIDI CC and PC control over all parameters, preset recalling, and clock syncing.

• High-quality buffered bypass and seamless transitions into and out of bypass.

• Power: 9V DC.

• Current Draw: 220mA.

• Dimensions: 8.6" X 4.3" X 3.3".
