    Bottom Dwellers - I stumbled upon the above referenced stomp box, and wanted feed back on it. I play in two cover bands, one my bass is tuned down a step at all times. But in the other, only a few songs are tuned down, and the guitarist is a rather impatient chap, and doesn't want to afford me the time to detune, or switch basses.

    So the the long and the short is I would love to get feed back on the stomp box, and I would also appreciate any other suggestions on the detune issue.

    Thanks !

    You don't need a new stomp box, you need a new guitarist if the current one can't wait 10 seconds for you to switch basses.

    Any excuse is a good one if it motivates getting a new toy though. ;)

    The pitch box is warbly when it's detuned. The only solution that I've found to solve this dilemma is a Line6 M5/M9/M13.

    tell your guitarist to wait ten seconds!

    I had one for a minute and wasn't a fan (too warbly/artificial)

    I use my trusty EHX HOG if need be but my guitarist told me ONCE to hurry....I told him to hurry up with his solo....

    we both came to terms!

    I have a bunch of pedals and rack units that I could use for detuning. They really vary as far as tone quality. Most do get a little warbly. I have a Digitech guitar multi pedal that actually sounds good.

    The Morpheus Droptune pedal looked like it would do exactly what you want it to do. For cheap, I have a Behringer knockoff of a Boss pitch shifter that has a better drop down tone than my Boss pedals with pitch shift have.
