I've been lurking on the site for a little while now, and I've been learning a lot. Now I am hoping that I can get some helpful advice. I've just agreed to take on what might be the oddest gig of my life to date. I'm going to perform live as the "house bassist" accompanying a DJ... no - not a hip-hop DJ... and not a rap-metal DJ... We're talking about a good old-fashioned bar mitzvahs, sweet-16, retirement parties, etc DJ! Aside from anything else you might think, the real trick here is that when the DJ switches songs, there is sometimes a slight shift in the pitch from one track to the next. There is only so much I can do with bending strings to compensate - ya know? So I'm thinking I should be able to buy a pitch-shifter pedal with a smooth-rotating pitch control knob - to keep within arm's reach on top of my amp. I hoping that way I'll be able to make adjustments to my pitch when necessary. But, I've never really had any experience with pitch-shifter pedals, so I'm not even sure this will work the way I'm thinking it will. Any advice on whether this seems like a good approach...? If so, what unit to buy...? Or if this whole debacle sounds like a bad idea to begin with I'm committed to do a show for these guys this coming Saturday might, so any feedback would be awesome! Thanks in advance - C.C.
