Perfect for the lazy guitarist who does not want to downtune
Pete-plays-guitar, 17.01.2021
Having owned a few pitch sifters over the last years (many years) I was a little bit dubious on the quality of the pitch shift and expected it to be a bit glitchy. However, this unit maintains a clear sound and digital-sounding-free (well at least to about 4 or 5 semitones. Lower does start to sound a bit weird, but I never go that low. So for drop E flat or drop D (or even C at a push) it sounds great in both clean or in high gain. Actually in high gain no-one would have the slightest clue that your sound was being dropped digitally.
Actually more than just lazy, it is actually it has a permanent place on my pedal board, as it is just so damn easy to move to a drop key with out having to tune the whole guitar again and possible adjust the truss rod. I have never used the momentary function, I just keep it set at the desired drop. The display is quite nice that it is not just a rotary knob with the text around the knob there is an LED for each semitone drop, do a super clear indication of of the drop setting you have selected. This pedal is also very useful for a clean octave drop. Really can't fault it.

Drop your tone easily!
Mark DeW, 30.04.2021
If you like playing in multiple tunings, but don't want to constantly tune your guitar or have separate guitars for each tuning then this pedal is for you! It's built like a tank and comes with its own power supply. I like to put it before the tuner in order to see how the tuning is registered. Great product all the way around!

Bass Player review
Curto, 20.01.2018
I love this pedal! I've used it to "transpose" a song on the fly when the singer decided to change keys at the last minute. Super easy! Took all the guess work out around the faster chord changes. Yes it changes your sound a bit, but not really that noticeable in the mix. It would be almost completely unnoticeable if you were using other FX (like overdrive or distortion or a thick chorus ... etc) in conjunction with The Drop.
I've also used it as a drop tuner with my 4 string. Just set the switch to momentary and when you want a lower D or C or B or whatever ... just stomp and hold. Not as crisp as playing a 5 string but a handy alternative to a 4 string with a Hipshot D-tuner.
And I've also used it as an octaver pedal - which I really like the sound of. I've found the TC Electronic Sub'n'Up coloured my sound too much. This is a octaver with your clean tone 50/50 mix. Very thick and tidy.
So used as an octaver - fantastic!
A sparingly used "5th string" addition / Hipshot D-tuner alternative - very useful!
And entire "transposed" songs - doable. You might be the only one who notices the change in your tone.

Best pedal I've ever bought!
SebKell, 10.02.2020
This great little pedal allows me to switch between different tunings within seconds. I like to play heavy music and play songs of different bands who use different tunings (As I lay dying, Parkway Drive, Slipknot, ...). I never have to switch guitars, I only have to turn one knob.

The sound stays very clear and true when you droptune up to 3 or 4 steps. The pedal is very easy and intuitive to use. The build quality is great (complete metal casing).
