DIG DEEP is an octave down pedal which tracks lower strings only and generates a monophonic bass line without affecting upper strings. It can be useful to add depth and body to a thin guitar sound or simulate the presence of a bass guitar.
It comes with 2 knobs:
CLEAN – controls the level of the dry signal
DEPTH – controls the level of the lower octave
It tracks accurately playing arpeggios or strumming chords, even complex chords and inversions.
DIG DEEP responds well to most types of electric or electronic instruments who have similar octave range of a 6-strings guitar.
The highest note it can track depends on instrument type and frequency response but is usually found around E3 (2nd fret of open D string). Volume of generated bass tone goes progressively down with respect to note frequency, the higher the note and lower the volume. After E3 (approx) the octave down effect disappears.
For 6-strings guitars drop tuning of LOW E string or alternate tunings are possible without generating tracking issues. By the way with very low tunings tracking errors could happen.
BARITONE GUITARS and 7-STRINGS GUITARS: the pedal can only work if modded to suit these type of instruments.
BASS GUITARS: pedal is not suited for bass guitars
ACOUSTIC GUITARS: the pedal doesn’t work with acoustic guitars
