BIGSBY Pedal Guitar Pedal By Gamechanger Audio


Pedal Manufacturer

Gamechanger Audio


The BIGSBY Pedal by Gamechanger Audio is a revolutionary polyphonic pitch shifter pedal designed to reproduce the string bending and vibrato effects produced by the BIGSBY Tremolo arm and other traditional tremolo systems. It is powered by the formidable SHARC® Audio Processor and runs a hybrid algorithm specifically developed by Gamechanger Audio to achieve smooth polyphonic real-time pitch-shifting at low intervals while preserving the natural timbre and sound of electric and acoustic string instruments, including baritone and bass guitars, guitars, mandolins, and banjos.

The pedal features a unique spring-loaded foot-pedal design, allowing for upwards and downwards pitch-bending movements, and is "always on," with activation achieved by stepping on the foot-pedal. The algorithm ensures smooth transitions between the DRY and WET (pitched) signals, enabling seamless incorporation of pitch-bends into complex picking patterns, lead, and melodic lines. The pedal also includes a DETUNE parameter to emulate the imperfections and dissonant properties of traditional mechanical string- bending hardware, resulting in vibrato effects almost indistinguishable from those of a conventional tremolo arm.

Additional features and modes of the BIGSBY Pedal include AUTO mode for LFO- controlled pitch, BLEND control for dynamic chorus and harmonizer sounds, external footswitch input for latching mode, expression output for controlling other audio gear, full MIDI CC and PC control over all parameters, preset recalling, and clock syncing.
