Only thing that bothered me is hearing the strings and the amp at the same time at lower volumes.
I´ve been using for almost a year with an HD 400 and works fine, going 1/2 or a full step down you shouldn´t have problems.
using it for over a year n half, plus some extra years before with the morpheus.
I curently playing using a Line6 Firehawk. The pedal is the first thing on my chain, then the pedal board. This pedal changes the tune of the guitar (so basically treat it like a guitar), so whatever you do, place it first in any chain. You dont want to "drop" the frequencies of a delay/distorsion/chorus/ect.
for only 1-2 semitones you would barely notice any drastic change in tone. This pedal drops down everything, including pick attack, harmonics ect, reason why the lower you go the "worse" it gets as all the high end harmonics wont be there anymore.
Also I notice when I use it for 5 semi-tones (making a 7 string), it works best with a dedicated EQ patch for it to compensate for the loss in high freq
Same here on the HD500X.
I have a C# tuning preset for learning old Black Sabbath riffs, and it works quite well.
As said though, gotta tweak eq to compensate for high end loss, roll off some low end to tighten it up a bit.
Thanks for the clarifications. I don't plan on going down like a 7 string so it shouldn't be a problem.
I want to play periphery songs but myguitar is instandard. What's the best way with this pedal?
well they have a lot of Drop C 6 string songs?. It really depends what Periphery tracks in particular.
If you want to do Drop C, then put your guitar into Drop D then active the pedal to take you down to C.
you start going too low and the sound will suck bigtime. Like in that case just using a 7 or 8 string would be easier.
I have two six strings, one tuned to E standard and one tuned to Drop D. I also have two seven strings, one tuned to B standard and one tuned to Drop A. This way using the Drop pedal I can cover most any standard or drop tunings I might want.
I have one and I use it all the time. However as others have said, you don't really want to go down more than 3 half steps since your tone will begin to suffer.
