SOS reports that DigiTech has repriced its iStomp FX pedal – a reprogrammable hardware effects pedal – cutting the price from about $150 to just $50. And, along with the hardware price cut, their 47 ‘e-pedal’ programs are now free.
Available e-pedals include overdrives, distortions, pitch shifters, delays, an acoustic simulation and even a Lexicon Hall reverb. The iStomp can be reconfigured via an iOS device using the iOS Stomp Shop App. Load up a new effect and the iStomp transforms into a new effects pedal.
Here’s the official iStomp intro video:
Here’s a review video from when the iStomp was originally released, via SonicState:
It looks like retailers are still showing the original price – so it’s not clear yet how quickly the new pricing will be available at retailers.
Check it out and let us know if you think the more affordable pricing makes the iStomp a more interesting option for electronic musicians!
