DigiTech Launches Spring Tank Reverb and Sound Off Pedals for iStomp

The Spring Tank pedal provides the rich spring reverb effect and the Sound-Off is a simple pedal that provides a momentary switch.

Salt Lake City, UT (March 28, 2012) -- DigiTech today announced that the new Spring Tank reverb pedal for the iStomp is now available from the DigiTech Stomp Shop app on iTunes. The Spring Tank pedal provides the rich spring reverb effect found in vintage amplifiers and on numerous classic and contemporary recordings. Not only does the new offering produce a rich stereo spring reverb effect, it also produces the distinctive “boing” artifact unique to spring reverb trays that guitar players have come to know and love.

While the Spring Tank reverb pedal delivers the great sound of a traditional spring reverb, it also takes the concept of a spring reverb a step farther. Unlike single knob reverb effects found in guitar amps, the Spring Tank provides four separate knobs to control Reverb level, Boing, Twang and Tone. The pedal has a cool, unusual design, morphing a traditional spring tank into the form of a classic stompbox.

The Spring Tank pedal is the 26th and latest pedal added to the Stomp Shop app for use with the iStomp downloadable pedal. The Stomp Shop debuted in January 2012 with an initial compliment of 22 pedals ranging in price from $1.99 to $9.99. Each month DigiTech continues to add new pedals to the pedal line to bring guitar players fresh new options. Using the digital download format of the iStomp allows DigiTech to put many new and unusual pedals into guitar players’ hands vey quickly.

“This is one of many new pedals to come as we expand the iStomp pedal line. The pedals in the Stomp Shop offer a wide variety of high-quality tones and effects that musicians are looking for. The new Spring Tank pedal is no exception,” stated Rob Urry, vice president, HARMAN Professional Division and general manager of Signal Processing and Amplifier Business Units.

The Spring Tank pedal is now available for only $0.99. This special launch price will run through April 30, 2012, after which it will move to its regular price of $9.99.

Also new is the Sound-Off pedal for the iStomp downloadable stompbox. DigiTech is broadening the range of the pedal line within the Stomp Shop app to now provide an easy to use utility pedal. The Sound-Off is a simple pedal that provides a momentary switch to completely shut the audio signal off when the button is pressed and brings it back when released. This on/off function allows guitarists to create a special effect similar to the pickup on/off switch found on some guitars.

“For guitarists who are looking to create a choppy effect that can be controlled at their feet, the Sound-Off is a flexible solution they can quickly add to their arsenal,” stated Rob Urry, vice president, HARMAN Professional Division and general manager of Signal Processing and Amplifier Business Units, “and because we are using digital download technology, we are able to add very unique pedals like the Sound-Off in the Stomp Shop frequently.”

The Sound-Off pedal is now available from the DigiTech Stomp Shop at an introductory price of only $0.99. This special price will run through April 30, 2012. After the introductory period it will change to its regular price of $1.99.
