A controller designed to work with a variety of MIDI effects.

Villeurbanne, France (March 8, 2018) -- EvenMidi has launched the new Pitchy MIDI controller, a rugged footpedal designed to working in conjunction with these well-known effectors: Eventide H9 or PitchFactor; DigiTech Whammy 4; DigiTech Whammy 5/Bass; and DigiTech Whammy DT.

Using MIDI protocol, the Pitchy offers the opportunity for players to:

  • Recall all Whammy presets (Shallow & Deep included) on Eventide H9 or Pitchfactor by using only one preset (Pitchflex algorithm) with same feeling (encoder) as Whammy.
  • Use it with your expression pedal calibrated as you want
  • Recreate Ricochet effect with footswitch when you don't want to use an expression pedal
  • Make it works with all digitech Whammy with MIDI and all modes included (classic/chords for WH5/WHBass and Drop Tune for WHDT). Now, you can rack your whammy without losing the cool encoder scrolling sound :)

It’s not difficult to replace the wiring in your pickups, but it takes some finesse. Here’s a step-by-step guide.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. After numerous requests, this month we’ll have a closer look at changing wires on a single-coil pickup. As our guinea pig for this, I chose a standard Stratocaster single-coil, but it’s basically the same on all single-coil pickups and easy to transfer. It’s not complicated but it is a delicate task to not destroy your pickup during this process, and there are some things you should keep in mind.

The emotional wallop of the acoustic guitar sometimes flies under the radar. Even if you mostly play electric, here are some things to consider about unplugging.

I have a love-hate relationship with acoustic guitars. My infatuation with the 6-string really blasted off with the Ventures. That’s the sound I wanted, and the way to get it was powered by electricity. Before I’d even held a guitar, I knew I wanted a Mosrite, which I was sure was made of fiberglass like the surfboards the Beach Boys, Surfaris, and the Challengers rode in their off time. Bristling with space-age switchgear and chrome-plated hardware, those solidbody hotrod guitars were the fighter jets of my musical dreams. I didn’t even know what those old-timey round-hole guitars were called. As the singing cowboys Roy Rogers and Gene Autrey strummed off into the sunset, the pace of technology pushed the look and sound of the electric guitar (and bass) into the limelight and into my heart. Imagine my disappointment when I had to begin my guitar tutelage on a rented Gibson “student” acoustic. At least it sort of looked like the ones the Beatles occasionally played. Even so, I couldn’t wait to trade it in.
