When I receive a pedal that fires me up and keeps me in my studio a few extra hours, I have to make a video for it ASAP just to let you all know what I found. The Pitch Bay by Earthquaker Devices is that pedal. Earthquaker is the most prolific pedal maker out there and their creations are blazing a path that has yet to be matched. This Pitch Bay is another genius design because it is not your usual pitch shifting device, it is a three part polyphonic harmonizer and distortion generator!
I am blown away with the Pitch Bay’s ability to make your instrument sound freaky, synthetic, and thick; all while keeping the harmonic structure musical and engaging. Hear the pedal’s effected sound in this video and you will hear possibilities, as I did, and create music you have not heard yet! The gain is a nice addition to this pedal, giving a new gritty dimension to a pitch shifter.
