This pedal came out Thursday 9/28/17.
Yesterday...it don't get more newer then that!!!
So what's the big deal. Harmonizing pedals have been around for years.
Not this one.
It harmonizes in an actual Scale.
Up until now all other pedals did parallel
In short every note you played was treated as the tonic or your root note. If you played a G note you have a 4th to the G but if you moved then to an A which is the 2nd...the pedal treated the note as if you were playing in A and gave you the 4th to that A.
So it gave you a very limited use of the pedal.
The sound of the unit is excellent. Considering the tech the price is cheap.
I ordered one. It may take months to get. lol The first few months they make them go out to key countries and key stores. Then after a month or so all the video reviewers have them and the backorders build. I do have an inside track but that but I will still have a long wait.
I got word that I am now top of the short list.
TIME TO BRAG!!!
I just want to mention that as usual I have the FIST REVIEW...
Nothing worse then buying a pedal only to find out you could have got a better pedal only because you stumbled on it a few weeks later.
SO I GO OUT OF MY WAY EVERY WEEK TO MAKE SURE YOU DO NOT GET SCREWED!!!
Please give your friend s a heads up about SBS. We are all in this together!!!
OK I JUST GOT MINE
I will need a bit of time with it.
After an hour with it I can definitely see the potential.
As with Octave pedals the 'voicing' is made by reading your guitars notes and converting them into a different pitch. One thing none can do is convert the added notes into the sound 'your guitar'.
So I find the artificial sound adequate but not stellar.
Fortunately the brand is very popular so your local Bricks & Mortar store should soon have one to check out.
As for me I did not expect better nor worse as it not so different then their octave pedals.
So this is definitely a keeper.
