SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – HARMAN’s DigiTech “Stomp-tember 2012” is in full swing with the introduction of the new Snake Charmer Tremolo for iStomp users. The Snake Charmer Tremolo delivers that classic, pulsating volume-modulated guitar sound heard on records like The Smiths’ “How Soon Is Now”, Creedence Clearwater Revival’s “Born on the Bayou,” the Black Keys’ “Howlin’ for You” and countless other hits.
“Tremolo is a guitar effect that all guitarists know and love,” noted Rob Urry, vice president, HARMAN Professional Division and general manager of Signal Processing and Amplifier Business Units. “The DigiTech Snake Charmer Tremolo gives every player access to this simple yet expressive effect, which can really take a song’s groove and feel to another level.”
The DigiTech Snake Charmer Tremolo gives guitarists complete control over every aspect of the tremolo effect. The Speed control regulates how slow or fast the tremolo pulsates, from a slow throb to a fast oscillation. Depth controls the degree of the effect, from a subtle modulation to volume completely on and off. Waveform changes the “shape” of the tremolo sound, from a choppy square wave on and off to a smoother pulsating sine wave and many other variations. It can even be turned into a panner using the exclusive Spread knob.
The DigiTech iStomp is an entirely new concept in guitar stompboxes that allows musicians to turn the iStomp into any pedal in the Stomp Shop online pedal store. Offering almost limitless sonic possibilities, the iStomp connects to an Apple iOS device where musicians can use the Stomp Shop app to load it with the e-pedal of their choice. The Stomp Shop is a free app and comes with two of the most popular requested pedals, the DigiTech Total Recall Delay™ and the DigiTech Redline Overdrive™. It gives access to more than 30 additional pedals that musicians can browse, try out and purchase, with more pedals added every month.
The DigiTech Snake Charmer Tremolo e-pedal will be available in September 2012 at an introductory price of $0.99. This introductory price will run through September 31, 2012. After the introductory period the price will change to $7.99.
The DigiTech iStomp is currently available at $179.95 suggested retail.
