    Mark Rizzo (Monster player) uses the Digitech pedal Live with Soulfly and I assume also on Cavalera brothers tours.

    Max's prototype Reaper ESP is sweet - wanted to check one out for years now. Listening to him clank his rings against the guitar noids me out though... all I hear is >chip< >scratch< >chip<...

    Dig that they use the drop and don't seem to have any issues. Thanks for the link.

    Depends what you want to do with it. I use a Whammy DT live to alter tunings from E down to D, C & B, there is some slight change in tone when you get -5 but an audience is really not going to spot it. I've also used the detune in the Kemper, I'd say the Digitech is fractionally better but then it is a unit that dedicates its whole processing power to just that one thing.

    I've also used it to create guitar backing tracks for in-ear playback systems, it works but is not something that I'd want publically released.

    Ultimately, it's a tool like anything else and you have to weigh up practicality against purism.

    I’ll answer that one. I went down the « different guitar for different tuning » road and just got tired of it. At one point, it was the unique reason to buy more guitars, which was, in my own specific case, ridiculous. I got tired of the need for specific strings for specific scale with specific pickups, etc. You get the idea. I realized I only like playing with a specific string gauge, in standard Eb and that’s it. And not having 7 different guitars that only came out if the case once a month to play that song in C.

    These days, I only use the Drop once in a while without the need for anything else. So, YMMV.

    ... and I don’t feel inauthentic for a second.

    This is what I would've posted on this thread, nearly word-for-word. More guitars = more options. It's also nice to have a hard-tail guitar or two lying around so you can mess with different tunings on the fly. The "Toss a Coin to your Witcher" cover video I did recently had a guitar in dropped A#, because I could switch to it on the fly easily
