Is there any such thing as a pedal that chages your guitar pitch? I would use it for lowering my pitch so i don't have to tune down for songs (except for drop d)

Whammy pedals can i THINK.

but it'd sound pretty bad.
could just get another guitar and keep it in a different tuning.

cant some tuner pedals?

No? they tune, they dont detune.

look at the Digitech whammy or an octaver perdal. the whammy would be much more versatile, but the octaveer may have just what you want.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

Digitech RP range does (i bet everyone who posts about pedals is sick of me on about them, but they do have pitchshifters, up to two octaves higher and down to two octaves lower)

Yes it does. It sounds NOTHING like a guitar actually tuned down. The only way to down tune without actually tuning the guitar, and without sounding like crap is a hexaphonic MIDI pickup with some kind of interface, like the Line6 Variax guitar with a POD.

no, because then you sound like a sampled guitar.

the only real way to sound completly authentic without really detuning is to play in a room that is filled with atmosphere that is more dense than our normal air. this would cause sound to travel slower through it, thus making the pitch lower. (the opposite of breathing in helium)

But yea, TS, if you play in drop tunings primarily and don't need to switch often, why not just tune down? You mentioned that your guitar buzzes, but that can be fixed pretty easily...
G&L Tribute S-500 -> Ernie Ball VP -> Boss SD-1 -> Fulltone OCD -> Small Stone Phaser -> Danelectro Cool Cat Tremolo -> Boss DD-3 -> Boss RE-20 -> TC Electronic Hall of Reverb -> Boss RC-2 -------> Modded Crate v18 Amp

I believe the strat VG has a knob that has tuning changes on it.
I played it once.

it sounded a little too digital.

I think the only way to get a good sound downtuning is to actually downtune.
if you have to, buy another guitar and keep it downtuned.
-then switch to your other guitar for whatever other tuning you want.

i once used my RP350 Whammy setting. i tuned myself up well. plugged the output of the RP350 in the tuner and changed the Pitch shift amount until it was exactly a half-step down.

Clever, eh?

Have you ever heard a Line6 Variax with one of their good amps? It sounds really good. They get bashed for spiders, but all their high end stuff is great.

Watch that. The guitar is actually tuned to EADGBe, but he uses the POD and Variax to tune it to AADGBe and it sounds like its actually been downtuned.
