Hi.
I have been thinking of buying this pedal (Morpheus Drop Tune Pedal) so i dont need to buy a new guitar and put heavy gauge strings on it.

I use a roland cube 80x amp witch i have about a meter away from me, and the volume is pretty low (about 2 out of 10).
My question was if i play in standard tune and ''drop'' the tuning 1/2 steps down whit the pedal, will it sound bad? Because the volume in the amp is low i will always hear some sound coming from the actual guitar (i have a solid body guitar).

Hope you guys understand me, sorry for bad English lol...

that's a great question! I would imagine it would sound terrible.

If you like your tone, the morpheus will SUCK SUCK SUCK it out. Seriously i really wanted one cause it sounded so cool, i went and tried it, and it sounded like i was playing the trumpet.

Yes it can get very distracting if your amp is still quiet. Doesn't sound too good either. Turn that amp up or maybe even use some headphones when you use it

If your just playing at home is it worth it to spend that much on a pedal when you can downtune in less that two minutes?

Maybe he has a guitar with a Floyd Rose, like me, and doesn't want to be bothered with taking more time.

If I were you I would do what the above post suggested, and get headphones if you buy the Droptune.

No, i dont have a floyd, but it's still a problem.
I use Ernie Ball 54-10 strings, and the work out pretty well in drop C or D standard, but the problem is that i take lessons once a week, so i need to tune to standard tune. It is true that i can down tune or uptune my guitar in a few minutes, but the strings would get to tight or to sloppy. So do you guys think that i shuld buy the pedal or another guitar?
Anyways i can't use headphones from the amp while i play, becouse i mostly play along whit music and stuff on the computer, so i already use one headset. I dont have 4 ears lol...

I wasn't impressed with the pedal, and I'd rather have a separate guitar for different tunings so it's intonated, string gauges are right, etc.

The pedal was best on the half step down function IMO...after that it got pretty bad

IMO, the pedal sounds like a poor octaver If you don't have a guitar with a flour just tune up for your lesson. Or buy a cheap vintage or something which is in around the same price range as the pedal and use that in standard?

Why don't you keep your guitar drop tuned and use a capo when you need it?

A Digitech Whammy would work too, be more versatile but sound a little weird

DO NOT GET THE PEDAL. Unless you really have £140 to waste. Its really not worth it. IMHO if your guitar doesn't have a trem bridge, and you cant be bothered to tune it up it's just being abit lazy. The strings will be affected by this, but if your actually practising things you learn from your lesson?

The capo idea would be better than the whammy IMO...the whammy tracks pretty bad if you're trying to use it constantly (i.e. using it to tune your guitar up for an entire song).
