Salt Lake City, UT (September 19, 2012) – HARMAN’s DigiTech’s “Stomp-tember” continues with the introduction of its DigiTech Freeze Wah, an e-pedal that gives guitarists the distinctive tone of a wah wah pedal kept in a fixed position. The Freeze Wah re-creates this effect without having to keep the pedal of a standard wah wah pedal in one place.

“The ‘cocked-wah’ sound is great for cutting through a band mix and adding presence to your lead guitar tone, as anyone who’s heard Slash, Frank Zappa or Michael Schenker can tell you,” said Rob Urry, vice president, HARMAN Professional Division and general manager of Signal Processing and Amplifier Business Units. “However, it can be very tricky to do this consistently as you have to find the pedal’s sweet spot and keep it there. The Freeze Wah lets players get the exact fixed-wah sound they want, every time.”

The DigiTech Freeze Wah features knobs for Position, which sets the sweet spot “pedal position” of the wah, Q, which controls the frequency bandwidth of the effect, and Boost, which adjusts the boost level of the effect. By manipulating these three knobs, a wide variety of fixed-wah effects can be obtained

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 Freeze Wah 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 $229.95 MSRP.
