DigiTech has repriced its iStomp FX pedal - a stomp box that can be totally reprogrammed using an iOS device - to an ultra low price of just £49 inc VAT. Alongside the price reduction of the unit itself, all available e-pedals (with the exception of the Adrian Belew artist e-pedal) are now free. Digitech says that the flexibility and sound quality of the iStomp makes it an indispensable additional pedal to have in your gig bag to use whenever required, for whatever required.
The DigiTech iStomp works just like a traditional stompbox but can be completely reconfigured by loading it with any one of 47 e-pedals available via its iOS Stomp Shop App. Connect the iStomp to an iOS 4.3+ device using the included DigiTech Smart Cable to totally change effect in the iStomp. Disconnect the Smart Cable and you're ready to use your iStomp just like you would any traditional pedal. (Note a Lightning adaptor is required for use with Lightning-equipped iOS devices.)
Available e-pedals include various overdrives, distortions, pitch shifters, delays, an acoustic simulation - even a Lexicon Hall reverb.

Wow, this is quite cool. But surely this is the signature of a failed product. Pity that the business model did not work out.

Exactly. I previewed the New Years 2014 flyer online for Musicians Friend and they had them marked down from $149 to $39.00 US!! I want to get one, but at that price cut it makes me wonder how long the app that supports it will be around. The pedal would be a paper weight without the app.
