The Electro Harmonix Pitch Fork is a versatile pedal which produces a polyphonic pitch shift for your instrument either up or down three octaves. It offers up a huge spectrum of different outputs that allow you to essentially convert your guitar’s sound into a myriad of varying sounds. You can dial in a set pitch shift, or even use an expression pedal for real time continuous control.
The Pitch Fork pedal allows you to change your pitch up or down three octaves while there is also an innovative 3-way toggle switch which enables you to alter the pitch either up, down or both simultaneously. In total there are 11 Shift positions for you to play with and these are as follows: 17 cents, through Minor 2nd, Major 2nd, Major 3rd, Perfect 4th, Perfect 5th, Major 6th, Minor 7th, 1 Octave, 2 Octaves and 3 Octaves.
The Pitch Fork also features a Dual mode which means you can create two separate pitches at once, while you can then set the pitch shift or use an expression pedal to continuously change your sound.
The footswitch on the Pitch Fork isn’t just your standard on / off switch as this plus the “Latch “ button allow you to switch between two modes, Latch and Momentary, and these modes control how the EXP input and footswitch react. Latch mode allows you to continuously vary your pitch depending on your Shift dial settings, whereas Momentary gives you the chance to create stunning gliss effects controlled by the EXP input and expression pedal if you wish. The rate of glissando can vary between 4 milliseconds to 2 seconds depending on your foot position on the expression pedal.
The Pitch Fork pedal offers flawless tracking and the signal is seamless thanks to its buffered bypass. By plugging in an expression pedal you are given a wealth of sound that you have total control over to suit your playing needs. This also works really well alongside an additional distortion pedal if you’re looking to create some gritty rock sounds.
The Pitch Fork Polyphonic Pitch Shifter Pedal is a wonderfully innovative device made in New York by Electro Harmonix and is an excellent addition to anyone’s pedalboard whether you’re a guitarist or bassist.
