Gamechanger Audio said it is “capable of reproducing the feel and sound of the classic Bigsby tremolo arm and much more”.

The pedal features Rate, Blend, Tone, and Depth controls, plus an Invert switch on the back, panel to change the pitch shift direction, while the Detune parameter mimics the imperfections and dissonant properties of traditional mechanical string-bending hardware.

The Bigsby Pedal is also equipped with an external Footswitch Input to turn on Latching Mode as well as an Expression Output that allows you to use the Bigsby as a spring-loaded EXP controller for other audio devices. 

“Powered by the formidable SHARC Audio Processor, the Bigsby Pedal runs a hybrid algorithm to achieve smooth polyphonic real-time pitch-shifting at low intervals,” they said.

The pedal was developed with Bigsby parent company Fender, find more information here.
