DigiTech iStomp Now Really $40

Back in early November DigiTech announced that their iStomp iOS-integrated effects pedal was going to be reduced in price to $50. This failed to materialize in the US, though Thomann and other European retailers immediately slashed their prices.

Yesterday reader Dr. M commented here with news that the sale price has finally reached North America! Musicians Friend has them listed now for $40!

This is a pretty phenomenal deal, now that the effects are free! Just hook up the iStomp to your iDevice and you can send over any of the effects in the app, which used to retail for $1-15 each.

Before you rush out to buy this though I think it is worth mentioning that Alex from iDesignSound grabbed this last month and was ultimately disappointed. The effects were fine, but he was annoyed by the fact that you could only connect to older 30-pin devices. The iStomp requires a wall plug, with no option for battery-powered operation. Both of these factors were major strikes against it in his personal setup and are worth considering.

Instead he returned it and got a Zoom MS-100BT which is 3-times the price, but uses Bluetooth for connecting to their app and allows for multiple effects chained on the same pedal. Each of the Zoom effects are a further $1 IAP each. I tried to get Alex to do a comparison video while he had both of the units, but in fine British tradition he could not be arsed. You should totally bug him about this on Twitter and tell him to listen to me when I suggest a video idea.
