    Well, they’re good enough for Jeff Beck and Billy Gibbons.

    Cheers,

    Question on the vibrato circuit-- does the pitch always vary downward, or can it pitch upward (like when bending on the fretboard) as well?

    I'm pretty new to pitch-shifting vibrato, as I had been using the term interchangeably with "tremolo" for some time and didn't realize there was a difference.

    They like them enough that they are part owners/investors in the company.

    Interesting. They seem to be saying that the circuit varies the pitch up and down. In the audio files I listened to (and the YouTube demos) it sounded like it was bending downward only. Maybe it's my hearing?
