No longer available at zZounds
Load guitar effects on this stompbox via your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. Score more "e-pedals" at DigiTech's Stomp Shop and carry them all on your iDevice.

The DigiTech iStomp is a radical approach to instrument pedals. It works just like a traditional stompbox with one huge exception. It can be completely reconfigured by loading it with any of the many e-pedals available in the Stomp Shop app.

Unlike devices that require you to stay tethered to your iOS device, the iStomp does all of its processing internally. This means professional-quality, high-definition signal processing with no latency and you dont need your iOS device while youre playing.

See what the world of e-pedals can do for your music.

Each iStomp comes with two e-pedals: Total Recall digital delay and Redline Overdrive. The first time you connect to your iStomp you can choose one more e-pedal from the different DigiTech pedals for only $0.99. After that you can download e-pedals for as little as $0.99.

Stomp Shop App

The Connect the iStomp to an iOS device using the DigiTech Smart Cable. In about the same time it takes to download a song, you can completely reconfigure the iStomp with any e-pedal from your virtual road case using the Stomp Shop app. Disconnect the Smart Cable and you're ready to use your iStomp just like you would any traditional pedal.

e-pedal Trial Period

The iStomp is the only stompbox that allows players to demo different e-pedals using their own rig before they buy it. Through the app you can listen to a demo of all the e-pedals but unlike all other stompboxes you load any read more e-pedal for up to 5 minutes to see how it sounds through your amps using your guitar before paying anything.

e-pedal Virtual Road Case

e-pedal Custom LED Color

"Lots of potential."
Overall: 4.5 out of 5 stars
The iStomp is pretty slick. Hook up your Apple device, load your pedal de jour, unhook, and away you go. With all the different pedals offered through the iStomp app, this box is both the perfect way to start out your pedal collection, and can fit onto even the most expansive of boards. Even if you never buy a box beyond the first few included (two free with one more of your choosing for $.99 upon first launching the app) this is still multiple pedals for $150 - an excellent buy. The customizable labels and configurable color LED are a nice touch. The app is easy to use and loads effects quickly (~30 seconds). All the effects I've tried sound great for a digital pedal. There's a lot of potential here - I'm looking forward to where DigiTech will take this platform. Maybe a higher-end iStomp 2?
