Glitch-free Pitch Shifting, Harmony, and Chorus Effects

The electro-harmonix Slammi polyphonic pitch shifter pedal gives you much more than a divebomb pedal. Sure, you can send your guitar tone plummeting down or soaring up three octaves, but that's just the start. Set the bend range to zero for a warm, watery chorus effect. Rock this rugged pedal to bend your guitar's pitch up or down, or set the effect to the heel-down position for an "always on" effect. And no matter how fast you play, the Slammi pedal will track perfectly. So call Sweetwater for the glitch-free pitch shift pedal that's amazingly versatile - the electro-harmonix Slammi!

Electro-harmonix Slammi Polyphonic Pitch Shifter Pedal at a Glance:
  • Smooth pitch shifting for subtle bends or huge divebombs
  • Very musical sound, thanks to easily-selectable intervals
  • Next Step effects give you reliable performance and near-bulletproof construction
Smooth pitch shifting for subtle bends, huge divebombs, harmony, and more

You can use the EHX Slammi pedal just like the whammy bar on a guitar, without worrying about your guitar's tuning stability. But whammy-style effects aren't all you get here. You can blend your dry tone with the pitch-shifted tone, so you can create complex harmony effects too. Or use it to bend your whole tone to extremes like Tom Morello (Audioslave, Rage Against the Machine). You can also set the Slammi to produce a swirling chorus effect, giving you a wide range of sounds at your disposal.

Very musical sound, thanks to easily-selectable intervals

You've got a three octave bend range on the EHX Slammi, but thankfully electro-harmonix was smart about how you dial-in the range. You can choose from Detune, Half Step, Major 2nd, Major 3rd, Perfect 4th, Perfect 5th, Major 6th, Minor 7th, 1 Octaves, 2 Octaves or 3 Octaves. So you'll always get perfectly musical, in-tune performance, even with big bend ranges. Best of all, you can set the effect to the heel-down position to re-tune your guitar to get 7- and 8-string guitar sounds.

Next Step effects give you reliable performance and near-bulletproof construction

Part of EHX's Next Step series of effects pedals, the Slammi has no moving parts to wear out or break. You'll get many years of use out of this pedal. In fact, we've seen a video of someone running over a Next Step effect pedal with a truck and it kept right on working. Sweetwater does NOT recommend driving over your guitar gear, but we do recommend getting the EHX Slammi for an amazingly rugged and reliable pitch shifter pedal.

Electro-harmonix Slammi Polyphonic Pitch Shifter Pedal Features:
  • Rugged pitch shifter/harmony/chorus pedal with no moving parts to wear out
  • Rock the pedal to bend your guitar tone up or down, up to 3 octaves
  • Choose from Detune, Half Step, Major 2nd, Major 3rd, Perfect 4th, Perfect 5th, Major 6th, Minor 7th, 1 Octaves, 2 Octaves or 3 Octaves
  • Can create a lush chorus effect in Detune mode
  • Glitch-free tracking, even when you're playing your fastest
  • Dry volume control lets you blend in your original signal for harmony effects
  • Powered by 9V battery
Flexible, glitch-free pitch effects are yours with the EHX Slammi!

Not Just Another "Pitch" Pedal

Bill Rupert's video sold this pedal for me: the musicality combined with function/ease of use did it. No moving parts, polyphonic, fast tracking and design make it an incredibly useful tool.

Slammi a slam dunk!

I just bought the EHX Slammi polyphonic Pitch shift pedal from Sweetwater. It's a slam dunk. Great tracking regardless of pitches incoming or the pitched output. No delay or artifacts. Blend lets me include original signal as well, unchanged. The only negative is that the rotary controls for pitch interval and original signal gain don't extend out of the case making changing the setting very difficult. Have to pick the unit up to do so and there are no detents to let you know what pitch setting you've got. I'd like to see a different control for pitch selection to make it easier and more definitive a setting choice. Otherwise great!

no real control

Not a live application pedal at all, must pick up to change settings, and then re-calibrate. It has some cool sounds but not enough for me to keep it. On that note Bob Mondok is an awesome Sales Rep and deserves 5 stars or more! No problem @ all with returning the pedal, Bob had me taken care of in a no time.

Concept is great but it just didn't do it for me

I am an EHX fan and with that said, I could not get a good tone, nor consistent ability to use the pedal as I had hoped. My intention was to replace the Digitech Wammi. I only need this for a couple of tunes as an octave effect (think Hey You octave distorted part prior to the solo) but the tone just did not cut it. It sounded artificial and was not precise. It has been a while since I purchased this unit and put it through its paces but as I recall, I also had difficulty achieving the right mix of original and affected sound in a live setting during rehearsal. I do recall that there was no issue with tracking.
