Guitar World Verdict

A diminutive pitch-shifting powerhouse with a tasty combination of features to suit many needs.


  • +

    Two pitch shifters.

  • +

    Solid tracking.

  • +

    Wide frequency range.

  • +

    Practical footswitching options.

  • +

    Expression pedal capability.


  • -

    At this price, it would be churlish to complain about the usual warbly artefacts on extreme shifts.

You can trust Guitar World Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing guitar products so you can choose the best for you. Find out more about how we test.

The Pitch Fork+ provides two identical but independent pitch-shifting engines in a single pedal, both offering pitch up or down over a +/- three octave range and detuning of +/- 99 cents. There are separate volume knobs for each pitch shifter and for the dry sound, so there are plenty of options for totally pitch-shifted sounds or blends.  

Besides the main output you’ll also find an AUX output that has various signal routing options, including stereo pitch shifting and keeping dry and effected sounds separate, while a second (User) footswitch can be assigned to different functions such as toggling channels on and off, selecting presets, crossfades and more. Should you want more switching capability, there’s a connection for a triple footswitcher.
