DR. SCIENTIST BitQuest


The BitQuest is a compact, multi-effects pedal featuring 8 fun and adventurous patches that can be used with or without a built-in digital fuzz. The patches on hand include a full featured flanger, high pass and low pass filters, a bit crusher with sample rate reducer, an infinite reverb, a deep notch filter, a ring modulator with reverb, a +/- 1 octave pitch shifter, and a wild glitch delay. Like all Dr. Scientist pedals, the BitQuest can be used with guitar, bass, synths, and many other instruments.
