Griffin StompBox brings guitar effects to your iOS devices



The StompBox from Griffin Technology is a programmable, multi-functional foot controller that enables virtual guitar effects with your iOS devices. It's designed to work with any guitar, bass guitar, electric violin or keyboard that takes a 1/4-inch jack. Crested to work with Frontier Design’s iShred LIVE app, the StompBox allows musicians to keep their hands on their instruments and switch effects with their feet.


Packaged with StompBox is the Griffin GuitarConnect cable that provides simultaneous connections to instruments, headphones and iOS devices. Individual foot switches can be assigned to control different effects within the iShred LIVE app.


In addition to it's uses with musical instruments, StompBox can be used with Qscript, Griffin’s teleprompter app for the iPad. Using the Qscript app, text-scrolling and other presentation functions can also be controlled with one foot.

StompBox is available now for $99.99 at Apple Retail Stores or from Griffin Technology.
