DigiTech Whammy Expressive Pitch Shifting Guitar Effects Pedal at a Glance:
Bring the Whammy to your pedal board
From Steve Vai to Jack White to the Edge to Tom Morello, the Whammy has been a part of modern music form over 20 years. The DigiTech Whammy brings you the same hair-raising "dive bomb" effects, gripping pitch bends and lightning harmony shifts you are looking for plus a few new twists. Bend entire chords with the new chordal pitch shifting setting, and execture classic single note bends. LEDs indicate the current Whammy setting and a heavy-duty momentary footswitch enables and disables the effect. There is only one Whammy, add it to your board today.
True bypass switching preserves your tone at all times
What are your pedals doing to your sound when they aren't in use? If you're rocking a DigiTech Whammy, then your guitar tone is safe. That's because the Whammy features true bypass circuitry. True bypass circuitry means that when you disengage your Whammy, your guitar signal passes cleanly through the pedal, unaffected by any of its background circuitry. This eliminates signal loss and noise, while simultaneously reducing the effecting length of your signal path, reducing the effect of RF and EM noise in the environment.
MIDI compatibility for ease of use
Full MIDI connectivity allows you to hook the DigiTech Whammy up to any MIDI device and send or receive pitch-bend information. This lets you control the Whammy from any MIDI controlling device. You can put the pedal in your rig and control it from your keyboard, MIDI foot controller, or almost any MIDI device.

If your 'thinking' of ordering this pedal from Sweetwater, you're over-thinking
by Jack Bowen from Ayden, NCI preface this with i am a very picky guy when it comes to purchasing anything from anyone-especially online, but I am very satisfied with this!

We're all entitled to an opinion, but I don't s... read more [+]ee how anyone doesn't love this pedal! It does EXACTLY what is says and does it perfectly! The various modes it has will keep you engrossed for hours and when playing live, your fans ears will pique when this pedal is engaged! Love the true bypass. The ONLY critique is that you physically have to change the modes with your hand, though if you can master the foot roll (kinda like driving with your knees) to change modes then no worries. I use the two octaves up for swells with my looper or for soft delicate solos because it transforms your sound into an almost synthesizer effect that is very cool!
Also, if you're a phan of Trey Anastasio and the crazy swell loops he does live then THIS IS YOUR PEDAL.
I'll close with you should order this pedal/or any other gear for that matter only from the people at Sweetwater! I know no one who works there and have no affiliation to them but have been VERY satisfied with their service! I'm the guy with the worst luck ordering anything technical on line (always get the dud or something better comes out as i order something) but Sweetwater really goes above and beyond to help you custom your purchase to what you need! They offer the best price, offer continual tech service/advice, and are quick in their delivery)
Basically, there is no other pedal for 'whammy' effects or company to order it from than DigiTech and Sweetwater! close [-]
IF YOU WANT TO SOUND LIKE TREY ANASTASIO
by Ryan Mowdy from EarthI originally purchased this pedal in the hopes to emulate Phish's song "First Tube" as I found out that all the astonishing effects that were performed weren't so much his skills at guitar but the tec... read more [+]hnology of effects pedals. Now keep in mind you'd need a Boomerrang Pedal as a looper (or use a flashback they get good ratings) but pitch shifting provides a plethora of possibilities and lets your imagination run wild. I can't get enough of it. Especially when you put it in your signal chain as to where the other pedals are effected by the Whammy pedal. You can have so much fun with it. I highly recommend being a guitarist for over 20 years that you will LOVE this pedal. close [-]
