The infamous Whammy, but with a awesome twist!!!

As the title says, this is just like the classic Whammy pedal - with the dive, raise and lower pitch and harmonizing effects it's been known for. But the extra twist with this one is the addition of the drop and raise tune feature, incorporating 2 great DigiTech pedals into one, and then some!!! While the Drop pedal itself is good for down-tuning in half-step increments, the Whammy DT also has the ability to go up in the same amount of half-step increments as well. This feature alone allows any guitarist to only need a single guitar to play just about anything and everything without having to change tunings multiple times, string flop due to such low tunings on a certain gauge strings, neck adjustment as a result, and major tremolo readjustment if you have a Floyd Rose style tremolo. Equally as useful with 7-string & 8-string guitars as well for the increased ease of tuning capabilities without compromising set-up and playability of your guitar. For additional ease of use and more on-the-fly control during home/practice/live use, get the optional DigiTech FS3X footswitch to allow hands-free function changes. An almost must-have for the Whammy DT, especially if you tend to use either of or both functions of this pedal more frequently. Having graduated to this from the 4th Gen (red) Whammy, this is a major improvement on the original, and well worth every penny for it! Can't recommend it enough for its total functionality!!!

My second one!

When I read about this pedal 4 years ago, I couldn't believe it. I wanted something like this for decades. I ordered it knowing I could return it. Hooked it up and immediately my wife (also my piano player) and I went "WOW!" I usually only use the de-tuning side, as the little brother only tunes down and has no footswitch. I just ordered another as I have worn out most of the foot switches. I hope enough people buy them so production is continued, but I don't want our secret weapon in everyone's hands! LOL

Wham Bam !!

This pedal will open you up to some amazing ideas for recording original songs. I can't believe the range it offers. You can do a lot of Hendrix type stuff, dive bomb like Van Halen or if Black Crowe's slide guitar style is your preference....then this is your pedal. If you want to drop tune and play a little Korn...here you go! This is a quality pedal. Great control, responsive, no unwanted sounds. It's worth every penny! I read somewhere D.J. Ashba uses one. So I checked one out and bought it..you can't go wrong with anything that guy does!

If your guitar has a Floyd Rose on it, then this pedal is worth every penny it goes for. Now you NO longer have to retune your Floyd if you want to drop tune your guitar to play that favorite metal song that you have been wanting to play or practice but retuning your Floyd has stopped you from doing. In addition to not having to retune your guitar the old fashion way, you NO longer have to put up with loose sloppy strings that by nature goes along with drop tuning. So now your string tension is nice and tight and you still get that AWESOME dropped tuning sound! If your a Metal Head, grab this pedal as fast as they can ship it too you!! You will not be disappointed. I haven't even gone into the Whammy side of the pedal, combine both sides of the pedal together and watch your ears get fat 'cause that much ear candy coming from the pedal can't be healthy for ya!! Haha

Pure Awesomeness

This pedal is absolutely amazing. There are so many crazy sounds that you can make with it. Being able to switch octaves and change the harmony at the same time leads to some crazy solos and heavy rifts. A must have pedal for any guitar player.
