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!!!
