About Digitech Whammy
The Digitech Whammy is the bestselling pitch shifting pedal of all time. It has inspired countless guitarists over the years since its release in the late 80s including the likes of Tom Morello, Dimebag Darrell, Matt Bellamy and Jack White. The legendary whammy pedal is a premier pitch shifting pedal that is built into a treadle format, meaning you can control the unique pitch shifting sound with your foot via the expression pedal.
There are two main modes in a Digitech Whammy. The first is the ‘Whammy’ mode which is considered to be the classic Whammy sound and shifts your whole guitar signal up or down from a semi-tone to two full octaves. This can be used for wild, impossible glissandos. It can also be used more subtly, to replicate lower tunings with excellent sound quality without the hassle of having to retune your guitar.
The second mode is ‘Harmony’. This mode adds a pitch shifted signal on top of your normal signal. Combining your guitar signal with an octave up imitates the sound of a twelve string guitar; whereas combining your guitar signal with an octave down gives the impression of a bass player in perfect time with you. You can also use the ‘Detune’ option to give your guitar a lush, slightly synthetic, chorus sound.
These days the Digitech Whammy has been optimized for bass guitarists with the Digitech Bass Whammy. It is also available without the treadle in the Whammy Ricochet model.
