DigiTech’s new Whammy pedal introduces chordal Whammy pitch-shifting, additional Whammy intervals, and true bypass.The Whammy lets guitar and bass players raise and lower their tuning by up to two octaves, to create pitch shifts from subtle to extreme. The Whammy now incorporates new pitch-shifting technologies that enable the player to bend entire chords up or down while keeping all the notes in the chord perfectly in tune. It keeps its signature Classic single-note mode, along with nine Harmony 2-note interval settings and two Detune modes.
The Whammy also includes 1/4-inch inputs and outputs, a MIDI input that allows control of the pedal from an external MIDI device, and a 9-volt DC power input. The Whammy employs high-quality 24-bit/96kHz analog-to-digital and digital-to analog converters for clean, smooth pitch-bending sound. An on/off switch engages and disengages the Whammy effect, and a “Classic/Chords” switch lets players select either mode. Each Whammy pedal comes with a rugged all-metal chassis, pedal, and footswitch.
