"Steve’s pedalboard for the ‘Sex & Religion’ tour. It included a much smaller version of his Bradshaw switching unit, this one made by Custom Audio Electronics. The pedals included a Digitech Whammy pedal which could be controlled from the rack, a BOSS DS-1 Distortion, a BOSS CH-1 chorus pedal, a Crybaby wah pedal and a Roland FV-100 volume pedal."more
In this clip from "It Might Get Loud", you can just make out the Whammy 1 behind Jimi at :23s. [*Woodytone*](http://www.woodytone.com/2010/04/21/jimmy-pages-it-might-get-loud-gear/) tries to decipher exactly what gear he uses in this move from this accompanying article, where they also mention the Whammy 1.more
David Gilmour has used the pitch shift Digitech Whammy since early 90s recording the Grammy-winning song Marooned from the Division Bell album. In his solo album On An Island and in the recently Pink Floyd last album Endless River, he stills uses the same pedal. Of course, he always gets the best from every effect he uses and the Whammy isn't the exception.more
The detune feature on these pedals is what really makes it magic for me, but I couldn't name you many (if any) artists who use it widly; the shallow detune is effectively a chorus-y modulation that sounds pretty fantastic, on top of everything else you already know the WH-1 is famous for. Nothing to complain about really; these things are pricey, but if you dig the effect there's nowhere better to turn!
