I really like the Whammy! As the only guitar player in my Band, the hamonizer gives me many opportunities to expand my sound! The pitch shifter effect gives me the chance to play deeper notes without detuning my guitar. A very useful and fun effect
This versión of the Digitech Pitch Shift is, for me, the closest to the first version with some enhances like a true bypass switch and the Classic/Chord Type switch.
This pedal is just pure fun. Love it or hate it but if you can use it cough cough Tom Morello then you have great tool for experimenting with your sound and enrich your solos, create interesting rhythm sounds (Muse, Radiohead). I use it even for creating music with looper to emulate bass sound which sounds really cool. This pedal can also create iconic digital glitchy sound which is cool for some picking patterns etc. Only limit is your imagination :)
The classic Digitech whammy. The Whammy 5 returns with True Bypass and a lot more functions. Classic mode is focused on single notes and Chord mode is focused on using chords, i think it just tracks better or something. Can't go wrong with this one.
A lot of the previous whammys were notorious for their bad bypassing. This one has true bypassing to fix that problem. Not only that, but the classic/chords setting makes this a crazy versatile pedal. Can get that classic glitchy Whammy sound with one setting, and a polyphonic octaver with the other.
I was looking for this pedal since I listened to Munky and Head crazy riffs back in 99'. The way they create riffs and different atmosphere sounds made me a huge Korn fan. Infinite possibilities, from single-note riffs to change your guitar's tune from DropD to DropC (select "\/ 2nd") or to DropA (select "\/ 4th"), so I don't need to change guitars during jams and concerts. There are so many possibilities that I'm always trying something new with this amazing pedal. I recommend you to spend some time doing the same, and explore all the features from this insane pedal.
This is the last wahmmy pedal on the market, finally digitech could made a wahmmy with a similarquality likethe first version, and true with bypass! so, this is fucking great.
