"The first thing we go through is the XP-100, and I have a gain control on the back of that so if anybody's looking at all these pedals thinking 'You're gonna lose a lot of signal', you can get it back by just turning up the volume on the XP100." – Jim Otell (Munky's guitar tech) on the DigiTech XP-100 Whammy-Wahmore
Another of Scofield’s pedals, the Digitech Whammy-Wah is his, “favorite of the DigiTech ones,” (6:23). “Most people like the other whammy pedal I like this one,” he says. “I don't know. It's kind of a lot of different effects. The way I have is set up right now it's six presets I have a set for a couple of wahs that I use occasionally. The second is auto wah I use that a lot if you like that auto wah thing…I have a [pre]set so I can whammy down the whole set. That's kind of a whammy bar effect, but on the pedal. And then I use this preset which brings it up one octave. Then I have a [pre]set to go up two octaves if I want for some really ‘out’ type effect. And then this last preset that I have it's set so it's octave below, and the original note - like an octaver thing. That's kind of whammy bar effect but on the pedal…”more
"The Whammy Wah is like an old 90s pedal. I bought a couple of these because they keep breaking; I think they're just made for the studio, really, [...] the whammy effect is something that I use an awful lot just for texture and when [I'm] using a lot of delay and other stuff and it sounds really tasty. It's got some other stuff on there like auto-wahs and filters and stuff like that."more
