"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

Yes it's true! IMO. Best whammy Digitech ever made. I use it for cool filter/wah effects and the whammy is...well....a whammy :-) Love it. It also can act as a real cool booster. I will never sell mine!
this is not the whammy to have. It does the job if you want these effects. The DtoA conversion is atrocious and makes a sound all its own. The wah settings are really neat though. They don't sound right at all. And that's the charm... its like how lucky charms aren't REALLY marshmallows, you know?
