Wide range of great sounds, with minor faults.
Great pedal overall. Obviously very wobbly at times when set to upper or lower octave, but this is expected for the time it was built. The reason the pedal has been rated a 4 is because of the brilliant chorus/ phaser effects. on the de-tune setting you can set a shallow or deep setting (shallow indicating a chorus effect - deep indicating a vibrato esque effect), if you ease off with your foot it then creates a decent phaser effect. Pretty versatile pedal.
Unmistakable character with versatility!
So many great sounds, and so many great ways to use them! Even the digital tracking provides a pleasing crackle, used to great effect in Radiohead's "My Iron Lung." And you don't have to be Tom Morello to put those whistling octaves to good use; I like to use them like bells, chiming in for some new wave flavor. My favorite though is just a slight and subtle detune, cloaking your tone in satiny chorus.
Just perfect for what it is.
When you have a fully functional Whammy, no one in your pedalboard does its job better. Harmonics, dive bombs, you name it, you got it. Be careful for this red devil: Use it wisely or it will ruin your song. And learn how to control its power, too.
It's been a decade since the Whammy™ was introduced and now it has a permanent place on every professional's pedalboard. This is what has made the Whammy® a legend. Hit after hit, performance after performance, the Whammy™ not only adds to your playing, it creates new sounds, feelings and textures.
The Whammy™ is simple -- Take your guitar's sound and pitch shift it using a special algorithm, then control that pitch with an expression pedal. So easy and so expressive that it takes your playing to a new world of quirky squeals, monster dive bombs lower than any whammy bar and bends that can only be found on other instruments. It's no wonder why this single pedal is legendary.
