DigiTech Whammy 5th Generation Pitch Shift Pedal
For over two decades the Whammy pedal has been known as the ultimate pitch-shifting pedal in the world, used by everyone from Jimmy Page to Tom Morello and heard on songs like Seven Nation Army by the White Stripes. The introduction of new possibilities with the Whammy pedal reinforces its legendary status of the pitch-shifting realm. The release of the new Whammy is the latest chapter in the pitch-shifting revolution. Bringing together the best of the original Whammy with the latest developments offering both classic and chord shifting modes, we are giving guitarists a reason to rediscover the unrivalled tone that makes this pedal a legend in the first place, stated Rob Urry, vice president, HARMAN Professional Division and general manager of Signal Processing and Amplifier Business Units.The Whammy lets guitar and bass players raise and lower their tuning by up to two octaves, to create pitch shifts from subtle to extreme and dramatic musical effects not possible with any other pedal. The Whammy now incorporates new pitch-shifting technologies that enable the player to bend entire chords up or down while keeping all the notes in the chord perfectly in tune. The Whammy also keeps its signature Classic single-note mode that has made the pedal one of the most recognizable in rock and contemporary music, along with nine Harmony 2-note interval settings and two Detune modes.Offering true bypass means that the signal from the guitar is completely unaffected by the Whammy when it's switched off, maintaining all the purity of the guitar signal when the player doesn't want anything altering his or her sound. This can be especially important when using a lot of pedals on a pedalboard. The Whammy won't alter your sound until you want it to!

Great pedal you know you need one
Does what it says on the tin, and does it excellently. Tracking speed and accuracy is fantastic, and the harmony settings are a great took to have.
Smashing good fun. Recommended all round, it's just great.
Excellently built pedal. Feels a lot more robust than previous generations for touring.
