Overview

The performance and sound of the new DigiTech Whammy Pedal with MIDI Control are reminiscent of the original red WH-1 Whammy. All the favorite whammy settings that guitar players covet are available again at the touch of a knob. Added is a new Dive Bomb effect, similar to that of a Floyd Rose whammy bar pushed all the way to the body of the guitar. Another new addition is a MIDI-in jack, allowing remote control of effects via MIDI devices. Both type and control are accomplished via MIDI program changes and CC messages respectively. Wet/Dry outputs are provided.

This pedal is absolutely GREAT for expreimental players. I personally use it to emulate Tom Morello-esque solos and riffs. But, it is great for any player who really wants to embellish their music with any cool/whimsy effects that this pedal can offer. The only thing I have to complain about is it's axis in the actual pedal. It is just a bit too tight and is hard to get long risen/dropped octave passages in your songs. All in all, a really great buy and very helpful for anyone out there who likes Rage Against the Machine or The White Stripes.

So I returned two of them and gave up, but still gave it 3 stars. It is a really neat pedal. The effects are great, and even the drop tune is useable. The first one I got, the pedal stuck and didn't move smoothly throughout the range of motion. I took it back, got another one, and no problems. Until it started not returning to the right tone. I recalibrated it (something Digitech provides good instructions for, but says shouldn't need to be done), and it worked great again. Until it needed to be recalibrated again. So after a couple times doing that, and having it work for a few days, I figured it wasn't worth fighting with it. So I took it back. But I was sad to see it go. If Digitech can work out some of the bugs with this pedal, I would consider getting another one in the future.

Originally Not The Biggest Fan

By David

from Midland, MI

Comments about Digitech Whammy Pedal with MIDI Control:

Let me preface this review with the fact that first and foremost I don't like too much 80's music. That being said, I do like the bands most have mentioned here. Rage, Audioslave, Radiohead, The White Stripes, and on and on. So I decided to buy this little guy the other day after very briefly trying it out. I was immediately floored by how easy it was to use, and to make sound good. Not to mention IMMEDIATELY recordable. Most of the draw backs that people seem to mention about it, is that its hard to get the 'just right' sound they want. Well I don't think that is a problem with the machine, more a problem with the musician. If you know very basic music theory, you'll know how to set the melodies to sound pleasing, almost instantly. Another reason I bought this, is cause I own a few guitars that are stoptails, and need to be able to play any of my songs with any of my guitars, and some have solos using the whammy, so this pedal makes sure I can do that across all my guitars. It has been a huge hit with everyone I've shown it to. The price is often scary to some, but if you have the money, its well worth it. The only 'problem' I had, was I had to recalibrate the pedal when I first bought it. But this really wasn't a problem at all, it took about 30 seconds and then sounded awesome again. All in all, this is one of those rare pedals for me, that INSPIRES me to play something... And I love it!

Perfect for squeaky solos, not for chords though

By Ben Lewis

from Alexandria Virginia

Comments about Digitech Whammy Pedal with MIDI Control:

This pedal is really is a versatile pedal. I bought it because I always thought Jack White's squeaky, high pitched, grimey solos were absolutely amazing and i wanted to try it for myself. This pedal definitely delivers when you are going for that sound. Its also great if you're trying experimental rock and want to be really original. Its only major fault would have to be that it can sound very digital. Playing chords while using it makes them all fluxuate and it really is a terrible, digital sound (but it is kind of cool if your going for a Sonic Youth-esq experimental sound). Also, it is heavy and made of metal which I prefer because it usually means it sturdy and reliable but for some reason it seems a little weak. Other than that, it works perfectly well. I really wish I could've given it a 5 but that digital sound is not what I'm looking for so it'll have to be a 4.

Pedal broke after 5 weeks

By Max Gunther

from Nashville TN

Comments about Digitech Whammy Pedal with MIDI Control:

Sounded good initially for what I wanted which was just an octave down sound but then only a few weeks after I bought it new the calibration on the pedal came off an then instead of being an octave down, it now only sounds permanently detuned. I'm going to just buy a regular octave pedal. Also, I agree that the other effects sound very digital, grating, squeaky and not musical. Pedal could be very cool if A) they fix the pedal motion part and make it more sturdy. B) get the annoying digital sound out of the harmonies.

experimental player's dream!

By Cjheagles

from carmel, IN

Comments about Digitech Whammy Pedal with MIDI Control:

Tom Morrello really revolutionized the way guitars can play with this pedal. You can get his sounds with this baby right here. Being a gibson owner i dont have a whammy bar but i dont need one now that i have this. It gets some sweet sounds with note-bending, etc. But, my personal favorite is the drop-tune function. It is a quick and easy way to tune down to Eb and D. Bottom line, if you want to play Rage against the machine/audioslave this pedal is a must. Worth the hefty price!

pretty good

By joe

from nj

Comments about Digitech Whammy Pedal with MIDI Control:

i got this about a week ago. when using the octave up settings it sounds way to digital. the harmonizers have so weird combinations like the 7th up, but it has good ones to get the creepy sounding slayer riffs. i cant really tell a difference from the 2 detune settings but its more like chorus. overall a very good pedal

Sweet pedal

By Alex

from Boone, NC

Comments about Digitech Whammy Pedal with MIDI Control:

As a Gibson user, it's tough to get around the issue of having a stop-bar tail peace. Not any longer though, with the whammy pedal's great functionality I can now warp feedback and tuning like I could with, you guessed it, a whammy bar. The pedal tracks well, the octave up feature is mind-blindingly awesome (though the octave down seems pretty useless). Obviously a unique pedal, since it's the only one of its kind. A good buy for alternative musicians, and it can even liven up a more retro sound (as Jack White does).

Awesome

By Carl Hansen

from Carmel, IN

Comments about Digitech Whammy Pedal with MIDI Control:

This is my new favorite pedal. I bought this about a week ago and I absolutely love it. Great for experimental players. Also fun for getting sounds from bands like rage against the machine/audioslave and the white stripes. It is just overall great. One mistake I did make was buy a wall adapter power supply for it. This particular one comes with one already. Oh well, I have a backup for it now. I think if this pedal was a little cheaper more people would own it
