Digitech Whammy 5 Pitch Shift Pedal (5th Generation)
The Legend Gets Better Over Time
The legendary Whammy pedal is the premier pitch-shifting pedal for any guitarist’s board, and it only gets better with time. In addition to the classic Whammy sound, we’ve added chordal Whammy pitch-shifting and true bypass.
Whammy artists have won over 60 Grammys® using its unique pitch-shifting sound to enhance their music. Its songs echo the hallways of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame® and generate acclaim on over 700 million albums around the world. There is no doubt why Whammy is one of the most common sights on guitarists’ pedalboards.
The Whammy can bring new depth to your artistry. Turn your solo into raging, rebellious screams of tone or tame your crowd with highly expressive, ambient chordal bends. Energize your audience with a scratchy note frenzy, bring them in and out of the sound tunnel with musical bursts, or carry them through an existential exploration of full-fretboard pitch translation. The Whammy puts expression into the expression pedal.
Whammy Pitch Bending Effects
The Digitech Whammy brings you the same hair-raising "dive bomb" effects, gripping pitch bends and lightning harmony shifts you are looking for plus a few new twists. Bend entire chords with the new chordal pitch shifting setting, and execture classic single note bends.
Classic Whammy Interface
The Whammy interface features the same legacy Whammy pitch bending options you’re accustomed to along with some additional pitch bend settings from the Whammy DT.
The added Classic/Chords switch toggles between single note and chordal Whammy modes, providing rock solid pitch shifting effects.
True Bypass Operation
With true bypass circuitry, the Whammy is completely bypassed when both Whammy and Drop Tune effects are off.
MIDI In for Remote Control of Whammy Effects
The Whammy DT features a MIDI input for receiving incoming MIDI data. MIDI messages can select a Whammy or Drop Tune effect and set whether these effects are in an active or bypassed state. MIDI CC messages can then be used to control the Whammy Expression Pedal position.
