    Check in here if you dig this little harmonizing, pitch bending, detuned bastard of a pedal like I do. A pictorial history to get us started.

    Most of the red Whammy pedals I've used (except the XP100). The Whammy pedal is the one pedal that really impressed many people more so than any other pedal produced by Digitech.

    I got me a basic Whammy function in my Digitech RP250. For recording, the RP250 is valuable, but for live performance the only think that I use is Whammy effect with digital delay. Whammy with digital delay is totally phucking nuts!

    I'll have to try that... octave up with delay trails must be pretty rad sounding.

    That Whammy DT is a serious piece of real estate. Never tried one as I'm not into using effects to detune. It must be the size of a pizza box.

    Yeah, it's more of a traditional effects crowd, but there's some people lurking around who like to experiment with traditional and nontraditional effects.

    I think Tom Morello nailed it with the whammy on the like a stone solo. I'm using the TC brainwaves pitch shifter with the mash switch to get this effect but nowhere near as usable as with a treddle. Unfortunately I haven't got space for one now.

    I loved what Tom Morello did with his Whammy. I also like the U2's The Edge put it into some great songs. Steve Vai and Joe Satriani also got very creative with it. The one guy who used it in a very aggressive manner was Dimebag Darrell of Pantera. He didn't live long enough to put out a lot of stuff with Whammy, but I liked what what he did with it. I saw him live with Pantera twice, and that Whammy really got a good work out. Thanks DD.

    I was never into the whammy, but the drop pedal is amazing. Does one thing but oh-so-well!

    when I switched to modeling it was the only pedal I kept using with my Helix.

    when I got my kemper stage the detune in it is good enough to replace the drop pedal, but I can’t part with it, it sits in the closet in case I end up getting a tube amp to gig with again in the future.
