Overview
  • 1Description

The Whammy (5th Gen) Pitch Shifting Effects Pedal by DigiTech builds upon the well known Whammy pitch bend effect for guitar and bass by adding chordal pitch-shifting, which allows you to bend full chords as well as individual notes. True Bypass operation, also new in this version, ensures that the tone of your guitar or bass will not be affected when the pedal is disengaged.

The Whammy mode works by taking your guitar sound and shifting the pitch up or down as the expression pedal is rocked back and forth. This is useful for creating a surprising note change or a dive bomb effect in a guitar solo. Harmony and Detune modes expand upon this concept by allowing you to combine pitch bending effects with your dry guitar signal. These modes can be used to create guitar harmonies or tension building effects during a lead break or a bridge section.

Includes legacy Whammy pitch-shift effects and settings (10 Whammy, 9 Harmony and 2 Detune) plus the added Classic/Chords switch which toggles between single note and chordal pitch bend modes
MIDI input allows you to connect a MIDI controller to change effect settings or control pitch bends remotely
True Bypass operation ensures guitar or bass tone will not be affected when pedal is disengaged
