  • Whammy and other pitchshift madness

    I'm looking for a cool pitch shifter. Any good/bad experiences with the Digitech Whammy (v5) ?



    Or other pitch shifters you like or would recommend?

            I bought a Whammy II brand new back in the 90's. The 5 is everything I had wished for back when I had the II.

                I've yet to hear anything but total praise for the Whammy V. It seems to have essentially everything: True Bypass, Standard 9v DC power, and glitch-free, polyphonic tracking that's, by all accounts, ahead of everything else out there right now. I'd leap for that since there doesn't seem to be a real contender out there right now.

                            Both are solid pedals. I think the Whammy is probably the better of the two overall (polyphonic pitch shifting FTW), but the PS-6 is a big improvement over the older PS-5, and certainly no slouch either. I also like the dual note capabilities of the PS-6, especially for detune / chorusing.



                            If you do get a Whammy 5, make sure you also check out the Molten Voltage Molten MIDI 5.
