HARMAN DigiTech’s Whammy is one of the most   iconic effects pedals ever created – and the new Whammy DT adds a host   of mind-bending new capabilities including drop tuning, capo tuning,   true bypass coupled with the famous Whammy.  The Whammy DT starts with the classic Whammy pitch shifting effects   that have made the Whammy one of the most recognizable effects pedals   in rock.  Featuring an expanded selection of pitch bending   capabilities including 9 Whammy bending modes from 2-octaves up   through 2-octives down, 9 harmony bending modes, 2 detune modes, and   the popular Dive Bomb six octaves down effect.  The Whammy DT also lets guitar and bass players instantly modify their   tuning without having to change instruments or break the musical mood   with awkward tuning adjustments for the next song. The Whammy DT can   drop down or capo up seven half-steps or an entire octave from where   the guitar or bass is tuned. Thanks to the Whammy DT’s sophisticated   digital signal processing and pitch shifting algorithms, chordal   accuracy is perfectly maintained.  In addition, the Whammy DT features a momentary footswitch for real   time stepped pitch shifting to create ”Hammer-On” and “Pull-Off” type   effects. Players can instantly get a drop or raise in the pitch of the   notes they are playing by stepping on and holding the footswitch –   then releasing it to return to pitch for a dramatic effect during   solos and riffs.  The various effects can be selected via the pedal’s two selector knobs   and dual set of LEDs indicators. The Whammy DT includes ¼-inch guitar   input and output, a MIDI input that allows control of the pedal from   an external MIDI device, and an external 9 volt DC power adapter. The   Whammy DT is built to take the demands of live performance, with a   rugged all-metal chassis, pedal and footswitch. Its true bypass   operation ensures it can be added to any rig without any adverse   effect on sound quality, without the “tone suck” of some non-bypass   pedals. The Whammy DT can be used with the optional DigiTech FS3X   three-button footswitch controller for added expressive capabilities.  “It was no easy task to improve upon a product that has been as   successful as the legendary Whammy,” said Rob Urry, Vice President and   General Manager of HARMAN Professional Signal Processing Group.  “But   we feel that we have exceeded this goal by expanding the feature set   of the original Whammy with drop tuning and capo tuning capabilities,   as well as true bypass operation now available in the Whammy DT.”  The DigiTech Whammy DT will be available in June 2011 at $449.95 MSRP.
