The new Whammy is a modern version of the original red WH-1 Whammy pedal introduced by DigiTech nine years ago. The basic form has been maintained with only a few cosmetic changes to bring it up to date with the latest DigiTech look. However, the performance and sound are both extremely reminiscent to that of the popular original Whammy.

All the favorite Whammy settings of old are available again at the touch of a knob. LEDs indicate the current Whammy setting and a heavy-duty vacuum cleaner-style momentary foot switch enables and disables the effect.

A new addition to this Whammy is the MIDI In jack, allowing remote control of the Whammy effect via any MIDI controlling device. Both Whammy type and control are accomplished via MIDI program changes and CC messages, respectively. Also new is the ‘Dive Bomb’ Whammy type, giving the effect of a Floyd Rose whammy bar pushed all the way to the body of the guitar. Standard outputs include Wet Added and Dry, and the unit is powered by a PS750 power supply.

The manufacturer’s suggested U.S. retail price on the Whammy is $249.95.
