HARMAN’s DigiTech® Whammy® DT Pedal with Drop Tuning and True Bypass Is Now Shipping 
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – HARMAN’s DigiTech today announced the Whammy DT Pedal is now
shipping. The new Whammy DT adds a host of mind-bending capabilities including drop
tuning, capo tuning and true bypass coupled with the famous Whammy.

Since its introduction, the Whammy DT Pedal has already been met with resoundingly
positive reviews from musicians who have had a chance to demo it.

“The applications for this pedal are endless. This can be used with any style of
music, which makes it so powerful,” stated Ben Carter, Guitarist with BC Grooves.

“The Whammy DT is not just a one-trick pony; after playing through it, the DT
quickly revealed its value as a compositional tool,” added Kelly Ritchotte of

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 nine Whammy bending modes
from two-octaves up through two-octaves down, nine harmony bending modes, two 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 DigiTech Whammy DT is now available with an MSRP of $449.95.
