This product is currently not available for purchase.

While fads and fashions may come and go, the true classics will always be in demand. It's been nearly a decade since DigiTech introduced the mind bending effects of the Whammy pedal to the world, and that original design has been in demand ever since, with bands such as Radiohead, The White Stripes and Yeah Yeah Yeahs helping to keep the Whammy a popular FX pedal.

It's been nearly a decade since DigiTech introduced the mind bending effects of the Whammy pedal to the world, and that original design has been in demand ever since.

The same smooth pitch bends, rich detuning, accurate dive bombs, and fast tracking harmony shifts, which were responsible for the instant success of the original Whammy pedal have been resurrected in the new incarnation of the DigiTech Whammyœ Pedal. Painstaking efforts were made to recreate the exact sounds that made the DigiTech Whammy such a popular and indispensable effect.

Every feature of the original WH-1 has been included in the new Whammy; From the rotary preset selection knob, to the Ferrari red color; from the mechanical momentary switch, to the exact same interval selections. However, the new Whammy has added the versatility of MIDI control, making this timeless effect flexible enough for any situation. The new "Dive Bomb" Preset gives the effect of a Floyd Rose whammy bar pushed all the way to the body of the guitar, and 16 LEDs provide a visual indication of your Preset selection even on dimly lit stages.

Digitech Whammy Reviews



Amazing pedal, very enjoyable to use and to mess with. Have come up with some strange sounds and some great riffs using it. Only problem is when you have it on the 1 or 2 Oct high or low the off position of the pedal should be your normal tone but this slightly knocks it off but is noticable. I advise testing this out properly before buying.
