But what is the Whammy?
The DigiTech Whammy is a pitch-shifter effects pedal which gives musicians the ability to shift the pitch of their electric guitar up or down in real time by rocking a treadle pedal up and down with their foot, similar to how a wah pedal affects the tone of a guitar based on the position of the treadle.
It is controlled by a rocker and a single rotary knob, from which 16 presets could be selected; five "Whammy" effects, nine "Harmony" effects, and two "Detune" effects.
Notable musicians who have made use of the WH-1 Whammy include:
Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine.
Jonny Greenwood of Radiohead.
Buckethead (most notably on his song "Jordan")
The Edge of U2.
David Bryant of Godspeed You! Black Emperor.
