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.”
