HARMAN's DigiTech today announced its next-generation Whammy
pedal, featuring chordal Whammy pitch-shifting, additional Whammy
intervals and true bypass operation is now available at music
stores around the globe. The new Whammy retains the legendary
Whammy sound that made it one of the most iconic pedals recognized
by guitarists around the world, while adding never-before-available
"Guitarists worldwide have embraced the original Whammy and now
our new Whammy's chord-shifting and classic pitch-bending modes
make it one of the most musically expressive pedals ever," said Rob
Urry, vice president, HARMAN Professional Division and general
manager of Signal Processing and Amplifier Business Units. "We're
really excited about the many creative sounds that this pedal
brings to artists, and a number of pros have already adopted the
new Whammy as an integral part of their tone."
The Whammy lets guitar and bass players raise and lower their
tuning by up to two octaves, to create pitch shifts from subtle to
extreme and dramatic musical effects not possible with any other
pedal. The Whammy now incorporates new pitch-shifting technologies
that enable the player to bend entire chords up or down while
keeping all the notes in the chord perfectly in tune. The Whammy
also keeps its signature Classic single-note mode that has made the
pedal one of the most recognizable in rock and contemporary music,
along with nine Harmony two-note interval settings and two Detune
Offering true bypass means that the signal from the guitar is
completely unaffected by the Whammy when it's switched off,
maintaining all the purity of the guitar signal when the player
doesn't want anything altering his or her sound. This can be
especially important when using a lot of pedals on a pedalboard.
The Whammy won't alter your sound - until you want it to!
The Whammy also includes 1/4-inch inputs and outputs, a MIDI
input that allows control of the pedal from an external MIDI
device, and a 9-volt DC power input. The Whammy employs
high-quality 24-bit/96kHz analog-to-digital and digital-to analog
converters for clean, smooth pitch-bending sound. An on/off switch
engages and disengages the Whammy effect, and a "Classic/Chords"
switch lets players select either mode. The Whammy is built to
withstand the rigors of the road, with a rugged all-metal chassis,
pedal and footswitch with a bold "Whammy" logo proudly
The DigiTech Whammy is currently available at $299.95
