Digitech WHAMMY-V 5th Generation Whammy Pitch Shifting Pedal



The DigiTech Whammy brings you the same hair-raising “dive bomb” effects, gripping pitch bends and lightning harmony shifts you are looking for plus a few new twists. Bend entire chords with the new chordal pitch shifting setting, and execute classic single note bends.




Classic Whammy Interface

The Whammy interface features the same legacy Whammy pitch bending options you’re accustomed to along with some additional pitch bend settings from the Whammy DT.

MIDI In for Remote Control of Whammy Effects

The Whammy features a MIDI input for receiving incoming MIDI data. MIDI messages can select a Whammy or Drop Tune effect and set whether these effects are in an active or bypassed state. MIDI CC messages can then be used to control the Whammy Expression Pedal position.
