DigiTech Bass Whammy, Legendary Pitch Shifting Effect for Bass Guitar


The next generation DigiTech Bass Whammy uses the most advanced pitch detection and polyphonic note tracking technology to create the world’s best pitch shifting effect pedal optimized for bass. The Bass Whammy maintains the classic settings from the original with many modern upgrades. With two different tracking modes, Classic and Chord, the DigiTech Bass Whammy gives players the ability to recreate the shift glitch effects from the original or get the smooth pitch shift effect. Chord mode uses advanced polyphonic tracking algorithms for a more exact and smooth pitch shift effect while Classic maintains the tracking artifacts of the original Whammy. The Bass Whammy is true bypass, MIDI controllable, and uses a 9V DC power supply to easily integrate into your existing pedalboard.

DigiTech has rolled out the next-generation Bass Whammy, which builds on the beloved quirks of the original while also offering more modern options for those who like the concept but prefer sleeker execution. The layout is quite easy to navigate. Like the other DigiTech Whammys, there’s a knob for dialing in the desired whammy or harmony selection, but there’s also a MIDI input option. 

Indie-rockers and more experimentally minded players will appreciate that DigiTech included the monophonic classic mode. For these guys, the digital artifacts and somewhat glitchy sound of the original Bass Whammy weren’t a problem—they were part of its charm. Meanwhile, those with more traditional tastes will probably leave the pedal in chords mode, because its algorithm is much more accurate, and the modulated tones sound more robust and natural in this mode.

The DigiTech Bass Whammy has always been a fun pedal that also happens to offer a lot of possibilities for bassists to push their creativity into uncharted territory. And thanks to the latest version’s classic and chords modes, the potential is even greater now. It’s got the weirdness factor that cult collectors crave, but it’s also compelling for those with more particular hi-fi sensibilities. The dive-bomb and chorus-type effects are nice bonuses, too. Best of all, the new incarnation won’t break the bank and it has more features than the original version.
