The Legend Gets Better Over Time. DigiTech Whammy 5, a Two Mode Pitch-Shift Effect with True Bypass

The legendary DigiTech Whammy 5 pedal is the premier pitch-shifting pedal for any guitarist’s board, and it only gets better with time. In addition to the classic Whammy sound, the 5th generation added chordal Whammy pitch-shifting and true bypass.

DigiTech Whammy artists have won over 60 Grammys® using its unique pitch-shifting sound to enhance their music. Its songs echo the hallways of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame® and generate acclaim on over 700 million albums around the world. There is no doubt why Whammy is one of the most common sights on guitarists’ pedalboards.

The DigiTech Whammy 5 can bring new depth to your artistry. Turn your solo into raging, rebellious screams of tone or tame your crowd with highly expressive, ambient chordal bends. Energize your audience with a scratchy note frenzy, bring them in and out of the sound tunnel with musical bursts, or carry them through an existential exploration of full-fretboard pitch translation. The Whammy puts expression into the expression pedal.

The Latest 5th generation of the DigiTech Whammy is closer in terms of look and size to the original than the fourth-generation model. This might not seem like something worth mentioning, but if you’ve ever played an original Whammy, it’s kind of a big deal. They were pretty small pedals, which gave them a very different—some say more immediate—feel beneath the player’s foot. Under the hood, the pedal’s pitch-shifting algorithms have been updated for smoother response. The update also includes true-bypass switching and 9V DC power-supply operation so the pedal can finally run off of the power bricks on most pedalboards without a special adapter. There are also four additional Whammy modes taken from the Whammy DT pedal. And a polyphonic pitch-shifting mode has been added too, just in case you don’t like the Whammy’s chaotic, glitchy reaction when playing chords (don’t fret noisemakers, you can switch between the two). The Whammy IV’s drop-tune mode has been scrapped, along with the dedicated dry-output jack, though you can achieve the same effect using the new, 2nd DN mode.

The DigiTech Whammy has added new dimensions and textures to countless songs and is still one of the most fun and interesting pedals you can add to your arsenal. Pick up the DigiTech Whammy 5 today and hear for yourself!
