Over the years, I’ve seen plenty of DigiTech Whammies on various Pedal Line Friday submissions. It’s safe to say that this is a very popular pedal for certain genres of guitar. When I think of the DigiTech Whammy, Tom Morello and Jack White always come to mind, where the extreme capabilities of the pedal changed a style of guitar play. Very cool. So how do you make a great thing better? Well, you need to take it up a notch and they did with the DigiTech Whammy DT Drop Tune.
The DigiTech Whammy is a classic foot controlled pitch shifter, but the DigiTech Whammy DT Drop Tune takes it to the next level. You can now step up or down 7 half steps or an entire octave which is controlled by a dedicated footswitch. There is a momentary footswitch for “hammer-on” or “pull-off” effects.
Searching around YouTube, I found this 13 minute video that really shows everything that this pedal can do with some commentary, but mostly application by RobChappers
