DigiTech Whammy 5th Generation

Pedal type


It was impossible not to include the legendary Whammy pedal on this list. Operating on the same principle as the original pieces back from the late 1980s, the fifth generation of this wacky-sounding pitch-shifting effect takes the things to a whole new level.

It works with two separate modes, the “classic” one that pitches individual notes, and the chordal one that pitches entire chords. There are also nine modes for harmony and another nine modes for the well-known whammy system. You can also use it to pitch up or pitch down your guitar’s entire tuning with it.

It’s a fairly versatile pedal that comes in handy for pitching, ultimately creating unusual and unique-sounding synth-like lead sections.
