DigiTech Whammy DT
The new Whammy DT adds new capabilities including drop tuning, capo tuning, and true bypass coupled with the Whammy.
The Whammy DT has the Whammy pitch shifting effects, an expanded selection of pitch bending capabilities including 9 Whammy bending modes from 2-octaves up through 2-octaves down, 9 harmony bending modes, 2 detune modes, and the Dive Bomb six octaves down effect.
The Whammy DT also lets guitar and bass players modify their tuning without having to change instruments or break the musical mood with awkward tuning adjustments for the next song, the company says. The Whammy DT can drop down or capo up seven half-steps or an entire octave from where the guitar or bass is tuned, they sat. In addition, the Whammy DT features a momentary footswitch for real time stepped pitch shifting to create "Hammer-On" and "Pull-Off" type effects. Players can get a drop or raise in the pitch of the notes they are playing by stepping on and holding the footswitch – then releasing it to return to pitch for a dramatic effect during solos and riffs. The various effects can be selected via the pedal’s two selector knobs and dual set of LEDs indicators.
The Whammy DT includes ¼-inch guitar input and output, a MIDI input that allows control of the pedal from an external MIDI device, and an external 9 volt DC power adapter. The Whammy DT is built with a metal chassis, pedal and footswitch. The Whammy DT can be used with the optional DigiTech FS3X three-button footswitch controller..
