The Digitech Whammy WH-1 Original is the first of its kind and for this reason is highly sought after.  The pedal is an analog one and has basic 1/4 inch connections.  It is powered by the power supply that comes with it and isn't rack mountable.


Using the Digitech Whammy WH-1 Original isn't hard at all as it is pretty basic in make up.  You simply have a foot controller and a knob to choose what interval you want to use.  You can choose everything from an octave up to 5ths and pretty much everything in between.  Beyond this there really isn't anything more to the pedal and after playing with it for a few minutes you should be able to figure out everything you need to know about the pedal.  For this reason a manual isn't necessary even though the manual for this pedal is put together well.


As far as whammy pedals go, the Digitech Whammy WH-1 Original is probably the best sounding one as the tone quality is outstanding.  The tracking is also great and I find it easy to control the pedal and get the sounds that I am looking to get.  I probably like using the single octave up the best as I find using two octaves up is kind of ear piercing and I usually don't have any use for the other intervals, although I can see why they would be cool to use as well.  Even though the other whammy pedals sound pretty great as well, it just seems as if they got it right on the first try and the WH-1 Original is the best.


I first used the Digitech Whammy WH-1 Original about five years ago and even though I now own a different version of this pedal, I would rather have this version as I think it is the best one.  Since it is the original whammy and a lot of people are looking for the original one, this pedal is pretty expensive if you can find it used - almost double of what you pay for the newer one.  I can't say that it is worth the difference in price, but if you are a collector or simply must have the original, I can pretty much guarantee that you will love this pedal.  However, if you are on a budget for the pedal I would probably recommend picking up the newest version as it will cost you much less.  All in all, the Digitech Whammy WH-1 Original is a classic pedal that every guitar player should witness.
