View Full Version : Digitech Whammy or Whammy DT?

After hearing raves about the new 5th version, I'm getting ready to order a Whammy pedal.

I've read over all the specs for both, but can't decide whether to go with the basic Whammy or get the DT. The extra $100 is no big deal, but the extra size of the DT kind of makes me hesitate.

Anyone out there audition both? Which would you choose?

I love the DT. It is big though.

The drop tune feature pretty well on the DT, IMO.

A bit of sustain loss and latency does occur, but running a boost or compressor after the DT pretty much clears it up.

I had the Morpheus drop tune and did not like it. Added a chorusy effect along with a bit of latency. Very nasty sounding. The DT does not do this.

If you don't need to drop tune, get the Whammy 5.
