    MUST. HAVE. Thankfully I have a big pedalboard!

    On a completely unrelated note: anyone want a lightly used wh-4? Only $150! LOL

    Pedals can sit on the side of your board, I hate my WH-1on a slanted board, and this probably isn't much bigger than a pitchfactor and a Boss FV-500 pedal. If it sounds good I'm in.

    This is good news. Very good news. I hope that the drop tuning sounds better than the morpheus (that little phasey thing when playing clean).

    Agreed. Size fail. And price fail.

    Definite size fail. I would pick up the new morpheus bomber pedal over this. It's like a whammy, but with pretty much perfect tracking on chords. so you can do the drop tune, capo, or whammy style bends and dive bombs. I saw a demo of it at the MIAC show the other day in Toronto and it was really cool. I might replace my whammy with it..... Although it doesn't have any of the harmonies the whammy has, which I actually use quite a bit.

    It tracks perfect? Is it totall different from the original Drop Tune. Cause the original tracked horribly, I thought. That's something I worry about with this new Whammy too. I'd be interested in a much better Morpheus.
