This pedal is great upgrade from Whammy 4. Finally the pedal is true bypass and when it's on, it doesn't suck your tone. There are also now two modes for single notes (classic) and other for chords. In chord mode the pitch shifted chords are relatively well in tune as where as on Whammy 4 you got weird wobbly effect. In single mode (classic) you have the Whammy 4 wobbles and single note tracking should be faster. The difference is quite small. Another improvement is that finally this pedal works with typical 9V adapter.

In addition to most used octave up and down pitch shift this pedal many interesting interval combination for you to try.

The option to control the pitch interval and amount by MIDI is really great in recording process as you can program the movement of the expression pedal in your DAW and send it to Whammy. It will save you from many takes as you need to only concentrate on your playing.

I think this is the best version yet, in future I would like to see even more thoughtout MIDI possibilites with thru and out options.

Great for expanding your horizons

A very specific dynamic pedal with great sound. The options for harmony are plentiful, the detuning feature sounds ok (not fantastic) and the option to swtich between Classic (patchy) and Chords (Clean) makes it hipster friendly!

Slight volume raise but not a massive issue

Great pedal

There are loads of things you can do with this pedal, it is very versatile and can be used with almost any type of music.
Some of the options allow you to make really crazy sounds like Tom Morello Or Jack White but can also be used subtly to make your sound more unique.
I play all kinds of music from Blues to heavy Stoner Metal and the whammy can be used in loads of ways that fit right in with anything.

My only criticism would be The pedal comes with a Harman power adapter, which if you live in the uk you'd probably need to find another power supply as the two plugs are for Europe and the US.
But as a whole this is an amazing pedal and for the price Thomann is selling it for you should definitely get one.
