Best Pitch Shifter EVER!
30.09.2016
The Whammy DT is an amazing pedal.

Personal Uses:
It provides me as a guitarist the ability to harmonise with myself, this is perfect if you wish to play anything like Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Avenged Sevenfold, Kiss, Pantera if you can figure out what interval (harmony is being used) you can play literally any dual guitar riff/solo.

Features: The Whammy DT comes with a momentary foot switch on the 'DT' side which is extremely useful if you are playing a song in E and wish to drop tune to D (whole step down). The oct up + Dry is a really lovely feature if you are playing a clean song and want to emulate the sound of a 12 string guitar.
The Whammy itself track really well, it is a fantastic upgrade from the Whammy IV.

Sound: The sound is fantastic, there can bit a little noise (high pitch buzz) but if you have something like an Boss NS-2 it will clean up the signal just fine.
It works really well with a distorted signal, arguably it is as good with dirty signals as it is with clean ones.

Quality: It is cased in a solid metal chassis so there is no worry about it breaking, the only downside is that is can be tricky to change between the different settings e.g.
'1 oct up' - '5TH down' there is one simple solution for this though, purchase the Digitech FS3X Footswitch Pedal, this enables you to select which mode you want to use and go up or down on the display via 3 footswitches.

Overall : I believe the Whammy DT is a fantastic pedal, it can be used for any type of music, it also works well with bass but the Digitech Whammy Bass is specifically designed for bass, anyway, the pedal is a brilliant piece of kit and a fine addition to my pedalborad, I would strongly recommend purchasing it if you have the desire/need to.

Fun for hours.
JakePlaysDrums, 02.10.2020
Great for replicating well known sounds from famous users, or experimenting with new ones for your own material. I personally love the drop tuning and octave features equally as much as the Whammy itself.

Combines great with a fuzz pedal and humbuckers for a real gutpunch sound.

Also useful for branching out and trying new tunings without having to keep seperate instruments ready, or even tune an existing one. The tracking is fine except for on chords in lower tuning, which I tend to avoid now when using the product.

That said, if you wanna make some noises and add some variety to your toolset - you can't go wrong.

A pedalboard essential
Dub77, 21.05.2020
This pedal is a classic for a reason. Its sound is iconic, And its build quality is amazing. I was amazed when i tried it at how good the tracking is. The whammy DT comes with a separate set of controls for instant down/up tuning by semitones to full octave, as well as an octave and dry signal setting to mimic a 12 string guitar sound. Again, the tracking is brilliantly accurate.
The actual whammy pedal does take a bit of getting used to for full control and on its own, sounds quite harsh, but, thats what the effect is.
I love it and am glad to spend the extra €30 to get the Whammy DT over the regular Whammy 5, for the detune functions.

Pros.. sturdy, great sound, cool addition to your board.
Cons.. takes up a lot of space, but realistically thats the trade off, so not really a con.

As usual Thomann were a joy to deal with and so easy, its like a new addiction for me to order with Thomann.

Much more than just a pedal
marinj, 24.02.2021
Many features in this little acessory it is a must have for me. Not only do you have your classic Whammy pedal, you can down shift or up shift for thoose songs that are not in your original tuning, no more need to detune or change guitar. OVerall quality is very durable. I recommend to use it with additional pedal from DigiTech so you can change every setting with your feet. I guess the only con I have is a little delay when you detune a couple of octaves 2 or 3 octaves, but it is not really that noticeable, and it consumes a lot of electrical power.
All in all this is lots of fun for imagination. :D
