When I get my new guitar It will be one without a floyd because they are too much hassle. I want to get a cheap whammy copy since I don't want to spend $550 on a Sigitech Whammy. Any ideas?
A whammy pedal will not do good-sounding divebombs, if that's what you're trying to achieve.
That has nothing to do with what I asked.
go on www.axesrus.com they have some trems there, but as you're in australia i think it might cost to ship it sout there (free in UK) or sites like it.
One of the Digitech processors has a Whammy effect built in...the RP90 I think. But I'm not sure how well it replicates the original.
The Boss PS-5 Super Shifter is very similar. I'm not sure about prices in Aus though, I'm in the UK. Needs a separate expression pedal for Whammy-like control, but most features can be used with no problems with the standard pedal.
