So I've been thinking of getting a Whammy pedal lately and I was wondering why people seem to be all crazy about the Whammy I and if the Whammy IV is still just as good. Also If I get lucky on ebay or wherever and find a Whammy I for the same price which one should I get?
Thanks!

You're not going to find a Whammy I for the same price. Maybe double the price if you're lucky.
Telecaster - SG - Jaguar
Princeton Reverb, Extra Reverb
P-Bass - Mustang Bass
Apogee Duet 2 - Ableton Suite

Personally, I'd rather have the EHX HOG...Better tracking and harmonies than the whammy. Saved settings, and an expression pedal.


This. Whammy I is way overrated especially compared to a HOG.

Wow...I don't think I can afford a HOG. But I have found Whammy IV's for as low as $110 rather rare but I've seen it I just wish I had the money for it than

This thread could be re-titled to $500 U.S.D vs $150 U.S.D: which should I pay?
That's about the extent of it.

Spending $400+ on an original Whammy is absurd. It sounds slightly less digital and smoother, not exactly worth shelling out an extra $300+ for.

I just sold my whammy 1 on eBay For $620.00. I think the HOG is so much better.

To be honest though, whammy pedals are like fat girls they're fun for awhile! And in the end you get more space on your bed/pedalboard!
If you start a reply with: I have never played one but I have heard good things about it! Your opinion is invalid.

Whammy's are pretty overrated. I got one in a trade for a pedal I paid $100 CND flat for. I'd never pay more than that for one, the only thing I really use it for is bending ebow stuff.

The answer is the Whammy II.

Seriously, I have one and I'd rather have that little black mofo than a I or IV.
