I'm not sure if a pedal like this exists, but I thought about how limited my Whammy pedal was in relation to floating tremolos and my lack of a Volume pedal, and just was wondering why isn't there a pedal that really does all of this for a decent price ($200?) with some good sounding effects, not super synthetic and electronic sounding? Something along the lines of all the expression pedals, like a Wah, a Volume, a Whammy, and then a Floating Trem version of the Whammy with pulling and pushing the whammy bar without messing with the settings. I drew up some ideas, nothing too technical but some regular designs, most of this is based off a digitech whammy. Suggestions, comments, ideas, maybe I can construct this myself? All input appreciated.

Good idea.. I've had some similar thoughts, but unfortunately it's the technical side that's the limiting factor (at least as far as I know)... I'm trying to learn how to build pedals to make a whammy pedal that just goes up a half step, a full step, or a step and a half (instead of a full octave) for some more usable bends. I've also been wanting to build a pedal that goes from clean to distorted or delay or tremolo (with an expression pedal); essentially, more dynamic control of the effects with your feet other than just on/bypass.

Yeah this is the kind of stuff I'm looking for, the whammy is fun but it has it's limits as to how useful it can be sometimes.. That's a good idea! I never thought of having a whammy do stepped bends.

lol yeah man on the whammy pedal, the only setting I really use are the octave up or octave down (and the harmony setting too). Sometimes the drop D tuning is okay too. The bend setting adds a chorus-y effect even when the pedal isn't pressed. But notice how the tracking on the pedal is a little off/distorts and the pedal sucks some tone, so I think there's some technical limitations to the type of stuff we're thinking of doing. But like I said, hopefully some guys like us could learn to make a quality whammy-like pedal =)
