The WH-1s are vintage, hard to find and expensive (as if you couldn't have guessed). There are a few versions between the current productions and the WH-1, but the big difference is that the WH-1's chips were produced by a separate company that had it down to a black magic (lol), I just can't remember the company name. Digitech has to produce the circuit chips themselves now, and they're, well, not quite as organic sounding.

Function-wise, the WH-4 has a few more features and are relatively easy to find. I've seen some recently for a little over $100 USED. I like mine, and bought a Napalm pedals Blenda to add some extra functionality.

PS: I'm pretty sure the effect in that song is the oscillation from a delay unit.
Maximum volume yields maximum goats.

one of the newer one that looks similar to the WH-1 is not too bad. my XP-100 version was alright, but got a bit 'steppy' sounding on certain patches.
punk isn't dead, it's always smelled that way.

stay away from the Whammy IIs. Those guys will suck your tone right out the tour bus window!
