Hello guys,

I am looking for a pedal Harmonizer (3rd, 4rd, 6rd etc ..) , but I hesitate between two model :

http://www.thomann.de/fr/boss_ps6.htm

What would you advise me?

One is a bit in the "multi-effects" type while the other is more specialized in harmonizer I find.

Thank you in advance and sorry for my bad english, I'm french.

Have a good day !

Bye,

Just for the harmonies I'd get the boss.
Though, I'd get the whammy and play with it and use the other (in my opinion more useful) features.
Name's Luca.

Clue: amplifiers amplify so don't turn it on if you need quiet.

I have the harmonist, and depending on what set I play, I use it as a harmoniser, whammy or even off-chorus. I love it, and it takes up a lot less space than a whammy

The actual harmonizer (2 note signals, the original plus the harmony note) on the whammy is not that good or versatile. For that, get something else. But for a full wet pitch shift (one signal shifted up, Tom Morello-style) you'd get the whammy.
Charvel So-Cal (SH6TB/N, killswitch), Jackson RR5FR (TB6/Jazz, Drop C). Joyo pxl pro.
Loop1=Crybaby from hell, Boss PS-5, Seymour Duncan 805 or Green Rhino, EQD Hoof or Earthbound Audio Super Collider. Loop 1 into ISP Decimator II.
Loop 2 (FX loop)-Line6 M9, TC Spark Mini. Loop 2 into mxr 10band. All into a Peavey Triple XXX 212, Ibanez IL15.

For once, I'd say BOSS. It works decently.
Judging by your avatar you're gonna play some In Flames melodies, eh?

Digitech's "harmonist" functions are not auto-harmonies like the BOSS which switches between minor and major 3rds/5ths/6ths etc. You can only do perfect 3rds/blahblah with the digitech.

Digitech does have a pedal like that though called the harmonyman.
