A whammy bar is a metal rod that comes out of your guitars bridge. You can push it down and the bridge comes out of the body of the guitar.
This makes the strings more loose, and therefore makes the pitch deepen.

And there are double-locking whammy pars that you can either push down or pull up, which can lower and raise the pitch of your strings.

^twould be funny if every time you pressed the whammy bar the bridge just popped out and fell to the ground. . . Or shot out and hit someone in the eye. . .
