Well I have a Boss OC3 as well as a DigiTech XP-100 Whammy Wah (same abilities as the Whammy and more).

Honestly, you should try them out if you can.

Foremost, the OC3 is basically an octave harmonizer, with controls & such for 1 octave below and 2 octaves below. The OC3 also has the distortion mode which I think isn't that bad (mess around with it, and you can sort of get like a CKY sound). It also has another mode which essentially allows you to play more than one note at a time without it sounding it utterly craptastic (it isn't perfect, but it's a pretty interesting feature/improvement). It's a good pedal that does an interesting sound, but it's really only capable of doing the one thing.

But the Whammy is basically a pitch shifter. Not only can it pitch shift 1 octave lower and 2 octaves lower, it can also pitch shift other intervals, like 1 octave higher, a 4th higher, etc.

I enjoy my OC3, and I got it because I liked the sound it gave me in the store. But realistically, I rarely use it. I use my Whammy Wah pedal A LOT more than my OC3.
