No it doesn't. Do you know what a whammy pedal does?

but for those that don't want to drop 200 on a pedal for 1 song... It will be close enough. I have a whammy pedal and I prefer the sound I get from turning the bass way up.

anyone else think it's funny that in the liner notes of that song they claim that no digital effects were used?

You must be thinking of a Wah pedal. Wah messes around with the bass and treble, Whammy is a pitch shifter.

Try getting a fishing hook and shoving it down Jack White's throat... then pull really hard on the line and the sound of his larynx should create the effect you're looking for.

No, I'm thinking of the whammy pedal. The whammy pedal digitaly slows down and speeds up the sound waves to change the pitch. To me it sound fake and I don't really like it. If you turn the bass way up on your amp it will magnify the bass your guitar puts out that is usualy too quiet to here. It isnt giving you the same low tone you get from the whammy pedal but it gives the illusion of being lower.

BTW anybody in the UK want to buy a whammy pedal?

The wah pedal is a filter so it does exactly the opposite of what I suggested.

They didn't use digitial effects, they used an Octave pedal, which isn't digital.

Yes, me. How much?

^So he didn't use a whammy pedal then??? How does the octive pedel work if it isn't digital?

100 quid for my pedal. It comes with a USA power supply. A UK power supply will set you back 30 quid. My daughter played with it the day I bought and since then it's just sat in the box. I bought it 6 months ago.

Jack White uses a number of effects to create his powerful live sound, most notably a Digitech whammy pedal to create the rapid modulations in pitch he uses in his solos.[11] The guitars he uses live are two 1964 JB Hutto Montgomery Airlines, a Harmony Rocket, a 1970s-era Crestwood Astral II, and a 1950s-era Kay Hollowbody. In concert with an MXR Micro-Amp and Electro-Harmonix Big Muff Pi Distortion/Sustainer, White can produce a very distinctive sound. In 2005, for the single "Blue Orchid", White employed the use of a new Electro-Harmonix creation, the Polyphonix Octave Generator (POG). Similar to (but more versatile than) the Whammy pedal, the POG lets the user mix in several octave effects into one along with the dry signal. He plugs this setup into a 1970s Fender Twin Reverb and two 100-Watt Sears Silvertone 6x10 combo amplifiers.[12]

White also produces a "fake" bass tone by playing the Kay Hollowbody and JB Hutto Montgomery Airline guitars through a Digitech Whammy pedal set to one octave down for a very thick, low, rumbling sound, which he uses most notably on the songs "Seven Nation Army" and "Hardest Button to Button".[11][13]

On occasion, White also plays other instruments, such as a Black F-Style mandolin ("Little Ghost"), piano (such as on "Denial Twist"), electric piano (like on "The Air Near My Fingers"), marimba (such as on "The Nurse"), drums, tambourine and ney."

And Jack never uses anything digital. He is analog only.

I'm no pedal genius so I dunno, but I'm pretty sure that Octave pedals have been around since before digital effects were invented.

he uses a Whammy pedal, according to you, which I (apparently incorrectly) thought he didn't, and Whammy pedals are about as digital as you can get. I'm pretty sure you need to check that...
