i own a digitech whammy and i love it...

Basically, its a harmonizer and a floyd rose, in a pedal.

If you listen to "killing in the name" by rage against the machine, and "like a stone" by audioslave, it's a digitech whammy on those solo's

it looks like a wah because you need the expression pedal for controling the pitch variation to make it sound similar to a whammy bar, as the name implies.

I had someone ask me to record clips of the whammy pedal, I'll try and get a few clips recorded this weekend, if I have the time. It's a pitch shifter, harmonizer, and has a detune effect (sounds just like a chorus pedal, it's actually your signal going in and out of tune and you control the intensity with the treadle.)

Actually, don't mind my last post, it isn't a complete waste of money. I just wouldn't buy it because I know that I wouldn't use it...ever.

If you listen to dragon force, they use it quite a lot.

Buckethead uses it quite a bit too (check out Soothsayer). Anyways, they friggin own. Another guy I can think of that uses it is Jack White on 7 Nation Army (he plays what sounds kinda like a bass riff on the guitar using the pedal).

If you're looking for songs with the whammy pedal being used:

Joe Satriani - Cool #9
Joe Satriani - Raspberry Jam Delta V
Joe Satriani - Searching
Steve Vai - The Animal
Steve Vai - Touching Tongues (my favorite whammy lick is the chorus of this song.)

Yes, the guys from Dragonforce use the whammy pedal... don't even waste your time with DF.

Joe Satriani - Searching

nice, best Satch whammy song, IMO. Dimebag used it quite a bit as well. cant think of any pantera ATM, but from Damageplan, "Breathing New Life", "Pride", "Explode", and "Save Me" have the whammy pedal used in them.
