They're different. Wah pedals are like a tone control cutting of different frequencies in different positions; giving the wah sound , whereas a whammy pedal can raise or lower the pitch.

Nope. Wah pedals sweep through a specific frequency controlled by the pedal, which creates that great wah-wah sound you know and love. Whammy pedals control the pitch of the guitar signal, raising and lowering it with the pedal.

are wah and whammy pedals the same things if not then wats the differance?


peace out dudes


way different. The whammy has a harmonizer and a octave bend. It makes the sounds like on RATM's killing in the name solo and a bunch of other tom morello stuff.

A wah-wah make the guitar go wah-wah

there you go

This is what a Whammy sounds like.

Since there is no such thing as perfect tone, and every rig has differences (however slight they may be), I hereby declare this claim as bullshit.
