i was looking at the Digitech Whammy Pedal whch is pretty pricey. so i found out that it's used as an octave pedalas well (correct me if i'm wrong), and i was wondeng if my Boss OC-3 would be necessary if i got the whammy pedal. should i sell it?

The Whammy is a pitch shifter, the OC-3 is an octave harmonizer, they're different things.

And I'd delete your other thread.

Cheap amps are "that bad". They suck up your tone like cocaine at Kate Moss' party.

Dimebag used them. Cool pedal, I'd like to play with one too. Your boss oc-3 isn't necessary, but could be fun to play around with the digitech wammy.

It's a very cool pedal, it does a lot more than just octaves. However it sucks a lot of tone which I guess can be fixed when recording, but it isnt very noticable in a live situation, at least it isnt for me. +1 for that.

It's not god-awfully noticable , but when you sit down by yourself and use it, you will notice it pretty easily. I'd still recommend getting it. Just dont leave it 'on' when not in use.

I find it only sucks tone when it's placed after your distortion. Running my Whammy in to my DS-1 sounds just fine.

I usually run my first in the chain, seems to be less noticable.

Isn't the DS-1 a tone sucker anyways?
