    This feels real good. My experience with DigiTech is a pleasant one. I bought a TSR-24 version 2 that didn't have any bass parameters in it. I contacted Harmon and after speaking to one of the techs about the lack of bass presets he said he would burn me a chip with the bass presets in it and for a low price it was sent to me along with installation instructions. A great company to deal with in my experience and hopefully the bass whammy gets reissued. Add my name to the petition.

    I use a generic Whammy IV Guitar Pedal and it's pretty fun with Bass.

    I have a Pitchfactor (upgrading to an H9 eventually) but i would totally drop coin if they reissued the Bass Whammy. I used to have one and it was fun and sounded great.

    Just wanted to say you're doing a great job with Digitech's online presence. I remember in the late 90's Digitech was kind of written off as a cheap multi-fx brand for the most part. You guys have done a great job with the company in the last 5-10 years or so.

    If they end up rereleasing the Bass Whammy because of a petition, we have to start one for the Akai Deep Impact

    I'm pretty sure I signed that petition. I'd buy a Bass Whammy!
     
  19. Phil O'Keefe from harmonycentral asked the Akai reps about it at NAMM and they said #1 they had no interest in a reissue and #2 some of the components were no longer available.

    Not sure what wouldn't be available in a digital pedal like the DI though.

    Here's the original thread:
    http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f36/bass-whammy-petition-382040/

    The user who started it (Charlatan_001) is not a regular TBer- he hasn't logged onto TalkBass in five years, so you'll likely not be able to get in contact with him here. He also hasn't posted on Ultimate Guitar, the forum that he did frequent with the same username, in several years, so he may no longer have an online presence.
