    Digitech Red Whammy. A few months old. Works great. You know the score. This is the remixed version with the DiveBomb and al the other stuff.

    I like the Detune settings, and the Octave up is killer.

    Looking for £100 Inc Shipping to UK

    [NOTEABLE: bass users include Doug Wimbish, listen to Living Colours "Flying" for a great example of bass with this very whammy.]

    Pm, or email or reply to this thread.

    Free bump.

    FWIW, the most amazing use of this type of pedal by a bass player, IMHO is by Reed Mathis of the Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey. They are a 3 peice fusion/jazz band. Bass, keys, drums. Reed does the most amazing lead lines using his jazz and one of these whammy pedals.

    If your into avante garde jazz I highly recommend you check out Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey.

    Are these available readily in the shops?

    (I'm a try before you buy kind of person if possible, just not the exact one I buy)

    Yes, he uses the whammy to great extent as atldeadhead said. Live, I've also seen him use an Ernie Ball volume pedal and a Boss RV3? It's the one with reverb and delay. He's also got a Snarling Dogs wah & he used to put a post card underneath it so it wouldn't click closed all the way. Sometimes he puts on the whammy and the wah and "controls" them with the volume pedal. The guy also uses an octave down with his upright, but that's another story.

    Do the bump.
