So I got my Whammy IV this afternoon, and plugged it up, went through all the presets, and said to myself, "Now what?" But I just sat down with it for a couple hours, and I'm actually coming up with practical uses for it. The detuner is killer, for example. We've dropped the keys on a handful of songs to where I need to hit a low D, and I don't have time to detune manually or pick up a second bass that I don't want to bring. It's a tad glitchy on the D but nobody will ever notice on a gig. It's got good sounding octaves, too. Not quite as clean as the Micro Pog but they're believable on a gig. I'm finding more use for it as an octave divider than I thought I would. And the detuner makes a nifty chorus should I ever need to make people's teeth ache One thing that I wish it would do, though, is whammy in 4ths and 5ths instead of just octaves. Molten Voltage apparently does a mod that lets you do that, but I don't dig how the knob is hard to change on the fly. Too bad they dropped those preset switches...that would have been the ticket. Got to read up on what you can do with its MIDI control. I hope it does more than just stepping through presets with a MIDI switch. Anyway, I might have a hard time finding a use for thise Micro Pog I got coming this week. I kind of thought the Whammy was a gimmicky pedal without much practical use unless you do solos, but I'm pleasantly surprised by its usefulness. It might actually be a keeper.
