    Taken from Eddie Breckenridge's quote on Thrice's website:
    Go from there.
    As for a Bass Whammy, check around eBay and the online classified sites. I think there's quite a few people who will tell you the newer Whammy 4 works just as well or better than the Bass Whammy.

    It sounds like a chorus. Maybe he just used it while recording that album and hasn't used it since...

    Maybe almost as good, but the bass whammy still kicks IV's butt in low note tracking and having better modes of pitch shifts.

    The Search Function is like a shovel. Besides buried treasure, you're liable to strike a few graves, rusty old GAS pipes, sewage lines, and livewires. There's a reason cities issue permits for that kind of digging. ;)
