    I think im going to put my bass whammy on ebay right now!!!

    BTW, they arn't that good. Tracking can be very poor and can sound fake.

    Yeah it's also very difficult to use it for musical purposes unless you're REALLY experimental. The XP-100 Whammy Wah is a much better deal.

    I don't really think so! :eyebrow:
    I've both had the XP-100 and the Bass Whammy... the second one is much better...
    Maybe the WH-4 is eaven better, but it can't go to the 4th down (while the Bass Whammy can't reach 2 octaves down and up)...

    they're harder to find now. and since this one has UK adaptor, I could see how it fetched more.

    I've sold a particular rare CD on ebay, it went for $99US. I've seen the same CD sell for 100+ GBP! go figure? same CD. Could it be that because it's listed in GBP, people in Europe bid higher? ie: since alot of stuff is more expensive in the UK, they're used to paying more? ie: like buying a $50 steak in Tokyo?

    Well I bought my Digitech Bass whammy off ebay here in the UK and paid just over £100 bout 6 months ago, must be a bargain then! But u know what ebay is like, people do over pay for things!

    I agree.

    I sold mine, 360$.

    I thought it was a very high price. If only I knew it could go even higher... :meh:

    Amazing...

    Everyone I've spoken to say these things suck, and to buy a Regular Whammy pedal. I did, and it's great.

    $200 new at any supermusicianstore.

    You're just right but for example I chose to utilize the Bass Whammy instead of the WH-4 because the Bass can reach the 2nd up and down and the 4th down... while the WH-4 can't...

    I don't think the WH-4 can do a 5th up/OCT up like the bass whammy can
