I had an original black Whammy version 2 about ten years ago but it was flimsy and I killed it. Worked great while it lasted as you can toggle the settings with your foot. After many years I had to buy a new one. This new version is built like a tank but they returned to having a dial to adjust settings like on all other versions except the flimsy black one. Oh well. The sound is a tad trebly and there is even more settings that I don't need. It still is not an intelligent pitch shifter that plays according to scale and key. I tend to use it in the settings of my old dead unit. The octave +1 or +2( Satriani or Morello) or octave -1 ( like a whammy bar when using a guitar with a fixed bridge).The harmony settings I use are 4ths,5ths and octave above or below. Anything else is awful. An added bonus I use in this one is the Classic(warbling)Chords switch. Nice touch. It eliminates that annoying warble in older pedals so you can play whole chords and sound somewhat like a 12 string.

I was in a White Stripes cover band for a few years, i owned the V4 the entire time we were gigging which was 2/3 times a months for about 3 years. I'm not easy on my gear and it took the assault with no issues. i bought the V5 because well newer must be better right? I'm very impressed by the chords addition can get a decent 12 string sound. if you're getting bored or want to add a layer sure theres other pedals but this is probably the most versatile for your money.

Always liked Whammy for its whammy effect but not so much for intelligent pitch shifting. I tend to use the octave above or below settings and 4th or 5th intervals. Using 3rds would be nice but as I said needs to be intelligent to work right with a given scale. The whammy settings I use are mostly oct plus 1or 2. Haven't tried the dive bomb yet but that would be handy on a guitar with a fixed bridge. Originally owned a Whammy 2, which sounded good but was flimsy and not solidly built.This new one is built like a tank.

I bought this pedal because I play a lot of Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave. I do use it for some other stuff but if you aren't into that specific sound do not buy it. It is a little bit pricy but with the sound it creates and the quality of the product it is a great buy.
