Whammy Ricochet

Pitch Shift Pedal

SRP £129.00 inc VAT

The Whammy Ricochet lets you bounce your playing up or down in pitch in controlled or crazy shifts. A momentary switch and customisable independent rise and fall time ballistics, allow you to get the Whammy action you know and love without the use of a treadle. Just hold your foot on the foot-switch and let the Ricochet do the rest. Seven pitch selections: 2nd, 4th, 5th, 7th, Octave, Double Octave, and Octave+Dry, as well as a toggle to select up or down for the selected pitch. The Whammy Ricochet also has latching foot-switch mode so you can rise or fall to pitch and stay there, and an LED ladder that shows your shift trajectory at all times. All these controls combine to create classic Whammy pitch-shifting as well as new sounds never heard before

Buy Now: Welcome back to ProGuitarShop and Today we're rallying around the Ricochet, from DigiTech. Taking the same guts from DigiTech's game-changing Whammy pedal, the Ricochet removes the foot pedal, allowing space-strapped guitarists to experience the pitch-perfect Whammy experience in a much smaller enclosure. To replicate the foot pedal in real time, the Whammy Ricochet relies on a momentary switch, with controls that dictate the rise and fall times of the shift, to simulate a foot sweeping the effect. Players can use this momentary setting to replicate the use of a whammy bar, instantly switch to a bass guitar setting or to explore the outer limits of what a guitar can sound like. The momentary option can be changed to latching for players who have relied upon the Whammy's crystalline pitch shifting technology to play in different pitches. This is a boon for players who also use loopers, as it allows them to create intricate harmonies on the fly. Plus, holding the footswitch gives you acces to two Whammy mode: Classic and Chord for original computer glitch or smooth polyphonic tracking. A LED ladder occupies the left side of the Ricochet, for exact measurement of where your tone sits in the pitch shift, allowing visual players to make precision adjustments mid-shift. Best of all, since the Ricochet contains the same pitch-shifting algorithm as its bigger brother, the transition to the smaller box is seamless. Watch
