Trust me , I didn’t know what a digitech whammy was but after listening to it when the spouse bought it home , you have to wonder , why didn’t he get it earlier. Yes , the spouse and his friends love fooling around with their guitars and when he played with his new toy the digitech whammy , wow ! I was indeed impressed. I knew he played fairly decent but with the digitech whammy , it seems like he is a pro. Love it ! and if your spouse or children ask you to get them a digitech whammy , get it for them because it was definitely a great add-on for any music loving person. Good gift for Easter too.
