Money can totally buy happiness
Anders Madsen, 17.08.2020
This is without question the most fun I've ever had with a pedal—just pure, unadulterated fun.

Ever since I first heard Tom Morello's solo on Killing In The Name back in the mid-'90es, I've wanted to have a Whammy. Since then I've seen numerous others, including MonoNeon and Thundercat, use it, so the desire to have one blushed back up now and again.

Now, some 25 years after first encountering the pedal I finally realized that it's perfectly alright to buy a pedal just because it's fun, so I did... Even if you're not necessarily producing anything useful with it, just fooling around doing wonky stuff is absolutely worth the price. Not to mention finally living out the dream of playing the solo from Killing In The Name correctly. My 14-year-old self would have been absolutely awestruck. Money can totally buy happiness.

Only minor annoyance is its pretty aggressive power consumption (1300 mA). It's not likely that your existing power supply on your pedal board will be able to power it. But apart from that, the build quality is top notch, the pedal feels very robust and it doesn't feel like they've skimped on anything building it.

You'll need to use your hands to change program on the program dial (unless you set up midi to control it), so unless you stick to one setting, then you'll be reaching down pretty often.

Other than that, it's smooth sailing. Obviously, since it's a modulation pedal, it has a few tracking issues now and then, but I figure that's impossible to avoid when modulating in real time.

It blows my mind
Nigel ST, 07.09.2020
I've always wanted one and finally I bit the bullet and bought one.

I couldn't really tried it yet, as it was sent with the wrong power supply set and I don't want to risk losing the warranty, as Thomann sent it with an adapter which the manufacturer didn't approve and it is clearly not suitable for safe use. I checked that the exact same pedal can be shipped with two different sets of heads and power supply depending on the market, I don't understand why Thomann took the risk to sell me a pedal with the 2 pin head, when the manufacturer has a proper set with the 3 pin head and Thomann knows that in the country where I reside the official sockets are the UK type ones (they added a cheap adapter to the shipment).

I will edit my review, once this is sorted out properly, until then my pedal is waiting in the box.

Great update.
12.03.2014
This pedal is great upgrade from Whammy 4. Finally the pedal is true bypass and when it's on, it doesn't suck your tone. There are also now two modes for single notes (classic) and other for chords. In chord mode the pitch shifted chords are relatively well in tune as where as on Whammy 4 you got weird wobbly effect. In single mode (classic) you have the Whammy 4 wobbles and single note tracking should be faster. The difference is quite small. Another improvement is that finally this pedal works with typical 9V adapter.

In addition to most used octave up and down pitch shift this pedal many interesting interval combination for you to try.

The option to control the pitch interval and amount by MIDI is really great in recording process as you can program the movement of the expression pedal in your DAW and send it to Whammy. It will save you from many takes as you need to only concentrate on your playing.

I think this is the best version yet, in future I would like to see even more thoughtout MIDI possibilites with thru and out options.

Excellent
corsair, 23.10.2020
After reading how much more improved this version is compared to IV, I decided to buy it. The sound is excellent. Tracking is very good and I love the auto-calibration feature (the factory calibration was off in my unit so it was absolutely necessary to get it to calibrate correctly). Definitely recommended if you are into this kind of effects
