RICOCHET

Online

The Whammy Ricochet lets you bounce your playing up or down in pitch in controlled or crazy shifts. A momentary switch and customizable 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 footswitch 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 footswitch 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.

Closest StoreWaterloo, Ontario
I picked this pedal up after hearing good things about it, and I am very much in love with it so far! It is very versatile, and allows you to choose between the glitchy sound of the classic whammy, or a more streamlined chord mode with amazing polyphonic tracking minus the glitch. The momentary switch works great for getting those whammy sounds without it taking up so much space. It's also true bypass. Because it's true bypass, very compact, and can do everything a regular whammy can do, it's definitely a win-win situation for guitarists who are into pitch-shifting, or are just straight up gear-heads like myself
