Harman’s Whammy Ricochet

Harman’s Whammy Ricochet

Harman’s Whammy RicochetHarman’s Whammy Ricochet takes the popular whammy pitch shifting effect and places it in a small footprint pedal. Instead of using a foot treadle, it bends the pitch of the incoming note at a rate determined by shift and return controls. This allows guitarists to bounce their sound up or down in pitch in controlled or crazy shifts. Whammy Ricochet provides seven pitch selections—2nd, 4th, 5th, 7th, octave, double octave, and octave+ dry. A toggle selects up or down for the chosen pitch, while an LED ladder displays shift trajectory times. The pedal has two modes of operation: Classic Whammy algorithm for single note soloing and Chords for pitch shifting of full chords.
