Welcome back to ProGuitarShop and ToneReport.com. 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.
