The DigiTech XP100 Whammy Wah is a unique guitar effects pedal, combining two effects that require an expression foot pedal. I don't believe that there are any other combination whammy/wah pedals out there, or at least none that I have seen. The XP100 isn't a new pedal as it's been out for some years now - at least since the late 90's. The pedal has 1/4" connections for input, and both effect and dry output. You can power the pedal with a 9 volt power supply. It's not a rackable effect.


Using the DigiTech XP100 Whammy Wah shouldn't be hard for most users. It's got three basic foot controls - one to cycle up and down between the different effects, one to bypass the effects, which will also give you the built in tuner if you hold it down, and the foot expression pedal. You can set your own presets in addition to the different preset effects for using the pedal as a volume pedal, wah, auto wah, whammy, and for harmony effects. The manual is very complete and should be able to answer any and all questions you might have about the pedal.


The sound quality of the effects on the DigiTech XP100 Whammy Wah is pretty good, but each individual effect isn't as good sounding as they would be in their own effect. Still, it's really awesome to have all of these effects in one place as you can use the pedal as volume, wah, auto wah, whammy, or harmony pedal, which obviously makes it very versatile. It's also cool that you can save your own sounds.


The DigiTech XP100 Whammy Wah is definitely worth looking into if you're after a whammy pedal. While it's not as in depth as the regular DigiTech Whammy pedals will be, it still can do a lot and if you're just looking for the basic effect you'll get that plus some. The XP100 has a cheap price when found used since the pedal is about 15 years old and modern digital technology has surpassed the sound of this in the newer models. If you're going to use whammy sounds all the time, I'd probably recommend going with the DigiTech W-4, but if you want a smorgasbord of effects with a foot controller, the XP100 is a fine choice.
