An array of pitch options
The Whammy Ricochet allows you to bounce your sound up or down in pitch controlled through controlled or sporadic shifts. Offering 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. Featuring a latching footswitch mode which allows the tone to rise or fall to the selected pitch and stay there. An LED ladder displays the shift trajectory at all times. All of these features and controls combine to create a classic Whammy pitch shifting experience in a way you’ve never heard before.

Intuitive controls
The unit’s responsive trajectory LED ladder lights in sequential order to provide a visual indication of the pitch shift direction and rate. For example, the LEDs will light from top to bottom when the incoming note is shifted down – or, on the other hand, will light from the bottom to the top when the incoming note is shifted up. The trajectory LEDs will also chase in the direction of the pitch shift so that you always know what direction is currently selected.

In order to use the Whammy Ricochet pedal, select the desired pitch shifting interval with the pitch control then select the pitch direction with the range switch. Set the footswitch for momentary or latched operation using the momentary switch. To audition the rise and fall rate of the pitch shifting effect, turn the effect on/off using the footswitch; adjust the shift and return controls so that the pitch effect bends to and from the selected interval at the desired rate.

An all-new whammy experience
From subtle, country-ish bends, quick nuanced octave jumps, to steep lumbering polyphonic dive-bombs, the Ricochet can do it all. The beauty of it all – of course – your guitar will stay in tune the whole time. No breaking of strings, no tuning between every song, and no need to have a heavy tremolo bridge with any cumbersome string lock system on your guitar. You can get all of the most distinctive whammy sounds imaginable and more, completely hassle free.

The Whammy Ricochet provides two modes of operation: the Classic Whammy algorithm and chords. The modern algorithm from the Whammy DT. Engage the classic mode for an ideal single note soloing sound, while the chords mode is best suited for pitch shifting full chords – and this mode can be change while the effect is on or off.
