5 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes a one year warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Digitech Whammy Ricochet Guitar Effects Pedal

Details

The Whammy Ricochet takes the popular Whammy pitch shifting effect and places it in a pedal with a small form factor. Instead of using a foot treadle to manipulate pitch bending rate, such as those found on traditional DigiTech Whammy pedals, the Whammy Ricochet bends the pitch of the incoming note at a rate determined by shift and return controls.

The Whammy Ricochet allows guitarists to bounce their sound up or down in pitch in controlled or crazy shifts. The Whammy Ricochet offers 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 a latching footswitch mode so the tone can rise or fall to the selected pitch and stay there. An LED ladder shows the shift trajectory at all times. All these controls combine to create classic Whammy pitch shifting as well as new sounds never heard before.

From subtle country-ish bends, and quick nuanced octave jumps, to big lumbering polyphonic chordal dive-bombs, the Ricochet can do it all. And of course, the guitar stays in tune, there’s no breaking of strings, and you don’t need to have a heavy tremolo bridge and cumbersome string lock system on your guitar to get these distinctive Whammy sounds.

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

The unit’s responsive Trajectory LED Ladder lights in sequential order to provide a visual indication of pitch shift direction and rate. For example, the LEDs will light from top to bottom when the incoming note is shifted down. Conversely, the LEDs will light from bottom to 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. 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.
