True bypass is one of the most important factors to consider when you have pedals lined up in your pedalboard. In this video I will be comparing two of the same versions of the Whammy pedal – Whammy pedal IV. One is a stock Whammy IV that does not have true bypass. the other pedal has a true bypass modification done by Molten Voltage. To compare the two pedals I went straight each pedal separately and then off to a Fractal Audio Systems Axe-Fx Ultra

As you compare the two different Whammy pedals you should hear the stock Whammy’s sound is more round, yet loses its edge and presence. As for the modded Whammy, it keeps the edge and the presence!

Thanks for watching the video and make sure you guys check out my website! Masaki Watanabe.
