EVH question

Anybody know what Ed is doing on Honeybabysweetiedoll? How is he shifting tunings? Effects? I can't figure out what he's got going on other than what sounds like a whammy pedal..

It sounds like a Digitech Whammy Pedal or similar effect.
Basically a pitch shifter controlled by you foot.

Re: EVH question

Jamie humphries does a great job demoing a lot of the features of the whammy pedal in this vid

I didn't realized it did all those things.

Btw, that magazine is free online and they ran a couple of months issues on EVH recently

Re: EVH question

I own a whammy, and while I can hear it in the song, he shifts tunings throughout the tune. I wonder if it's a TRANS trem. The whammy sounds like ass if you detune it and play.
