"Brian - Did you try a whammy pedal yet?" I did, but I found a used PS-5 for less than I could get a whammy pedal, and from the little experimentation I did, I think I like the PS-5 a little better for my purposes. On top of that, it is hard to beat the size of the PS-5, takes up much less floor space (something I seem to be running out of). I have a friend that has a whammy pedal, so I may do some further experimentation with it. Do you know if they have had different releases of the whammy? The one I used seemed to have some trouble with some of the "low" notes(when using 100% effect, down 1 octave).
