Benmont Tench's Mystery Whammy Pedal


Recommended Posts

Watched this short pro-shot video of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers at NOLA Jazz Fest in 2012 last night:




Looking at Benmont's rig, I noticed something that looked like a Whammy pedal on the Wurlitzer:




I wondered what sort of secret sauce he was using that for. Fortunately, he's a hell of a nice guy, and very responsive on Twitter. At first he didn't know what I was talking about, but I sent along the screen shot and it jogged his memory.




So mystery solved, but no dive-bombs blended into the mix in Don't Come Around Here No More or anything. I'll have to come up with my own excuse to use my neglected Whammy on my rig. Open to suggestions!

It's cool that he's responsive on the twitterz, but too bad I don't feel like seeing his, uh, other posts (even though I agree with him).
