Whammy - Anybody else just suck at it?

So, every now and then I plug in my Whammy all ready to rock out, forgetting that I pretty much suck at any kind of treadle action.

Mostly I use it on a fixed harmony setting, (in truth mostly just 1 octave down). I just feel like the sweep is a bit wrong, it seems to spend too much time in the middle 'out of tune' part of the sweep, if that makes sense. It's not a calibration issue or anything like that, It's the same with the XP100, I think I just don't get it.

 

So, is it just me?

Nope, me too.

 

Easy enough to deal with on slower "sweeps" but on faster more rapid ones it gets that out of tune sound more than anything else. I like the Whammy, but not the action of the treadle. That said, it's better than the one on my Boss ME-50 by a mile. :LOL:
