This is a pretty solid tremolo pedal. It's got a decent amount of controls and the great warmth of an analog pedal. This is tried-and-true analog pedal, so there are no computer or MIDI capabilities with it. The pedal isn't rackable either, as it's a floor pedal. The connections are the basic 1/4" input and output, and there is an adaptor for this pedal as well.


The editing of the tremolo effect on this pedal is pretty basic, and therefore, it's easy to do in a short time. This works out great for on-the-fly edits and changes. There are only four knobs. The first is for the speed of the tremolo effect. The second knob controls the rate of the effect. The third knob determines the volume of the tremolo, its basically the mix between the effect and the dry signal. The fourth knob switches between different settings, which are basically different variations of the tremolo effect. The switch between the middle two knobs also changes the effect drastically, adjusting the character of the effect in a way that is difficult to explain. The manual will explain things clearly to anyone who has trouble getting it to work, although I don't think it's hard to use at all.


I really liked the sound that I got out of this pedal, which I was hoping for. Not many tremolo effects really do it for me, I like the way they sound on record more, and that's mostly because of studio effects and not so much pedals. This pedal sort of betrays that stereotype. I think that what I like most is the tap feature on the second switch, that allows you to adjust while playing in a way that is totally liberating. In general, the best thing about this pedal is that it doesn't overwhelm the tone, and in fact only enhances it. It also doesn't make everything super muddy, either, which I like.


Overall, I'd have to say that this is one of the more enjoyable tremolo pedals I've had the pleasure of playing. For the most part, I don't use this effect that much, which makes me wonder whether or not I'm going to hang onto it, really. I think that I will for now mainly because it's the best tremolo pedal I own. I'd have to recommend it to anybody who needs a tremolo that doesn't frustrate and annoy them, and needs it mostly for live purposes. If you haven't gotten into the effect in a big way yet, this might be the pedal that changes your mind.
