    Based on what I've seen online, it seems that both of these pedals do the vintage, hard chop type tremolo.
    I'm guessing both are driven by digital circuits.

    Anybody recommend one over the other? If so, why?


    FWIW, the Led Zep "Down by the Seaside" bit at NAMM with the Valcoder got my blood flowing!

    The Valcoder is 100% analog, all discrete components.

    EQD Hummingbird is also all analog. It is based on the Vix Repeat Percussion.

    Wow. Both analog. Nice.

    Ok. Same questions. Which one? And why?

    EQD has expression control over rate, if that matters.
