Is there EXP control over speed?
(I think not)?
Is it really $430? That's a pricey trem. *edit * I just realized it's also has an independent brownface OD. Nice!!!
It does sound great, but that company prices just a bit out of my league..
I used to have a Bard and stupidly sold it. From what I've heard on the Kingsley thread, Simon Jarrett (just realized both builders are named Simon hah!) is open to tweaking some of his pedals to suit your needs...for an up-charge of course. I'd be totally stoked to see if he could add an FET in front of the Bard or add a tap tempo input like the RevivalTrem. Could be worth asking about. Tube warmth in my opinion is still king...and the pedal is technically more affordable at $300.
I want to not like the Revival Trem but it looks like everything I want in a tremolo. It has the dynamic interaction that made the Spaceman Voyager special, but obviously in an old school way. I LOVE the drives out of this thing. I would love to play my Rhodes through it! I guess I have to put some pedals up for sale....
Yeah that's crazy. If this was stereo it would *kill*.
Still cool. But feels like a missed opportunity.
They are priced a bit out of my reach too without some saving up, but they are built very robustly. Also, if you look you can get one on a 15% off sale on Reverb.com after they have been out a while. Can also pick them up used after they have been out a while. So if you are patient, you can pick them up for more in your price range.
What I found interesting with the Revival drive (both big and compact) is that for the price, would rather wait the 10 months for a pedal with a tube like a Kingsley or Effectrode. Kind of feeling the same thing on this great sounding (from the videos) tremelo. Tremelo is also not an effect I use that much, whereas my buddy runs a light tremelo pretty much all the time.
I had a Spaceman Voyager I and loved the sound of it, but I ended up selling it because it lacked tap tempo.
Good lord, that's nice
If it was just a bias trem I wouldn't care, but the fact they actually took the time to dial it into a full amp circuit means it's worth trying out. Additionally, having a very nice sounding brownface Deluxe OD with a foot switchable tremolo is kind of a bonus. I'm thinking a board with this, my MKii preamp from CBA, and the eventually CBA/Meris reverb will make one HELL OF A PEDALBOARD! Can't wait.
Premier Guitar stopped by as well
And some more sound demos including a violinist
And a demo by Ross Campbell guitarist
Like in you like? But $$.
honestly, the videos sound great but to me it feels like a missed opportunity with no harmonic Trem and no stereo - especially for $430
Maybe an updated version with stereo and I would be all in
I'm wondering how a RevivalTREM would work as an always on edge of breakup tone into a clean amp and being boosted by the RevivalDRIVE for more distorted tones.
Disagree. They are highly successful because they have a vision, define the goal and execute with precision and very high quality. The intent was to build a specific trem based on a specific amp.
Not saying a stereo harmonic trem pedal isn’t a great idea. But that isn’t what they wanted to build.
Who currently makes one that you like?
That is *exactly* what I am hoping for -- I want a Trem anyway, and if I could replace my OD-3 with this pedal into my RDC, that'd be perfect!
