    I finally got mine!

    Please educate me about the trem effect.
    I love Nancy Sinatra's "Bang, Bang" and some CCR style, swampy ,bluesy tones.

    Please recommend some of your favorite "trem-laden tracks". I was used to just playing thru my Vox AC30's trem, and some Fender amp trem.

    I find this pedal is very tweakable. I'm not a total tremolo junkie, so I'm not that familiar with the effect. but for some reason, I got into it the past few months.



    Please share your opinion on the pedal and maybe we can also share some settings.

    LET'S GET DIZZY!! :D

    Check out The Clientele. Great band with gorgeous guitar sounds, lots of tremolo.

    Anyone can remind me more tracks with Tremolo on them?

    So far, all I remember:

    Crush Eyeliner- REM
    How Soon Is Now?- The Smiths
    Midnight Special/Born On The Bayou- CCR
    It's Summertime- The Flaming Lips
    Take Me With You- The Jayhawks

    Lots of old soul tunes. Pops Staples of the Staple Singers is very famous for his tremolo sound. Last year's "Raising Sand" album by Robert Plant/Alison Krauss - lots of tremolo. Lucinda Williams has a lot of tremolo on her albums.

    Regarding sharing settings. Tremolo after all isn't that much to "figure out". Just set it like you want it to sound. Triangle wave with subtle depth for shimmer. Full depth and square wave for... more radical effects. With the square wave set to mellow depth you could get something inbetween, I think. Not familiar with the Pulsar though.

    Cool thing: learn to play with the speed. Like having the tremolo set to triplets.

    fuzzface71, did you take peek inside? are they using the usual blue 3PDT or some kind of switch that's soldered to a small PCB?

    I was busy playing the pedal that I haven't done that yet. Well, they are supposed to be true-bypass. I'll check it and would report back.

    Can someone tell me what the stereo effect does on this pedal? I would assume that it makes the tremolo "ping pong" through the left and right...is that correct?

    You mean the album? Because the song "The Bends" I didn't notice any. Though, "Bones" & "Planet Telex" does. Thanks for mentioning the cd though.
