Earthquaker Hummingbird is a Vox Repeater based circuit. Totally nails the choppy, Spacemen 3 sound which is why I got it. It kinda just does that sound though so it’s not super versatile, but you can dial down the depth and make less choppy. So it is more versatile than an original.Hi guys.
Need some opinions.
Trying to find a tremolo pedal that can give me some specific sounds. Cheap would be preferable.
I'm looking for:
Vox Repeater type sounds
This Prunes single seems like the tremolo has some pan type of effect
Ahh yes! That's the one.No. It's a sawtooth waveform.
This exactly. You can turn down the depth so it’s almost imperceptible but there’s still a thump or peak when the sawtooth quickly hits max. If I hit it with a loud or heavy fuzz (or both!) it almost overwhelms the effect and as the signal dies down, the chop comes back. It’s straight up the Spacemen 3 sound.Ahh yes! That's the one.
That's the key, any trem that does a sawtooth envelope and 100% depth will be good. Which should open up the possibilities for the OP.
The other guitarist in my band has a Hummingbird and there's a low end thump almost like a kickdrum under some settings he uses - not sure what that's all about but it sounds unique!
