This is a vibrato/tremolo pedal that is entirely tube-driven. It can be powered through a 9V power supply or with a 9V battery. It has a 1/4" input and output. The pedal cannot be edited with a computer and is not connectable to a MIDI controller. It is not a rackable pedal.
The editing of effects with this pedal. There are five knobs to select and/or edit with, as well as the footswitch which activates the pedal's effects and the true bypass (one of the best things about this pedal is its completely true bypass, no excess noise comes from having it plugged in!) There are knobs for volume (overall volume with effect), intensity (rate of clean signal to effect signal), a switch to go from vibrato to tremolo effects, a knob which controls the rate of vibrato/tremolo, and a final switch that switches between four distinct vibrato settings. The names of those settings are looz, hamm (short for Hammond, it emulates a leslie speaker), Acey (a re-imagining of the AC30's vibrato channel), and Whirl (a tone reminiscent of a Wurlitzer electric piano). The tremolo effect, as well as each vibrato, is capable of a variety of sounds, due to the manipulations of the rate, intensity and volume knobs.
The sounds that come out of this pedal are fantastic. They are especially great for people who have a passion for classic, vintage vibrato and tremolo sounds. I really like the settings on the vibrato, they allow the user to really hone in on the most useful sounds. The sounds all remind me quite vividly of the instruments and speakers they are meant to emulate. I truly like the sound that I get with my Strat and Fender Twin. It almost feels like I'm using the AC30 when I try the acey channel. The same applies for the other settings as well. The tubes do color the sound slightly, which is a drag if you are looking for a pure effect. However, I tend to enjoy the coloring of the sound greatly, so I don't think it's a problem.
I like this pedal a lot because it has a lot of really cool, useful features and all of them sound great. This pedal is great for practical, classic tones. Those looking to get really wacky and far-out with this pedal should probably look elsewhere, this pedal serves more realistic functions than sheer noise-making and knob-twiddling. I don't think this pedal is too expensive, probably can get it new for less than $300. I would recommend that anybody check this out.
Note: This test relates to the sound reproduction with a bass not a guitar!!
it is a tremolo / vibrato lamps (2 12AX7) of EHX expensive.
one in, one out. Nothing complicated and superfluous connections. bullet boring: the pedals is 12V, so power supply spar. again, making the power supply is not standard. trs is something Bisara with 2 small qt steel coming in this house pedals. parative not it the fuck you want on a brick power supply ...
it is also big, but hey it's EHX
frankly the look is trs cool, very vintage lamps with emerging and are being protected by a grille acids to avoid the crass shot of rangers.
trs not complex. there are 3 knobs 2 switches and rotary.
Portard-speed (rate) damage that is really usable at 1 / 3 of its travel, EPRS share in a ring modulator sounds, fun to experiment, but this is not the use that I did.
Knob-depth the effect (intensity)
-Select switch 2 positions for tremolo or vibrato. I love a footswith to change more rapidly in concert, but hey you going to do with.
Swith-4 positions for "so-called" change the grain of the effect vibrato (tremolo on the diffrence is lower ... and especially useless). prcdemment as said, it's more on the EQ pedals that has played, but the rendering is nice and trs is used to vary the sound palette of the pedals.
the pedals are true bypass. it was cool: D
then the nikel it!!
no "Eating" low, rendering is homogne.
the effect normment color the sound, but it has to be lacht
fans of the ultra-clean, go your way, this trend be a lightweight pedals crunch when he balance a lot of gain in the face, but on the contrary gnial, gives a really a vintage characters, a dirty can. I love it!
for tremolo: ass classic is doing its job. it can be trslger, or otherwise labeled trs.
When the vibrato, the trs is really good! we can even approach a vibe.
gnrale the sound is warm and soft trs, typical vintage. made perfect in my stringray
APRS, Listen to the samples on the net to get an ide of sounds for you with the pedals
I use it for 6 months.
simply gnial! two effects in one, both doing their job and have a really warm apprciable trs. bought for 130 euros OCCAZ is trs well, but the price of nine is expensive I think.
I like: sound, vibrato, tremolo, the look.
I do not like: the power supply crap, size, the fact that you can not switch between two effects with footswith.
a good bass pedals that will delight fans of vintage sounds and effects, like me: D.

Co-Rockataire's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
PDAL of Trmolo / analog Vibrato lamps (two 12AX7 EHX)
6.35 2 jacks, one IN, one OUT. Five pots (volume, intensity rate, vibrato mode (x4), selector vibrato / tremolo).
Alim by AC adapter only (J'espre it will last).
The use is like all the pedals, there are pots, turn, block the sounds .. Hop on and play for 3 / 4 hours of not seeing pass the time
Ben frankly I'm really happy with the pedals ... I was looking for a long tremolo, long as I blocked the vidos EHX Peter Stroud and the house was ringing on my HotRod
To make Creedence Clearwater Revival we are in the thick of it (Born on the Bayou, I Heard It Through the Grapevine ...)
Also delighted by the vibrato mode (well the 4 modes) that colors sound good (it's hot), the modes can be a kind of slight phase (leslie), or vintage vibrato (well I love this p dale). A try for those who love the old sounds
Well the only criticism I can make the pedals is the impossibility to save sounds, so there are good (long live paper and pencil to take notes for his rglages) .
That said the only real complaint was the little lamp that they have done for the indoor to the pedals to give more intensity in the two 12AX7 Lumire (as on the ToneLab) STPs loupiote it is nothing ... if not a bit more heat in indoor the pedals ... As if I expected enlighten the pice by buying a tremolo ... M'enfin ...
Or nothing to say, it sounds nickel
EDIT 14/08/06: Good though it is a bit noisy ... gender refers to cyclesdu rate when you push a little too pramp ... hsitation to make it back for a Fulltone .. but the vibrato sounds really give a nickel and FCIP heat ...
