    It's a tremolo with speed (fast, low) intensity, mix

    UTILIZATION

    Very fast and imple

    Features / Use:
    my comments are valid for all models Cool Cat I detailed in the notice.

    Good build quality, report quality / price ratio.
    on the other hand, ergonomics is zero
    the knob at the back of the pedal must be 4 feet to see what we do.
    to adjust to and then not move.
    it's a shame because some Cool Cat are really versatile.

    UTILIZATION

    see above

    SOUND QUALITY

    this is the Cool Cat I liked least
    lot of noise, trying in a loop can be

    both effects (soft / hard) are successful
    Breath damage too

    OVERALL OPINION

    average but cheap

    A good tremolo

    Danelectro CT-1 TremoloPublished on 12/23/12 at 11:51
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Metal housing.
    Switch plastic, not very practical, but it does its job.
    True Bypass.
    3 knobs (placed above: not super convenient): depth (depth: depth of the effect), speed (speed effect), and hard / soft (2 positions: hard cut the signal completely, in this case only the speed knob is used to something soft and natural effect =)
    Analog effect.

    UTILIZATION

    Besides the buttons not very well located (not annoying to use, but if you want to adjust the tremolo, it is always better not mess too ... have to touch anything, because we have to do it blind otherwise.)

    SOUND QUALITY

    Frankly, no complaints.
    Perhaps a slight coloration once engaged.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Frankly, no complaints.
    Perhaps a slight coloration once engaged.
    It's done its job fairly wide palette of sounds, no noticeable loss of volume.
    I personally use it in front of my amp because I found it better (I'll have to redo a test).

    OVERALL OPINION

    For the price (price of memory: I may plant), not much to complain about. It is sturdy and sounds. The switch is not ideal (not always easy to engage, depending on the shoes you wear, especially when not wearing!), And the knobs are invisible in normal use, so better not have to touch it.

    I'm not really interested in investing in a more expensive pedal, unless specific need (tap tempo, etc.)..

    Basic Trem, Great Value

    Danelectro CT-1 TremoloPublished on 11/19/11 at 13:14
    The Danelectro Cool Cat Tremelo is a trem pedal with a great sound and easy to use features. Danelectro made this pedal with a metal housing, metal input and output jacks and true bypass. These are built a lot stronger than the old line of Dano pedals, not that I’ve ever had any reliability issues with those pedals either. The Cool Cat Trem runs off of 9 volt battery power or a power adapter. Dano gave these pedals a facelift and it really makes them blend in with an upscale pedalboard as opposed to the old line that looked like toys (but sounded great) Mono input and mono output on this pedal and a Depth knob, Rate knob, and a knob to go from “Hard” to “Soft” tremolo. It would have been…

The Cool Cat Trem runs off of 9 volt battery power or a power adapter. Dano gave these pedals a facelift and it really makes them blend in with an upscale pedalboard as opposed to the old line that looked like toys (but sounded great) Mono input and mono output on this pedal and a Depth knob, Rate knob, and a knob to go from “Hard” to “Soft” tremolo. It would have been nice to have a tap tempo feature or a LED that blinks to the rate of the tremolo, and maybe some other waveform settings, but for the price of the pedal those are ridiculous requests. I’ll stick with the pedal being basic and inexpensive, while sounding great.

    UTILIZATION

    The knobs are located on the end of the pedal, which make it kind of hard to change on the fly during a gig setting, but not impossible. All the other pedals in this Cool Cat line have the knobs in the same place which doesn’t bother me. I kind of wish the knobs were located on the top of this pedal so I could tweak them easier during shows, but it’s not a deal breaker by any means. Squeezing the input and output jack, power jack, and three knobs in one space makes it kind of awkwardly packaged, but I’m sure this was to save on production and I’d rather see this than a spike in the price or the quality of components used. The pedal functions well in front of an amp, but I use mine in the effects loop for a more pronounced sound.

    SOUND QUALITY

    The sounds coming out of this little pedal are great. You can get all the classic trem sounds between the hard and soft settings. Put it on “Soft” and you have that tube amp with built in tremolo type of wave going on, very smooth sounding. It’s great for clean sounds to add a little energy. With the pedal on “Hard” you get a very choppy, helicopter- type stuttering sound. It can be very dramatic if set for a heavy depth and medium rate with distortion. The pedal does not change your bypassed tone when disengaged because it is true bypassed and there is neither a large boost nor a loss of volume when turned on. Nothing is lost by having this in your signal chain and only a great sounding trem is gained.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Overall this is a super tremolo pedal at any cost, but at this price it is just unbelievable. If basic tremolo sounds are all you need this is the pedal to get. It is sturdy and reliable and sounds great with every amp and guitar I’ve used with it. The only reason I’d spring for a more expensive trem pedal would be if I found the need to use tap tempo or if I needed more waveform options. This is an inexpensive, great sounding, basic trem.

    I drop a quick review because I see that there are requests.
    I will discuss with the test.
    What are the effects, types of effects available? Tremolo only.
    Controls: depth, an inverter soft (with depth adjustment) or hard to cut the setting, and a pot of speed.

    The only snag would be if you seek another type of tremolo. it seems to be square (cut and lit)
    or less triangular (but not as sweet as I'd like to have a sinus too).


    UTILIZATION

    The settings are easy and all positions were sound useful.
    Although this series it is difficult to change the buttons in use.
    The manual is minimal and English but only with you one need?

    SOUND QUALITY

    So simple but very effective.
    Now attention as there are several types of especially the tremolo waveform used and if necessary it is better to look towards a digital world with its variants.
    If not for the rock style 50 "is just that.
    bypass material is "true bypass" and the sound is very respected in my bassman 59 (lots of bass that do not remove the pedal).

    I use a guitar but Skyer quality "telecaster thin line"
    orange crush 15W amp, bassman 59 st exit, and a sound card.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I just bought a set of coolcat. I'll have time to test them all.
    I have already tested other tremolo (boss) but the pedal is not neutral and clear the sound is my guitar.
    Maybe I'll add a line 6 to my collection.
    The price fall is just.
    I like its simplicity, the look and look, vintage comes with 9V battery is pretty to the point of not wanting to use it.
    Without hesitation, and at this price it can take UNLESS they needed a different type of tremolo.

    very simple, you connect and listen to the different settings to get an idea. The manual does not serve too.
    The depth and speed settings are fine with a beautiful and effective operating range. The two modes for almost everything.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Put in front of the amp after the distortion is silent, nothing to say. However, it is very (too) loud in the loop of my classic 30, the other effects do not snore, however in this loop. Curious but verified.
    Mode = sound rather soft sixties, Hank Marvin would have loved it, great for arpeggios, the illuminations of loops and worked well for blues. The speed range is wide, the depth very well. The overall sound is deep and gives space to the guitar. Very nice.
    The setting provides a hard swing more square, super Patrick Coutin to redo with a big fuzz, speed and depth to the max!

    Note, no drop in level when it is permanently active, perhaps a kind of compression at max + depth max, unless it's just a feeling.

    OVERALL OPINION

    value, fun, unbeatable price.
    You must be a purist to spend more and have less risk, or search for a specific sound and a more professional tool, but for home use is the top.
    I'm a fan of 60's and 70's, this pedal was made for me.

    Good warm, vintage

    Danelectro CT-1 TremoloPublished on 11/10/10 at 03:36
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Square wave tremolo effect, from the very good series of Danelectro Cool Cat. The construction is solid and true bypass. Only the default

    UTILIZATION

    knobs difficult access.

    SOUND QUALITY

    The effect is very nice. For my part I use it mostly in soft mode, with the "depth" and low "speed" above. So the effect is fairly light, colors the sound just right to give him a little grain vintage and warm, clear sound in a fun and crunches. I find that hard in the effect becomes too large so I do not use it that way too.
