JLDavid's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Electro-Harmonix Stereo Pulsar
Analog, no editing or preset.

UTILIZATION

The manual is clear, but it must be read because you can not guess all (as that tremolo peaked with the "depth" two hours and then become modulated).

SOUND QUALITY

Very efficient, very realistic.

OVERALL OPINION

At the tap tempo, Pulsar is a bit of retrograde. And as the Rate knob has a monstrously wide range, each half-mm brings a different tempo. Finally - as always with EHX - switches are hard and make a lot of noise.
But what a sound! organic, addictive, hypnotic, it's the grain, not digital sanitized. In addition, work on the curve of the tremolo via the Shape knob brings a wide variety of pulsation. Exciting.
(The stereo effect, personally, it does not please me - ditto for phaser, panners and Co. I find it artificial in general, matter of taste.)
I recently bought - and quickly returned - two high-end worth 4 times its price: the Super Zvex Seek Trem (see review) and the Empress Tremolo2, both full of possibilities, but not as addictive as the Pulsar, which will remain So long in my collection.

Before_'s review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Very good"

Electro-Harmonix Stereo Pulsar
Tremolo analog apparently.
Stereo output radical effect.

UTILIZATION

The knobs are hyper sensitive, move a mm you have not made the same!
Sy must try several times and requires a bit of courage to tame the effect.
The settings are sensitive.

SOUND QUALITY

For so cheap in secondhand, go for it.
I wanted a tremolo for a while, had squinted at the boss coughed ...
Well, you can get a very light and effective tremolo, or else spend your chopper to his playing with the knobs is ra-di-cal!
Try the stereo output, you'll catch the seasickness, sincerely! This means its effectiveness. Sure, it may sound slightly attenuated, but this is a detail.

OVERALL OPINION

If you are penniless, investment worth. it does not leave the pedalboard, known to be discreet or otherwise ubiquitous (as god) and is very well work.

Jérémy Guézennec's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Pulsar pretty cool"

Electro-Harmonix Stereo Pulsar
As was his habit, EHX goes easier and offers great tremolo effective. 3 knobs, switch, foot control and that's it. Pulsar is fully analog and I never had to complain about this brand or even repair any pedal, and I've really put in shots. Little more that I have not yet had the opportunity to exploit: the stereo output.

UTILIZATION

Everything is easy to access, but it should probably several tests to enjoy good settings. Once found, this is just fun. No need for this manual Pulsar, honestly. I noticed that the reviews spoke of knobs too soft, I do not think so. For the EHX is even more firmly in place! We know that it is not making the most crazy with the best finishes, but it holds up and the Pulsar is handy. After that, it is sure that if you start to move the knobs to live it up in full must leave a little in every sense ...

SOUND QUALITY

The effect is quite realistic, at least it has the merit of not distorting the sound. The true bypass seems to work even if it will never be really. It's really nice to play the garage (or psyche) and give it another way, a more vivid color. On a Jazz, it really works very well. The sound is round and warm, what I do not really expect but it is not bad! It may lack some potato, coupling with a boost at times.

OVERALL OPINION

It would be quibbling to say that does not break is with a Pulsar. I redeem my eyes closed, and frankly 45 € is still not very expensive. The EHX brand esuie quite critical level assembly, finishing, quality but I've never had much to complain about their products, unlike BOSS example ... the price / quality ratio is unbeatable, and it remains intuitive ( what should be the case for more pedals). The only negatives are the lack of power (sometimes) and the shape knob that is used relatively little because it seems to have little personality. But frankly, these details are forgotten 5 minutes.

surfy's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Not bad at all this little tremolo"

Electro-Harmonix Stereo Pulsar
Tremolo analog mono / stereo
true bypass
EHX model size (slightly larger than a boss), power supply type 9V boss
3 buttons: the intensity (height variation), speed, and the waveform, plus a small switch to change modes triangle (trmolo progressive) to square mode (tremolo "binary")
For me it lacks a stereo input to avoid "breaking" of the stereo effects loop
Ultra solid stainless steel case, made in United States

UTILIZATION

Super simple, no need manual.
Knobs are very sensitive (almost too), beautiful range of effects.

SOUND QUALITY

Apart from my boss who is a delay, I have nothing but EHX: reverb (cathedral), chorus / flanger (Electric Mistress).

The sound is just what one would expect from a good tremolo, which is not a very complicated effect: clear, do not vary the overall volume of activation.
So no surprises, it does what you ask, the simple vibrato cut ultra light with the hash.

I have not tried it in stereo.

OVERALL OPINION

Used for several days, I love it because it does exactly what I want. EHX effects, analog or digital are of excellent craftsmanship.
A tremolo is a simple fact, he just has to comply with the sound, so I do not see why I would put 130 or 150 € in this type of pedal.
The price / quality ratio is excellent.

hangy's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" be mo ... ... lo ...."

Electro-Harmonix Stereo Pulsar
an analog tremolo effect between two outputs, mono or stereo

UTILIZATION

it takes a little time to find its settings, as the range covered is great, but once found it's great, I use it a lot in stereo and attention because if we go back to mono settings are not the same for keep the same sound, so 2 settings found
over the knobs are very sensitive follower of zero / background will have a finger chopper, as a few millimeters changes everything!
Only drawback, the settings are still different depending on whether battery powered or transformer (voltage influences much I feel, indeed the transformer 9v just so rare, so the batteries) but nothing really annoying

SOUND QUALITY

no coloration of sound, transparent effect, true bypass: a good more

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 4 years, I am very satisfied, especially in stereo, so I do it again this purchase without problem

Messbel's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Superb tremolo, Link Wray to Pluto ..."

Electro-Harmonix Stereo Pulsar
Analog, Passed by true.

UTILIZATION

3 buttons and a switch, you should be fine ...

SOUND QUALITY

Obviously this one is waiting, the tremolo is beautiful, very hot, quality and setting possibilities are bluffing. Vintage or modern, at times limited vibrato, ring modulator in the extremes, coupled with other effects (chorus, delay) it can go far in space. No noise reduction noticed a slight boost even more (high volume amp), very quiet pedal does not click in the background as another.

OVERALL OPINION

A 69 euro store is unbeatable value for money, the other offering a tremolo sound quality are at least equivalent to more and even more than 100 euro.
Honestly I think it's a foot flagship of the brand that has many, this is a real success.

We must spend time, but what a pleasure to find three or four typical settings to know by heart for quick then it's pro stuff, nothing to say.

I found the tremolo!

funkygroovyrhodes's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Electro-Harmonix Stereo Pulsar
Tremolo-like effect and Stro (a trs really works well in Stereo, the sound image takes on another dimension)
The good old analog
No PC edition in good sr
Between a jack
Two out jack (mono or Stereo)

UTILIZATION

Config trs simple to use: three knobs and a switch to the waveform (sine or square)
The ets easy shipping. You just know that the first 2 / 3 of the knobs are rgler Depth and Rate of Manir classic effect. The last third is going on trip in the effects that will make Medeski squealing sound and soar ... So this is to have a tremolo INTERESTED stro normal but also the possibility of crushing the sound (provided you love a)
The manual top, it explains better than I rglages all possible.

SOUND QUALITY

The sound is perfect: it is the EH and stro more. Warm, round. I plug it on a piano internship RD300SX and it sound so amliore: warmer, rounder and more like a Rhodes.
I have problem pa blast or loss of earnings.

OVERALL OPINION

I advise to use with Rhodes or internship EP
