The Best!

Fulltone Supa-TremPublished on 12/23/11 at 08:13
The Supa-Trem is a tremolo pedal available from Mike Fuller at Fulltone, and it lives up to the Fulltone name. Fulltone uses a three switch and two knob format for this pedal, which is different, but very easy to navigate. One knob “Rate” adjusts the rate of the pulsing (there is a LED that blinks to show you the rate the pedal is set at), and the other knob “Mix” adjusts the amount of dry signal it gets mixed with. A bypass switch turns the pedal on and off, a speed doubles or halfs the tempo of the tremolo depending on how you set it, and the hard/soft switch lets you go between shimmer to stutter.

One knob “Rate” adjusts the rate of the pulsing (there is a LED that blinks to show you the rate the pedal is set at), and the other knob “Mix” adjusts the amount of dry signal it gets mixed with. A bypass switch turns the pedal on and off, a speed doubles or halfs the tempo of the tremolo depending on how you set it, and the hard/soft switch lets you go between shimmer to stutter. True bypass switching , a large LED, and sturdy metal construction round out the features.

UTILIZATION

Many pedals have the same features as this pedal, but not very many of them have them available via footswitch. Most pedals use toggle switches to change between settings but using footswitches is great for live settings. Being able to double or half the rate of the tremolo is great for adding special effects to parts of songs. It is very easy to get a good sound out of this pedal, and with about any amp I’ve paired it with. I believe it’s harder to get a bad sound out of it honestly. The pedal is laid out very well and the knobs are sturdy and turn very smoothly. Fulltone manufactures their own custom potentiometers according to their website “because what has been offered as "Industry Standard" has a 20% failure rate within 2 years”. I’m not sure about that fact, but the ones they put out are very nice. The bypass switches are also heavy duty and designed by Mike Fuller.

SOUND QUALITY

This pedal sounds super. It uses a real vintage style photocell, so it gets those true “tubeamp-like” tones but there is no external clicking like certain other tremolos that use this technology. I love that all the tones can be adjusted on the fly using your feet, either on the switches or the oversized knobs that can be turned with your shoes. This thing really does get that classic CCR style amp tremolo that really warms up a rhythm tone, and at a flip of a switch it can get go crazy and get super stuttering effects for dramatic intros and the like. There is absolutely no loss in tone or added noise with this pedal, or any other Fulltone pedal I’ve played.

OVERALL OPINION

Overall this is the last tremolo pedal I will ever buy. Fulltone pedals are pricey, but worth it in my opinion. You’re getting a well made pedal that is going to last that has been designed and hand built by a musician. Putting a 5 year warranty on these pedals says a lot too. If I were just looking for a basic tremolo to use sparingly I would probably just stick with a Danelectro Cool Cat Tremolo because really, it is a good pedal and is true bypass. If you’re looking for a few more options and an upscale tremolo pedal, you would be hard pressed to find a better one than this.

Knobs are too slick

Fulltone Supa-TremPublished on 12/21/11 at 13:58
Bypass switch. Speed switch. Hard/soft switch. Rate knob. Volume knob. At face value this looks like a fairly boring pedal but innternally it's a real nice piece of work. True bypass too. From what I understand this is Fulltone's take on the old trem designed with some modern features.

UTILIZATION

First off, the true bypass works great. I haven't experienced any tone loss from this pedal and so I don't need to put it in my bypass looper. I would have to open it up to make sure but I'm almost positive this is an all analogue design except maybe the speed circuitry. My one big gripe with the supatrem is the fact that I constantly hit the knobs when I'm hitting the switches...…

I would have to open it up to make sure but I'm almost positive this is an all analogue design except maybe the speed circuitry. My one big gripe with the supatrem is the fact that I constantly hit the knobs when I'm hitting the switches with my foot. They are way too loose not to move on accident and it kills me to say it but this may well be the reason I get rid of mine. It's inescapably annoing. The LED can also be very bright and that too is an issue during shows.

SOUND QUALITY

I use mine on a massive pedalboard that usually goes into some kind of single channel amp. Usually a plexi or AC30 variant. Sound wise this pedal is great. The soft hard feature is good to have because you can go from those crazy choppy trem sounds to the more subtle stuff. I hardly ever use the speed switch though. It's not really something that's realistically useful in a live situation I guess. You are better off moving the rate knob.

OVERALL OPINION

I wish it had tap tempo for this price, but sadly it doesn't. Maybe I have weird feet but the knob turning issue is a real deal breaker for an otherwise awesome pedal. In terms of sound quality, this might be the best trem I've ever used apart from maybe a couple $400 ones I have.

The Fulltone Supatrem is a tremolo pedal that can be used with any electronic instrument.  The pedal is an analog one and has standard 1/4 inch connections.  This isn't a rack mountable piece of gear as it is a stomp box.

UTILIZATION

Using the Fulltone Supatrem is quite easy as it offers a very limited number of parameters to work with.  It has knobs for rate and mix and has buttons for speed and hard/soft.  It also has a button for bypass, and beyond this there isn't any more parameters so as you can see the make up if pretty simple.  Since it is so easy to use, a manual isn't necessary although I haven't seen it so I can't say for sure if it would be helpful or not.

SOUND QUALITY

The sound quality of the Fulltone Supatrem is hands down the best part about this pedal as it is very authentic sounding.  I have used the pedal strictly for recording in tandem with a Fender Stratocaster.  I only really use it if I am somewhere where I don't have access to a Fender amp that has vibrato, as to me that is the holy grail in terms of tremolo and it can't be beat with a pedal.  However, even if this is a bit different sounding than the vibrato sound on a Fender amp, it also has more parameters and therefore is capable of getting a wider variety of sounds, which is a huge reason to add a tremolo pedal to your set up.  The Fulltone Supatrem is up there with the cleanest sounding tremolo pedals that I have used.


OVERALL OPINION

Overall, the Fulltone Supatrem is great sounding pedal and is one that is made with top notch care and quality.  The pedal isn't the cheapest tremolo pedal out there, but you are getting a higher quality product with superior tone and make up when compared to most pedals that are cheaper than this one.  If you are a player looking to get a serious tremolo sound whether it is for guitars or keyboards, definitely check out the Fulltone Supatrem.

This is a tremolo using a photo cell, according Fulltone like pre amps.

The tremolo owns the outside:

3 switch:
- Bypass: to turn or etteindre effect
- Speed: to double or halve the speed of the tremolo
- Hard / soft: to move from a sine wave to a square wave (I'll explain in the 'use).

2 knobs:
- Rate: Adjust the speed of the tremolo
- Mix: to adjust the amount of signal "tremolo" in detriment of clear signal.

On the inside:
-Volume: increase the output volume of the pedal (it can be a "vintage" boost, hihihi)
-Waveform of the soft mode (allows "carrer" more or less the sine wave)

-Waveform of the soft mode (allows "carrer" more or less the sine wave)

UTILIZATION

Despite its many settings and configurations remains a pedal easy to use.

It is a very versatile tremolo because:

1) It will change the waveform very easily with the foot. Pressing the switch hard / soft you can spend a tremolo as in 'born on a bayou' Creedence something more trippy as 'how soon is now?' The Smiths.

2) It also doubles the speed without necesite initially set to decline, by pressing the switch Speed.

3) the size of the knobs (oversized) Rate and Mix can manipulate live with the foot (or toes).

Cons:

1) The adjustment of the volume to the inside of the pedal, so need a screwdriver if the volume is not appropriate.

2) The pedal takes a lot of space in the pedal.

SOUND QUALITY

The sound quality is excellent.

There is no loss of volume during the activation of the pedal (as happens on other tremolos).

The sound is warm and fortification.

I use a Gibson LP Std.

In (sine wave) soft mode I play mostly in clean.

In hard mode (square wave) I am using a carbon copy (just behind the chain of effects) to produce a more trippy sound.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 6 months.

I bought eyes closed because I am a big fan of John Fogerty and CCR, I read that used it for his last record, so I am asked me (I can be done to have it, lol). In any case I Creedence sound I wanted.

It is a very expensive pedal and take up much space in the pedal. I suggest you get one, if like me, you use it a lot for you songs (you play the coutry / blues, southern rock, surf, rockabilly). Its level, I think she has no competitor, but if you want a tremolo to use a very timely, it is more appropriate to move to a cheaper pedal.

I am very satisfied and I would choose without hesitation.
