A big pedals (boss's standards), very heavy and solid.
- 4 knobs that seem robust enough (Speed, Depth, Peak, Shape).
- A circuit slecteur (Opto - Bias - Pan).
- Between Stereo (2x mono) latrales right
- Stereo output (2x mono too) left latrales
- A power outlet type-9v (like all the pedals and pedals recommended because this sucks battery high speed!)
- Background antidrapant.
- PDAL sensitive foot pressure (for the Tap-Tempo or Enable / Disable the effect)


Once connected, you must choose what is done:
- Circuit (type = Opto vintage, modern or Bias = Pan = alternating left / right, Stereo) to the grain of the sound.
- And then Eternal speed (Speed), effect depth (Depth) and waveform (Shape of sinusodale rectangular)
Then, a plot thickens: namely with the knob Peak (sensitivity), the speed of the effect is governed by the attack on each note. Or you use the tap tempo, by tapping the rhythm on the pedals.
Everything is pretty simple, but requires, even when the user manual, just the very first time, for those not used to this kind of effects (including priori Tap -Tempo / on the Peak / RULES on speed manual)

SETTING THE Regrettably a Level (as full of Tremola)

A small LED will flash all the time:
in OFF (orange): it indicates the tempo of the effect, so we can speed rgler in silence and no surprises the Inrush.
ON (green): same (useful to see that the Tap-Tempo works for real)
When it turns red, change the battery!


To beginners, I had a small problem of breath. But in fact, my silent PSU a bit too powerful.
Then, with batteries: no problem BUT a stack rpt '...
So power supply requires it, not too strong (like a Boss or Ibanez line6 or Korg or with other pedals in parallle).

The grain is warm enough at all numrique. But the effect is not complete transparent: the sound is compressed engagement. To me, this is not serious trs, but we know so unlike what I had described prcdemment: no loss of sound level, on the contrary a few blows + sagrable depending on the other end, the power supply, guitar etc ... I saw two more rlgages: noise gate and level!
The rglages are all the same effective trs.
The range of possible speeds is great, we'll atmosphriques effects (with modulations that go) to the jackhammer sound of many aggressive.


I Nol since 2005 and APRS have struggled with the history of steam and industrial consumption of 9v batteries, I love the pedals (power supply "zero hum" of Danelectro).
I sometimes use the tremolo on my multi (Korg AX1G, basic), I tried a digitech, Boss. Well, frankly, my prfr a silent tremolo Mount SERIES on an old Fender amp ...
Sometimes I am bored to install the pedals (concerts in tiny bays shabby, and weight when consquent lugs around a lot of pedals ...)

- I: the rglages effective, robust, I / O stro, Tap Tempo and the Peak.
- I dislike: electric consumption, breath sometimes, the weight (but strong forces), the small LED that blinks all the time. can a Nerve (especially when it turns red!).

The report qualitprix seems to me correct (new 110 euros), especially compared to most other brands rputes. I would do this choice? Yes, and I think even I would take the carrment Line6 MM4 of (the big blue thing) ...
