Lord of all tremolos ! A big classic ! Very warm, it has this vintage feel to it. I modded mine recently in order to get rid of the volume drop issue. I've also did the Rate Led Mod in order to get the LED blink. After these mods, i named mine : the TremoLord !
Does What it Says on the Tin
There's really not much to say about this. It's got Rate, Wave, Depth. That's it. Rate controls speed, Depth controls volume, and the wave is what kind of a soundwave the tremolo effect will take.
The cool thing about this pedal, and what I use it for, is I'll crank the Depth all the way up, set a fairly fast rate, turn on my Phaser, set the wave to a pretty sharp cut, and then play in time with it like a metronome, and I get a pretty neat staccato effect.

May be somewhat basic now, but that's only because it set the gold standard for tremolo
No, it doesn't have tap tempo, volume controls, or the most modern and cutting-edge features. What it does have is an incredible tremolo sound with simple but versatile controls, which more than likely act as a frame of reference for more contemporary units. It can give you a wonderful.choppy, squared tremolo and an equally great, dreamy triangle sound. More often than not, this is the only modulator pedal on my live board.
Simple, yet effective
I purchased this almost a year ago and I have to say this thing sounds great. I mainly use the depth all the way up for a nice stuttering effect. My only concern with this pedal in particular is that when you engage the pedal there is a noticeable volume drop. Not very helpful considering it's the last thing in my chain. However, that can be easily fixed by prying out the C4 capacitor. Now I have no issues with the volume drop.
I haven't had it for long, hence only four star though I so far think it's a five star pedal. I've played it with a Fender Coronado and Jazzmaster and I enjoy the waves it makes followed by a sparkling sound (the sparkling sound is with a reverb pedal in front of it). I mainly play dream pop, noise- and folk rock, and I find it well fitting for dreamy sounds and 50's/60's inspired rock.
