  • Anyone use a Hiwatt Tube Tremolo?




    If so, why and what other trems have you compared it to?

    And does the wave control symmetry, or the actual wave shape from sine to square (ala Boss TR2) or similar? My sound isn't working so I can't listen to any clips.

          I'm too lazy to get a new soundcard. What does the wave knob do?

              Urgh. Was expecting something a little different from a tube trem. Probably not worth upgrading over my Analogman TR-2 then.

                Still doesn't make me want to pick it over the Goatkeeper.

                  For that amount of money you could justify getting an Empress Tremolo.

                  I have one and I can't see the need for another trem. Although I do love my Analog Man TR2.

                    Nah, I'm looking for a Vox AC15/30 trem in a box sound. (Bias something or other, not tube trem maybe? Probably?) Definitley not interested in the gapekeeper.

                      I have one and for what it's worth, the effect is too upfront. It would greatly benefit from a wet/dry mix knob.

                    Isn't that basically what the depth knob does?

                    Because it's modulating the volume, I'd assume the effect of depth and mix controls would be the same.

                      Maybe it's a question a vocabulary. I'd like to retain and mix the fundamental with the effect. The depth on this pedal only affects the height of the wave whereas the wave knob affects the slope.

                       

                      Anyway, I'm already decided. I'm dropping the pedal this weekend to my technician so he can make the mod. If that doesn't satisfy me, then it will be a Strymon Flint...
