  • Tremolo question

    Anyone know of a tremolo pedal that starts cycling when you pluck the string rather than always going through its cycle whether or not you are playing? This would make it much easier to sync with the tempo I believe.

    Maybe you should get a trem pedal with a tap tempo feature.

      i think he means with both tap tempo and starting on the attack. tap tempo on chorus/trem/flange etc is virtually useless unless you can somehow tap down to about 2 milliseconds accuracy. most people will be off tempo just a little bit and with each successive "tap cycle" the trem or phaser will get off just a bit more. over many measures this adds up.

      i as well would like to know if there is such a trem.

          You could go with the Trem Probe (is that the name of it?) from ZVEX and control it manually w/ yr foot.

            Yes, that is it exactly. The cycle starting on the attack is what I want. I think the Line 6 AxSys 212 amp that I used to have did that but I may be mistaken.

              That seems like it'd be tough to make

                Maybe I don't know but... I have been using the Holy Stain for a couple of weeks.. with exp peddle. I can control the rate of the tremolo with it. Would that help? I sure do dig it, yo.

                    you mean somewhat like this?

                    http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-739350898994820812

                    Sorry for the poor quality but I only have my digicam. Its actualy two tremolos against each other, one is the pod 2.0 while the other is built into the Line 6 Spider 2 15w amp. It seems the tremolo would harden up when the string attack got hard.

                    Ill stop now before this gets more porn sounding than intended.

                      Well this is close. http://www.tcelectronic.com/NovaModulator.asp It retriggers the LFO to start over when it is switched on. As long as you step on it on the beat it should sync right up.

                        this kinda sounds like how Don't Ask Why by MBV sounds (the idea).
