Tremolo – the modulation effect that started it all! Before the first tremolo units came built into vintage amplifiers, nobody knew what guitar effects are. A simple concept it may be, but the tremolo went on to define the iconic sound of surf guitar and spurred a wave of innovation among musical equipment builders. Our Synergy Core-powered Vari-Speed Tremolo presents a fresh and versatile take on vintage tremolos with its 5-position Wave Selector and the addition of a Vari-Speed Rate knob. By adjusting how quickly the frequency of the modulator wave varies, you can spirce up your tremolo effects with a welcome touch of unpredictability.
