The Fulltone Supa-Trem brings back memories of old tube amps with vibrant tremolo sounds. This pedal is true bypass with a LED status and speed indicator. It also has two large knobs for Rate and Mix that you can easily move with your foot.
This pedal is perfect for bringing some twang filled country licks or can be used to bring a unique flutter at will with the mix knob. The hard/soft button changes the sound of the pedal entirely going from a smooth wavering type sound or to extreme stutter.
The build quality is impressive. This pedal is more than ready to take any abuse from the road that you can throw at it. The pedal even has two internal trimmers to offer more options. One trimmer adjusts the volume of the pedal, and the other adjusts the amount of current that is used when the “soft” option is engaged. This changes the feel from intense to smooth.
If you are looking for one of the best tremolo pedals available, look no further than the Fulltone Supa-Trem. The cost is $190 new and approximately $120 used, which is pretty reasonable for a durable, high quality pedal packed full of features.
