VFE Pedals Rise & Fall vintage tremolo - prototype

Sorry, this listing is no longer available.


When I setup the graphic on this final prototype, I made a mistake and switched the speed/depth labels with the starve/volume labels. I used a marker to relabel the prototype, which has the same circuit and tone as the rest of the batch of Rise & Fall pedals I built this summer.

I built a batch of Rise & Fall vintage tremolos as I worked this summer with a student on a new process of making hand-painted graphic. The surface of these pedals is a little rough, but they look & sound great.

I modded the original Rise & Fall by adding a voicing switch, from full range to bright. It works great with the starve knob to add natural grit or full blown starved-transistor distortion.

SPEED - sets the speed of the tremolo
DEPTH - sets the depth of the tremolo (use it as a boost/overdrive with depth at zero)
STARVE - affects the clean headroom, choppiness of the tremolo sweep, and add distortion as you turn it down
LEVEL - sets the volume of the pedal
FULL/BRIGHT - toggles between a full vintage tremolo tone and one where the peaks are brighter than the valleys. It can add sparkle & presence, or simply remove some low end mud introduced by the tremolo effect.

Works with 9-18V DC power supply (not included).
