Overview

The Seymour Duncan Shape Shifter tremolo pedal features classic tremolo sounds yet allows control over every function for more wild tones, all in a true bypass and all-analog pedal. The first version comes in a gray enclosure with mono outputs, while the second version has a purple enclosure with stereo outputs. The Wave and Shape knobs provide access to customization of the waveform of the tremolo, with the Shape Shifter also featuring Depth and Speed knobs and a Tap Tempo footswitch. The Rate/Ratio knob changes the function of the Speed knob to either keep time with or multiply your tapped tempo, and the Channel Phase knob on the stereo version controls how out-of-phase the left and right channels are.

  • Yet to find anything better...

    Seymour Duncan is obviously not known for their pedals but this tremolo knocks it out of the park. It's extraordinarily easy to use and adjust while playing live. Everything from the subtle sine wave to the squarest helicopter chops all sound very musical. Best trem I've had and the stereo out is fu…

  • Great Pedal but the Volume Drop was a Dealbreaker!

    I loved everything about this pedal. I looked at all of the demos, read all the reviews, and it seemed perfect. I got mine used, and instantly fell in love with it. The Tap Tempo feature is especially super useful and very accurate. It felt like an EHX Pulsar, but with more options and more usable r…

  • Great epic, ambient tones

    It's just different from the other effects i'm used to but it sounds immense. Love the tap tempo and ratio knob. It's incredible!
