Just imagine if T-Rex took all the gorgeous vintage tone and uncluttered functionality of the Tremster tremolo pedal… and then added the Tap Tempo function that has made the T-Rex Replica delay a certified platinum classic? It would give you all the swampy pulsation you love about the tremolo, plus let you change the tempo of your tremolo pulse dynamically, as you play.

Well, you don’t have to imagine it, because it’s here – in the new Tapster tremolo from T-Rex. Like a great organist adjusts the rotation speed of his Leslie speaker, you can now shift from a dizzying tremolo shimmer to a funky slow sweep – all while keeping in sync with the beat. Just tap your foot along.

Useful Subdivision switch

Tapster is a masterpiece of simplicity. Its only controls – apart from Tap Tempo – are Depth, Rate, Volume and Subdivision. The Subdivision switch lets you choose how your tremolo pulsates to the beat – in quarter notes, eight notes, or eight-note triplets. Like all T-Rex pedals, Tapster boasts an elegant, rugged design that’s built for a life on the road. It comes in cherry red.

Always incredible tone

The guitar-slinging engineers at T-Rex have pulled out all the stops in making sure Tapster delivers the warm, vintage-sounding tone you’ve come to expect from T-Rex pedals. It will bring out the best in your natural tone, reproducing and highlighting all its richness without ever adding artificial colour. Try a Tapster today, and you’ll see there is no going back to what a tremolo used to be.
