DANISH T-REX TREMSTER TREMELO
Natural, organic tremolo effect
The Tremster´s strength lies in the way the effect is modulated. In simple terms, it means that the waveform used to turn the volume up and down (creating the tremolo effect) is a bit special. Instead of a sinus wave or a triangular wave, the Tremster´s waveform is quite soft around the peaks, but otherwise relatively abrupt. This creates a very non-obtrusive effect, that melts in with your playing – even at maximum depth. It´s like it just breathes in a calm way, instead of sounding like your playing is hyperventilating, so you can use MORE tremolo without losing anything, much like tube tremolos on older amps.
Add to that a pulsating led for visual indication of the speed, true bypass and a mode switch for less/more throb and you have a really nice and simple box that does what it should do, does it in a very musical way and with no hassle. It´s three knobs, all analog stuff, but the sound is what you pay for.
Truthfully, we are bringing back the Tremster due to years of comments on its sound “Hey, can I still get the old red one from you? I miss it ”. Well, yes you can.
DANISH AND hand-built
This pedal is a reissue of one of the very first stompbox series made by T-Rex.
They were handmade in Vejle, Denmark using local suppliers and “local” employees such as family members and friends of T-Rex founders Lars and Sebastian. Yes, the old, sought-after Mudhoneys, Albertas and Tremsters were made in a smokey, low-key environment filled with passion and late-night soldering. We´re talking small scale, big expectations, here.
The reissue pedals use the same leaded components and parts as the old ones, but are wave soldered for higher precision and quality. The bypass circuit has been changed to a true bypass design, but other than that, it´s just like the old days. We even stuck in some resistor values that were “slightly off the mark” but contributed to the sound in a very positive way.
We are very proud to give re-birth to these three classics in “the right way” by doing the work ourselves in Vejle, Denmark. We hope they will keep the legacy of our red, blue and yellow “babies” alive while giving players a second chance for owning one of them.
Please welcome back the Tremster, Alberta and Mudhoney!
