Dwarfcraft Devices are a very well-respected boutique pedal builder. They have made some great-sounding and very well made, hand-built pedals over the years including The Great Destroyer and The Pitchgrinder, to name just two.
The company have just announced this, their first-ever tremolo. Rather than do what everyone else does and put one into a box, they went and squeezed two in there instead. Basically, they have used some of their synth module technology and put it into a guitar pedal. You can use it on guitars, bass or synths, so it’s pretty versatile.
This looks great for those that like to tweak, with some really nice features like the ability to lock the internal LFO (Low Frequency Oscillator) to external CV (Control Voltage) outputs which means you can use it to trigger devices or even itself. It uses +/- 12v CV outputs – which plays really well with Eurorack synthesisers and really makes it a unique pedal in my opinion.
Of course, you could just use an external expression pedal to tweak the unit itself for foot-controllable rates. The four small jacks are used to attach to CV devices and there are two regular jacks for the Audio In and Out as well, plus a 9-Volt power input socket for attaching to your power supply. The two sides of the tremolo run at different speeds with control knobs for rate, shape and depth. With tremolo two being slower than tremolo one. Each tremolo has switchable Square / Triangle waves for different characters.
If you like tweak-ability then you will probably enjoy this pedal. If you aren’t sure what LFO and CV are and aren’t a synth person, then I would urge you to watch their demo video as it shows you some of the possibilities of this little red box.
