OVERVIEW

Perfect tremolo sound.

Think an old Fender Blackface amp with a tremolo circuit like a Twin or Super Reverb. Now imagine that warm, pulsating effect of the sine-wave oscillator working its magic as perfected by Leo Fender. Pretty awesome, right? Reality check: your amp doesn't have a classic Leo tremolo circuit, or it just doesn't work well anymore. Fact is, a lot of those old tremolo circuits get pretty dodgy over time, often ending up delivering a jarring on/off square-wave effect or a weird popcorn-popping sound.

Enter Tremor. Created by Paul Gagon, former R&D Engineer at Fender and certified amp geek with soft spot for Leo-era classics, Tremor faithfully recreates the experience Leo's finest amp tremolo. Better yet, Tremor features dual foot-switchable speed controls. Just think: having two speeds locked and loaded means you can cover Crimson And Clover then follow that up with For What It's Worth. Okay, so maybe you've got a couple other songs in mind, but the cool thing is you can do it without reaching down to tweak a pedal or messing with your amp. You know, that old Twin with the tremolo that also makes popcorn. What's more, its bulletproof reliability means it can take the abuse of the road without breaking a sweat, unlike that vintage Blackface you've been babying all tour long.

BBE fans will note that Tremor's back with a new look that really nails the experience. Amp spotters will peg the flavor right away, with Tremor's white graphics on a matte black finish, complemented by cr¨me amp knobs. Tremor is just dripping with that transitional 1963 mojo, and once you plug into it, you'll find tremolo that would surely impress Leo himself.

BBE Tremor: Leo's Finest Tremolo, Now Available in a Pedal

FEATURES

  • Military-spec circuit board for reliability
  • Easy access battery compartment

If you don't have a tremolo curcuit on your amp, this is the one to add. Order today.

I was reluctant to buy this pedal because I use a Fender Deluxe Reverb amp which already has the tremolo effect (Fender calls it vibrato). But I sometimes use other amps without built-in tremolo, and I got a smoking deal on this BBE pedal on sale. It's not an effect that I use often, but it does add a cool sound to certain songs. My pedal is the new version, black with white lettering and creme knobs. BBE recently revamped their pedal line, doing away with the cartoon graphics, which I never really cared for anyway. But they also did away with the power adapter, including instead a 9 volt battery. Gone, too, are the printed numbers 1-10 for each knob. And the worst change is the rubber pad on the bottom of the unit. It has a powerfully sickening smell that hits you the moment you open the box, and hasn't gone away yet. It is the familiar "Chinese rubber" stench that is so common on products these days. Now, on to the pedal function. I tried it through my Fender Deluxe Reverb (with built-in tremolo), plugged into the same channel as the Fender tremolo. The BBE pedal duplicates the Fender tremolo sound so much that it is hard to believe it. Actually, the BBE sounds slightly brighter and more sparkly to my ear. The difference is slight, but I think that I prefer the pedal sound to the "real deal". I never thought that I would say that, because I have never been a big pedal advocate, and I love Fender tube amps! The BBE Tremor has two tremolo speeds, so you can set them up with one faster than the other and switch back and forth at will. An LED is displayed at all times, indicating which speed (speed 1 or 2) is selected. The LED remains on even when the true-bypass switch is off. Some might find this annoying when not in use on your pedal board. And although two speeds are nice to have, one would be enough for me (it would also eliminate the LED). I have found this pedal to be quiet, and it is quite rugged, as are all BBE pedals. It draws 200mA. I really like this pedal. If you are looking for the real Fender sound, this is it! Now if I can only get past the smell...

It uses so much of the signal from your guitar that when you do you have to turn the guitar way u, and then after switching it off be sure and turn back down right away or you'll blow everyone out!! Musician's friend was not too helpful in returning it, Their policy sucks and so I'm forced to sell it off on my own. If it was described as it works it would be different-Good by MF!

    Comments about BBE Tremor Analog Tremolo Guitar Effects Pedal:

    I have a Fender Twin Reverb already and a Boss Tremelo pedal, but thought I would give this pedal a try since it was a Stupid Deal. I figured since I wasn't truely happy with the Boss pedal, I would try the Tremor, comparing it to the Twin's built in tremelo. I mainly thought I could use the Tremor on my second and third rig, an Egnater Rebel 30 and Egnater Renegade combo.

    Out of the box, you can feel the pedal is well built, solid and heavy. It came with an included 9v battery, and like others have said, a very strong rubber smell...no big deal.

    The Tremor sounds better than the Twin's tremelo! The dual speed adjustment is a great feature and you have great control using the depth control. I have my tremor set to two speeds that are just a bit different, but the range of the speed can go from off to crazy fast.

    For the price I paid, this pedal is a fantastic deal! But after listening to it, I wish I would have found it before I purchased the Boss pedal.

    Highly recommended tremelo pedal!!!

      Comments about BBE Tremor Analog Tremolo Guitar Effects Pedal:

      nice pedal. 2 speeds make it pretty versatile. Its the same pedal as the old one with an updated enclosure. looks pretty nice. The sound is good...not great. Honestly, the danelectro cool cat trem sounds slightly better to my ears. maybe its the optical? the dual speed makes this one superior though. I learned to keep the intensity low and it helps it sound more natural. Its my back up trem so Ill keep it but it wont kick my shape shifter off my board

        Flat out great tremolo. I have always thought the trem on my 1966 Fender Princeton Reverb was the best I've ever heard. This pedal sounds exactly the same. The rate and depth knobs have way more range than a Fender amp so it can cover a lot of songs. I got rid of my Boss TR-2 and my Danelectro pedal (the name escapes me) after hearing this pedal.

            I use this pedal in our praise band at the church I go to, and it has proven to be one of THE best additions to my gear that I have purchased so far!

            I would ALSO like to add, if YOU aren't closely watching for the "Stupid Deals of the Day," you should, because they are outrageously crazy! I have purchased 3-4 effects pedals through this, and I will continue to do so! THANKS, Musician's Friend, for the great deals! -Archie

              Comments about BBE Tremor Analog Tremolo Guitar Effects Pedal:

              Every BBE stomp box I have is far better than average, and an excellent value. They often add secret sauce, and here it is the choice of two tremolo settings and a light that blinks at the tremolo's tempo (which mostly compensates for the lack of a tap tempo capability).

              This is probably my fifth BBE stomp box, I have gigged quite a bit with them, and none of them have ever faltered.

              A second Depth knob, a wave (sine>sawtooth) adjustment, and a tap-tempo setting would make this perfect. Still, I've tried 4-5 trem pedals and this is the one on my board now.

                First off: this works and sounds GREAT, just what I was looking for. Metal casing appears to be very robust, and the dual speed option is SO nice. In addition to everything else, what I really liked is the battery access is a GREAT Design, no screw drivers or and special talents needed, an easy open door on the underside, AND it even comes with a 9v battery (cheap/ not alkaline tho). I know many will probably never use the battery, but I LIKE being able to go somewhere and play without having to carry power adapters and associated 120 cords. I'll be looking for more effects pedals from this company

                  I HAVE USED FENDER TWIN REVERBS FOR OVER 2O YEARS, BUT WHEN I STARTED USING LINE 6 AMPS, I FOUND THAT THE EFFECTS WERE ALL GOOD, EXCEPT FOR THE TREMOLO. THERE WAS NO WAY TO CUT BACK THE INTENSITY ON STAGE AND THE LINE 6 TREMOLO WAS TOO CHOPPY, HARSH, AND NOT EASILY ADJUSTABLE ON STAGE...
                  SO I GOT THE BBE TREMOR, WHICH HAS 2 SPEED SETTINGS AND THIS REALLY DOES THE JOB FOR CLASSIC ROCK, OLDIES, SURF, AND COUNTRY...
                  SOUNDS JUST LIKE THE TREMOLO HAD ON MY FENDER TWIN REVERBS, BUT HAS 2 TREMOLO SPEED SETTINGS AT THE PUSH OF A BUTTON, AND THAT IS EVEN BETTER WHEN YOU ARE GIGGING ON STAGE AND DON'T NEED TO BE FOOLING AROUND WITH YOUR AMP DURING A PERFORMANCE.

                    Comments about BBE Tremor Analog Tremolo Guitar Effects Pedal:

                    Ever since I sold my Fender Twin Reverb amp I have missed that great tremolo they have. I've used several makes of amps including Fender Mustang amps, Carvin, Sunn, Randall, and more recently a Line 6 150 watt 2x12 Celestion... The Line 6 has great effects, ...except for the Tremolo...There is no knob to lessen the tremolo intensity, rendering it not very useful for Classic Rock.
                    So I bought the BBE Tremor specifically to get the Fender type Tremolo with an adjustable speed and Intensity... It works great and has 2 speed controls so you can set them up for fast or slow tremolo with a click of the switch... I used it at a gig last night and I had the proper tremolo for the Doors, "Rider's on the Storm" and the proper tremolo for some CCR "Midnight Special" ...The BBE Tremor give you that Delta Blues Tremolo Sound, and the sound you need for Classic Rock, Country, Blues, Oldies & Surf Tunes... Now I've got that fabulous Fender Tremolo Sound and I don't have to spend a grand for a new Fender Twin... Works great for me!
