OVERVIEW

Deep, buttery, and seductive.

Designed to create vintage tube-amp tremolo, the Tremster uses a light-dependent resistor (LDR) to achieve its deep, buttery, and seductive sound. A flashing LED displays the current speed and permits a wide range from very slow to seizure-inducing head spinning. With the Mode knob in the normal position, the Tremster has an aggressive, sine-wave type effect. Depress the mode button and the effect is less aggressive with a square-wave quality. The volume knob delivers 3dB boost in maximum position. 9V operation. The Tremster includes a 2-year unconditional warranty.

FEATURES
  • Vintage tube-amp tremolo
  • 9V battery operation
  • 2-year unconditional warranty

        BEWARE: ONLY WORKS W/ TREX POWER SUPPLY

              I bought this as a deal of the day. The ad says it works with any 9 Volt power supply. It doesn't. It doesn't even work with the power supply Musician's Friend sends you for free after you complain about the misleading ad.

                Comments about T-Rex Engineering Tremster Tremolo Pedal:

                I haven't had the pedal for long but I don't think my opinion of it will ever change for the worse. It works very simply and easily as described, and sounds good with my Egnater Rebel 30 combo. I'm not going to gig with it, so I can't speak to how it behaves on stage. I just have a few pedals to mess around and practice with. I think players will appreciate the "Mode" button. If you start off with the other 3 controls straight up in the 12 o'clock position and just engage and disengage the mode button, you will get the idea that you can really do a lot with this pedal, from a soft and subtle effect to something much more obvious. There are probably other pedals that will give you the same range of the trem or vibe effect, but to me, that button kind of sorts it out in a simple and intuitive way. I got this pedal when it was the Stupid Deal of the Day, which made it a comfortable price. The only criticism I have regarding it and the description on Musician's Friend is, it is listed as "handmade in Denmark", but on the bottom of mine it says "Made in Taiwan". And it doesn't say anything about it being handmade. It still sounds cool and I do like it, but let's get it together with the description

                Comments about T-Rex Engineering Tremster Tremolo Pedal:

                I did my homework and found that this pedal was exactly what I was looking for. No frills, just great tremolo / vibrato. So many pedals are incorporating multiple effects and it's difficult to find simple gear.

                It's built very tough and sounds good. Common 9V power requirement. Does what it's intended to do and nothing more.

                I got mine on sale for almost half price at a competitor but even at retail I'd buy it again.

                  I cant believe there are no customer reviews of this pedal- it's fantastic! I only wish everything else I've purchased over the last 20 years sounded so great! It's one of those magical pieces of gear that just sounds awesome no matter what! Good job Trex!
