Many classic tube amps from the 1950s and 1960s featured the incomparably lush and dreamy sound of bias tremolo, a unique effect found on few modern amps and not available in pedal form — until now! So, what’s so special about bias tremolo? First, the quality of the modulation — it’s remarkably smooth and brimming over with vibe. Second, unlike optical or VCA-based tremolos, bias tremolo responds to your playing dynamics, opening up as you dig into the strings so that your attack shines through before washing over the sustaining notes. And when playing delicately, bias tremolo has a pleasant and hypnotizing warble.
Origin Effects RevivalTREM transports this effect into a compact pedal and pairs it with a Brown-style overdrive that is equally full of old-school character. While it’s steeped in vintage tone, RevivalTREM comes equipped with modern features that expand its sonic potential, including tap tempo via external footswitch, switchable waveshapes, a multi-switch to double or triple the trem speed instantly, and a post-overdrive EQ that allows you to match the pedal to your amp’s voicing for the best possible sound. Origin Effects are specifically built for tone chasers, and they’re a favorite of guitarists at Sweetwater. So, if you’re looking for a tremolo with a distinctive character, then the Origin Effects RevivalTREM bias tremolo pedal is the one for you!Peeps these features!
