What does a tremolo pedal do?

The first pedal effect in history was a tremolo. At first complex mechanical systems were used to achieve this characteristic cyclical volume oscillation. With the inclusion of this effect in some amplifier models, it spread worldwide

As we have said, with this effect we obtain a cyclical variation of the volume of a signal, a periodic modulation that adds different nuances to the sound of the guitar. The circuit of a tremolo pedal is usually composed of an oscillator (LFO - Low Frequency Oscillator), an audio stage and a system that collects both processes, in order to generate an oscillation in the signal that allows it to be modulated in volume.

The characteristics of the effect itself, as well as its quality, depend on the type of circuit. In this section you will find our selection of tremolo pedals, as always, from the best brands and at the best prices.
