Tremulant Lee

This is a new version of Tremulant overdrive tremolo pedal.
Lee Ranaldo (Sonic Youth) got his first Tremulant pedal years ago. Nowadays musicians are facing transportation problems mostly because of the airplane companies limitations. After having a chat with Lee Ranaldo about the Tremulant that he already uses we decided to make a new version which is smaller in size and also lighter. The sound tonality stays the same, the only noticeable difference is that there is no L
ED for the Rate anymore. This for some users was very distracting, therefore i decided to remove it.

It has a heavy-duty true-bypass footswitch and four controls that manipulate the rate,
the depth, the drive and and the level of the signal.

It is designed for sine wave tremolo effect tones with symmetrical modulation and frequency range(rate) from 1Hz to 13Hz.
With the Depth knob you can adjust the modulation level from 0% to 100% if you want more "choppy" effect.

The drive stage is after the modulation circuit and it's adjustable. The more gain you give the more the peaks of the modulated signal gets distorted. Watch the video here with the full review that Premier Guitar Magazine has done for better understanding.

Premier Guitar Magazine: "The Kleissonic excels at lending bold, stark emphasis to chugging quarter- and eighth-note rhythm parts and languid, soul-ballad arpeggios.

At super-high pulse rates, it generates throbbing stroboscopic freakouts."
