That Pedal Show – Harmonic Tremolo, Joey Landreth & Associated Awesomeness

Published on Aug 11, 2017
Duration:
42:44:00

In this episode we take a fun journey through the subject of vintage harmonic tremolo. Along the way we take in a couple of cool new OD/fuzz pedals on Joey Landreth’s new board.
Hang on… did somebody say Joey Landreth? Oh yeah, he’s in this video too. If you don’t know who he is, head to iTunes/Spotify/wherever right now! Or www.joeylandreth.com

The harmonic tremolo effect featured in a handful of Fender amps from the early/mid sixties. It differs from ‘normal’ amplitude-varying tremolo in that different frequencies of signal are modulated in slightly different ways. It gives a slightly more modulated, almost swirling sound that you can hear put to incredible effect in this video.

To whit, we compare the in-built harmonic trem from a genuine 1960 Fender Super with a Walrus Audio Monument pedal version as an intro to the whole deal.
Also in this video is a lovely 1966 Fender Twin, but we swap that out fora Victory V40 Deluxe and get some crazy dual-tremolo action going (we couldn’t turn the Twin’s tremolo on properly – arrrghhh!).

MASSIVE thanks to Jack at Origin Effects for bringing the old amps along.
MASSIVE thanks to Joey Landreth for being Joey Landreth.
We also would like to send some MASSIVE thanks to Tom Waterman from Universal Audio, for help with our continuing experiments to sound better, here courtesy of an Apollo 8p interface running some Neve and SSL channel amplifier/strip plug ins. Mmmmmm.
