LET THERE  BE WOBBLE!

"We are massive fans of the harmonic tremolo sound.

We were introduced to it by our great friend Joey Landreth a few years back via an early 1960s Fender Super amplifier, and have been searching for the ideal pedal version of the effect ever since.

Why Harmonic Tremolo?

We were introduced to it by our great friend Joey Landreth a few years back via an early 1960s Fender Super amplifier, and have been searching for the ideal pedal version of the effect ever since.

We got a fantastic insight into the quality and craft of JAM Pedals when we visited them in 2019 and were blown away by the artisan nature of every stage of design and production.

A few beers later there in Athens and the idea for Harmonious Monk was born: a tremolo pedal that has both Harmonic and Amplitude modes…that also addressed the issues we had with our favourite existing examples of the breed.

 

Namely: it needed a master volume to go above and below unity gain; we wanted some form of EQ control to balance with all rigs; enough adjustability in the effect depth and mix to sit it perfectly in your tone; and finally, we really wanted it to be all analogue for that unmistakeable richness of tone, depth and feel.

Jannis and the team and JAM have done an incredible job. We are absolutely over the moon with how it has turned out, not to mention extremely proud of the opportunity to work at such an uncompromising level of build and finish.

KEY FEATURES

1.

The Harmonious Monk uses all-analogue circuitry with two selectable LFOs providing varying levels of modulation intensity, available in both Harmonic and Amplitude modes: essentially four core sounds. 

2.

We have included both depth and mix controls, so you can get it sat just right in your overall tone.

3.

Subtle (-) setting in Amplitude mode offers a plethora of vintage-inspired tremolo tones with all the same adjustability as Harmonic mode.

4.

Intense (+) setting brings the chop! Stuttering, staccato pulses that add drama and rhythm to your music right up to a fast warble that can sound truly otherwordly. 

5.

We also added a footswitch so you can access two tremolo speeds instantly in any mode; internal trimmers to shape the EQ to your liking, and the ability to either boost or cut the overall output level to suit your rig and other pedals. 

6.

It’s true bypass and takes a standard Boss-style centre-negative 9VC DC adapter. Maximum current draw is around 35mA. 

7.

Let there be wobble! (And yes, Mick’s favourite setting is with everything at two o’clock in Subtle/Harmonic mode!)

One great tremolo sound would be enough, but two seals the deal.
