Ever since Shin-e created the classic UNIVIBE pedal in the 1960’s to emulate the Leslie rotary speaker sound we’ve had a love affair with the Harmonic Tremolo. Fatter than a chorus and thicker than a phaser the Harmonic Tremolo adds depth and character without any unwanted smear. The new AGE Harmonic Tremolo is an entirely analog recreation of that effect with a few modern tricks up its sleeve. Ad Spinner for even more fun.
Harmonic tremolo is one of the rarest and most interesting effects, allowing you to make your sound highly personal.
It brings a much livelier motion than a tremolo, it doesn’t have the outdated stigma of the chorus, and it takes up less space than a delay or reverb.
Whether you’re looking to give your arpeggios a hypnotic edge or to add some thickness to your melodic lines, the Ages brings you a new take on modulation.
The Ages’ attack follower can work in two different ways. You choose whether it impacts the rate or the depth according to how hard you hit the strings. Secondary settings allow you to adjust every parameter in the most minute way for unprecedented results.
Imagine making the effect faster by strumming harder to make your bridge or solo more intense (and the rate automatically decreases until it reaches the one you originally set up with the tap tempo), or making your tremolo less present by playing softer in order not to make your rhythm parts too busy.
