The Green Tremolo
Posted on February 13th, 2016
I built this tremolo a while ago but only got around to finishing it off this week. I have done a few stamp pedals in the past, I really like the effect and find each stamp interesting. I always like to think one of them is worth a lot of money and I just stuck to a pedal. It’s quite a labour intensive process and it takes quite a few layers of clear coat to protect the surface, which often leads to a slight discolouration. However, I think this adds to the pedal and makes it look slight aged. All the stamp are East Germany era stamps. I have added labels written using a type writer.
The pedal is a Fuzz dog EA tremolo which I have adapted to allow an external rate control. The LEDs (a lovely emerald green) blinks with the speed of the tremolo with some modifications to the 3PDT daughter board.
