The Trouble With Tremolo
Ahh sweet sweet tremolo, so good the very first individual effect was a tremolo way back in the 1940’s (yes that’s right not long until 100 years of stomp boxes).
Arguably the very best tremolo tones are those found in amps and specifically older Fender amps and that’s why our friend from sunny Greece, Jam Pedals have designed the Chill Tremolo to sound like these early Fender tremolos.
The trouble with tremolo is perceived volume loss, this is due to half of what we’re hearing being removed. The highest volumes are the same but it sure doesn’t feel like it! What the very best Tremolo’s do to combat this it add more volume to the output which behaves like a boost and allowing the tremolo effect to come in at unity gain.
Jam pedals of course added this feature but they’ve taken it one step further.
By reducing the tremolo effect (depth at 0) and pushing the volume you get a very pleasant sounding boost from your analog trem pedal!
All in all this pedal gives the user everything needed from a trem plus a boost feature and it looks amazing just like the entire Jam range.
