Two different sounding analog optical devices utilize a first ever Warmth pot to dial in vintage tube sounding tremolo to more aggressive tremolo

Fairport, NY  (August 17, 2012) – DLS Effects has announced the release of the new TR1 Tremolo pedal. This pure Analog, Stereo Tap Tremolo offers tons of tremolo styles and functionality – enough to satisfy any musician! Some of the unique features include:

• Two different sounding analog optical devices utilize a first ever Warmth pot to dial in vintage tube sounding tremolo to more aggressive tremolo, or any blend in between!
• A first ever Shape pot transforms the tremolo wave shape and duty cycle for a multitude of flavors like vintage rhythmic tremolo, slicing tremolo, playing backwards sound, and much more.
• The speed of the Tremolo can be controlled using the Rate Pot, or Tap Tempo, or by using an external Expression Pedal.
• Tap Tempo can be multiplied by 1, 2, 3 or 4 beats per tap, plus is stored in non volatile memory.
• Two independent in/out channels can be used in Mono or Stereo, including a Ping Pong mode that pans from amp to amp. Channel-A in/out utilizes True Bypass switching, while Channel-B in/out has a buffered output.
• The TR1 Tremolo has a small footprint, only measuring 4.3” wide by 4.7” deep!
• The unit runs from 9vdc (any polarity) and is charge pumped near 15vdc to achieve ultimate headroom and keep the instrument sounding warm, clear, and free from distortion.

MRP: $299, Street price $249

The flask-sliding swashbuckler's turning point with guitar was hearing (and absorbing) the Delta bluesman's thumping, percussive rhythms.

While Monolord has no shortage of the dark and heavy, guitarist and vocalist Thomas V Jäger comes at it from a perspective more common to pop songsmiths.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
