Foxgear Presents the Guy Pratt Knee Trembler Tremolo

The pedal was inspired by the classic Pink Floyd song, "One of These Days."

Forlì, Italy (December 20, 2018) -- The project: Guy Pratt, the famous bass player of Pink Floyd and many other big artists, is now touring around the world with the new band Saucerful of Secrets. The new project by Nick Mason. While working on their rigs, the need of a particular kind of tremolo has emerged, especially for “One of These Days," where he uses the Foxgear Echosex Baby. Guy says: “The Knee Trembler gives me the tremolo i need, fierce and precise every time”

The Knee Trembler has a special LFO designed to be fierce or smooth as you need… very simple controls like speed, and intensity that let you control the attack and character of the tremolo. It runs at 9V like all the other Foxgear pedals and his retail price is just $89.

Features:

  • Smart dimensions: The pedals from the Foxgear Professional Compact series measure only 2,3” x 4,7” x 1,1”, and thanks to their top mounted jacks, they can easily fit in any pedalboard. Compared to other manufacturer’s lesser-quality, side-jack mounted micro-pedals, you can fit 4 Foxgear pedals in the same space normally needed for 3 of the other manufacturer’s micro-pedals.
  • Quality: Foxgear pedals are constructed with non-SMD components in the audio path, with analog design, and high-quality components like Wima capacitors, real Alpha 16mm pots, non-plastic trimmers, and a true bypass circuit that includes Panasonic golden pin relays. That’s why all Foxgear pedals are covered with a full 5 Year warranty!!
  • Sound: We pay a lot of attention to sound; tone is everything. Generally, it is a rarity to see a micro pedal in a pro’s pedal board. That is changing as the world wakes to discover the tone quality of the new Foxgear Professional Compact series pedals.
  • Look: The Foxgear Compact series is constructed with a completely screw-free housing. Additionally, the look is enhanced by the utilization of an acrylic faceplate that lights up with a pleasant warm-glow once connected to power a pure piece of art in an attractive, yet sturdy housing.

Luthier Maegen Wells recalls the moment she fell in love with the archtop and how it changed her world.

The archtop guitar is one of the greatest loves of my life, and over time it’s become clear that our tale is perhaps an unlikely one. I showed up late to the archtop party, and it took a while to realize our pairing was atypical. I had no idea that I had fallen head-over-heels in love with everything about what’s commonly perceived as a “jazz guitar.” No clue whatsoever. And, to be honest, I kind of miss those days. But one can only hear the question, “Why do you want to build jazz guitars if you don’t play jazz?” so many times before starting to wonder what the hell everyone’s talking about.

After many decades of sticking with flagship body shapes, Fender spent the last several years getting more playful via their Parallel Universe collection. The Meteora, however, is one of the more significant departures from those vintage profiles. The offset, more-angular profile was created by Fender designer Josh Hurst and first saw light of day as part of the Parallel Universe Collection in 2018. Since then, it has headed in both upscale and affordable directions within the Fender lineup—reaching the heights of master-built Custom Shop quality in the hands of Ron Thorn, and now in this much more egalitarian guise as the Player Plus Meteora HH.
