Lovepedal Announces Babyface Tremolo

The company expands their mini line with a 3-waveform trem.

White Lake, MI (September 3, 2009) -- Lovepedal has announced the latest in their line of mini effects: the Babyface Tremolo. The pedal features three switchable wave forms and internal depth and volume controls. The pedal's speed knob varies the speed from very slow to very fast, according to Lovepedal, "MUCH faster than [what] modern tremolo units offer."

Lovepedal describes the three waveform settings:
The far left setting is the most common wave you hear in many old blackface/brownface amplifiers. Typically called a sine wave, the top of the waveform is smooth and subtle. You can increase or decrease the depth in any setting with the internal depth and volume controls.

The middle setting not quite a full square wave chop, but a sawtooth waveform--almost a mixture of the sine and square wave.

The far right setting is full on square wave, or what we refer to as CHOP CITY. Absolutely no bleed, this waveform is excellent with fuzz, overdrive, and distortion for a full-on choppy, effected sound. Again, the internal controls will have to be dialed in on this setting to get the most comfortable feel and soundscape.
Additional features include 9VDC input power supply and relay switching true bypass LED status. The pedal is shipping now and retails for $129.

Playing in the pocket is the most important thing in music. Just think about how we talk about great music: It's "grooving" or "swinging" or "rocking." Nobody ever says, "I really enjoyed their use of inverted suspended triads," or "their application of large-interval pentatonic sequences was fascinating." So, whether you're playing live or recording, time is everyone's responsibility, and you must develop your ability to play in the pocket.
