Hayward, CA (January 24, 2013) – The VHT Melo-Verb is a pedal recreation of the fabled tremolo and reverb effects that were first introduced as built-in amplifier features in the ‘60s. The two effects sections are completely independent, with separate true-bypass switching.

Tremolo
The all-analog Tremolo section features classic Speed and Intensity controls, and for additional flexibility, it also has modern Shape and Level controls.

The Shape control adjusts the tremolo character — everything from retro floating undulations to modern square-cornered chop.

When the Tremolo is engaged, the Level control can be set for added boost to help the effect stand-out more in the mix.

With the Depth control turned down, the Tremolo section can also serve as a clean boost pedal, with up to 9dB of boost from the Level control — it’s like getting a clean boost pedal for free.

Reverb
The Reverb section replicates the classic built-in tube-driven spring reverb tone, and takes it one step further with the addition of Tone and Mix controls, which were found on the most coveted outboard ‘60s reverb units.

The reverb tones range from soft, warm and round to bright splashy “tile wall spatter.”

Separately, these two effects provide a wide range of classic and modern tones — together they’re an unbeatable value.

Controls:
Tremolo — Speed, Intensity, Shape, Level
Reverb — Dwell, Tone, Mix
Switching — Independent true bypass footswitch for each effect
Power — External 9-volt DC power source (tip negative)

The VHT Melo-Verb tremolo and reverb pedal has a street price of $119.99

A lot of cruel fates can befall a gig. But unless you’re a complete pedal addict or live in high-gain-only realms, doing a gig with just a reverb- and tremolo-equipped amp is not one of them. Usually a nice splash of reverb makes the lamest tone pretty okay. Add a little tremolo on top and you have to work to not be at least a little funky, surfy, or spacy. You see, reverb and modulation go together like beans and rice. That truth, it seems, extends even to maximalist expressions of that formula—like the SolidGold FX Ether.
