I bought a Demeter Tremulator four or five years ago. Unfortunately, it's been a huge disappointment and I've never really used it. It distorts the signal in an unpleasant way. I bought it because I saw a guitarist I really like, Tony Gilkyson, using one in front of a BFSR. I assumed he preferred it to the built-in amp trem but perhaps that wasn't working. And I read that Ry Cooder was involved to some degree with the creation of the pedal and that sealed the deal. The amps I primarily use have built-in trem so I've just let the Tremulator gather dust to this point. But there are two recent changes to my rig and I find the need for a trem pedal. 1. I recently got a 1953 Fender Deluxe that obviously pre-dates tremolo. 2. I've been playing a lot lately through two amps and using the stereo out from a Strymon El Capistan at the end of the chain. I absolutely love this sound; it's addicting. But if I want to use tremolo through both amps I need an external pedal. I have tried using the trem on just one of the amps and that is very cool for some things. The trem on my 1960 Gibson GA18T has a really nice ethereal quality. But if I want just a good swampy mono trem I need it to work for both amps. Anyway, here’s my question. Has anybody ever had this problem with the Tremulator? It’s like a boost along with a tremolo. I just want the trem. I don’t want to have to adjust my volume every time I use it.
