Anyone try one? It looks like a great idea to me.
The YT demo is awesome:
The look of the pedal reminds me of my first transistor radio (Magnavox) back in the early 60s.
Oh what the heck, I just ordered one. It does sound awesome on that demo video...
I need this for my Lil Dawg tweed deluxe.
I'm amazed at some of the Univibe type tones it gets....and such lush verb
Dang that sounds nice. Perfect '2 in 1' for my small board.
And love that Collings too.....
I will pull the trigger, it's just a matter of time!!!!!
Ha yeah, I was wondering when you would chime in. It is kind of required for your board isn't it?
How many pedals is too many? how many guitars? how many amps??
It sounds great but is it possible to play as a standard tremolo without the dynamic effect? If not that would put me off I think.
Not to worry Scubadoo, I'll bet Analogman will have a mod for controlling dynamics if this pedal gains traction in the market.
I think this is what AndreDanican was alluding to. You probably need to make real estate for a second tremolo, just because it is so cool sounding.
I'm in next paycheck!
A pedal I didn't know I needed.
I'm not sure if I should thank you guys or curse you.
I just got one delivered today. I only played with it for about 30 minutes but first impression is that is has lots of subtle variations in it. The Harmonic tremolo is like a univibe, Hendrix is there. It definitely responds differently to different output pickups, haven't exactly sorted that out yet. Lots of fun ahead with this one!
Harmonic Tremolos (Magnatone, big Fender Brownface combos, etc) are kissing cousins to the Univibe - in the way it sounds, but not so much the circuit itself. I used a Fuchs Creme De La Trem for a long time to mimic that Brownface Vibrato, but recently switched over to a Big Tone Brewery Maggie for a Magnatone vibe. I guess all of that listening to Robert Cray finally made me drift away from the Brownface into Magnatone territory. The Maggie sounds spot on for me. My understanding is that the designer basically traced a Magnatone and lifted the circuit. Any difference you might hear is the preamp and speakers of the Magntone itself - not the vibrato section. Its a pretty cool pedal if you are looking for that sound.
Congrats. Give us some updates. Readers want to know.
Who else has one and can report back. I have a Fulltone Supa Trem. Wondering if this pedal can give me that quality of classic tremolo? The other features and smaller footprint of the DynaTrem are icing on the cake.
This is one of the best pedals I have heard in a while.
Definitely something I will want to purchase soon if I can.
Thanks for sharing!
I'm had this pedal for about a month now.
The Keeley Dyna Trem doesn't have a standard old-time tremolo setting. It varies either the depth of the effect or the rate of the effect based on the the signal strength. For example, if you pick hard with the depth setting, at the beginning of the note you get a deep tremolo that gradually evens out as the signal from the guitar decays leaving you with a regular 'flat' sound near the end of the sustaining note. I like the two types of tremolo settings quite a lot, with a preference for the Dynamic Depth setting. The third possibility, the Harmonic tremolo setting, is something like a vibe pedal and I love it. I'm happy I bought this pedal and would definitely recommend it, however, if you're looking for something that just does a simulation of an old Fender amp tremolo I think you could get that elsewhere for much less money.
