AmpTweaker Swirlpool Jr tremolo vibe pedal


Here's what Amptweaker say about the SwirlPool JR

The SwirlPool Jr is a two-speed synchronized Tremolo/Vibe similar to circuits common in vintage 60’s amplifiers.

The new SwirlPool Jr Tremolo/Vibe pedal is a miniaturized version of Amptweaker’s popular SwirlPool. Reminiscent of the synchronized Tremolo and Vibrato circuits common in some vintage 60’s amplifiers, this fully analog pedal can duplicate many different types of modulation tones….as well as invent a few new ones.  The sounds range from smooth tremolo tones to dramatically jerky pitch shifting vibes, but the greatest tones come from blending the two.

The footswitch provides true bypass, but also can be used to access a 2nd speed control, and the speed ramps from one to the other. This ramp timing is user-adjustable via an internal trimpot.  If a Vibe knob is turned down, then the sound will be only tremolo, and can be tweaked from smooth to ‘Jerky’….but as the Vibe is added, the resulting combination can provide a subtle vocal quality or a dramatic pitch shift.

The mini switches help you really fine-tune the vibrato in the pedal…..the Tone switch can call up a more dramatic ‘swimmy’ phase-shifter type vibrato labelled Surf.  The Sync switch, slides the phase between the Tremolo and Vibe LFOs which changes the vowel-like character of the blended and synchronized effects. By using these in various combinations (see the Suggested Settings Below), it’s easy to get many different tremolo, vibe, and rotary speaker tones made famous in the 60’s and 70’s which are still commonly used today. And there’s even a master volume control so you can easily balance or boost the volume compared to when bypassed.
