The Keeley Dynatrem may be one of the coolest pedals we have seen in some time. Not only does it pack a great range of sounds, but also fully dynamic control parameters allowing you to set the rate or depth control exactly how you like. Select one of the three inbuilt modes and start experimenting with your pick attack to get some great tremolo vibes.
On the surface, you'll find your standard tremolo control parameters. However it's underneath the hood that you'll discover the cool features, influencing how you use modulation effects like this.
Set to the left most position on the three way selector for a dynamic rate control where the harder you pick the faster the rate goes up. When in dynamic mode, the rate and depth controls set how sensitive the dynamic range is meaning you can still keep it low down even when you pick aggressively. The shape control sets the shape of the waveform. Including ramp up, sine wave, ramp down and square wave settings.
In the middle position, you have a dynamic depth which gets wider the harder you pick. The harmonic tremolo mode offers something a unique, sweet and soulful vibe sound. In this mode, the shape control transforms into a one-knob reverb that you can dial in to add some wetness into your tone.
Built Like A Tank
Like all Keeley pedals, the Dynatrem is built to last a lifetime with a tough metal chassis and top grade components inside. With true bypass circuitry, it can become a trustworthy pedal on your live board.
Here's what Keeley say about the Dyanatrem:
