Songbird FX Wagtail Trem USB Rechargeable Optical Tremolo Guitar Pedal
Songbird FX Wagtail Trem USB Rechargeable Optical Tremolo Guitar Pedal.
The Wagtail Trem is a Vactrol-based tremolo effects pedal for electric guitar. It recreates the legendary amp-style tremolo sound of the sixties. It can be heard in songs like CCR’s ‘Born On The Bayou’ and ‘Gimme Shelter’ by The Rolling Stones to name two. The highest build quality and an innovative charging circuit make the Wagtail Trem the perfect choice for professional and semi-professional musicians; as well as demanding hobby guitarists.
The pedal simply blew my mind. It behaves just like those old Super Reverb amps! The knobs react very sensitively. This vibrato is perfect for sound-surfing and it doesn’t overlay the output sound. Instead, it is perfectly placed underneath the sound. Absolute hit and recommendation!
