Thinking of getting this when it comes to Canada some time next week. I love harmonic Tremolo and I love how that mode sounds in the monument. I also like that there's a tap tempo built in, in case you need it and that it's got just the right amount of controls for me. Like I'm definitely not ready for the Chase Bliss Gravitas. So, any love for harmonic trem pedals? Anyone have the V1? I'd love to hear your thoughts!

This is a video great listen/watch for tremolo, old Fender amps, really nice drives and some killer slide playing. As a side note, I have a Voodoo Lab 4 knob tremolo. It has volume and blend knobs. This give a similar effect to harmonic tremolo. Probably not as complex in person as harmonic trem, but with the volume and blend set it does the trick.

Haha I've seen this episode so so many times. That's where I discovered harmonic trem (like many people) and I'd already been following Joey Landreth a long time before that. Just an unbelievable guitarist.

So I ordered this from Cosmo Music last week and they've placed the order with Walrus. With any luck, it'll be here in a week! Anybody else get into harmonic trem recently?

The real advantage of harmonic tremolo, at least for me, is that it's one of those things you feel you can simply leave on. I find the more obvious pulsing of a regular tremolo to be distracting at times. Because the signal never really "goes away" in a harmonic tremolo, it demands less attention-allocation. IN some respects, the difference between regular and harmonic tremolo, in perceptual/attentional terms, is like the difference between phasers and uni-vibes. Yes, they both pulse, but the one (phasers and tremolos) seizes your attention and demands you focus on that. Vibes and harmonic tremolo are more nuanced, and the sort of thing that can exist in the background. If I had to rank tremolos, it would be harmonic #1, bias #2, and opto #3. I don't dislike normal tremolo; I just like the others better.
