Line 6: ToneCore Tap Tremolo
The ToneCore Tap Tremolo pedal gives you pulsating tremolo just like you've always wanted. Using the Tap Tempo feature, along with adjustable dynamic speed control, peak setting, depth, and shape, your tone will chop, slice, and dice like no other. You can choose from three pulse-pounding models: Opto Tremolo, Bias Tremolo, or Stereo Panning.

Price paid: $ 109.8

Purchased from: Sound Control

Ease of Use: This pedal is increadably adjustable. It will go from soft subtle effects to extreme effects with grate ease. There are essentially 6 controls: Speed - controls the speed Depth - controls how much the effect "digs in" Peak - increases the speed the harder you play Shape - controls how extreme the effect is A 3-way "flavor" swich - changes the feel of the effect and activates the pan mode for stereo setups Tap Tempo - lets you tap the tempo to sync it to the song's tempo On/Off - Turns the effect on and off. The manual explains everything quite well. The pedal takes a bit of getting used to but it's worth it! // 8

Sound: I've tried the pedal with my parker fly and it sounds wonderful, but it also sounds great with my starmaker Strat Copy (20 guitar). This pedal will suit any genre you will ever use it in, it's very flexable! It's super quiet, no noise and doesn't suck away you're tone. // 10

Reliability & Durability: The pedal is bulky and metal. It all feels sturdy and it looks like it could take some knocks and come off un-harmed. // 9

Overall Impression: Basically, this is really a tremolo for all occasions. You can get nearly any sound from it you want. If this pedal were stolen I think I would buy another, it's really impressive! The tap tempo fuction takes some getting used to but its all good! It's very flexable and quiet. Top buy. // 9
