BTR#47 Vintage Tremolo: from amplifier to pedal

A comprehensive rundown on the tremolo effect: from the De Armond Rowe "Tremolo Control" of the 1940's to the tube circuits of the amplifiers of the 1950's, to the Vox "Repeat Percussion" of the 1960's and so on. Finally we'll discover some great contemporary tremolo pedals that draw directly their inspiration from vintage amplifiers: Surfy Industries Surfyvibe, Surfy Industries Surfytrem, Subdecay Vagabond and Origin Effects Deluxe 61 or Revival Trem. The world of classic tremolo from a historical, technical and cultural point of view!
