Anasounds Ages Harmonic Tremolo Pedal
Harmonic Tremolo is one of the original guitar effects, but it is often forgotten. Anasounds are doing the world of tone a service by putting a spotlight on this timeless modulation effect with their new pedal; the Ages.
The Ages Harmonic Tremolo is similar to an effect found in Brown Face era Fender amplifiers, and it differs greatly from your typical volume based tremolo effects found in Silverface amplifiers. What differentiates Harmonic Trem from a regular Tremolo you may ask? With harmonic tremolo the effect is actually splitting your signal into two, where there are two separate modulations occurring in opposite directions-one effecting the bass and the other your treble frequencies. The result is a unique effect that has more to do with pitch than volume and is without the volume loss of typical tremolo sounds.
The Ages is a hybrid digital/analog interpretation of this historic effect with a pure analog signal path. The result is a highly versatile, and satisfying modulation effect.
Like all Anasounds pedals, it is handmade in France with high quality components and features a laser engraved bamboo veneer set on a die cast aluminum enclosure. To say it is visually stunning is an understatement.
