Catalinbread Semaphore Tremolo Pedal -Custom
10% Off Coupon Code Available: PEDAL10
The Semaphore Tremolo Delivers classic tremolo sounds from the
smoothand buttery coaxing of vintage "harmonic vibrato" to more modern
aggressive hard chop "repeat percussion". There are of course plenty of
nontraditional trem-based sounds too - pulses, swells, blips, &
surf amplitude modulation can all be found inside. It wouldn’t be a
Catalinbread pedal if it didn’t do some weird stuff too, right?
The Semaphore doesn't color your tone, what you put in is what comes
out – and since it is analog there is none of the sterile, fake digital
clang you get from the "competition". Useful, intuitive features with
clear benefits – that is what this pedal is all about. We kept it
simple and easy to use with a minimum of tweaking required to find what
you’re looking for.
The Semaphore runs off a 9v battery or any good quality
9v/200mA/center-negative tip power supply. It can also be run at 18
volts for increased headroom if desired.
Volume governs the output – you can dial it in for a volume boost to
stand out in the mix or cut it for more subtle passages. Rate
determines the speed – from narcoleptically slow to Ring Mod fast. The
Slow/Fast switch works with the Rate knob to fine tune and extend the
overall range. Depth mixes the tremolo effect with the uneffected sound
– light and shimmery to deep and cavernous. The Shape knob in
conjunction with the Triangle/Square switch adjusts the wave shape from
swell, to triangle, to surf in Triangle mode and from pulse, to square,
to blip and any duty cycle in between in Square mode.
The crew of Catalinbread is confident that the Semaphore will find a
place in your creative palette of sounds.
