Tap Tempo


If for some reason, you still don’t know about or haven’t experienced any of the sonic marvels that Walrus Audio continually puts out into the effects community, you need to get on that quick (after you read this and watch the demo, of course). For the rest of us, it comes as no surprise that Colt and the crew have come up with an incredible new tremolo to unleash on the world: the Monument Harmonic Tap Tremolo. Featuring...

Where do we even start with a pedal like this? The Goatkeeper 3 has become a pedal of mystery and intrigue, not to mention hard to find and pretty expensive, too. Described as an analog tremolo sequencer, this big white whale is so much more, a giant tone machine just itching to be experimented with, and thanks to the folks at Lightfoot Labs, one that we get to indulge in for you today. The Goatkeeper is a pedal unlike most, utilizing...

When one of the most talked about and anticipated effects of the year shows up on your doorstep, the excitement that has been building up in your brain finally becomes a reality. The aptly named Reverb pedal from Empress Effects is the pedal we’re talking about today, and it absolutely lives up to the hype.

Multi-effects pedals can be tricky to write reviews about, as there is so much going on, and so many different options to choose from that it makes it hard to narrow the writing down and focus on a few things to discuss in detail. Such is the case with today’s featured pedal, the M5 Stompbox Modeler from Line 6 – and if the regular functionality of this pedal wasn’t overwhelming enough, this model has been modded by...

Keeping with the theme of “best modulation gear on the planet”, we present you with the Gravitas Analog Tremolo. As with the other Chase...

Well, this is a unique, intriguing and awesome pedal idea right here. Dave over at Seafoam Pedals has come up with a way to take three of our favorite pedal add-ons and fit them into one enclosure (well, two of them at a time, anyway). Most of us use at least one, if not all, of these 3 extras in our effects setups: Volume, Expression and Tap Tempo. Sometimes, there’s just not enough room on your board to have 2 expression...

The Warbler Tap Tremolo pedal from Midnight 30 Music is a two-of-a-kind pedal, meaning there’s only one other one in existence. I was lucky enough to snatch this guy up, and am now the proud owner of a versatile, fun, deep, lush and rare tremolo pedal. It’s got some great features, a super-rad Star Trek graphic and a lot more that we’ll get into in this review as well. The Warbler is a pretty complicated pedal, to be...

The Time Traveler Tap Tempo pedal from Tapestry Audio is the world’s first tap tempo pedal with 10 BPM presets. It sends out a momentary signal just, like any standard tap pedal, when you select your preset by stepping on the right footswtich. The left footswitch gives you the ability to tap in a BPM and the knob in the middle lets you dial in the exact BPM. Click the knob to save the BPM on whatever preset number you are...
