Designed to faithfully reproduce the classic amp-style tremolo of days past, the Bayou tremolo focuses on vintage analog sweetness while adding modern upgrades and features such as true bypass switching, pulsing LED, and top-notch build quality. 3 external controls provide you with ample command of the Bayou’s tonal performance. The DEPTH knob offers everything from a light and buttery shimmer, to a deep pulsing throb, while the RATE control ranges from slow warble, to full-tilt flutter. Lastly, the LEVEL knob makes it extremely simple to find unity volume, and if desired, can give a significant boost.
In fact, with the DEPTH control at 0 and the LEVEL set to a fair amount of boost, the Bayou gives a wonderfully unique kick to the tubes without overly coloring your signal, and with a twist of the RATE knob, you can give your leads a subtle stutter effect that stays low in the mix, or keep the RATE low for a barely audible, almost vibe-like quality. Good times.
The Bayou tremolo offers serious bang for your buck, allowing you to conjure up vintage hoodoo with a little modern magic for good measure. If you’re looking for a compact tremolo with features you NEED and tone you can trust, the Bayou is your one way ticket to trem-phoria.
