The team's opinion: The Black Cat Mini Trem is a very original effect pedal! Indeed, it is a tremolo coupled with a clean boost. And that's a very good idea, but we'll come to that later.
This tremolo offers very warm sounds, typical of the 70's. The latter begins with a very subtle tremolo, on the verge of chorus and ends with a very marked effect (boulevard of broken dreams style).
The classic Speed and Depth knobs allow you to manage the tremolo effect itself. However, the Black Cat Mini Trem has a few surprises in store. First of all, the Tone knob is exemplary in its frequency management. It is possible to adapt it to any type of guitar.
But the real originality of the latter lies in the speed switch and the boost knob. Let's start with Speed. This switch allows you to divide or double the speed of the tremolo by 2! Original. Next comes the Boost knob, which compensates for the loss of volume associated with a tremolo.
But the cool thing is that it is possible to use the pedal only as a boost! Indeed, if you put the Speed and the Depth to the minimum, you can then use it as a boost! You will no longer have to gauge the volume of the Tone.
An excellent reference, and a good alternative to the Vertigo Audio Source.
