Used to be, a lot of guitar amps, even inexpensive ones, had a tremolo circuit (think CCR's "Midnight Special", "Born On The Bayou" "I Heard It Through The Grapevine", Aretha Franklin's "Chain of Fools" or The Staples Singers "Respect Yourself" if you're not sure what sound I'm talking about) built right in...not so much the case these days. I love that sound, though, and have looked very hard for a pedal to give it to me, and, after trying out just about everything out there, I was delighted to find it in such an economical unit as the Danelectro "Tuna Melt" (from the Danelectro "Snack Food" series of mini-FX)...about 1/3 to 1/10 the price of the other units out there and every bit as good sounding!Definitely try one out...I think you'll agree!

Hello Musicfriends - This is built cheap but sounds great. Good controls too. For me in the studio/songwriting its perfect but I would not exactly go on tour with it..... There is something about the knobs I still love, even if all my other digital units have a tremolo hidden in it... may be the age thing...

I'm a very retro/roots oriented guitar player, and I had been wanting a tremelo for a long time, so when I heard about this, I got one. Have not been disappointed. Classic 50's/ 60's shiver, from Bo Diddley and Duane Eddy to CCR(you WILL play Born on the Bayou over and over again for hours when you first get this thing. Trust me). I compared this to many more expensive trem pedals, such as the Boss, but overall, this thing wins hands down. I also compared it to the tremelo on a friends '66 Fender Vibro Champ. The Vibro Champ sounded a bit more warm and buttery, due to it's trem circuit being all tube, but this thing comes DANG CLOSE. I don't know that you could really tell the difference between the two unless you were listening for it. It's easy as pie to use. It has two knobs: rate and depth, and a hard/soft switch. The soft setting is more of a classic Fender trem sound, while the hard setting is more a complete on/off effect, like a Vox's tremelo. The hard setting is probably not one you're going to be using much. However, if you're looking for the sound that Johnny Marr got on the Smith's "How Soon is Now" or something like that, then the hard switch will help you get there. The only downside to this pedal is the same as with all Danelectro mini-pedals: its small size and plastic construction. I've not had any failures yet, but if you're not careful and you stomp on this thing like an idiot with your size 13 boots, it WILL break. Treat it well though, and act like a sane human, and it will probably last you forever. If you gig with this you're probably only going to use this for one or two songs in a set anyway. But, if you're going after a vintage vibe, this is essential.

For all those who dig the old timey Tremolo from like, old spaghetti westerns, this is the pedal for you. If you're all about the kind of Tremolo that's so popular in Surf Rock, again. PERFECT. You get so much sound quality from such a small little thing, it'll knock your socks off. Dano's = Best Bang for your Bucks.
