Description

Details

The Electro Harmonix Super Pulsar Stereo Tap Tremolo Guitar Effects Pedal is quite possibly one of the most advanced tremolo/pan effects pedals ever conceived. In short, whatever you can think of - and a whole lot that is probably beyond comprehension - with regard to shaping your tone, if the Super Pulsar can't do it, then it probably can't be done.

The Tremolo Effect

The subtle flutter of tremolo, was one of the first effects to be widely employed by guitarists to give their tone a truly unique flavour. By adjusting volume level over time, tremolo can be used to create a gentle wave or a shimmering ethereal soundscape. Legends including The Rolling Stones, The Smiths, R.E.M., Radiohead have all employed tremolo to superb effect, and some of the most recognisable riffs in rock history wouldn’t be the same if it wasn’t for beauty of tremolo.

Controls

Though it may appear to be somewhat overwhelming at first glance, the control set-up has been very carefully considered, and you'll thankfully be up and running in no time. Firstly, there are a series of control knobs that affect: Volume, RT. Phase, Wave, Shape, Depth, Rate, Envelope Depth, and Envelope Rate. There are also a series of buttons that control: Wave Invert, Tap Divide, Expression Mode, and xRate.

Your guitar’s dry signal waveform can be controlled in a myriad of ways, giving you complete mastery over the sound you desire. Changing the speed, depth, intensity, shape/direction/pulse/pattern of the waveform is all within easy reach.

Not only can you affect the tremolo based on manipulation of the modulation waveform, you can set the Super Pulsar to respond to the way you pick your guitar (Env. Depth and Env. Rate). You can perform unique tricks such as controlling depth and rate of the effect in proportion to how hard or soft you strike the strings, i.e. setting the tremolo effect to speed up or slow down in proportion to how emphatically you play.

As we’ve come to expect from the team at Electro Harmonix, the Super Pulsar footswitches are rugged and responsive, offering an assured and reliable feel. The Tap footswitch and Beat LED set and indicate the modulation rate you set. The Mode (Preset) footswitch enables you to change between the factory preset Normal Mode, or create your own 8 presets that can be recalled quickly during performances. The Bypass footswitch allows you to instantly switch between effect mode and true bypass mode – and is also used when saving presets.

Connectivity

As well as offering both Mono and Stereo inputs and outputs, the Super Pulsar has an input connection for an expression pedal, ensuring that real-time control couldn’t be easier. By employing the stereo connections, the panning effect made available by the RT. Phase and Wave Invert controls can be used to greater effect.

It is very difficult to do the Electro Harmonix Super Pulsar Stereo Tap Tremolo Guitar Effects Pedal the justice it deserves in this brief description, as its tone-shaping capabilities are endless. If you’re a musician who likes to experiment, explore, and create, then there couldn’t be anything better than this box of delights. Pair it with other excellent EHX pedals such as the B9 or C9 organ machine, and you’ll probably never leave your bedroom/house/studio again.
