First, let's have a look at the Wampler Latitude Deluxe V2. The all-American Wampler Latitude deluxe tremolo pedal has a few more controls to fiddle with, which should be expected of a deluxe model. In addition to common speed (rate) and depth controls it features space, attack, and level to play around with the core tone of the tremolo.
And now we will have a look at our second product, the Fulltone Supa-Trem ST-1. This sweet tremolo effect pedal contains a photo-cell (or octocoupler) usually employed in vintage American tube amps. Replicating the same circuitry as the famous Fender vibrato pedals tones without a interfering tickling sound.
The Wampler Latitude tremolo makes for a great modulation pedal, capable of producing consistent classic tremolo tones as well as modern stutters and chops. Choose between 3 sound wave settings; sine waves, peak waves, and square waves and tweak fraction by fraction for a multitude of desirable effects.
The Fulltone Supa-Trem ST-1 benefits form a half/full tempo foot switch and in addition to Speed and Mix dials (which control the rate and intensity within the mix) it has a secondary foot control presenting guitar player with the opportunity to switch between 'hard' for choppy machine gun, helicopter vibes and 'soft' for pleasing wavering tremolo tone.
