The EBS TremoLo is the latest contribution to the famous Black Label Pedals series. It gives you the choice of vintage type tremolo or sweeping filter effects.

The sweep character can be set to choice of three different waveforms; sine, square and saw tooth waveforms.

Mono or Stereo
The EBS TremoLo pedal operates in mono or true stereo with auto panning of the tremolo effect and use true bypass techniques.

Review in UK Bass Guitar Magazine

A tremolo for bass guitar? Could this be the Swedest thang?

Like the other pedals in the EBS range, the new TremoLo pedal boasts a compact size, slighter smaller than the average stomp box. Build quality is exemplary; ultra-solid metal construction combined with a thick rubber padded foot that prevents the pedal from sliding around the floor. Two main controls, Depth and Speed, sit slightly recessed into the body casing and feel sturdy, turning with a satisfying stiffness. The main on/off footswitch is a chunky metal affair, and the Type and Mode switches are also tough customers. Overall the TremoLo seems to be more than ready to live under the feet of clumsy bass players. Battery access on this pedal is through the underside of the unit and requires the user to remove the lower half of the pedal via four screws. This is by no means a quick-fire battery change, but perhaps indicates professional use where power supplies rather than batteries are favoured. EBS offers a multiple power supply which can be used to power up to six EBS pedals. The TremoLo, like the other EBS pedals is also able to run off of phantom power from several of the company’s amplifiers.

The TremoLo offers options for both amplitude and filter modulation controlled by the mode switch. This switch has two positions: Vol, for pure amplitude modulation, and Filt, for a sliding low pass filter operation. The type control enables the user to select from three different modulation waveforms – sine, triangle/sawtooth, or square. The depth rotary control sets the modulation depth of the tremolo effect. The speed control alters the speed of the tremolo effect itself. The pedal has two output sockets on the left hand side for mono or stereo operation and two inputs on the right hand side - to allow for a continuous stereo signal if using other stereo pedals such as chorus, reverb or delay. True bypass switching is utilised, meaning no loss of tone when the pedal is not operated.
First port of call was the sample sound settings in the manual. With the type selector set to sine wave modulation and the mode switch set to vol the indicator LED pulses to indicate the speed setting – a neat and useful feature. The first sample settings resulted in a classic

tremolo sound albeit of very limited use on bass. After electing to use the stereo output (and two amps), the sound was much improved, although the only use I could imagine for it would be for solo passages. The second sample setting was labelled ‘dazzling tremolo’ and with the depth set to 10 o’clock, the speed at 2 o’clock, type set to triangle and the mode left on vol, the effect was indeed dazzling. Tapped passages sounded great here and I can imagine solo bassists finding plenty of use for this setting. The TremoLo pedal was undoubtedly fun to play with and the best results were achieved by using it in stereo. For a bass player, it’s of very limited use unless you are a solo bassist, or have solo spots in your gigs. If that’s you, then this will be a cracking addition to your pedal board. As tremolo pedals go, this one is tough, hard-wearing and easy to use – be warned: your guitar player may try to steal it.
