    Shameless technique to get you to look...



    Source Audio Vertigo Tremolo pedal ordered with my Christmas gift card to Amazon:)

    Anyone remember this Mel Brooks take on Vertigo...

    Best part is the camera under the coffee table scene with Cloris Leachman & Harvey Korman.

    I have the Source Audio Lunar Phaser in my bass rig. There’s a groovy 12 pole phaser in the neuro app, and also flanger and chorus sounds. The shape control is a nice feature. Looks like the Vertigo can do a chorus, flanger and even a Leslie effect via the app.

    That’s a manly looking pedal board...black and gold very macho!

    Hitchcock Easter Egg.
    He plays a cameo in every effect.

    Sounds good.

    Looks like fun. That’s actually favorite Hitchcock movie.

    I like! The Opto Trem' is predictably choppy, but that just means it's a good emulation. The Bias Trem' is excellent and is my favorite. The Harmonic Trem' doesn't lead to queasiness, which is an accomplishment in and of itself. I've heard any number of modern takes on the Harmonic Trem' which overdo the effect and end up inducing seasickness in the listeners. Looks like a great pedal.

    That’s a good endorsement Synchro! They do sound good in the headphones and Rich gave the thumbs up as well.
    The Bias is what has me also, I’ll be using it mostly for a sprinkle of Hammond vibe.
    Stereo action is what I’m most looking forward to although I admit that it is practically pointless:D
    The price isn’t much different from a lot of vibes with fewer features and the footprint is small. Seemed like a good overall value to me.
    Can’t wait to give it a try. Fortunately but unfortunately, I’ll be out of town training for my new job when it arrives.

    I like that you can select buffered or bypass. I could see myself buying one of these.

    I’ll give you my two cents when I can.

    @Ricochet tell me about the BearFoot Yellow OD? I see we have the same pedal power unit also....Bradshaw.

    I have to say, one of these and the Collider Reverb/Delay unit would make for one heck of a pedalboard, as far as my needs are concerned.

    Haha...awesome! I bought the SYO3 in case I want to get my Tweed on. Had a Les Lius before that, but I want to get rid of all Lovepedals.

    Most of my amps are firmly in the Blackface type cleans, Marshall JCM800(or a rodded version) type dirt camp. I never set out to do so, but apparently my ears like that particular tonality.

    This guy says it better than I could. Listen to him plug into a Morgan PR12...

    I concur. Add a good overdrive and I’d be happy as well.

    Sounds like a good OD. Functionality similar to my Barber LTD which is also a phenomenal pedal as long as your using single-coils.
