A
inexpensive tremolo with hidden value
Anonymous 11.06.2014
It is wel build.
Has good working sound controls . Switch and inputs are good, i don't wear army boots though.
There are a few tremolo sounds we are familiar with. Cheap pedals can't get all those sounds.
This one doesn't have a warm sound but more hard or square sounding. Very useful though in its own way. My settings are 12 o clock on the first knob and 3 o clock on the rate knob. Good for slow Portishead sounds. Specially with delay added.

The Harley Benton from this serie that i have are all wel made, not expensive and functional. So we can buy more pedals ;)

Edit:
I found out that inside there are two micro pots. volume and the effect. By ear you can change the effect from square to yes: warm rounded. Be careful, but it makes a big and great difference! great sound! Check youtube for demo's.

Well built but a bit vanilla
Robert487 01.08.2017
Needed a cheap and cheerfull tremolo so picked up this HB version.

It's the usual harley benton quality as far as the build goes so no problems there.
Plugging it in and switching it on all worked as expected.
Dialling in some wobble i found it to be very subtle way up to 12 o'clock and then some.It's not that this pedal is bad or anything of that nature.It just doesn't give me the depth of tremolo i desire.
If you're after subtle tremolo then this is a nice little box at a strong price.If you want a pedal with a bit more modulation this will be a dissapointment.

It's all down to personal taste at the end of the day and i'm sure i'll find a use for the pedal at some point.

Great value for money tremolo pedal
Benni D. 03.10.2015
For little over £20, there is not much to complain about with this Vintage Tremelo pedal from Harley Benton.

Firstly it is built well. Like most of their pedals it is housed in a strong metal casing, with tough plastic knobs. This one looks cool with a bright yellow appearance and a meaty dog on the front. My only problem with the build of the product is the power connector - sometimes power will cut out and I will have to rejiggle the connection - it feels loose inside the unit and is the same on my Vintage Phaser pedal.

It sounds pretty good. No complaints from me for the price, but I have heard better tremolos, and I have also heard worse.

The features the pedal offers are a bit minimal however. You can only alter the intensity of the effect, and the rate of the effect. There is no option to alter the waveform or style of the tremolo effect - however this may or may not be because the unit is based on a particular classic tremolo pedal which did not have these features.

All in all, for the price you pay, it's a good pedal to add to your collection!

Very good but subtle tremolo
DDost 01.05.2021
This pedal is very good in what it does: subtle tremolo. Surfy sounds and shoegaze is easily achieved with this pedal. But if you're looking for a tremolo that can go into extreme (clippy killswitch sound) this pedal doesn't do that.
The speed and intensity rate work very well. But the pedal doesn't get very extreme.
This does make it easy to keep the tremolo effect very subtle.
All in all I'm very happy with the pedal! It works perfectly fine, had zero issues with it. I just wish there was a possibility to make it sound a tad more extreme whenever I needed it to.
