Three tremolos in a tiny stompbox

Our Verdict

A versatile tremolo despite the tiny dimensions.

For

  • Three tremolo types. Weird tones. Small footprint.

Against

  • Weird tones! Some controls inside chassis.
Buying options

This diminutive pedal is one of Lovepedal's Mini range offspring, and gives you three different tremolo variations (sine, sawtooth and squarewave) in not a lot of real estate.

The knob sets tremolo speed, and you also get two 'set and leave' controls inside the chassis for tremolo depth (effected/dry ratio) and output volume.

"It takes a while to get the sound you like, as there's a lot of frankly weird stuff in here"

The Babyface has a greater speed range than most tremolo pedals, the fastest almost sounding like ring modulation. The sine wave provides a familiar Fender amp-style warble and throb, while you can get a real on/off chop from the square wave setting.

It takes a while to get the sound you like, as there's a lot of frankly weird stuff in here, too, that can be initially jarring. You may well love that of course.

If there's space on your 'board for a tremolo pedal (and at this size there ought to be), the Babyface is a good option, despite some of the controls being hidden away. Let's pulse, baby.
