Ernie Ball Expression Tremolo: MusicRadar hands-on

Michael Astley-Brown and Simon Arblaster get excited by Ernie Ball’s latest expression pedal, the Expression Tremolo.

Joining the Expression Overdrive and Ambient Delay, this purple treadler retains its brothers' solid build quality, and boasts five waveforms (including the uni-vibe-like Harmonic mode) and a rather fine spring reverb.

Since we filmed this demo, the price tag has changed to $199/£199. The pedal's international launch is in September.

Gear used: Fender American Original Jazzmaster, Vox AC15

I take care of the reviews on MusicRadar and Future Music magazine, though can sometimes be spotted in front of a camera talking little sense in the presence of real musicians. For the past 30 years, I have been unable to decide on which instrument to master, so haven't bothered. Currently, a lover of all things high-gain in the guitar stakes and never one to resist churning out sub-standard funky breaks, the likes of which you'll never hear.
