Mr Black's family of small format pedals grows as the Mini Tremolo is unveiled

Mr Black sure has been busy downsizing the size of its guitar effects pedals (opens in new tab) of late. This past few months we have seen the Mini Octaves (opens in new tab) , the Mini Reverb (opens in new tab), the Mini Vintage Chorus (opens in new tab) and Mini Echo-Delay (opens in new tab) waltzing off the Papa Black R&D workbench and onto our pedalboards. 

And now here comes the Mini Tremolo. 

It follows a similar format to Mr Black's other mini guitar effects (opens in new tab) and offers vintage tremolo tones with harmonic vibrato controls for further texturing your wobble with the sort of Leslie-esque tones you might be able to dial in on, say, a pre-CBS Fender Super. 

It is a helluva a lot cheaper, too. 

The controls are super simple: Intensity for the tremolo effect's depth/strength; Harmonics for dialling in harmonic vibrato; and Speed for setting the rate of the effect.

The Mini Tremolo is handmade in Portland, Oregon, is true bypass, takes a 9VDC input, and it's so small you can be pretty sure you can find the space for it.

You can pre-order the Mini Tremolo here (opens in new tab) at an introductory price of $99.95 (£85, €95 approx).
