Why you can trust MusicRadar Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out more about how we test.

The Tranquilizer features a control that sweeps between its phase and vibe - you can plump for either effect or combine the two for some shimmering, wobbly tones like a Leslie speaker hooked up to a Uni-vibe.

The focus control is a bit weird - very little happens until you hit a sweet spot where the effect intensifies.

It's eccentric, but we've grown to love it. We have no such qualms with the Fat knob. Some phase/vibe pedals suck the bottom-end from your sound, but this one boosts it.
