Combining Vibrato and Tremolo [Anatomy of Guitar Tone]

[guitar playing]

Hi, this is Mark Marshall with
The Anatomy of Guitar Tone.

In this episode, I’m going to be talking about
using a tremolo and a vibrato at the same

time, at almost the same speed, to create
a really interesting swirly effect.

Often when you’re choosing, you choose one
or the other, like a vibrato or a tremolo,

but if you put them both on and you set them
to very similar speeds, they can really do

neat things with one another and rub each
other in an interesting way.This is why I

like to use individual pedals or two separate
amps as opposed to a multi-effects processor

that would put both of those effects at the
same speed.

For this example, we’re not going to use two
amps, I’m just going to use two pedals in

series, and I ran vibrato first and tremolo
second.

It should be noted that sometimes, if you
switch your effects that it will slightly

alter the sound of the combination of the
two.

I encourage you to experiment with that a
little bit.

For the vibrato, I’m using this Bigfoot Effects
Magnavibe.

They’ve done a really great job of capturing
the essence of the vibrato that’s in those

Magnitone amps.

For tremolo, I’m using this FullTone Supa-Trem.

It’s one of my favorite tremolo pedals.

It just really sounds to my ears like a Blackface
Tremolo.

You’ll notice that I have a different knob
on here.

One of the things I’ve started to do with
all of my vibrato pedals is replace the rate

knob with these knobs from Stomp Shield.

The reason is it blocks anything from moving
the knob.

I’m sure many of you have had the experience
where you get everything set perfectly, especially

with a rate knob, and you put your pedalboard
in a gig bag, and you get in a gig — or

maybe your cable grabs it and moves it, and
you’ve lost your settings, and it’s really

hard to get it back to that exact position
you set it to in the rehearsal room.

These big knobs are great because they allow
me to prevent that from happening.
