The Valco company of Chicago made amplifiers under their own name in addition to building amps for other companies such as Supro®, National, and Gretsch, to name a few. Most of these were lower powered amps with a great sounding natural tube breakup and many models also featured a unique sounding tube driven tremolo. It had a hypnotic throb and was also capable of hard, choppy tremolo. Combined with the breakup overdriven characteristics of the amplifier, it created a percussive, rhythmic pulse that is very inspiring to play. The Catalinbread Valcoder was designed to recreate the tube tremolo as well as the amplifier breakup of these vintage amplifiers in a pedal. Separate input and output controls allow you to get anything from a clean tremolo sound all the way up to a gritty tube like breakup driving the tremolo circuit.

I hardly use pedals but my amp didn't have a tremolo, found that this did the job. Blooms and decays excellently into the front end.

Classic tone

It sounds like a genuine amo tremolo. Yeah it doesnt have anything crazy going on but accomplished what it sets out to do. The rate can go surprisingly fast, giving a unique steccato. It's warm and i appreciate the seperate input and output levels. For my classic rock rig, this works well.
