Amazing Tremolo Control at Your Feet!
The new and improved Fulltone Supa-Trem ST-1 pedal puts a versatile, great sounding tremolo right at your feet. The Supa-Trem ST-1 uses a custom-designed fast-recovery photocell to faithfully mimic the trem circuits from 60s-era tube amps with one cool distinction: it avoids the ticking sounds that frequently accompany these trem circuits and pedals for a cleaner sound. When you don't need the warble, the ST-1 can operate as a clean boost pedal. Get vintage tremolo tones and more with the Fulltone Supa-Trem ST-1.
Fulltone Supa-Trem ST-1 Tremolo Pedal at a Glance:
- Pulls Double-duty as a Clean Boost
- Flexible Options to Dial in the Perfect Tremolo Sound
- Long-lasting pots for reliability
- Who uses Fulltone?
Clever guitarists figured out that the previous Supa-Trem did a pretty awesome job as a clean boost by turning up the internal volume control and turning down the Mix control. Fulltone endowed the ST-1 with that same functionality, but this time the volume control has conveniently migrated to the top of the pedal. The same basic principle applies: Set the Hard/Soft switch to soft, turn the volume up, and the Mix down and you've got access to up to 15dB of clean gain. To add trem to this boosted signal, just step on the Hard/Soft switch again and you have anormal sine-wave trem with the boost. The Analog Devices JFET AD711JN at the heart of the circuit is what gives the Supa-Trem ST-1 its warmth and clarity.Flexible Options to Dial in the Perfect Tremolo Sound
The large knobs let you set the Rate and Mix with your foot for on-the-fly adjustments. Plus, a red LED lets you see the speed at all times (even when the pedal is bypassed). This lets you adjust the trem speed before you need to come in with it, so you're always in sync with your bandmates. The Hard/Soft switch toggles between a gentle sine wave (Soft) or a square wave stutter (Hard). No matter how you have it set, the Supa-Trem ST-1 adds a classic trem flavor to your tone without signal degradation.
Long-lasting pots for reliability
Fulltone's custom-made brass-shaft pots are among the strongest and smoothest feeling pots available. These amazing pots are mounted to the interior PCB board via a proprietary "thru-PCB" method rather than having the pot be secured by the pot terminals, drastically reducing pot-related failure. This method keeps Fulltone pedals up and running for the duration of your playing days. Plus, this eliminates the need for a bunch of jumper wires, keeping your tone as pure as humanly possible.
The list of Fulltone fans reads like a who's who of guitar heroes. Both Ron Wood and Keith Richards have Fulltone gear in their touring rigs, as does Nigel Tufnel from the legendary British metal band Spinal Tap, and Boston bad-boys Joe Perry and Tom Hamilton. Punk/rockabilly mainstay Reverend Horton Heat is a Fulltone convert. Other notable Fulltone users include Pearl Jam's Stone Gossard, Jack Bruce of Cream, perennial alt rocker Lou Reed, and Tom Petty along with Heartbreaker Mike Campbell. And this just scratches the surface!Fulltone Supa-Trem ST-1 Tremolo Pedal Features:

Fulltone was founded in 1991 by session guitarist, composer, performer, and electronic tinkerer Michael Fuller. His pedals were born out of love for music and tone, as well as the frustration at the inconsistencies and the often fragile nature of vintage pedals. Fulltone pedals are 100% handmade in Southern California using the finest components, including custom-made 22-gauge copper wire with no tin coating, Fulltone-designed 3PDT switches, and custom-made brass shaft pots, mounted using Fulltone's proprietary "thru-PCB" method. The end result: Fulltone pedals are built to last and sound amazing.
