Welcome to the guitar effects virtual museum. I have been collecting stompboxes for the past few years and wanted to share some thoughts. I will continually add more pics and opinions. Any comments or suggestions are appreciated. Thanks for looking.

Nobels TR-X Tremolo

What do you get when you cross a German-engineered design with a Korean-built pedal? A heck of a lot for your money to begin with. In 1990 Nobels manufacturing out of Germany started a budget-line of effects that were hand-built in Korea. Although not well-received initially the original series are commanding much higher prices these days. One that keeps showing up on every professional musician's pedalboard is the TR-X. A couple of other tremolos garner a certain cult-status but only one offers so many features at a fraction of the cost. With 4 choices of Sine or Square wave pulse and a 4 knob choice of speed, intensity, tone, and effect level what more could you want? Ok, how about an output for remote switching and a cheap plastic battery compartment for easy access? It's a quiet transparent tremolo with a broad range of speed and depths that would sound good in any Quentin Tarentino Film.

It's driving me crazy that no one has ever mentioned the internal trim pot on any threads that I have read. Am I only one that opens up his pedals?
