Bad Cat

For a period of nearly twenty years, on-board "tremolo" was eliminated from the basic amplifier front panel. To fill the void, a few "tremolo" effect pedals made their first appearance in the early nineties, the finest of which is still the Vintage Technology "BFD".

Most effect pedals drag your signal through a maze of op-amps and other active devices even when the effect is "off", creating an unnatural processed sound. Sonically patterned after the traditional "Black Face" tremolo, the BFD does not color your sound at all, but instead delivers the rich, luxurious, natural sound of your guitar whether the effect is on or off. The BFD is also virtually noisless and ideal as the last pedal in your lineup. The BFD is constructed within a rugged, cast frame housing for years of dependable service.
