5 from 5 Another awesome kit.

First off, the pedal sounds amazing. It is extremely versatile, being able to dial in a huge range of different sounds.

The build for this was relatively simple. The board was a very easy build as it doesnt have a huge amount of components. I did struggle a bit with wiring up all the pots back to the board, there is a lot of wires and as I am very pedantic with neatness it took me quite to get it how I wanted it.

Another great pedal kit from musikding with nothing to fault. Highly recommend it.

5 from 5 Very Nice One

This is more than a vintage tremolo, you can really cut the sound very hard or do it smoothly like on a vintage amp. You can also change the mute spaces, ect.

Thanks Musikding!

Very nice tremolo build. As with all Musikding kits, the parts are high quality and come with clear labels (eg resistors) and great instructions.

Its really good. Easy to mount and very good sound, very clean. Im happy with my new stompbox I use it with my minibrute synth.

5 from 5 I almost bought a Voodoo Lab Tremolo and then I found Das Tremolo.

I am very happy with the sound of tremolo. To make it even more versatile I added a 3PDT switch to get two speed presets and independent LFO indicators for each of the speed settings + external gain control (which wasnt really necessary). The customer service at Musikding is second to none.
