Fulltone Supa-Trem Model ST-1, the finest amp-style Tremolo pedal you
can buy since 1996, just got a whole lot better… It’s now also an
INCREDIBLE sounding clean boost!

For years people have been turning the ST-1’s MIX knob down all the
way, opening the pedal, and turning up its internal volume control to
maximum, and using the Supa-Trem as a very subtle clean boost. Now I’ve
put a low-profile VOLUME knob on the outside of the pedal, and increased
its available gain to around 15dB… allowing the ST-1 to pull double
duty as a stellar clean boost. One reason the Supa-Trem sounds so good
is that it uses a wonderful Analog Devices JFET AD711JN at the heart of
its circuit, giving you a warm yet clear tone when your pedal is turned
on.

The ST-1 also employs a custom-designed Fulltone Opto-1 photocell
with an extremely fast recovery time which no other manufacturer can
match. This makes it behave just like an old 1960’s American tube-amp,
but without the annoying ticking sounds that plague amps and other
tremolo pedals. The Supa-Trem is the most versatile tremolo on the
market, sporting True-Bypass with Blue ON/OFF L.E.D. and a Red RATE
L.E.D. showing your speed at all times (even when pedal is OFF) so you
can drop right into the song at the correct tempo.

With the ST-1’s large RATE and MIX knobs you can fine-tune on-the-fly
with your foot. The SPEED footswitch correctly halves or doubles your
tempo so you stay rhythmically-correct with the tempo of the song you’re
playing!

Finally, there’s a HARD/SOFT footswitch for choosing between SOFT
MODE (a rollicking sine-wave) or HARD MODE, which is more of a
square-wave machine-gun stutter. There’s an internal trimmer to
fine-tune the current reaching the Photocell to change feel of the
waveform, although we recommend leaving it where we set it so you have
the ability to turn down the MIX control and not hear any tremolo when
using as a clean boost.

If you like organic Tremolo tones there’s nothing that approaches the Fulltone Supa-Trem ST-1, Cool Trick! Turn the MIX knob full CCW, make sure
the HARD/SOFT switch is set to SOFT, and your pedal becomes an amazing
Clean Boost device when you turn it on… simply set the VOLUME knob to
how ever much kick you want. NOW, if you want to add tremolo, simply
step on the HARD/SOFT footswitch and you’ll have a normal sounding
sine-wave tremolo.
