Flux : LIQUID TREMOLO Analog Tap Tempo Stereo Tremolo


It would be only 5 or 6 times in the 5 years that I’ve been making demo videos (about 1300 all up including the PGS stuff) that my wife has said something like, “Ooh, that’s nice” or “I like that one” or… Today was one of those days. Elisabeth even remarked on the Liquid Tremolo’s good looks – most unusual! I can tell you that around here, that is a VERY high compliment!

I had this rather classy Liquid Tremolo hooked up to two beautiful amps this afternoon and the stereo field was gorgeous. I must have sat here for a good two hours before I hit the record button, such was the fun I was having.

I could rant on about the merits of this masterwork by Michael Weavers but I think it’s probably best that the video’s sounds speak for themselves (hopefully!) I suggest that you also visit his Flux Effects site for much more comprehensive information than would be practical to try and convey here. Suffice to say, the Liquid Tremolo is a class act. It is a long-term purchase (and priced accordingly) and will in all likelihood remain in a buyer’s collection for years to come as a cherished musical utility.

Well done, Michael. Hello world.
