Still, I am kind of S. I play a guitar with dual-humbuckers, through a watt 4×10 combo tube amp with EL84’s. I mentioned it a couple of times whenever I would see a post asking about tremlo’s but no one ever seemed interested. Tried out a Demeter, Diamond, and the Guyatone, and the Guyatone won by a landslide. The discussion thread on the is here! Feb 28, 2. The issue is almost certainly a lack of sufficient headroom at some point in the circuit most likely the input buffer.
I sold mine when it lost head-to-head with a Swamp Thang. If the first stage in the Tremolo pedal is tube and too much gain is passed on to a solid state stage the same symptom might be realized. I sent it back to Guyatone for repair and they sent a replacement unit. A is a good place to start. Yep- all the trem on Greg V’s album is the Flip. Feb 27, 1.
They are a but pricey!
Could it have something to do with my amp? I play a guitar with dual-humbuckers, through a watt 4×10 combo tube amp with EL84’s. Advertise on the most comprehensive and widely vinfage musicians’ website.

View the Media Kit. I wasn’t necessarily expecting it to as I would’ve expected a softer, more natural clipping if the tube was being overloaded. ROKYMar 1, I tried replacing the 12AX7 trfmolo a lower gain tube prior to looking deeper into the issue. It’s a very versatile trem that sounds great. The tube is used later in the circuit – the input buffer is solid state.
The distortion is most distinct when I am playing at low volumes. I purchased a used Guyatone Flip Tube Tremolo from a forumite a short while ago, and it sounds absolutely amazing Take out the 12ax7 and replace with a 12at 7. Yep- all the trem on Greg V’s album is the Flip.
I’ve got one for sale in the forum right now. I’d definitely look at one of these if I were hunting for a tremolo I don’t believe there is a fix for the symptom you’re experiencing. Still, I am kind of S. The discussion thread on the is here! I’m very surprised that no one mentioned this earlier. I just don’t use tremolo much anymore.
I discussed the issue with a local repair technician and we both came to the same conclusion. I sold it after I replaced my rack processor which had a decent tremlo built it.
Guyatone FLIP Vintage Tremolo
Mar 1, 7. I mentioned it a couple of times whenever I would see a post asking about tremlo’s but no one ever seemed interested. SFTMar 1, Mar 1, 6. Tremolo is warm and natural like a vintage Fender. Guyatone was willing to swap my TD-X but they never did acknowledge the problem.
