Vintage warmth or modern edge, the Pipeline Tap Tremolo has you covered. Offering both soft Vintage sine waves and solid Square blocks, the Pipeline delivers that iconic tremolo effect for any musical situation. In addition, you have 6 dBs of boost so you will never sound thin or deflated.
The footswitch is tap tempo-enabled for fast tempo adjustments and the Subdivision knob lets you splice the tempo into seven inspiring rhythmic accents.
And last but not least - it's TonePrint-enabled, giving you an endless array of possibilities in a little box that won't put a ding in your board.

Tap Tempo and Drop In
With tap tempo and a versatile subdivision knob, you have all of your rhythmic proclivities on board and easy to get. We loaded the tap function into the standard footswitch so it won't eat too much pedalboard space.
Just hold down the footswitch for two seconds, light turns green, and you can tap the tempo you want.
After that, use the Subdivision knob to give your tremolo the right rhythmic stutter, befitting the situation.
Trim the Surf with TonePrint
Using the mini toggle switch you can unlock a wealth of chilled-out TonePrints from our local tribe of tone surfers.
Using TonePrint Editor will fold out the Pipeline like a toolbox of tremolo.
For example, you can mix two different tremolo pulses for super gnarly and eccentric curve shapes.
Each pulse can have its own individual shape, speed and phase.
This makes it possible to emulate the classic light bulb based opto-tremolos, like the Shin Ei Univibe, with its "double dip"-shaped waves.
