MXR Debuts New M305 Tremolo Pedal
The M305's six waveforms run the gamut of tremolo tones - from classic sounds to entirely new creations.
MXR has debuted its new M305 Tremolo pedal.
The M305 is anchored by six waveforms that run the gamut of tremolo tones - from classic sounds to all-new creations.
The six modes are: a recreation of MXR's famous M159 MXR Stereo Tremolo; an SQR mode that produces a choppy tremolo; an Opto setting that emulates smooth, photo cell-generated pulsating tremolos; a Bias mode with sounds modeled after the tremolo effects found on early '60s tube amps; a Revo mode that runs the tremolo waveform backwards for more pronounced sonic peaks and valleys; and a Harm mode that emulates the phase-esque tremolo found on vintage Supros and Magnatones.
Control-wise, the M305 features Speed, Gain and Depth knobs. The Gain knob can also be used as a push mode selector. The M305 also houses an additional jack on its side, which can be used as a tap tempo/expression output or - thanks to a small slider on the side of the pedal - a stereo output.
The MXR M305 Tremolo pedal is available now for $159.
