Quaverato Harmonic Tremolo Pedal combines many features to make a great sounding, versatile, and practical stompbox. Available as a DIY kit!
- Digitally controlled, all analog signal path combining maximum flexibility with great tone.
- Both Traditional (In-Phase) and Harmonic (Out-Of-Phase) Tremolo modes
- Up to 15dB of gain
- Modulates the high and low frequencies independently for dynamic swirling effects
- Extra internal controls allow for custom crossover frequency selection and individual HIGH and LOW signal path volume adjustment, for full tonal control
- Bypass footswitch can be used as either a toggle or momentary switch
PLUS ALL THE USUAL
- LFO wave shape, rate, depth and spacing (aka wave form shift or duty cycle)
- Tap Tempo footswitch and multiplier selection
- Relay controlled, true-bypass switching scheme
- Harmonic or Traditional tremolo
- Harmonic Mix allows the HIGH and LOW frequency bands to be modulated independently
- Adjustable harmonic crossover frequencies and individual volume controls for the HIGH and LOW signal paths for tonal control — the Quaverato can be adapted for use with guitar or bass
- Relay-controlled true-bypass switching
- Boost up to 15dB
- Tap time with multiplier: 4:1, 3:1, 2:1, 1.5:1, 1:1, .5:1

What You Will Need
- Digital multimeter
- #2 Philips screw driver
- Small flat-head screwdriver
- Needle nose pliers
- Wire strippers
- Small diagonal-cutting or flush-cutting pliers
- X-acto knife or hobby knife
- 8mm, 10mm, and 5/8” sockets and driver; in a pinch, pliers may work as well.
- Soldering iron (not a soldering gun, or a “cold heat” iron), good quality, 15-50 watt. An iron with a temperature control and a stand is best. Use a small or medium size tip, with conical or chisel shape.
- Solder sucker or solder braid (optional, but very handy if you have to remove or repair any components!).
- Damp sponge or dry solder-cleaning pad
- Clamp or vice to hold the printed circuit board while soldering (optional, but handy).
- Solder, 60/40 rosin core, small diameter
- Rubbing alcohol and cleaning rag
- Transparent tape or masking tape
