arrow Update V3 - Now Standard

The Bard V3 has exactly the same feature set as the Bard V2, but features the following improvements:

- output is now in phase with the input (V1 and V2 output was out of phase)
- more headroom before clipping
- smoother Depth pot taper
- quieter switching

arrow Update V2

The Bard (V2) now comes with a mini switch for selecting two speed ranges. The original Bard focused on the slow side in terms of tremolo speed. The newer version increases the available tremolo speed with this mini switch.

arrow Overview

The Bard’s bias modulating tube circuit provides classic, warm sine wave tremolo tones. The single Tungsol 12ax7 runs at high voltage for a full, rich and dynamic tube sound. The 9VDC power supply (provided) is converted to both 6.3VDC for the tube heaters and 275VDC for the tube plates.

arrow Features

With controls for volume, speed and depth it is very simple to set up great sounding tremolo. The volume control is a nice feature that ensures your sound does not get buried when the tremolo effect is activated. It can also provide a cut or very healthy boost.
