Cool Cat Vibe and Tremolo

I finally received my Cool Cat pedals I've been waiting for since April - the Vibe and the Tremolo. I have not played them enough for a full review, but so far I am liking them.

The Vibe is similar in sound to the old classic Chicken Salad, but it has different knobs. It also sounds much clearer. I love it!

The Cool Cat Vibe has an Intensity knob, a Speed knob and the very useful Mix knob. With the mix knob, you can blend the effect tone with the clean guitar tone as much or as little as you want. I love this feature. This way, you can get a lot of different sounds. Really fun pedal. You can make it sound Hendrixy or really trippy and far out.

The Cool Cat Tremolo is a nice tremolo pedal and it's already made itself a good home on my pedal board. It has a Depth and Speed knob, as well as a switch between hard and soft. The hard setting makes it very "hard" - a choppy, stuttering type of tremolo that is cool but I probably won't use it that often. The soft setting is more musical and warm, but who knows what I'll end up using. This pedal is just so fun to play with the knobs with!

Both these pedals are true by-pass and have a sturdy metal casing as well as quality jacks. I don't notice and bad tone sucking or messing up of the original guitar tone.

I highly recommend these Cool Cat pedals. I now have 4 of them, and I dig all of them a lot! They are cheap enough that most people can afford them. The do sound very good. 

I'll be back soon with more comments and of course videos.

Update: Here is a Cool Cat Vibe demo!
