StewMac Fan Tremolo Pedal Kit

About This Item

One tremolo to rule them all!
Build the world's most versatile tremolo pedal kit. From vintage to modern to crazy space sounds, there's nothing this trem pedal can't do.

We love all kinds of tremolo! Considered the first electric guitar effect, players for generations have enjoyed adding the subtle undulations and helicopter chop-like sounds to their tone. The problem is that most trem pedals just can't keep up with our creativity. Some only have a vintage vibe, while others are too modern. We needed something that had it all!

It's like getting three pedals in one!
When we discovered this unique tremolo circuit, we knew any player would want to build this all-in-one trem. The pedal has three trem styles: vintage 60s, heavier 70s, and modern digital. Each is infinitely tweakable with a rate (speed) and depth knob. One cool feature is a level knob, allowing you to use it as a boost.

Don't buy your next pedal—build it!
If you think building such a unique and versatile pedal sounds hard, don't worry. Our pedal kits don't just sound amazing, they're a blast to build too!

It's more than just a schematic
We include everything you need to build your new pedal:

  • Top quality components from resistors to switch
  • Road-worthy rugged metal enclosure with all holes pre-drilled
  • Bare or powder coated white finish
  • 3PDT breakout board for low noise
  • Input, output, and power jacks rear mounted for easy cable routing
  • True bypass switch
  • Custom printed labels
  • Easy! Download your instructions
    We've made these instructions ready to download now. You can zoom in on every solder joint and resistor value to make sure your build is perfect from start to finish. With these step-by-step instructions, full color illustrations, and complete wiring guide you'll build a pedal you'll enjoy for a lifetime. Be proud every time you step on the custom pedal that you built.

    Start making and modding pedals
    It's never been easier to have a fantastic sounding and looking pedal. We include labels for all of the knobs for a professional look. Paint your own raw metal enclosure or choose a powder coated enclosure that is ready to put on your board now.

    Take the first step to customize your sound.

    A must have pedal!

    The LED was a little tricky to install but otherwise this was the easiest kit to assemble out of the four i have made. It sounds amazing! Being able to switch between 3 different settings gives you what ever type of tremolo you need!

    Excellent Tremolo!

    Very fun build. What I like about the circuit is it's a 100% analog. No digital! Simply resistors, capacitors, diodes and transistors. Setting 2 is my favorite, but all 3 settings are interesting.

    I see people mean about the LED leads being too short, but this is an easy fix. Simply solder 2 new lead wires to the board and solder them to the LED leads instead of trying to reach the board directly.

    My eyes are almost 70, and I used a meter to check every resistor.
    Perhaps you could offer a discount on the meters you sell with a kit purchase.
    Anyhoo, the kit works perfectly, instructions were fine
    I agree about position of the led. There are stomp switch “toppers” that you put on the switch to increase the diameter ,good for those hard to reach pedals Or in stocking feet!
    The LED in this kit would be obscured , even as it is I do not like the placement
    I found it easier to lengthen the leads from the LED and solder From the top after everything was installed.. oh yes the paint in the prepainted case needed reaming to get the jacks in, very minor though.. overall am pleased.

    Termolo pedal is good, easy to build, but the case's LED hole is in the wrong place

    By

    This was a really fast and easy build, and the three tremolo types are certainly distinct. It sounds good, and the instructions are easy to follow. The layout of the board is really easy to follow, so it might be a good starter project too.

    That being said, the hole for the LED is just in the wrong place in the case - it just has to be a design/manufacturing error. The LED leads and the case hole don't match up at all. However, I don't mind a little challenge - if I wanted it easy I could have bought a pre-build commercial pedal.

    If I were to build another one, I would drill a new LED hole one inch higher from the start and just plug the old one or cover it up with a sticker or something. I ended up extending the LED legs using trimmed parts from other components and soldering it from the back of the pedal which worked, but is a little sketchy. If I did it again, I'd drill a new hole for it.

    Great pedal, save one glaring issue

    This was my third pedal kit, first with a PCB (which terrified me). Luckily the instructions were immaculate, I was able to solder everything correctly, and I've been playing around with the incredible sounds for days. Super happy with the end result.

    That said... there's one problem, and I hate to dog pile, but it's the LED leads. They're just plain old too short. No matter what I tried, I could not both install the LED into its eyelet AND solder its leads to the PCB. So now I've got a dead LED with its leads snipped off (so there's no hole in the case). End of the world? No. Kinda annoying? For sure.

    And I think the worst part is, I can see they've been getting complaints about the short LED leads since March and they haven't done anything to fix it (at least not by the time I bought mine, in mid-June). That's the most disappointing to me.

    So definitely get this pedal, it sounds excellent. But plan on not having a functional LED, or source an LED from elsewhere, because the one they provide ain't gonna work.

    Nice pedal but needs some improvements

    By


    This was my fourth pedal build and the first from a StewMac kit. As noted previously, the LED legs are too short and the 1/4" jack holes need to be enlarged a bit. Some of the nuts are metric and others are standard. The pedal didn't operate at first, but after receiving some feedback from StewMac's technician, I was able to get it going. I really appreciate the breakout board concept for the foot switch wiring. It's a really nice tremolo. I doubt I'll have any use for the #3 position on the toggle switch...it's odd.

    Fun to build Tremolo - kit needs a little work

    I purchased the Tremolo pedal and had fun making it. There were a few bumps in the road though. I would like to support another review that stated the LED was a problem to install due to short leads. It was a real pain putting it in. Also the holes in the enclosure for the 1/4" input/output jacks weren't large enough. I could not pass the jacks through them so I had to drill them out.
    I also have one other suggestion for us old guys :-) 1/8 watt resistor color codes are VERY difficult to read. Labeling them would be a big improvement. I measured each one with a multimeter before putting it on the board.
    All that aside the tremolo sounds great. I would do it again.

    I bought this pedal in order to get myself busy when there is no place to go and you have to spend almost all day long at home. The instructions are crystal clear and very easy to fallow. The idea of getting them on line is very helpful because it let you review the stages of construction before you start it. Another thing. The chart inccluded on the instruction booklet guides and helps you identify the right resistor every time. No more guessing. All in all very good pedal and a fantastic way to spend time at home doing something that you will be using on something you love. Making music. Tank you StewMac

    Great Kit but...

    Verified Buyer


    Not their fault, I try and do one of these kits every once in a while and I usually do not have the best results. I couldn't even get this one to power up. That said, it had accurate instructions, no missing or damaged parts and went together in textbook fashion. I probably fried the board by over-soldering.
