Bypass switch. Speed switch. Hard/soft switch. Rate knob. Volume knob. At face value this looks like a fairly boring pedal but innternally it's a real nice piece of work. True bypass too. From what I understand this is Fulltone's take on the old trem designed with some modern features.

UTILIZATION

First off, the true bypass works great. I haven't experienced any tone loss from this pedal and so I don't need to put it in my bypass looper. I would have to open it up to make sure but I'm almost positive this is an all analogue design except maybe the speed circuitry. My one big gripe with the supatrem is the fact that I constantly hit the knobs when I'm hitting the switches with my foot. They are way too loose not to move on accident and it kills me to say it but this may well be the reason I get rid of mine. It's inescapably annoing. The LED can also be very bright and that too is an issue during shows.

SOUND QUALITY

I use mine on a massive pedalboard that usually goes into some kind of single channel amp. Usually a plexi or AC30 variant. Sound wise this pedal is great. The soft hard feature is good to have because you can go from those crazy choppy trem sounds to the more subtle stuff. I hardly ever use the speed switch though. It's not really something that's realistically useful in a live situation I guess. You are better off moving the rate knob.

OVERALL OPINION

I wish it had tap tempo for this price, but sadly it doesn't. Maybe I have weird feet but the knob turning issue is a real deal breaker for an otherwise awesome pedal. In terms of sound quality, this might be the best trem I've ever used apart from maybe a couple $400 ones I have.
