MXR reissues TS-1 Tremolo

MXR is about to reissue the Dunlop TS-1, the classic tremolo pedal in form of the new M-159. Those of you familiar w/ TS-1 will remember that it was quite big and chunky. It was, and still is no space saver, that’s for sure. The reissue model is now smaller in size, but supposedly still massive in terms of sonic scope. I’m sure I can see this one on the pedalboards of every analog purist out there; I mean, come on- who doesn’t love MXR? This is another pedal I plan on trying out very soon. Its 18V operation means it’s going to cost you two outputs on you power supply, but I’m sure we can all make it work.

Here’s some more info:

With its warm analog circuitry and lush tremolo sound, the Dunlop TS-1 set the standard for tremolo pedals for over a decade. The MXR M159 Tremolo keeps all the effects and controls of the original but in a smaller, pedalboard-friendly size. Its 18-volt operation provides rich and vibrant sound with low noise due to its high headroom. With the versatile input/output options the M-159 can produce hypnotic, pulsing mono tremolo through a single amp or ping-ponged from one amp to another in stereo mode for a huge, spacious tone.
