 Flamma FC16 Optical Tremolo

Like the other mini pedals by this newish Chinese builder, the Flamma FC16 Optical Tremolo is a bread and butter effect that does well what it promises at an incredible price. And, unlike most other Chinese pedals, in the mini field, it also looks great, thanks to a tasteful choice for the metal case’s color (Flamma excels at that) and the use of stylized modern fonts and graphics.

This release is part of a new wave of three pedals integrating the company’s Mini FC-Series.

Featuring depth, bias, and a large speed adjustment knob, the FC16’s simple design allows for quick customization and tone tweaking on the fly. The Bias knob makes the LFO wave choppier of smoother.

Flamma FC16 Optical Tremolo, Builder’s Notes

The FC16 Optical Tremolo brings a huge range of depth and speed in a compact, metal package. Featuring depth, bias, and a large speed adjustment knob, the FC16’s simple design allows for quick customization and tone tweaking on the fly. When you’re done, the true bypass circuit ensures a noise free environment until you’re ready for more of that classic optical tremolo sound.
