UK builder Pedal Pawn is one of the most buzzworthy new companies in that niche of manufacturers that could be called “classic refiners.” Their new tremolo Chicken Quiff is a faithful clone of the rare Cesar Diaz Texas Tremodillo, a legendary, discontinued pedal that sells used for around $1k USD.
There isn’t really much to say about this pedal other than “hear it!”
Hand-made and painted, it features two controls for Rate and Dwell (depth) and a second footswitch to accelerate the speed of the tremolo, Leslie-style.
Here are the demos videos of it.
The original Cesar Diaz Texas Tremodillo pedals have gained LEGENDARY status! Sadly they’re now unobtainable, though if found on the used market… they’re equipped with an outrageous price tag to match their prestige.
We’ve reverse engineered that lush tremolo magic & are now proud to present the – Pedal Pawn ® Chicken Quiff ™. Featuring the coolest looking chicken to ever exist, this dual speed design can accelerate you from a slow soulful pulse, to a fast 60’s shimmer – all at the tap of a button!
