NAMM 2018: Ernie Ball Reveal Expression Tremolo + 40th Anniversary VP

Ernie Ball has unveiled two fantastic-looking new pedals; the Expression Tremolo and the 40th Anniversary VP Pedal. Here’s Ernie Ball with the full story…

Sleek, compact design maximizes playability, while minimizing the footprint on your pedal board. Unlock a virtually limitless tonal palette that simply can’t be matched by traditional “on/off” stompboxes. Sealed aircraft aluminum chassis offers a mechanically and electrically superior experience by protecting internal components from outside elements.

Expression Tremolo key features

  • 5 different tremolo waveforms: Slow Rise, Slow Fall, Sine, Square, Harmonic
  • Control depth, rate, or both simultaneously with treadle
  • Spring reverb level adjustment (foot gesture controlled)
  • Mono Input/Mono Output
  • 9V Input (power supply not included)

Since its introduction in 1977, the Ernie Ball Volume Pedal has been the leading choice for musicians across the globe. The Ernie Ball 40th Anniversary VP pedal features a limited edition slate black aluminium chassis with updated graphics for a sleek appearance both on and off stage.

A redesigned ultra durable Kevlar® cord improves potentiometer traction for precise volume control and a super smooth foot sweep. Inspired by the rugged design of the original, the pedal’s compact extruded aluminium housing is virtually indestructible.
