FDP Forum / Fender Amps: 1985 - Current / 65 Reissue Twin with vibrato on

I am aware that with the vibrato on the signal goes through more circuits. I found with the intensity around 2-3 and slow vibrato it seems to smooth the sound of the guitar a little more than with it turned off. Anyone else notice this difference?

I do agree it takes some of the sharpness out of the tone. Something that has always bothered me is that it I would like the vibrato speed to be more linear so that I can get more control and slow it down. Even at 2 it seems too fast to me. I'd like it as slow as a Deja Vibe.

You make a good point, however this is what I like about this effect. It changes your tone so it provides another option. Let's face it, the tremolo is a cool effect but most of the time people don't use it. So with the intensity at 2-3 and a slower rate it can just add a subtle smoothness to the sound. Really nice, I like this a lot!
