The VHT Melo-Verb is a pedal recreation of the fabled tremolo and reverb
effects that were first introduced as built-in amplifier features in the
‘60s. The two effects sections are completely independent, with separate
The all-analog Tremolo section features classic Speed and Intensity
controls, and for additional flexibility, it also has modern Shape and Level
controls. The Shape control adjusts the tremolo character — everything from
retro floating undulations to modern square-cornered chop. When the Tremolo
is engaged, the Level control can be set for added boost to help the effect

section can also serve as a clean boost pedal, with up to 9dB of boost from
the Level control — it’s like getting a clean boost pedal for free.

reverb tone, and takes it one step further with the addition of Tone and Mix
controls, which were found on the most coveted outboard ‘60s reverb units.
The reverb tones range from soft, warm and round to bright splashy “tile

tones — together they’re an unbeatable value.
