JAM Pedals Harmonious Monk MKII: A Tremolo Revelation


Let's Play All Guitar presents another video demonstration featuring the JAM Pedals Harmonious Monk MKII, with a captivating claim of "Best Tremolo Pedal Yet?".

In this informative presentation, viewers will be guided through the intricacies of the JAM Pedals Harmonious Monk MKII by Matt at Let's Play All Guitar. Matt will delve into the pedal's controls and showcase the captivating tonal capabilities it offers.

The JAM Pedals Harmonious Monk MKII epitomises the marriage of harmonic tremolo and amplitude tremolo, further solidifying our affection for this unique effect. This exceptional tremolo pedal builds upon JAM Pedals' award winning collaboration with That Pedal Show, retaining the original's all analog circuitry and timeless tonal qualities while introducing new features to enhance its versatility for guitar, keys, and beyond.

A standout feature of the JAM Pedals Harmonious Monk MKII is its Tap & Ramp mode, allowing users to tap the tremolo tempo with the second switch and seamlessly transition to a second speed at a customised tempo. Additionally, the ramp between these two tremolo speeds is adjustable, giving you full control over the transition.

The JAM Pedals Harmonious Monk MKII now boasts three selectable LFO shapes (instead of two) in both Harmonic and Amplitude modes, providing a spectrum of modulation possibilities, from subtle, vintage inspired tremolos to avant garde staccato effects. The inclusion of sine wave, square wave, and reverse sawtooth LFOs allows for boundless creativity.

For users who prefer the classic sound of the JAM Pedals Harmonious Monk MKI, the pedal offers a Legacy mode, preserving the original character while offering an additional option for the rate of the second preset speed.

With depth and mix controls, you can precisely fine tune the intensity of the effect to seamlessly integrate it into your desired tone. Furthermore, internal trimmers for bass, midrange, and treble EQ adjustments on the affected signal provide additional customisation possibilities.

To optimise the JAM Pedals Harmonious Monk MKII in diverse environments beyond traditional guitar rigs, JAM Pedals has introduced an input gain control, enhancing its versatility.

The JAM Pedals Harmonious Monk MKII stands as an already incredible sonic tool, with Harmonious Monk MKII adding a layer of remarkable features to an already impressive palette.

In addition to this comprehensive overview, Matt also takes viewers on a musical journey, highlighting some of the best songs that make exceptional use of tremolo effects, including tracks by QOTSA, Beach Boys, Chris Cornell, Girl Idles, Silversun Pickups, Alanis Morissette, Wilco, REM, Audioslave, and Soundgarden.
