Earthquaker Devices | Hummingbird | V4 | Repeat Percussion Pedal


Welcome to your new Hummingbird™ Repeat Percussion tremolo! The Hummingbird is a choppy, sawtooth tremolo modelled on the vintage “repeat percussion” unit and similar to those found in old Valco and Vox amplifiers. It is capable of producing everything from classic “50’s style” shimmering tremolo to a synthy, delay-like chop that turns your signal into a burst of short pings and on through to near ring modulation speeds.

Simply choosing between modes 1 (slow), 2 (mid-tempo) or 3 (fast) and adjusting the rate and depth controls will unlock a whole new world of amplitude modulation at your feet. The Rate is also expression pedal accessible to allow instant changes on the fly. Using an expression pedal opens up the possibility of true random amplitude modulation! In addition to the modulation, the Hummingbird has plenty of clean gain on-tap allowing you to either boost or cut the signal using the level control. If the Depth is turned to zero, the Hummingbird will become a JFET clean boost! The Hummingbird is all analog, true bypass and handmade one at a time on a gilded cloud in Akron, Ohio.

  • Compact tremolo unit based on trem units from vintage Valco and Vox amps
  • 3 selectable modes
  • Rate and depth controls to adujust the modulation
  • Rate can also be controlled via a foot pedal
  • Can also be used as a simple JFET booster, when Depth is set fully counter-clockwise
  • All analog
  • Flexi-Switch™ allows you to simultaneously use momentary and latching style switching
  • Switching is relay based, it requires power to pass signal
  • Uses standard 9 volt DC power supply with a 2.1mm negative centre barrel
  • Hand made in Akron, Ohio.
