Premier Guitar gemini VTR Release

The Gemini VTR

The Celestial Effects Gemini VTR (Vibrato, Tremolo and Reverb). The Gemini VTR is a true bypass pedal. It features three independent guitar effects housed in one space saving enclosure. Built like a tank and using the best components available, this pedal will keep you rocking for many years to come.

The first effect in the signal chain is a true pitch shifting vibrato effect which utilizes an optically coupled LFO (Low Frequency Oscillator) firing two phase shifting engines to produce warm vibrato effects based on but not limited to the vibrato features found on old Magnatone amplifiers. The controls include Depth, Speed and Duty Cycle adjustments as well as a Square Wave/Triangle "V" Wave switch. With the switch set to square wave, the vibrato has a more prominent shift in pitch. The vibrato effect becomes smoother with the switch set to triangle wave. Two internal trimpot adjustments are provided to set the amount of vibrato volume and vibrato tone. The adjustments are accessible by removing the bottom cover.

Next in the signal chain is a volume attenuating tremolo effect which utilizes an optically coupled LFO (Low Frequency Oscillator) as well.The controls include Depth, Speed and Duty Cycle adjustments. Two internal trimpot adjustments are provided to set the amount of tremolo volume and tremolo tone. The adjustments are accessible by removing the bottom cover.

Last in the signal chain is analog signal opamp based path/digital tank simulator designed reverb effect. The signal retains all the nuances of your playing and the reverb is lush, deep and plays nice with any other effect including boosts, overdrives, fuzzes and distortions. Two internal trimpot adjustments are provided to set the amount of reverb volume and reverb tone. The adjustments are accessible by removing the bottom cover.

Finish it all off with paralleled dual output jacks and your ready to add these three versatile effects to your rig!

Celestial Effects recommends the use of a HIGH QUALITY 9 VDC regulated power adapter with the Gemini VTR pedal like the Carl Martin Powerjack 9VDC power supply or similar. This power supply is capable of providing 1000 mA of power and is noise free. The more the capacity of the power supply, the less chance of noise and hum due to a power supply being pushed to its current capability limits.

All Celestial Effects pedals are hand built and individually tested in Hudson, MA by a company that cares about quality, durability and value and we back all our products with our stellar
5 YEAR WARRANTY.

USER TESTIMONIALS

"The Gemini VTR is an amazing pedal. It has become my favorite since I've been using it. I utilize the tremolo and vibrato in a lot of songs, and the reverb sounds like the old spring reverbs, as good as any out there. The Gemini VTR is just a great, versatile pedal that I would recommend to any and all guitar players out there!"
"Sean Chambers - The The Sean Chambers Band"


"After more than two years in research and development I have finally received the multi-effect pedal of my dreams....the Gemini VTR! Combining tremolo, reverb and pitch-changing vibrato itccan be used as a stand-alone mini-pedal board or added to your larger board. Having owned over 15 Magnatone amps of all types (stereo, mono) and many names (Titano, Panaramic etc), the brain-trust at Celestial Effects have nailed the Maggie sound in a bullet-proof package and now you can leave your rare Magnatone amplifier at home. If that was all this pedal did well that would be enough for me but no, they've added a great tremolo (sounding very much like a bias-modulated trem...think deep Ampeg or early Gibson amps) as well as the Belton digital reverb module! It comes stock with the medium module but I prefer the shorter reverb "tank". It is still lush enough for me to crank out some early 60's surf tunes! No more clanging spring reverb pans on bouncy stages. In addition to all of the above, the tremolo and vibrato have adjustments that can give you control over sounds that were never thought of "back in the day". Take the VTR along with your effect-less tweed amp to the gig and you'll no longer be envious of the boutique bells and whistles amp that the other guitarist brought with him!!"
"Chris Stovall Brown - Chris Stovall Brown Band"


"The Vibrato alone is worth the price of admission! I LOVE it! Several songs that I've used Trem on will now get the Vibrato treatment. "Sealed With A Kiss" (intro done Spaghetti Western Style), all the Link Wray stuff ("I'm Branded", "Jack the Ripper", "Rumble"), Dwayne Eddy-all sound WICKED through this box! Try it in stereo."
"Skip Baker - The Fabulous Woodies"


"The Gemini VTR feels and sounds like one of those classic vintage analog pedals, without the reliability issues. This CE masterpiece is perfect for players like myself who dislike reverb and tremolo circuits muddying up the pure tone of a good tube amp. This is a must-have for any tone purest!"
"Ryan Brooks Kelly - Ryan Brooks Kelly band"


"Ay! The Celestial Gemini VTR allows me to stimulate left and right brain simultaneously with excellent reverb and clean, tight tremelo...it has definitely earned a premier spot on our next record."
"Kyle Frederick - BoomTemple"


"The Gemini VTR is an absolute HIT at the Surfguitar 101 Convention. The players of "California Folk Music" (also known as Surf Guitar) love it! The tremolo section along with the reverb adds a new dimension in tone to the Santo and Johnny classic song "Sleepwalk" and it is great with "Crimson and Clover.""
"Lou Grein - VRox"


"You guys have done a great job on this! I recently bought a 1961 Panaramic amp which is a rebranded Magnatone 260A. Of all of the mono Magnatones the 260 is the creme de la creme and I've been using it in my live setup lately. It's got the killer vibrato which was the aim of the VTR vibrato section and I can A/B the VTR vs the Panaramic....they sound almost identical! Of late many guitar players asking about my equipment setup and I always let them hear the VTR vs the Maggie....They have all been impressed!"
"Chris Stovall Brown - Chris Stovall Brown Band"


"I received the Gemini VTR yesterday and it immediately blew me away! Super easy to use and a tweaker's dream at the same time. Drenched in sweet analog tones, the VTR sounds like a dream. Dom did an amazing job with this! !!Loving the Gemini VTR to death!! Thank you Celestial Effects!!"
"Robert Abernathy"
