After working on my tremolo project for a friend, I thought I would take a closer look at other trems out there. I wouldn’t mind making a few adjustments or work on another similar project, so it’s fun to see what’s possible. For today’s ‘research’ I thought I ‘d look at the MXR M159 Stereo Tremolo.
Here is the official description:
With its warm analog circuitry and lush tremolo sound, the Dunlop TS-1 set the standard for tremolo pedals for over a decade. The MXR M159 Tremolo Pedal keeps all the effects and controls of the original-but in a smaller, pedalboard-friendly size. Its 18-volt operation provides rich and vibrant sound with low noise due to its high headroom. With the versatile input/output options the M159 guitar pedal can produce hypnotic, pulsing mono tremolo through a single amp or ping-ponged from one amp to another in stereo mode for a huge, spacious tone.
Of course I found a great video by jimdunlopusa. They usually have great descriptive demos of their pedals.
You can pick up the MXR M159 Stereo Tremolo for $169.99 at Musician’s Friend.

Interseting that youre talking tremelo today. I’ve been playing with the Malekko Trem and really dig it. I’m not sure I’ll ever replace the Vibrolux sound from my old Fender but it’s a great little pedal for the $$Reply
