Vemuram Pedals

Vemuram Guitar Pedals Demo

This is the newest Demo Video with Tim Demonstrating The Vemuram Pedal Line. Vemuram Pedals is a Japanese Company that is 100% hand built. Tim shows current 4 Vemuram pedals – The Karen, Jan Ray, Neoplex and Rage e. Vemuram Karen This has Marshall written all over it. Really nice and tight overdrive, without all the compression. Very harmonically rich as you turn the gain up. Think 50 watt Plexi/JTM 45 sounds. Vemuram Jan Ray This is my personal favorite. It sounds and reacts like a turned up blackface Fender amp. More specifically, a Super Reverb. This is a superior drive pedal to pretty much anything I’ve stacked up against it. The bass response is so superb that even bass players are using this thing. Like the rest of its family remains articulate even at its highest gain. Vemuram Neoplex Super limited run of pedals to maybe 100. This has deadstock transistors from an EP3 Echoplex. It is probably the most formidable boost pedal I’ve ever played. Plug in and it sounds like an echoplex, just without the repeats. Vemuram Rage e This is a higher gain pedal. Marshall-esque with a little Bogner, perhaps? Still very articulate while being gainy – very musical, with a punch it up to the next level boost thrown in for good measure.
