I know Rock Fabrik best for their amazing Mind Abuse High Gain Distortion pedal - which is alas still on the wishlist awaiting acquisition - I have so many different priorities in the High Gain pedal area - it takes a while to get around all of them. It’s good to see RF branch out into new areas though - and this is their first modulation pedal as far as I am aware - and a really impressive entry into that category.
The vertical 1590BB style enclosure device is an Analog Tremolo and Vibrato circuit with Digital Control Surface and second tap-tempo footswitch along similar lines to Chase Bliss Audio etc. It has a significant number of controls which are what really define and differentiate the function of the pedal - that dynamic and variable speed sensitivity and playback.

Brett Kingman provides a superb demo as always. This is a gorgeous sounding Tremolo with great functionality - could do with presets though! It’s also a touch large for my own setup since I introduced the ThorpyFX Camoflange Flanger into my rig - I can really only fit in a compact size analog Tremolo - to rotate on same slot as my current CBA Gravitas. Acquiring this would mean significant re-jigging of the rig which makes it somewhat unlikely - but I’m still tempted!
The Kuek is open for pre-orders and retails for €179 currently. It comes in three different colour ways - Doves Blue as pictured, Ultra Marine Blue as per in Brett’s demo, and Bright Orange which I’ve yet to see any references for.
