    Yes. Really difficult not to be heard through a Strat bridge pup (they really cut through the mex)

    That Pedal Show on youtube, those guys have collaborated
    on a trem pedal with JAM pedals might be worth checking out.
    I believe it is called the Harmonious Monk or something like that.

    I will look into it. The standard JAM Pedals tremolo is called "Chill".

    Yes, but the That Pedal Show one also does a Harmonic trem.
    The limited clips I have heard sound good, real good.

    Good on you. All the onboard trems I've had sounded terrible (tss-tss-tss-tss-), so I started trying trem pedals. Went through a few. Finally found one that sounds great and is easy to use.

    Worth the hunt!

    Reverb, a little distortion, & TREMOLO are really all I need (everything else is gravy).

    And I love me the tremolo from those old Gibson amps... my favorite.

    Tremolo is such a perfect mod. Effective without getting tedious. Congrats!

    Some tremolo, a healthy dose of reverb... and a large amount of musical bliss

    Yes, I was thinking about "born on the bayou" when I decided to add it in my board.

    This thread made me put on my CCR playlist.

    And here’s the one I’ve been using:
