What is the difference? Different intensity? Different wave shapes? Is one harmonic?
Oh, try Vibro Champ! It has the best trem ever.
I never dig optocoupler or digital trem pedals though, especially when used it in front of an amp. You need to use it after a preamp at least.
Tuna Melt trem slightly on, thickens your guitar sound. Dirt cheap and a small footprint.
One of the funnest, most effective places to use tremolo is during another instruments solo. Another is during a final verse... Tremolo is so good because it doesn’t over power the sound or tune. It leaves space while adding movement.
Just dive in! It works almost anywhere. You need to hear it in a musical context, a band, jam track etc..
Slow side; very light intensity. Think "Shimmer". Just thicken your sound a little.
Amps with tube/bias tremolo create a dynamic effect that gets out of the way of the attack and then blooms in intensity. Tremolo pedals don't.
I love tremolo, and I can't get into tremolo pedals.
I like the opposite.... high hellicopter thing
I use in just a couple of songs but is there.
1- Look for a tremolo pedal with volume pot
2- When playing a song, first try to syncronize the tremolo with the song ryhthm. IS really important
Brown is modeled after tweed, alternating highs and lows. Sort of a Leslie vibe. And the black is more off/on.

The choppy kind usually works best for me, but yeah, they have to fit your style and songs. And they probably won't work with most songs.
And some units I've tried and didn't like, thus returned.
Try the Walrus Audio Monument or Supro Harmonic Trem… they can be subtle and awesome.
Buy a Source Audio True Spring, it does Tremelo as well, but you also get the best Spring Reverb pedal ive heard... it does The Drip, most importantly...its also endlessly programmable if desired with an editor
Not cheap, but worth every penny
There's no life without tremolo (and delay),at least no life for ME...
If you’re on your own they don’t work well, I’d look at either a vibrato or a harmonic term which adds a similar feel but without the volume drop.
Tremolo pedals are magical... Use an analog trem with an analog delay pedal and you have pure 50s coolness at your fingertips the range of tones you can get out of just these two pedals together is extraordinary... Not just for dream like chords but you can get absolutely stinging lead riffs that sound classy and sophisticated... Use these great pedals sparingly... Never drown your sound with too much of a good thing..
Well first of all what style do you play ? They are some styles which makes great use of tremolo but maybe not all, Metal for example might not be a good candidate for it
I almost use it all the time in my Blues rock band
I like using a slower pulse with 50-60% depth into lots of reverb. Make sure the amp is loud! Tremolo sounds best when you can feel it. It’s moody and adds texture to the sound without changing your tone.
I recently bought a True Spring. As stylemessiah mentioned, it has a great drip like the old Fender tank. The tremolo is selectable between opto, bias and harmonic - very versatile!
I play anything. Mostly rock country and blues.
Nah, don't bother. Much more interesting is finding great settings from a Digital (or even an old Analogue) Delay pedal.
