    ...no modulation.

    It had to be said. ;)

    If chorus counts, that's my vote.

    On a forum that's seemingly populated mostly by traditionalists who despise anything but a clean boost, yes, it did have to be said.

    Meh. Tremolo is still viable even with the "Straight-into-the-amp" purists.

    In order of preference for me:
    Tape Echo sim with actual pitch modulation. (Echoplex sim on the Alter Egox4 in stereo!! for example)
    Chorus on echo trails only really dig this one through the live rig!
    Leslie (Stereo)
    Harmonic Tremolo (Stereo/Mono)
    UniVibe (Stereo)
    Chorus (Stereo)

    All others I have not warmed up to...

    The correct answer is tremolo. ;)

    If modulation implies pitch changing, then tremolo and phaser aren't strictly modulation effects.

    But yeah, tremolo.

    I like a long slow phaser.

    For me, Moog MF-103 set to 12 stage phasing, very slow setting, and 'stereo' out. Sounds massive. I also throw some delay on it, and send one side of the signal through a miniature Leslie-type cabinet. It sounds really sexy.

    BF-2 or CE-2. They work great every gig. Flange and Chorus do it all for me. Never ever used tremolo, but I'm always willing to try new things.

    You are describing "Pan" modulation, not straightforward mono "tremolo", right?
