    Monster Effects Swamp Thang. Made to simulate bias-wiggle trem like the PR. Does a pretty good job, too.

    Mr. Black Deluxe Plus seems to be based on that blackface type sound...

    Fender Tre-Verb ended my long search for a reverb and tremolo pedal that sounds as good as a BF Fender amp.

    Man, that's a fabulous sounding pedal, going by some youTube vids.:cool:
    the only downside is the fee of admission. imo.

    The Deluxe has OPTO reverb, not Bias-Vary... just to be clear.

    For PRRI Bias-Vary trem, technically, any tremolo pedal that has a "Bias" setting (like the Strymon or Fender above) should do it. But I went on this quest for years, several years ago, and the Monster Effects Swamp Thang nails it. You'd probably have to find a used one tho.

    I think Swart should make a Reverb+Tremolo unit... like the fender reverb tank, but with tremolo added... Swart's reverb and especially tremolo are awesome. A Swart amp is in my future.

    On a serious note, i just got a used one of these for around $40.00 and it is a very sweet little basic tremolo. It really sounds like a old amp trem to me.

    The soft setting is supposed be based on a Dano amp and does that bias throb and you can adjust the intensity, the hard setting is different but cool and has a pre-set level so only the speed can be adjusted.
    Another good basic trem is the Red Witch Eve.

    I don’t like to spend more than $100 used for a single effect. I got the Tre-Verb for $180 mint, which is really fair for two very high quality effects (really 6 cuz you get 3 versions of each).

    Going to try Supro 1310 today. As I stated before I am not a pedal guy. The tube reverb on my Atomic Jr. is really great, Supro is coming today. Probably just Covid boredom. Played some great sounding licks this am, but I am looking forward to Supro. I like the raw sound of the amp and the Supro. And my tele is my only electric since its all I want to play.
