    You can grab a Keeley Super Mod Workstation and get a box full of different modulation effects that all sound great.

    I like the trem on my AC15 but I also have a hand wired no name trem that really sounds good. having that option allows me to have more than one trem setting. I also love my TC Shaker which pretty much stays on all the time at a low and slow setting. I don't use chorus very often and when I do it's just barely on.

    Leaving out reverb and delay, which I always use, a chorus pedal is my go to modulation pedal of choice. Lately I have been using a Behringer Ulta Chorus UC 200. A delicate, but incredably good sounding pedal for less than $30

    Analogman Mini-Chorus with Mix knob is my most versatile pedal and is why it's on my modest gig board. The rest of my pedals are set-and-forget, but this baby has 3 very useful functions and are obtained by a quick turn of the Mix Knob.

    1. With mix knob set to max dry it still allows a smidge of chorus to come through. Perfect for simulating acoustic guitar, twelve-string, or a subtle doubling effect.
    2. Mix in Mid position is classic Small clone chorus sounds.
    3. Mix knob set to max wet gets a rich, deep, leslie-like effect.

    Bonus: With mix set to max wet or dry (which is where it's set mostly) I get a small volume and bass boost which is great for leads.

    My Keeley DynaTrem is the mod pedal I use the most these days. I really like it's versatility, especially it's Magnatone style tremolo. When not using trem I use its reverb feature.

    Flanger set to extreme jet whoosh.

    I use it to seque into changes or at the very end of a song, just to pick some ears up.

    I use a Line 6 HX Effects, so have access to a wide range of modulations. But it still hasn't replaced my Boss Super Chorus on my pedal board. That one's been the only constant on my pedal board for over 20 years.

    My favorite is the tube harmonic vibrato in my 61 Brownface Pro, but since you stipulated pedal I'm going with my Arion SCH-ZD Chorus. Next purchase: MXR M290 Phase 95.

    Boss TR-2 Trem. I’ve tried others but I like the simplicity of the TR-2. I use it on a few songs we cover and on an original at the very end of the song. It’s a very solid unit and always works.

    On a Tele? Gently bending the neck while I play.

    Also, amp trem from any of the amps I have with it built in, especially an early '60s Gibson GA8T. Boss TR-2 and Catalinbread Semaphore for pedal trems. Looking for a Sherlock Tremit, if anyone is sitting on one...

    Occasional Behringer Boss VB2 copy, Fairfield Circuitry Shallow Water, the modulation built into the DOD Rubberneck. Had a Strymon Lex for a minute, it was great.
