    Since tuning up my Champ, I've been using it more than ever. I don't miss having reverb but I do miss tremolo. I've been watching some demo videos and really dig the Solid Gold FX Stutter Lite, its got the harmonic trem thing that I dig, slow and swampy. A little more than I'd like to spend so I ask the question, what tremolo pedal do you use?

    BBE Tremor. Two separate speed settings on one pedal. It sounds very natural and "amp-like".

    i dig it.

    looking at the pedal board seems like lots are using the Fulltone dejavine.

    iv not looked in this effect as my amp has it.
    for all i know the pedal's sounds better. something to look into down the road i guess.

    however, if i was gonna try to find a pedal;id try to find one that sounded like the old magnavox's.
    can you even box that tone. i love how them old amps sound.

    TC Electronic Nova Modulator. It does Phase, Flange, Chorus, Tremelo and Vibrato and can do two effects at a time. I needeed something that didn't take up much space and would cover a lot of bases. I got it for less then a boutique tremelo pedal, so I'm happy. It's a bit fussy to tweak, but if you get out the manual and mess with it, you can achive good results.

    EH Wiggler, tube driven tremolo and vibrato, a bit of noise but lush no tone suck.

    Fulltone Supa Trem. I have probably tried out a dozen, and this one is the one for me.

    I'm not a tremolo connoisseur, but I use the Boss TR-2, and it does nail the "slow and swampy" sound that you describe for...$100 new...$50 used.

    Demeter Tremulator. And old 2 knobber. I think the newer ones have 3 knobs. It does the Fender Black Face trem thing pretty well. I bought it used in '95 and it still works great.

    Moog MF102 Ring Modulator and Moog Minifooger Tremolo.

    Hard to beat the Ring Modulator. + it gets millions of other sounds.

    Boss TR-2, but the tremolo sound I really like is on my Pathfinder 15R. Truth be told, I very rarely use tremolo. Unless it's dialled in just right, I find it an annoyance.
