Yeah the ones you listed, vibrato/tremelo, phaser, and rotary (rotating speaker effect), would be the major ones next on the list of “mod” effects. Rock on!Hi, I'm looking at possibly adding another effect to my board.
I have chorus, flanger, delay, and reverb, and was wondering which other effect might go well on a straight ahead rock pedalboard.
The ones I'm thinking of are phaser, vibrato, or maybe a vibe or rotary type of effect.
Home player, still active musician in my church, but gigging days are long passed, so it will be a cheap Amazon type pedal because I don't need anything fancy. It won't get used a ton, just to add a bit of "extra" flavor when I'm jamming around the house.
Not looking for brand or specific pedals, just in general, what other modulation effect is most used.
Yes, there was a primordial ooze with the right amount of amino acids, there was the constant lightning of a newly formed atmosphere.… and tremolo was born!!,…. then all life, all of recorded history, blah, blah, blah,…Tremolo of course.
There's no life without tremolo.
Put a Zoom MS-70CDR on your board and take your pick of any modulation type you care to name.
I love phaser, but have found myself preferring harmonic trem in place of phase when doing lead lines. It is cleaner, less boomy and has some overlap with vibe to my ears, though I have never had a vibe pedal. I still love phaser for rhythm stuff or added parts. All I do is play and record at home, so take my opinion for what it is worth. I know harmonic tremolo is super trendy presently, so I understand any rolled eyes, but it is super cool. Mine is a WA Monument V1 that is wider and easier to stomp and tap, IMO. It does cut bottom end, no doubt, which bugs me at times, but when I listen back to mixes I have finagled, I understand why it is voiced that way. It always sounds dope. It would be nice to have some control over that, though. I also love my HAZ Labratories Mutron III+’s notch setting for similar yet more subtle effects of the same ilk. Keep in mind as well that the Monument also offers standard tremolo. It’s got a little switch that lets you choose between trem types. Great pedal.
