  • Tremolo/Vibrato

    I'm looking for a good tremolo and a good vibrato, hopefully in the same unit. I want to keep it simple, and really only need rate, depth, and shape controls. What's out there for me at a reasonable price?

    Re: Tremolo/Vibrato

    I bought a TC Electronic Choka tremolo not too long ago and I quite like it, It's only 30 euro. But as for a vibrato I can't help you with that sorry.

      For Tremelo -the workhorse of the industry is the Boss TR2 -simple, powerful bulletproof and sounds great. and you can get them for 30-40 bucks used -unbeatable really.


      I use a Strymon Flint for the tap tempo -its more powerful and flexible than the Boss -but expensive and Harmonic Tremelo setting is absolutely magical. -plus you get a powerful reverb incase I use backline without reverb. Great but pricey pedal


      While TC Electronic generally makes great pedals -I think the Vibrato "Shaker" is pretty meh -it takes a lot to get a decent sound out of it

        Re: Tremolo/Vibrato

        What kind of vibrato are you looking for? What types of tones? A chorus with a mix that goes to 100% wet will give you vibrato. Also, a lot of Univibes have a vibrato mode. Listen to clips online because they are both vibratos but sound way different.

        For Tremolo, the Shape Shifter by Duncan is great, I really like mine. The Strymon offerings are of course nice but premium priced. Has anyone tried the TC Pipeline?
        Oh no.....


        Oh Yeah!

          I had a Behringer Tremelo once, which was fine.

            I've been looking at the Behringer UV300 Ultra Vibrato and UT300 Ultra Tremolo units. They don't color the sound right? All I'm really looking for is a decent unit, but just for my own knowledge, what are the differences in vibrato/tremolo units to look out for?

                ive been using the boss one for a number of years. Sounds just as good as the trem on my vintage amps.

                  The Shape Shifter gives you lots of control over the tremolo, from rise times, to tap tempo, to haveing the effect bounce around in the stereo spectrum. It isn't just simply an on/off-type tremolo, as you can add sort of a swirly phase thing going on, too.

                      What does TS mean? I notice you’ve used it now and again in some of your posts.

                          I had to look it up. It was like #50-something on a list of the 200 most common TS acronyms. 'Round these parts it means Tubescreamer.

                            Marshall made a tremolo pedal that also does vibrato. I forget what it’s called but it was part of that series of silver/gold pedals they had out a few years ago. I have one that I got for dirt cheap from the bargain bin at a local music store.
