Advice on new Tremolo Pedal

I've asked for advice on a few pedals before, and I have to say that I've been very happy with every pedal selection I've made from the advice from people on this forum, so thank you!

I am about to finish my pedalboard (for now) and want to pick up a tremolo pedal in the near future. I'm not a huge tremolo nut, but I am looking for something versatile that can cover any situation I might encounter with my cover band. We play anything from the 50's to current stuff depending on what or where we are playing. I also need something with a small footprint, something in a MXR box would be perfect.

I have been leaning torwards the JHS Honeycomb or the Mojo Hand FX bayou Trem. What would you recommend for a trem pedal to fit my need?

Best sounding trem with a small footprint out right now IMO is the Basic Audio Throbby



I tried it out with the tour box. if I didn't already have my diamond trem I'd buy the throbby in a second.

it's got a warm lush sound to it.

If you weren't tied to an MXR size, the Voodoo Lab 4-knob is a cool choice. Very versatile and with depth off, the level can be used as a clean boost.
It has top loaded jacks, so for $80 (used) it could be a contender.
Don't dismiss the Boss TR2.

there are some great choice that are about to flood this thread, I'm sure. Even the ones mentioned in the OP are great.

+1! I sold my unobtanium Toneczar Powerglide after I got the Throbby.

While you're looking, check out the Suhr Jack Rabbit.
Lots of waveform options, boost/level, quarter, eighth and triplet subdivisions, tap tempo (built in or remote), small footprint and it just plain sounds fantastic.

love my tr2, my voodoo lab 4 knob was great, my joyo trem was just as good sounding as those too. if I really had to cut space I'm sure the malekko would be just great too.

The Throbby is a killer trem. It killed off a Redwitch Pentavocal, Catalinbread Paredolia, ZVex Sonar and a Jauernig Luxury Trem.

If you want a good cheap small builder pedal look at smiletone trem brulee, still has his sale going on, $97 shipped. Figured for that price I'll give it whirl, very nice, pleased as peaches with this little Xmas present for myself.

If you want something very affordable, I have a JMK Tremolo that sounds great. I have a line on a Flint, so I will let the other go for a steal.

Because it needs to be brought up at least once in every tremolo thread: The Tr-2. It's a great starting point and can be had for a song.

Another TR-2 vote. Works great; sounds great. Versatile sounds, and they fixed the volume drop years ago.

I'm very happy with my Suhr Jack Rabbit. Small and very versatile. Sounds great to me.
