    Is it possible or is there already a pedal out there that has the same design? Any help would be great.
    Thanks,

    My Peavey Valverb does a nice job, but it's technically a rack unit with a footswitch.

    Great unit, though!

    The same as the internal tremolo found in a fender? I don't know if that's possible. I do have pedal recommendation though- the T-Rex Tremster. Man, it's a fantastic sounding tremolo, and there are alot of great sounding tremolo pedals out there. Great modulating boost too when the level is up. Not true bypass, but meh, Trex designs decent buffers.... I prefer it to the built in tremolo in my deluxe reverb.

    There's more than one Fender tremolo sound .. the Tremodillo is often cited as doing a good blackface Fender tremolo.

    If you're after one of the brownface styles of tremolo, I couldn't say where to look - most of my amps have tremolo so I don't get into using pedals much for it.

    Thanks for the help, I guess I should have specified but I'm more into the blackface type.

    Bruce Bennett made a limited run of trems based on the trem found in vintage Fender amps. I think he had one prototype left that he was selling over on Harmony Central. His user name there is also Bruce Bennett.

    Cusack modeled the Tap O'whirl off the Fender Trem's. I like it, and I think its pretty darn close.

    Of course, the Tap function is where it really earns its coin. :)

    I recently picked up a Bruce Bennett Pulastor XXX and I own a Demeter Tremulator. Both will do a decent job at the Blackface Fender Trem (reference amp is an early 65 BFDR). I prefer the Bennett due to the great "HAIR" knob (a really great drive feature). It really can hang in the mix.

    The Demeter is a worthy pedal, as well.

    The Swamp-thang clips sound impressive.
