Looking for a good Tremolo pedal that can do both vintage and modern. I need to be able to reproduce 50's, 60's, and Greenday. Suggestions?

Thanks in advance

I'm going to say it: Boss TR-2. Stock, it's a friggin' awesome pedal. With the Keeley Mod, I'm sure it only gets better. It does the vintage stuff really well, and I was being stupid the other night and dialed in a close Green Day sound.

I always thought the Fulltone Supa Trem was a very transparent pedal. It has the ability to do some pretty wacked out trem and has a double-frequency option.

At the time I bought that pedal, I did an extensive shootout with the Frantone Vibutron and felt that the Fulltone came out the winner in terms of transparency and overall sound quality.

I have the Tremolessence now. I haven't had much time to play with it, but I like it so far.

I'm a big fan of the Cusack Tap A Whirl, it rules.

Do some searchs on the gear page.

The T Rex Trem pedal really did it for me. Well thought out and it sounds great. I'm picky about tremelo and I tried just about everything out there. But -- I have not tried those pedals built in the last two years.

I don't see too much about the Diaz Tremadillo, but have heard it's a great pedal.

The TR2 w/Keeley mod is great, the volume drop issue is solved and it is very vintage sounding. The Keeley is my second favorite trem. The Frantone Vibutron is still my favorite.

Save time and hassle and buy an Empress Tremolo. It's a little high but well worth it. I bought one based only on online reviews and have never looked back.

+1 on the Empress Tremelo. My roommate had one for a while, and it really is the most pristine sounding tremolo i've ever heard. I've heard good things about the Fulltone SupaTrem too...
