Tremolo that does the leslie/chorus/vibe thing as well?

    I was really liking the pigtronix tremvolope—but its massive and doesn't do any swirling.

    Any recommendations on a quality tremolo that does vibe modes?

    I'm also open to getting a very basic tremolo and adding a vibe/leslie/chorus pedal later. Looking for recommendations there.

    Budget isn't a huge concern but as I won't use this pedal often, I don't need to go crazy (yes, i'd love the lovetone wobulator but don't have the space money or need). Maybe in the $100-250 range

    Probably larger and more expensive than you're wanting, but the Roger Mayer VooDoo Vibe is an incredible sounding unit IMO. Trem, Vibe, and Vibrato sounds - all killer.

    The Diamond Vibrato pedal doesn't get much talk around here, but with an exp pedal hooked up, to control the speed, you can get some real nice doppler, leslie type sounds.

    This thing can also do some pretty crazy pitch shifting modulation.
    It's one of my most fun pedals.

    RedWitch Deluxe Moon Phaser can do tremolo, phase, univibe-ish, and pitch vibrato tones (plug a dummy plug in the clean out jack). I'd love to hear some other suggestions to b/c I've been looking for a good trem/vibrato/phase pedal in a simple format myself.

    An EHX Wiggler would come very close.

    A used Jack Deville Mod Zero would fit the bill and more!

    Mod zero doesn't do trem unfortunately. Great sounds but hard to dial in and switch between sounds. Wiggler is great too but huge and has a dedicated power supply which can be a pain.

    I beg to differ. It does do trem. Heres a link to an article about its functions: http://m.premierguitar.com/Magazine...eville_Electronics_Mod_Zero_Pedal_Review.aspx

    I'd send you to the Jack Deville site, but it's currently down.

    I had the Hardwire, it suffers from the lack of a volume knob. Apart from that it has some good tones in it.

    The word tremolo doesn't appear in that article at all. More importantly I had the mod zero and it does not do tremolo. Flange vibe chorus yes, trem no. Great pedal though.

    Wiggler is your best bet. But beware of the infamous EHX noise issues (many of these units hum).

    Subdecay Prometheus can't do REAL tremolo, but it can get close, plus it can do a lot of other things from LFO modulation to wah ...

    Again, perhaps it does not, but the article and the website say it does. You must have missed the text about it. :dunno

    "Two footswitches enable you to move from chorus, vibrato, and tremolo on one side, to flanging, Through-Zero Flanging, or Leslie settings on the other."
