    What's the best?
    I agree with a previous post,
    Tap tempo is a must, along with a variety of patterns and styles.
    Diamond tremolo works best for me... Tried to kick if off my board, but I'm old school ... Need to have the "swamp CCR" vibe happening.

    Would love to own one... but Young Pedals The Looker is awesome and anyone looking for a Trem should ummm... look into it... stereo, tap tempo and can pan...

    It's also nice to see John Phillips name in a thread... even if it's 8 years old...

    You guys should check out the Black CatĀ© Mini TremĀ®. It's got a good boost, great sound, and a speed switch.

    Simply amazing if a warm, 3D trem without bells & whistles is what you're after. Their website promises a new release that will incorporate tap tempo and a few other new features.

    I've had the Telenordia for years. It's beaten out all the hi profile contenders. For the reasons you mention it seems to become more a part of your amp rather than simply sitting on top.

    Where did you get THAT from !?!?!?

    Ive owned the following...

    Dr S Tremolessence
    Fulltone Supa Trem (twice)
    Mojo Hand Bayou
    Diamond Trem
    Suhr Jack Rabbit
    Red Witch Pent

    Nothing but nothing touches the Demeter Tremulator...

    Not all trems are good live actually... The DT is awesome. I think its the opto thingy
    In them that makes the difference.

    Personally, I rate the pentavocal trem by redwitch. Haven't used a whole heap of trems though

    Diamond tremolo is amazing, my favorite.

    I've had a few. The Semaphore sounds nice but isn't that versatile in a live setting, I think.

    I ended up with the Diamond trem, which has lots of usable sounds and is intuitive to use. Great pedal.

    Haven't tried too many but love my Rockett Josh Smith Dual Trem. Having two settings to switch between is invaluable live, simple to dial in and always sounds good.

    Just read this hole thread with much enjoyment. I'm looking for a great Fender tremolo sounding pedal.

    Which one would you go with?

    I've tried over a dozen trems I'm sure! I've even built bias vary tremolos into amps. I rebuilt a Super Reverb RI once and changed the roach trem to bias vary - sounded great (if I say so myself :))

    While I wasn't initially bowled over by it, I am really liking the Strymon Flint. I guess it does everything I need it to. The reverbs and tremolo aren't breath-taking or fancy but they are very musical and get the job done without any faults that I can find. Most pedals sound too compressed to me, or noisy, or the level seems to disappear when engaged. Or in the case of the Demeter it gets too loud. The Flint addresses all of the issues I have ever had with reverb and trem pedals, does both in one pedal and now that I seem to have the power issue sorted is a keeper.

    Funny - it's the only Strymon pedal I like!

    Does the Flint has an adjustable trem volume?

    I like the telenordia too, the germanium adds some nice grit.
