Tremolux? Any others?
63 Vibroverb (RI or original)
My buddy has a Tone King. I'm not sure which one it is, but I want to say it's a Meteor II series. His amp is a 1x12 and I believe it is 40 watts. Oh, it's a channel switcher too. It has a killer trem on-board. Probably the best I have ever heard. He uses it so tastefully to which is a huge variable. You could have the nicest effect(s) on the planet but if you don't know how, when, and how much to use it, your tone can easily go south.
Early '60s guild amps have ulta-choppy tremelo. These amps were likely made for guild by ampeg, but they certainly have their own tremelo circuit--one of the squarest wave forms I've ever heard. Absolutely cool when that's what a song needs.
My mid '60's Valco has the choppiest trem I've ever heard. Pick attack? What pick attack?
My old Ampeg Gemini VI had a square wave option when you clicked the tremelo knob to "11" - real choppy!
Big +1 I have a Meteor II 2x12 combo. Everytime I think about selling it I realize how much I'd miss it the trem. Killer blackface tones and reverb also.
cool stuff guys...keep em coming!
Agreed: Ampegs. Some of the old '60s models (Gemini (1? &) 2, Reverb-e-Rocket 2, for sure) that have a click when turned all the way up; they become just about "binary" (on/off). It's total chop.
Silvertone 1336. Massive peaks and valleys to the trem.
the ampeg jet j12t has an really choppy trem
The trem on vintage Traynors is as choppy/strong as it gets and ever will.
