    SP comp/EP booster size.

    I typically use trem for fast helicopter tones, and something a bit slower, more amp like. Not really anything in between. Would love something warmer, not as much hi-fi. Anything come to mind?

    Thanks!

    the tremolo pedal from mooer is supposed to be good, can't remember what its supposed to be a clone of, but thought it was the demeter tremulator. If you can find them, the old lovepedal babyface trem was another good micro sized trem.

    The smallest tremolo pedal I'm aware of is the Dawner Prince Starla. Not quiet as small as an EP Boost, but close. For comparison, the EP is 1 3/8" x 3 1/2". The Starla is 2 1/4" x 4 1/2".

    Essentially an inch wider and a inch longer. Still small as far as Trem pedals go. And sounds terrific.

    I had the Trelicopter which definitely fits the description of what you're looking for. it's very amp like. check out the Malekko Trem as well.

    I don't know if it's any good, but the Hotone Skyline TREM is tiny.

    I really liked the Red Witch Eve Tremolo when I tried it. I linked to the second half of the demo video, as the first half is just talking about the wider seven sisters pedal range.

    Personally, I prefer amp trem, but I had a Guyatone VT3 for awhile that sounded very good. The only thing I didn't like about it was the noticeable boost when engaged, which I worked around by simply leaving the unit on all of the time and turning the knobs to 0 when I did not want trem. 50-60 bucks used.

    I absolutely love the Babyface trem. It's one of the best sounding tremolo pedals made at any size.

    This is what I was going to suggest.

    +1 to Babyface tremolo. Don't know if they still produce them though.

    The 'always on' Cusack might be good if you're using a switcher
    The tap tempo input would be useful for me

    I still have my Mooer Trelicopter. It has been bumped by a larger pedal for now, but I wouldn't hesitate to pull out the Mooer if needed. Very nice trem.

    KO Ten Cent Trem is great for classic tremolo sounds.

    Some REALLY great options I wasn't aware of! I'm a fan of the Mooer and Ten Cent so far, I'll give the Malekko a listen. That bias option is really neat on the Mooer, and the Ten Cent's wave sounds just about as perfect as it gets.

    Keep the suggestions coming! Thanks folks!

    +1 Lovepedal

    Sold my Mooer Trellicopter after buying the Babyface - it just has a deeper throb and richer tone (doubles as a really nice sparkly buffer/booster).
