My TR-2 has lived on my board since the the day I got it, it does everything I could ever want from a tremolo pedal (FTR it's the version with an internal trim pot). Apart from my TU-2, it's the pedal that I've had on my board the longest.

I really like the EHX Pulsar. Like the TR-2, but better IMO. I found it to be the most amp like of them all.

I mostly use the Vibrato on my Twin, pedal wise my favorite is the Boss PN-2

I have a Boss TR-2 which is great, as a lot of my predecessors stated!
Also I bought a EHX Wiggler, which is tube-powered and a great option (if you have enough space on your board for it, that thing is HUGE!)
On recordings however I try to use the built in Tremolo of my amps (69' Vox AC30 or 67' Twin Reverb Silverface).
If that isn't enough, the TR-2 always got me covered.

I've got a Keeley Verb-O-Trem. It is a good basic reverb and tremolo and has a nice volume knob, too.

I got one of those EHX Mod 11s, thinking I would use quite a few of the options like vibrato, chorus, rotary. But either I can't figure out how to work the pedal to get decent sounds, or I basically paid extra money for just a trem. The trem sound is fine, but I could have gotten than from a lot of $50 pedals, probably.

I haven’t read the whole thread (I know, I know) so apologies if it’s already been mentioned...

But for “cheap and cheerful” I have a weird soft spot for the old plastic RockTek Vibrator. It has a bizarre LFO envelope that I like (though it admittedly doesn’t sound much like the bias-vary tremolo on the O. Redding record mentioned in the OP)

I recently switched from a Caroline Parabola to a Mattoverse Tremstortion. It has more gain and a lot of delicious sawtooth and square-waveness available. Hard to come by, however. None on Reverb last I checked.

Matt is a great guy so can't hurt to send him an email. He seems to be really responsive to his customers.

The Mastro Valvola LFO is the coolest trem I've ever used. So many crazy cool sounds inside it. Total sonic playground.

I've also heard good things about the 4ms Tremulus Lune but I haven't tried one.
