    Anyone have some good suggestions for bass tremolo pedals? I really want something that will not drop my signal volume much, although with tremolo effects this is mostly inevitable. I want something capable of fast stuttering and slower natural-sounding trems. I've been thinking of getting the EHX Pulsar or the new Line 6 Tremolo; I'm also worried if the Pulsar could handle active bass signals fine (I heard that the bassballs doesnt like active signals)

    Oh and I love Boss pedals too, but I've heard soooooo much bad stuff about the Boss TR-2 its not even funny.

    Hah! oddly enough, the Danelectro "Tuna Melt" trem is the one i have laying around. Of course, I always have second thoughts on the quality of that thing.
