  1. So...what's the best bass tremolo under $200? That means no empress, no diamond.

    If you can still snag one, the Guyatone VT-X is amazing on bass.

    I recently picked up a Dr Scientist Tremolessence v2 and really am enjoying learning it and all of its capabilities.

    Yeah I like the Guyatone VT-X too--a tad noisy, but great tone. Bear in mind that even the fancy boutique trems can be found for under $200; I bought a totally killer Robot Factory dual trem for $185 used. Consider the GigFX Chopper as well; those can be found on Ebay for $150 brand new.
  7. Just got an iron ether cygnet that is pretty cool. Bought it on the classifieds here for about $150 I believe. Nifty little pedal. I'm pretty sure they discontinued it though so you would have to buy used.

    I just picked up a Cygnet too ... Pretty awesome so far.
  9. Yeah, I saw that Cygnet on the classifieds. I was going to buy it---hesitated---and now I want to shoot myself for not snatching it up. If you don't want it, pm me :)
  10. IE Cygnet or Fuzzrocious Tremorslo.

    Yeah, I had one no too long ago. Sold it 'cause I didn't really use tremolo all that much.

    It was really good, I'm no authority on trems, but it's a solid little unit with limited flexibility and a good tone. Can often be found for cheap too. :smug:
  13. Demeter Tremulator. Classic trem sound.

    i bought a BOSS PN-2 recently after borrowing one from a friend. i've only used a couple of trem's before this so can't comment on most of those mentioned above, but the PN-2 is fantastic. Really choppy if you want, but also does very subtle. plus if you have two amps, the pan option is mental-fun!

    Demeter. You will love it.

    Perfect sound and function, easy to use, has that boutique look,
    I really like the colors and modular chassis, even the black coating feels great.

    I only have used the Demeter. It sounds great, classic tremolo. I sold it though, and will get one of his stereo trems. IMO, tremolo sounds better in stereo in order to get the most wobble oomph.
