    i am looking for a tremelo pedal with speed control as an expression form.....am i just lookin for a leslie sim with said feature? or is there a trem out there like this.....
  2. well, Zvex has a seek trem, which is obscenely expensive, but it can do it, also a lot of multiFX units have an assignable expression pedal as well :)
    and there is also the third hand!
  3. expression pedal control? On the seek trem? You sure?!

    I modified a Boss PN-2 and an expression pedal to do this.

    Line 6 MM4 accepts an exp pedal and gives you three different trems (and two leslie sims).

    True bypass, great sound.

    Could you clarify this a little? Do you mean you want to use an expression pedal (like a wah or vol pedal style) to control the rate of a tremolo? Because of course all tremolos have a speed control knob. :meh:

    If that's the case, the knobs on the SupaTrem are big enough to move with your foot


    ...if you have decent balance.

    You could always use the TIP 3rd Hand to control the rate. No pedal mod required.


    Or, you could go with the Cusack Tap-A-Whirl, analog tremolo with tap tempo.

  11. I just picked up one of these http://www.guitareffectspedals.com/gig-fx.html its got an in-built expression pedal, interesting pedal haven't had a chance to play with it properly yet but intial tinkering bring up some good results.
