    I recently acquired an EQD Hummingbir tremelo. It's my first tremelo. I'm really digging the "repeat percussion" rythmes it can produce, and I mostly use it as follows: octaver > fuzz > envelope filter > Hummingbird.
    I can get some very Moogish grooves going, but it doesn't have tap tempo. I can change the rate with an expression pedal but it is not practical to synch with tempo using this method.

    Can anyone recommend a similar tremelo that has tap tempo?

  3. Although I don't have experience with it, Empress has a Tremolo with tap tempo.

    I have owned Empress. It is OK, but not so great as i wished it would be. Now i have Mobius, it is good but i would like to try Diamond. I believe it could be my weapon of choice.

    The EHX Super Pulsar has tap tempo and expression control (which you can set for any of 5 parameters, not just rate). I honestly don't know if this pedal lacks anything needed for tremolo and changed my playing.

    Malekko Sneak Attack is a fantastic tremolo, fully adjustable and tap tempo capable with an outside foot switch. You can adjust the shape in detail to get a heavy chop or a gentle throb. Plus you get an auto envelope.
