hi, ive started my collection of guitar pedals. so far I have a original cry baby and the newest boss delay pedal.
next on my list is a whammy pedal. the other pedal I cant find anywhere. im looking for something that changes the volume from zero to normal in kind of a skipping motion. I would also like it to speed up and slow down by using the foot pedal like the whammy pedal is designed..
I appreciate any help

There are volume pedals that work like the volume knob on your guitar; some use it for muting, others to scroll back the gain to get a crunch sound and others create fade in/out effects with it...

Perhaps you mean a tremolo? A lot of older amps have this and I am sure you can get a box to do it as well - I haven;t seen any that use a pedal for the speed though.

You can find quite a few different Tremelo Pedals. This is a cheap one from DANELECTRO!!

You can also achieve a similar effect with a 'Rotary Speaker' effect, which can be found on many Multi Effects units!!

You're probably thinking of a tremolo like the others said. If you can't find one which has a foot pedal or that works with a whammy, which I doubt you will, allow me to introduce a very cool piece of gear called the Third Hand, which is a expression pedal that can replace a knob on any pedal, basically allowing you to have expression pedal control over that parameter. I think a lot of cool things can be done with this pedal..

hmm that might be exactly what I would need. That and a Boss tr-2 tremolo pedal might work out.

Using tremolo and volume pedal together can produce the effect you need. You can also use volume on guitar if you can..

I thought you wanted something for adjusting the speed of the tremolo easily, am I right?

haha, i stumbled on that thing while browsing youtube. not exactly what im looking for but a good invention nonetheless.
I'm looking for more of a foot pedal that I can moved up and down to control the tremolo. but I think I may have found what ive been looking for thanks to JVM.

these two put together.
http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product...dal-?sku=150146

http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Bos...edal?sku=151381

I recently looked up the boss tremolo and some people are saying it drops the volume, does anyone own this pedal, if not any suggestions?

Wow that third hand thing is ingenious! Might have to get one.

EDIT: just read some reviews, and they're not quite so good, damn. Seems like such a good idea though, if they'd manufacture it decently.

well I've never used one, so can't say myself. But there are plenty of reviews out on the web, I was reading the user reviews at harmony central first. People just generally say that it worked great at first, but the belt mechanism inside it is really lame, and wears out quickly/slips a lot. It still might be good though, the only way to find out is to get one yourself. But I don't think it's worth the trouble, personally.

By the by, I have seen a pedal tremolo before, where the wah-like pedal adjusts the tremolo rate. Can't remember where, it might have been in the studio when another guitarist was in. But I definantly have seen one, so they do exist some-where out there...

Its probably like most pieces of gear, it actually works pretty well if you take care of it. Who knows though..

Very interesting looking pedals, checking them out smile.gif

They are quite expensive though.
