    This is a great littel Tremolo pedal. Sounds decent, is quite versatile, easy to use, and the buffer is very good also. Boss has fixed the volume drop the older units had, and now has a trim pot on the circuit board that will allow the volume to be set to whatever volume desired. I prefer my Tremolo volume a little over unity so I adjusted mine. The features, sound, and price, make this an excellent value. Don't let the low price deter you because this little Trem pedal can hold it's own even against many higher priced units.

    I own a Fender Hot Rod delux amp. I wish it had a tremelo. I searched for a tremelo that could come as close as possible to the "Fender tremelo" sound. I was excited when I found this one. It's solid and you can change the wave shape, speed and intesity. It sounds great and it gets pretty close to the real Fender tremelo sound. I thought that my search was over. Sadly it wasn't. The only thing that I dislike about this pedal is the fact that it causes my volume to drop out when you turn it on. I thought I had it in the wrong order in my pedal line up. I switched it around, tried it by it's self. I tried fresh batteries and the Boss AC adaptor. Same result of volume loss. I've never abused this pedal and assume it's working correctly. I can't use it for gigs because of this problem. I replaced it with an EHX Wiggler. NOW my search is over. Check out the Wiggler before you buy this pedal. If you are a real tremelo fan. You'll be glad to wait and save up a few more pennies to buy the Wiggler.The next sound that will be comming from my Boss TR-2 is the sound of it hitting the bottom of the trash can.

            Comments about Boss TR-2 Tremolo Pedal:

            This is a simple pedal. It provides a very controllable tremolo (which I always called vibrato) that can be continuously dialed from a soft sine wave to a hard square wave. This gives you the versatility to play everything from old rock-n-roll to recent heavy metal.

              Comments about Boss TR-2 Tremolo Pedal:

              Great sound out of a little box that expect from a Boss pedal. The rate knob gives you a wide range of tempos to choose from. The pedal sounds professional. There is no noise and no perceived signal loss when engaging it. It's a Boss pedal so it's solid and the size makes it easy to fit on your board. There are other tremolo pedal options out there but for a basic tremolo pedal it delivers a lot for the relatively low cost. Lot more expensive options, but I still prefer this to all I've tried.

                    Currently performing in stage band for the musical, "Happy Days." Score calls for tremolo in several places, and it really adds to the fifties-era sound we're going for. And NO power drain, as reported in some other reviews. The TR-2 is one of the best of the 6 Boss pedals I've purchased.

                    Boss TR-2 Compares to my amp tremolo, more versatile

                    By PepeStrat

                    from New England

                    Comments about Boss TR-2 Tremolo Pedal:

                    In the final analysis, it beats my Peavey Delta Blues tremolo, which I think has a better vintage vibe than Deluxe Reverbs I've A/B'd. Both had volume drop, 2007+ TR-2s don't. Previously had a Danelectro Cool Cat Trem, which was good, but true bypass on/off had a very audible click. It also introduced a noticeable treble & volume boost. None of those issues w/the Boss. There a many boutique trems out there, w/more features & tweakability. The TR-2 covers all of the ground I'm looking for.
                    I'm mostly a vintage style trem guy, occasionally like a harder chop. This'll do it. Won't do the hardest of helicopter chops but that's OK. Covers the spectrum of useable (for me) speeds. NO volume drop (unlike my amp) and tonally transparent.
                    Standard Boss quality, which most folks agree, is long on durability.

                    Comments about Boss TR-2 Tremolo Pedal:

                    This pedal will be a key component of all you tones
                    2 Words.....buy it.
                    This is my favorite pedal.
                    I have owned it about 1 month now and it is awesome.
                    It stays on all the time.
                    Set this pedal to 10:00 on the depth at a fairly slow speed and leave it on all the time.

                    I gives a 3rd dimension to your tone.
                    Warning: There is no turning back after you use this pedal.

                    Comments about Boss TR-2 Tremolo Pedal:

                    This is a solid pedal and a great way to add tremolo to your amp if it does not already have it. The sound is solid and strong and does not wash out like my Marshall pedal does when chained in a pedal board. The adjustment range is fine and it does not seem to tone suck at all. Great value IMHO. Surf, 60's rock, go for it!
                    Only had it a few days.
                    Cheaper than buying a Vibrolux or the like.
