Of all the retro effects to hit the shops in recent years, perhaps the most authentic and coolest is Tremelo. Instantly calling up the spirit of the '60s, Tremelo was the first effect to appear on a Marshall amp. Marshall have now updated the Tremelo effect in the form of the Vibratrem.
By using split phase modulation, a truely awesome stereo sound field can be created by connecting the VT-1 up to two amplifiers. The Vibratrem features a passive bypass for the main signal path to ensure complete tonal integrity and has a quality of tone matched only by its versatility.
Underrated, worth checking out.

I own a lot of pedals. 50+. As such, I have, and have had, lots of various effects, and a few tremolos. The Marshall Vibratrem is, I think, pretty underrated. Sure, it's not a "boutique" pedal, it's not expensive, it's made in China, it doesn't use the best quality switches, jacks, components, etc, and, the LED isn't too bright, and a bit small, and annoyingly placed. BUT, I think it sounds great. I don't use the vibrato setting at all. Nothing wrong with it, I just use something else for that. I have used it in the past, but a long time ago, but I don't recall anything bad about it. The tremolo side is very good though. You can set a very soft, gentle waving, or a full on, harsh, fast, on/off/on/off. No tap tempo, which may bother some people, but meh. You can also use the stereo output, therefore going to two amps, and you'll get tremolo out of one side, and vibrato out the other, which can be quite interesting. I've had one of these in my board for about 8 years. Never had any problems with it at all, love the sound. If you want something that can cover a lot of different tremolo sounds, and won't cost a fortune, it's worth a look. You could probably get a better pedal by spending more, but I've never found the need.
