      I use one to simulate B3 tones (Arion SCH-1).

        I was thinking the same thing as Ren, but per Scofield's website it doesn't look like he has one in pedal form:

        Guitars

        1981 Ibanez AS-200 -- PRIMARY AXE FOR NEARLY 20 YEARS
        plus an assortment of Takamine acoustics and an old Martin

        Amps

        VOX AC30 or MESA BOOGIE MARK I reissue

        Effects

        Pro Co Sound RAT Distortion pedal
        Ibanez Analog Chorus Pedal (purple)
        Boss EQ pedal
        DIGITECH Whammy/Wah
        Boomerang Phrase Sampler
        Boss Loop Station
        Tuner
        Green Line 6 (delay)
        Purple Line 6 (filter)
        Expression pedal for Line 6 pedals
        Micro Synth

          Not that i've seen. I did a quick googling of players I thought would use Vibrato, but i've not found any. Although I don't really listen to the more avant players very much, so I don't know. I would imagine that vibrato is more common with that style.

          To the best of my knowledge, Sco has never used a Vib - just heavy depth chorus.

            There's a few jazzers who get in that Scofield ballpark, though as JDE says, it's likely an extreme chorus setting: Scofield, Jesse van Ruller (when he's playing a 335), Vic Juris. The only player who springs to mind as openly using a vibrato pedal is Nels Cline.

              Bill Frisell has used one more likely than not in his career. His DL4 chorused tones on Good Dog, Happy Man shows he knows how to use the effect at the very least.

                  I mean I use an Arion SCH-1 to simulate Hammond B3-style vibrato sounds. Was that not clear in the first post? lol

                    I have no idea why that kind of modulation seems to be so common in jazz (despite me not knowing anyone who actually uses a Vib, blorl). My old bassist, who had about 30 years on the gigging circuit, used to hate it as it just makes listening while soloing much harder than it really needs to be - his only thoughts on jamming ever was try not to use too much modulation while comping.

                      That's his Ibanez Chorus. Charlie Hunter used some BYOC effect to get a very organ-esque tone, probably their Vibrato.

                          Abercrombie is all about the chorus, which comes from an old Boss SE50 1/2 rack box.

                          Seem to remember Charlie Hunter using the Hughes & Kettner Rotosphere for Leslie sounds.


                          See 7:41 for how some very subtle modulation can be used.

                            Nels Cline uses the Boss VB-2 a lot. Like A LOT A LOT.

                              this guy, and I have the pedal too and its a pretty damn versatile pedal

                              and the vb-2 is worth every penny.
