      don't forget there's the Line 6 tone core Tremolo - it's basically a Boss PN2 with true bypass.

      i just hooked mine up in the stereo in/out pan pedal style, and it was great!

      good bargain surrogate for 100 beans.

        these are more popular cuz they're long since out of production... why? Something I've always wondered about roland... I went down there one day to see if they could fix mine and refused but gave me the schematic copy for free(in case I found someone who did.. and sure enuff).

        They're also popular because of the bands that used them back in the day: MBV, slowdive(according to gg), spiritualized, smash pumps, etc...

        BUT those bands used em cuz there werent any trem or pan pedals out at the time? Prolly didnt want to lift something like a fender twin or vox ac30 around just for trem(smiths how soon is now?).

        I don't notice any volume drop on mine whne the trem is activated(but hell, it is a trem... what is it supposed rise higher than yer norm volume?).

        There is a lil blip when bypassed i've noticed sometimes(not always) but if I activate a compressor.. it goes away. Also, w/ something like my zvex supa dupa boost kills the blip and raises the amount of strong trem(although uneeded).


        Lastly, slowdive used more reverb. delay, and chrous(jc-120?) on souvlaki than pn-2(if you can find trem).

              Disappointing, I haven't scored one after all... nice going Coda Music

              Ah nuts, why is there no such thing as a cheap pan pedal anyway? they've ben around ages, so it's not like they've got an excuse.

                dunno if this is a load of crap, but I read somewhere that you can get PN2 panning with a boss RV2 in stereo mode.

                is that true?

                    does it sound worthwhile at all?

                      I'm just puzzled why boss has been working backwards on various pedals, the TR-2 is basic compared to the PN-2, the same thing happened to the FZ-2 and FZ-3.
