Hey everyone. I've been looking a bunch of tremolo pedals lately.

I was wondering which is the best tremolo pedal out there. Some have told me that I should get a pedal that offers a tremolo sound similar to a vintage tube amp. Others have suggested for me to get the EHX Stereo Pulsar, the Seymore Duncan Shape Shifter, or the Empress Effects Tap Tremolo. But I don't think I need tap tempo.

Someone told me that the best tremolo pedals DO NOT feature tap tempo.

Specifically, I need a tremolo pedal that can generate the panning shuddering/throbbing sound heard in Green Day's "Boulevard Of Broken Dreams."

So which is the best tremolo pedal that can make that same sound? Any recommendations?

if you can, get your hands on a Boss Tremolo pedal, it took me months but i found one in a pawn shop and it was the best $40 i spent.
There are lots of other nice different tremolos - EHX Wiggler (more than just a trem), Red Witch Pentavocal Tremolo, Catalinbread Sephamore (am I spelling it right)?
But even an EHX Pulsar will give you that chopped sound.
