I'm a huge fan of the Build Your Own Clone (BYOC) Tremolo. I've played for 15 years, worked in a major music store for 5, and played a lot of tremolo in pedals and amps. This is my favourite and the most tube like of any tremolo I've tried.
FWIW I go for CCR/Twin Peaks/Stax Records/James Bond sort of tremolo sounds. I find this one does it better than all comers.
I also really like the T-Rex as well. That's a hell of a pedal. I went BYOC because it was half the price and I wanted to build my own (it is offered prebuilt as well).
Cusack Tap-A-Whirl is the one on my board. Sounds awesome, super quiet, tap tempo, silent relay true-bypass switching, programmable options, ramp up/down ... etc. It's not as swampy and vintage sounding as some other ones but if you're looking for a versatile, awesome sounding trem with tons of options, Cusack is the one.
