The Boss TR-2 Tremolo pedal is an analog effect pedal. It has a 1/4 inch input and a 1/4 inch output and is powered by either a nine volt battery or a nine volt power supply. It is not rackable as it is a foot pedal.


The general configuration of the the TR-2 couldn't be any easier. It has three knobs - one for rate, one for choosing the wave type, either square wave or sawtooth, and one for depth. It is easy to get a quick tremolo sound that is both realistic and effective. The manual has all you would need to know about this pedal, but you shouldn't need it too much as the pedal is easy to operate.


The sound quality of the Boss TR-2 is quite good. It is realistic and the difference parameters makes for a versatile pedal. I have only used this pedal with guitar - usually a Fender Stratocaster and a Fender Hot Rod Deville. I also have a Fender Twin Reverb that has vibrato on it that is pretty similar to the sound this makes, and while I prefer the Twin Reverb tremolo, this comes pretty close. The tone is full and is overall a great emulation of a tremolo effect.


I've been using the Boss TR-2 Tremolo for about two years. I have found it to be a great tool when I want a tremolo effect, which is pretty often. I also have a Boss PN-2 and I switch off between the two as they have different tones. The TR-2 is a bit cleaner, but the PN-2 has more personality. The TR-2 has a very reasonable price tag and viable for guitar players on all levels. If you are interested in using tremolo either on stage or in the studio, the Boss TR-2 is a great all around choice.
