Tremolo thanks and update
OOh hey - foot-rocker-type control of the trem speed would be outstanding. I really appreciate the info on this issue guys. I'm really interested in Dave from Dialtone's new trem prototype and maybe if I send him a chassis he could build it into a rocker-foot pedal for me...who knows. I get more info just reading all your exchanges than 20 years of shots in the dark and trying every pedal down the pike!

You might also want to look at LERA - the Leslie Effect Rotor Adapter on GEO. This is designed to ramp a speed up and down like turning the motor in a leslie cabinet on and off.

Just a comment. H§ffner once made some foot-pedals. Ihave one at home, with 2 rocker-pedals on, one for swell and one for "effect".  
The pedal give 3 choices for "effect":  
1. Treble-boot volume  
2. Fuzz-intensity/volume  
3. Tromolo depth.  
On the side of the pedal is a pot with a large alu-knob on, which could easily be operated with the foot, this is the tremolo speed.  
The pedal is from the late 60. or early 70.  
Transistors: GERMANIUM, type Siemens AC151r.  
Regards Preben.
