Boss makes a great Tremolo pedal, the TR-2. But Keeley had some ideas of their own on how to solve a long-standing problem in almost every tremolo pedal”the dreaded volume drop. Keeley modified the effect pedal by upgrading the audio circuitry, improving the response, and reducing unwanted distortions and noise. The Keeley Modded Boss TR-2 trem pedal modification gives you a blend between the stock look and the boutique look. Using Boss parts, Keeley redesigned the depth control area to have a volume control, meaning you have final control in the output level. Stomp on the pedal for a nice volume boost during solos and drive your amp into a really cool, retro sound, or set it for an even volume level.
The Keeley TR-2 tremolo pedal acts as a volume boost, adjustable by the improved volume control knob. In addition to tackling this issue, Keeley took care of the noise and distortion. The last thing you want when you stomp on your tremolo pedal is for it to begin hissing and breathing before you've actually given it a signal. Using expensive audiophile parts, you get an upgraded audio signal and improved overall response, making the TR-2 a truly inspiring musical tremolo guitar pedal.

I had this pedal for quit a while before having to let it go for cash. The mod is a definite improvement over the stock pedal. This one is noiseless and has better frequency response, i.e. more bass and clarity. Gets the job done.
I love my TR-2. My tele thru an all tube Fender amp with the TR-2 is awesome. The volume control allows me to really get the tremelo effect thru the mix. It helps me when I have to carry a keyboard lick to get a more authentic sound. My only complaint at all is that it eats batteries. I use a Boss TU-2 tuner and I hardly ever have to replace the battery. I'm putting a new battery in this thing every gig. I'm gonna have to get a power supply for it. For the battery issue i give it only 4 stars.
The Keeley moded TR-2 is pretty noiseless and the added volume selector is very handy. You can use it as a booster for your solos with just a touch of tremolo, depending on how much you tweak the depth knob.
