It depends on how much "tweekability" you want and if you want a bias type or optical trem. I've got a Strymon Flint and also a Line 6 M5 that are great but maybe more than you need. I've also got a very inexpensive Joyo trem pedal that actually works well for simple optical trem like you would get on most Fender amps. I've had it in the effects loop of a MAZ 18 and it sounded good. I wasn't overdriving the amp though so that kept the signal at a level the pedal could handle.
If price is not an issue I am really in love with what I've heard from Kingsley stuff. His Bard pedal has a luscious trem sound. I believe it is a bias type which is what is in my JAZ and the J-Lux. Also in my Princeton Reverb, which is unusual for a Fender . A bias trem is something you have to play through to appreciate. It responds to how hard you play.

The Demeter Tremulator is hard to beat for a combination of simplicity and authenticity. If you want a lot of tweakability it may not be for you. My musical and social development pretty much stopped in about 1969 so that's my frame of reference. It does that genre very well.
Never tried a Z-Plus, but it sits very nicely indeed in the loop of the Maz Jr. and Maz 8.
I am really happy with the Diamond Tremolo,lots of variety.I have owned and loved the T rex tremster,the big box made in Denmark version.Really simple and satisfying.Wish I hadn't sold it. Bad combination of GAS and FundSoLow,caused that one. To Clarify,these were/are into the front of a Therapy,not a loop.

Using the Supa Trem Jr for mine. Tried the Walrus Momentum first and didn’t like it. The SP Jr is a nice pedal and sounds great with the Plus IMO. However, I actually prefer to run my Trem and Strymon DIG delay (only pedals I use) in front of the amp. Sounds better to me then in the loop.
I have have a full tone supatrem version 1. Dave Baker uses a Seymour Duncan Shape Shifter in his Z-Plus demo. It sounds nice and has me curious as does Jam Pedals The Chill. Good luck in your hunt, let us know what you decide.

GuitarZ: So, I cranked up the privacy protection on my browsers, facebook, etc. I have to say I miss the music ads and such. I really don't need ads for watches and other random stuff. Maybe the internet knowing me isn't such a bad thing.

GuitarZ: Reminds me of buying my Honda. When they tried to sell me the maintenance package, I said "Is your car not reliable?" Long story short my wife teamed up with the sales lady to buy the maint package. Never again!
