    Does anybody know of an effective Univibe? With that 'thick' pulsing effect? Think of Robin Trower's sound. Thanks. :D

    Moen Shaky Jimi is a great, cheap univibe pedal

    Yeah, I am familiar with Moen and know that they don't cost an arm & a leg. Thanks for the info. :)

    Having had a few "fancier" univibes, like the Fultone - I ended up settling on and enjoying the MXR Univibe. It fit my board better and seemed fairly easy to dial in.

    I've tried a few over the years. My favorite, and the only one I kept is a Castledine Supravibe.

    A Phase 90 with the speed knob around 1-2 o'clock is also a great univibe sound. Man, I miss my Phase 90

    True. I DO use the phase 90 WAY more than the univibe. It's easier to dial in and it cuts better.

    Interesting. Good info. I'm a total MXR believer ever since the DYNA-COMP. heard the MXR Uni-Vibe & like it a lot. The Phase 90 is a legend. :D Thank you.

    Sure thing, man!! I'm there with you - my analog board is ALL MXR except for the TC Polytune. Great stuff, and easily replaceable when on the road!

    I had a Shaky Jimi for a long time and loved it! It did finally develop a tick I couldn't live with and began searching for a replacement. I was going to buy another Shaky Jimi. I really loved it and loved the price tag.

    Then, I ended up in a trade deal and unexpectedly received a Drybell Vibe Machine 2. Holy Cow! This thing is so luscious and vibey.... You can make yourself seasick in a heartbeat! (But, they are mighty expensive! I just lucked into mine. I never would have sought one due tot he price tag. But, now that I have it? Not sure what I'll do if it ever gets lost, stolen or breaks!

    that Vibe Machine sounds brilliant. I have been through a bunch of vibe pedals and currently have the FoxRox AquaVibe on my board. It is the best I have owned, but then have not played the Drybell....
