    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....

    The one on the Boss pw10 is supposed to be pretty good.

    The Vibe Machine has been on my board for years. It's definitely worth the price and highly recommended.

    What is the difference between the Drybell 1 and 2? Since it's a fairly expensive pedal, I want to get the best of the two. If there is a 'best'. I watched a YouTube demo of the Drybell Vibe 1 and the guy had the 'button' option and an expression pedal attached as well. So an expression pedal can be patched in? Thanks for your help :)
