No expression input on The Depths.I have my eye on that one. The whole univibe thing is crazy because perfection is based on a mythical past. It is easy for me to get sucked into the desire to own the "best" pedal.
The real question is use. Can I live with a fulltone. I did and I knew no better. I felt like I was hendrix/trower crossing a bridge under fire by machine guns.
Mike Hermans demo of The Depths make it desirable but I am not hearing the tone I want. I like The Depths a lot because it seems like you can do a lot of trippy stuff with it. It is high on my list because of that and if I found one used for a good price I would be very tempted.
The Fulltone sounds just a little mild and not as focused (clarity) as I would like. The good thing is there are a bunch of used ones floating around and the price is not crazy.
The effectrode is good but large and expensive.
If money was not important my first choice would be the Mayer. Yes, it is way too large but it has so many dials.
So far the best univibes (I have heard from demonstrations) have a clarity to them and a throb.
The best solution is to buy both The Depths and the Fulltone. (I just want to express, I do not belong here with you guys because my pedal purchase are never crazy).
I am getting another Mayer soon - the Aquavibe is nice but i miss the throb of the Mayer - nothing else i have tried comes that close. Yes it is big but remember you also get a badass tremolo as well - seriously one of, if not THE best photocell tremolos i have heard.
