Summary:

drybell-vibe-machine-v-2-review-best-uni-vibe-pedal-01

We previously featured the original DryBell Vibe Machine V-1 and sung its praises for being arguably the best sounding compact “Uni-Vibe” style pedal available in recent years. But DryBell weren’t satisfied with how close they already were to vibe perfection, and thus, the Vibe Machine V-2 was born from DryBell’s desire to re-create the ultimate Vibe Machine.

Features:

  • Faithful “Uni-Vibe” circuit in a regular sized enclosure
  • ‘Intensity’ control
  • ‘Speed’ control
  • ‘Vibrato/Chorus’ switch
  • ‘Custom/Bright/Original’ (input buffer) switch
  • Expression pedal & Foot-switch input
  • Foot-switch accessed Tap Tempo, Cancel, & Leslie Fast/Slow modes
  • 9-16 volts DC operation (regular center negative boss style adapter only, no battery)
  • External trimmers for ‘Volume’, ‘Range’, ‘Grit’, ‘Chorus’, & ‘Symmetry’
  • True Bypass
  • Multi-Colored Status LED indicates speed & settings

Here’s Pete Thorn’s great DryBell Vibe Machine V-2 demo.


Here’s our original V-1 demo for comparison. The V-2 does all this and more.

Sound & Performance:

Vibe Machine V-1 vs V-2

As we’ve already published a long and comprehensive Vibe Machine V-1 review, you can check out that article for an in-depth perspective on the features and sounds of the original pedal. We’re going to focus primarily on the new features found in the DryBell Vibe Machine V-2.

Custom Impedance

drybell-vibe-machine-v-2-review-best-uni-vibe-pedal-02The short version of the argument about which pedal sounds better is that DryBell made no changes to the inherent sound quality of the V-2 in comparison to the V-1. However, there are a few options that expand upon the sounds of the original. The V-2’s new Custom option lets the guitarist set an input impedance that falls between the Bright & Original settings carried over from the V-1. This 3rd option lets you set an impedance level that may more closely match your preferred guitar & pickup combination. Essentially, these options decide how dark or bright the pedal sounds. The Original mode is the darkest and typically a great place to start for classic “Uni-Vibe” sounds or if you’re playing brighter pickups. The Bright setting is much brighter and more modern sounding and is may be better suited to darker humbucker pickups. The Custom setting can be voiced anywhere in between the other two voices via a small trimmer accessible on the side of the pedal. (DryBell includes a small trimmer adjustment tool to make it easy for you.) I personally prefer this setting, and ears more sensitive and experienced than mine will probably go for this option as well. You can tune the Custom setting for your “A” guitar, and maybe select the other options if they’re more closely suited to your backup guitars.

Pedal+ Input & DryBell F-1L Foot-Switch

The V-1 had an expression pedal input. That’s here on the V-2 as well, and it works with the same expression pedals (including the Mission Engineering EP-100K) and even CV control. You can adjust the taper as well as set the max sweep range. You can also custom calibrate the pedal to achieve a full sweep when using expression pedals that don’t quite access the V-2’s full sweep range. You can even access the V-2’s Cancel & Tap Tempo functions while using an expression pedal, but I find a dedicated foot-switch like the DryBell F-1L to be better suited for these functions.

Leslie Fast & Slow Ramping

The Pedal+ input jack also allows the use of an external foot-switch such as the DryBell F-1L (which matches the V-2’s paint job nicely, I must say) for several live performance options. You can use the F-1L foot-switch to trigger Leslie style fast & flow vibe speeds. You can easily set 2 different speeds and also set the ramp rate as slow as 10 seconds or instant so that the V-2 jumps between the fast and slow speeds when you tap the foot-switch.

Cancel & Tap Tempo

drybell-vibe-machine-v-2-review-best-uni-vibe-pedal-03Another option for the foot-switch is using it to “Cancel” the vibe effect while still letting your guitar signal be colored by the sound of the V-2, similar to the original “Uni-Vibe”. Use this with the Grit trimmer, Volume trimmer, and Custom, Bright, or Original settings to tweak the colored sound. The V-2 is true bypass, so your sound will be uncolored when you disengaged the pedal.

Perhaps more useful is the Cancel + Tap Tempo foot-switch mode. This condenses the full range of knob selectable Speed to the area between minimum and about 1 o’clock. If you click the F-1L while the knob is in this Speed range, it’ll activate the Cancel function. If you push the speed knob a bit higher, you can select from 3 different tap quantize settings (more multipliers available in the sub-menu) and use the foot-switch to tap in a tempo. There are markers around the Speed knob to show you where you have it set, and the LED will flash different colors as you turn the knob through the different tap settings. You could use the side of your foot to adjust the Speed knob during a live performance if you need to adjust tap settings on the fly or switch back to Cancel mode and access manual rate adjustment with the Speed knob.

Grit Trimmer

There was an Output Buffer jumper on the V-1 that allowed you to create a slightly “hotter” sound coming out of the pedal. That’s been replaced on the V-2 with a dedicated Grit side trimmer. To really hear how this trimmer affects your tone, engage the Cancel function via foot-switch and listen to the “dry” colored sound of your guitar as you play. A/B various Grit settings against your bypassed tone, and you’ll notice a bit more presence in your sound as you increase the Grit. I like to keep it around the factory setting (1 o’clock-ish) and use some overdrive or fuzz if I want to bring out a more harmonically rich sound. But it’s important to note that the Grit trimmer interacts with the Volume trimmer and which impedance setting you’re using. Try adjusting this trimmer when setting your Custom impedance to hone in on your preferred sound.

Chorus Trimmer

This parameter affects the harmonic modulation of the vibe and dials in the swirly, watery, chewy character of the effect. The V-1 didn’t have this control and was preset to around the noon position of this trimmer. The V-2 comes preset around 2-3 o’clock, so you may notice a slight variation between the two pedals at first. DryBell recommends setting the Chorus to noon for a sound that cuts through the mix in a band setting better, but if you want it to be intense with plenty of ‘throb’, leave it around the factory setting. Don’t be afraid of all the options as the default settings are all a great place to start, and I typically came back around to where DryBell had already set the trimmers.

drybell-vibe-machine-v-2-review-best-uni-vibe-pedal-04One thing I’m really happy about is that DryBell removed the internal controls and made everything available on the top or side of the pedal. Gotta love the handy little DryBell Trimmer Adjustment Tool they include as well. You probably won’t need it much after the initial setup. Frankly, most guitarists could get away with just plugging it in and finding a great sound on the surface. If you’re going to use Tap Tempo or one of the expression pedal modes, you’ll probably just want to consult the manual for those instructions. But this review doesn’t even cover everything the V-2 is capable of. There are plenty of other calibration settings available via digging into the sub-menus of this pedal. Your vibe adventure can be as simple or as deep as you want it to be. If you love vibe effects, most guitarists will agree that it probably doesn’t get any better than this.

Overall-Rating-5.0

The DryBell Vibe Machine V-2 took the world’s most versatile compact vibe and made it better thanks to the inclusion of Tap Tempo via the F-1L foot-switch and the Custom input setting for matching the V-2 to your favorite guitar. It was always commendable how DryBell managed to fit so much into the V-1, and the V-2 somehow surpasses its predecessor in usability. If you’re happy with your V-1 and don’t need tap tempo, the upgrade may not be essential. But if you love vibe sounds and have yet to try a Vibe Machine, the V-2 is a must play.

That concludes our DryBell Vibe Machine V-2 review. Thanks for reading.

  1. this sits at the top of my wishlist ahead of the Neo Ventilator II and the Digitech Freqout. I’d also want to add a pedal for controlling the speed as well. Wish I had the money to buy one when they gave a discount of $50 to celebrate their soccer teams victory.

  2. Cool pedal!

  3. Damon Palyka says:

    Sexy

  4. Trevor Owen says:

    Brilliant!!

  18. paul torbert says:

    want it !!!!

  19. Lee Morse says:

    Looks like a fun pedal. As always, thank you for your hard work and reviews.

  20. For many pedals one could state that it is a matter of taste. However, for Uni-vibes there is a more objective quality important. The chorus effect can switch too quickly or abrupt;y, not ‘even’ enough (that something else than speed, it’s a kind of ‘dip’. This pedal does that well. Which contributes to its reputation, I guess. Epic sound, I love it.

  21. Tim Danes says:

    Amazing pedal, can’t wait to try one!

  22. Francisco says:

    I can´t think of any other pedal in the world that would fit better in my pedalboard, hands down :¬P

  23. Dimitris Korontzis says:

    It seems very nice

  24. Dry Bell Vibe Machine sounds like a kinky sex toy designed to get your rocks off… and from what I hear, it does just that. Haha, sign me up!

  25. Robert Broome says:

    Probably one of the best univibe pedals around, and definitely the most pedal board friendly! Gotta get my hands on one! Puts the other clones to shame!!

  26. Oleksandr Pechenenko says:

    Cool pedal!I like it )

  27. SzeChai Chan says:

    Always want a vibe pedal in my board, I’ve tried other brand but it seems not work right with me…. still looking for one and I heard from internet that Drybell is an excellent one without doing the job in a big size box, really want to try!

  28. John Mcelroy says:

    Vibe is an interesting effect I never really have used. I had a flanger way back, but sold it to buy something nicer. I imagine this works well with a good drive setting. Thanks for the post and videos.

  29. Bruce Selzler says:

    Like the sound. Would love to have one

  30. would be great to own one of these pedals……

  40. R Peters says:

    Great pedal!

  41. Robert Peters says:

    Please come home to me

  42. I honestly would have had no idea how much could be done with this pedal. Would love to play with it and see just how far you can get it to go. BTW I usually mark my initial setting putting a red dot on the pot and then right next to it on the case or pcb using the end of a paperclip and some red paint. Learned that trick a long time ago so I can get the original setting back.

  43. Great pedal!!!

  44. Jan Marchal says:

    The Univibe effect is so nice to use, from ambient ‘Pink Floyd’ chords to groovy ‘Jimi Hendrix’ riffs.
    This is an awesome nice review, the Vibe Machine is surely the best Vibe pedal out there.
    How i would love to own one and touch people’s hearts with its mesmerizing sounds…

  45. john j pioli says:

    WOW I could really use this

  46. Jonas Nielsen says:

    Would be awesome with Korg Volca’s!

  47. Evan Goldstein says:

    I wonder how it sounds on bass!

    Gimme gimme!

  52. Yes I want one !!!!

    Playing in a cover band this would be a great for the songs in the late 60’s through the 70’s!
    Send it my way, great sounding pedal!

  54. Nice review! I want one. Thanks!

  55. Didier Nolin says:

    Very nice tool

  56. Faithful “Uni-Vibe” circuit?

    But will it pick up the local radio station?!

    I miss the old Univibe!

  57. Always looking for that next pedal that does it’s job so well.

  58. Felipe Devicaro says:

    Really nice sounds!

  59. Christophe says:

    Wow. Should be a great add on to my pedal board!

  60. katherine frazier says:

    I’ve never really considered a Vibe pedal…..until now.

  61. David Morgan says:

    I’ve never used a Vibe but hey Im a pretty open minded guy and up for some new experiences. Is it appropriate to use in public or is it more for the bedroom guitarist?

  62. Will this “Vibe Machine” ice my cake or make my cookie crumble?
    If I win it I’ll be sure to let you know…

  63. Sounds like a great effect to have on most pedalboards!

  64. GOD I want one of these!!!

  65. jon flint says:

    A great sounding pedal!

  66. Fran Prado says:

    Sounds really great.

  67. Cannot go wrong with the classic vibe sound.

  68. Kris Mulholland says:

    An amazing sounding pedal!

  69. Stanislav Evmeshkin says:

    Great pedal!

  70. Chris Parry says:

    Awesome pedal

  71. Ilias Papanikolaou says:

    Looks and sounds cool, would love to have one!

  72. Colin Fitzpatrick says:

    That thing sounds absolutely beautiful

  73. Simon Weeks says:

    Like the Dybell review – can’t wait to win it!

  74. Ignacio Gamper says:

    Sounds great!
    Please me!

  75. Looks like an awesome vibe – I’ve been doing the rounds looking for one to add to the board – DryBell seems to have nailed it

  76. Great sounding pedal. I’d love one!

  77. Erick Chicas says:

    best vibe ever made! I need one

  78. Kovács Pál says:

    Wow

  79. I have always loved vibes. There are only a few good ones and the Drybell Vibe Machine v2 is at the top of that list because of its small footprint. This pedal has been on my list for a while, it would be great to win it! I use the vibe mostly with my fuzz pedals.

  80. Eduardo Ferreira says:

    Awesome pedal!!

  81. Is it even possible to improve upon what was already awesome?!

  82. Jesse Turvey says:

    I’ve never found a modulation pedal that I have been able to bond well with, unless pitch shifters are considered modulation pedals! Haha
    I’d like to try this one though!
    Looks really neat!

  83. Gary Plaus says:

    The DryBell Vibe Machine is interesting. Would like to try it.

  84. Andre Meloche says:

    SS Size-Sound Amazing

  85. Mattias Redbo says:

    Looks cool, would love to try one out!

  86. Nick Pandolph says:

    I love the sound of a vibe behind some wet reverb when playing ambient parts, but it’s hard to find a good one that doesn’t alter the tone while adding the effect. It’s awesome to see a pedal like this come through!

  87. Dan Kucera says:

    Killer box!

  88. Richard Clark says:

    That vibe is outta this world. Would love to have one

  89. This looks awesome! I would love one.

  90. Excellent pedal!

  91. I think Dry Bell has perhaps totally figured out what guitarists want in a vibe pedal…..you know what it is?
    Thanks right….complete control over the tone and the intensity of the vibrato ! not to mention the small foot print compared to other vibe pedals!

    With all the features in the this small pedal and connection options for further control makes this vibe pedal the end all be all of vibe pedals.

    I think they nailed the grit function extremely well to dial in difference pickup configurations from single coil to humbucker pickups which has been more of single coil strat vibe !! lol in pun intended. This pedal needs to be on my pedalboard!!

  92. nick duba says:

    Jimi in a box! Rad!

  93. James Nordick says:

    Wow,great sounding little pedal!

  94. Marco Gallerin says:

    Rad Vibes!

  95. looks decent

  96. John Nickell says:

    Ring my bell

  97. Daniel Healy says:

    I love that opto sound! I could only imagine how beautifully this would layer with my old Mutron Phasor II

  98. Randyanto says:

    Oh the trimpot can be accessed from the outside that’s AWESOME!! I have a painful experience to set the tone and volume of my EWS Little Brute Drive V1

  99. Fred St Clair says:

    That is one cool pedal. I would love to take it for a spin.

  100. This pedal sounds great!!!!

  101. Sounds so cool, dying to get one!

  102. Sherman W Loper says:

    What a nice machine!

  103. Jon-Inge Paulsen says:

    Great demo! And great pedal, too!

  104. Omar Silva says:

    Psychedelic vibe!

  105. Erik Aagard says:

    The nicest east vibe I’ve heard. Wow.

  106. Mike Spencer says:

    This vibes from this pedal sound great

  107. William Gould says:

    This is all I need to complete my rig

  108. It looks great, I want one

  109. Jim Pfaltzgraff says:

    Sounds like a fun pedal to experiment with.

  110. Mark Emmerton says:

    One of the best vibes out there (if not the best!)

  111. Doug Child says:

    Great sound! A pedal like this inspires new music to come out!

  112. Chris Parker says:

    Version 2’s addition of a tap tempo makes this the perfect vibe in my opinion!

  113. Fantastic pedal!

  114. I’ve always wanted a DRY Bell Vibe because nothing I’ve tried sounds better. period. Would be thrilled, absolutely thrilled to win. This is not just a contest I want to enter, but a pedal I want, but cannot afford to due medical issues plaguing me in recent years.

  115. Gonzo HJ says:

    Is it possible to improve upon what was already awesome?

  116. Nice

  117. Love the Univibe sound. Cool pedal.

  118. Very Nice! sounds very versatile, a good choice for many reasons!

  119. Looks like a very cool pedal!

  120. Jeff Rester says:

    Super awesome pedals, would love to have one on my board!

  121. Looks incredible!

  122. Every time I hear it I think, this has got to be the best Vibe…

  123. Randy W Kirkpatrick says:

    This pedal is crazy cool! I’d love to add this pedal to my board!

  124. I love the thought of being able to utilize the additional foot switch.

  125. I sure would love to win this! I have seen reviews of the pedal and it sounds fantastic.

  126. Looks outstanding

  127. Donnie Fretter says:

    a must when playing Jimi and plain cool for anything else

  128. Michael Pasapera says:

    Yo this seems really interesting!!! Vibes tho ? Idk, but it’s deffinitly something I would use for most of my music ideas lol
    I can see it being really inspirational. That’s the type of stuff I like tho!!!

  129. Fantastic vibe!

  130. Rodger Reed says:

    That is a fantastic sounding effect! I can hear so many uses for this sound, and obviously this pedal has a ton of variations. It’s so evocative and vibrant. Thanks for bringing this pedal to our attention. It’s now on my list!

  131. Philip D Grow says:

    Thanks for a great review. Definitely a pedal I am looking to get

  132. sandy declercq says:

    How do you enter if you are already subscribed?

  133. Only heard great things about DryBell. Fingers crossed I snag this one.

  134. Awesome sounding vibe with great features!!

  135. I hope I win this! It sounds incredible

  136. Ulrich Schaeffer says:

    That´s the pedal missing in my collection. I hope to win it.

  137. Robert Koch says:

    I would love to win this and get some SRV sounds

  138. Once that grit control was cranked I was sold! One of the best sounding vibe pedals I’ve heard

  139. Mac Lore says:
  140. Felipe Rojas says:

    Really looking forward to play with one :D Rave reviews on internet and amazing clips on youtube, but I guess nothing compares to actually play with and hear Drybell Vibe Machine live

  141. Great sounding Vibe! What is everyone’s preference on where to run it? In front of overdrive/distortion, or after? Or in the Effects Loop of an amp?

  142. Denise Sitton says:

    Would love to add a quality pedal to my board. Thanks for the chance!

  143. Kevin L. Gibbs says:

    Swirly goodness and definitely channeling your inner Jimi.

  144. The best Vibe!

  145. Justin Wilson says:

    I forget this is one of those effects I’ve secretly wanted forever – and not for its traditional use in blues etc. This is awesome!

  146. Darryl Robbins says:

    Ooh vibes, man – so cool! What Hendrix and Trower started (a few of my big favorites), and a lot of the newer blues rock players are swinging back around to!
    My pedalboard is devoid of a vibe, and for the music I want to try and master…that’s a potential for blasphemy!
    I would love to give the DryBell a spin to help me keep the Austin music scene weird AND rockin!

  147. Greg Macmillan says:

    What a beauty

  148. Dieter Pirner says:

    Amazing upgrade to an amazing pedal from an amazing Company!

  149. Linus Barske says:

    I need this,:)

  150. Bill Siepierski says:

    Send it my way.

  151. Jim Richardson says:

    Such a cool pedal!!!!

  152. Very sweet sounding pedal!

  153. Derek Ward says:

    Would love to have this amazing sounding pedal!

  154. Myles Dunne says:

    I’ve been wanting a vibe pedal for a long time. This pedal looks awesome!!

  155. Mike Freed says:

    I’ve always wanted to try a vibe pedal but have been afraid to. This one doesn’t look as scary….

  156. James R Baumgartner says:

    Pete does an excellent job explaining the features!

  157. Bret Alexander says:

    Dang! That is cool!

  158. I could put this to good use.

  159. Would totally use it in rhodes and synth stuff!
    I’m sure it’s fantastic.

  160. Dilip Venkateswaran says:

    I love the warmth of the chorus in this one!

  161. Lately I’ve been looking for something different to put on my board and I thought what about a vibe that isnt something I don’t normally use. So I started looking for one then I got this email from bestguitareffects.com showing their review of the drybell vibe machine v2 which is ..awesome .. it’s the right size for my board and functions which can be endless experiments plus that tap tempo control is amazing. Thanks for the heads up guys. Good job

  162. Really good vibes!
    I want it!
    Thanks!

  163. I love Vibe. Slow, swirling vibe that chews for days. Used sparingly it makes for a wonderful addition to any rig!

  164. Razvan Lazea-Postelnicu says:

    They made me comment!

  165. Sash Kosovic says:

    Yea boi!!!!

  166. Philip Ramundo says:

    Great sound!

  167. Kenneth Patrick says:

    I have a friend with one of these and he is funk all day on this thing. Quite impressive.

  168. It just so happens that Ghostbound is writing new material and can make use of this! Out full-length record is coming out in June, officially, and we have two as-yet unheard tracks on the bandcamp page below!

  169. Rick Rice says:

    Hopefully uses photocells?

  170. Michael Lim says:

    This is mine!

  171. Awesome!

  172. Carl Martin says:

    That’s an awesome sounding pedal!

  173. This is an awesome sounding pedal, I’d love to have it on my board.

  174. Timothy Britton says:

    What Jesse said below…

  175. Ok, I love features and hidden options. But man, removing the internal switches is the smartest move. It’s cool when you find out that there’s more in the pedal, but the excitement ends there, then you gotta do trial and error for a while. So extra credit for this amazing pedal!

  176. Scott Thompson says:

    ~~~vibes~~~

  177. Peter Ferguson says:

    Love to check this out!

  178. M.Emin Kendirci says:

  192. Rafael Lázaro says:

    Maybe this time.

  193. Ronald Olszewski says:

    Love the spacey sounds!

  194. Silas Garrett says:

    I like to add vibe to both slow, spacey sounds and to quick, fingerpicked passages.

  195. Rob Stein says:

    The custom impedance thing is essential. Gotta have it!

  196. Dallas Oliver says:

    This thing sounds incredible. Recently been obsessive over vibes, still don’t have one!

  197. Dan Lawrence says:

    I hope to win it

  198. Byron Oyler says:

    Fantastic sounding vibe and a great addition to the market . Great job with the v2 !

    Versatile and nails the classic vibe sound.

  207. Graeme Wilson says:

    Awesome thing.. need to hear one first hand.

  208. I’d love to try one!

  209. It is so fun vibing to that sweet vibe machine!

  210. Dennis Gaines says:

    This looks soooo good!

  211. Andrew Munafo says:

    Show a neophyte the way of the vibe

  212. Alexander says:

  213. Beau C Osland says:

    Would love to win this!

  214. Nathan Froese says:

    Cool vibe! I’m a fan of traditional users like Hendrix, but love J. Mascis of Dinosaur Junior!

  215. Daphne Gaertner says:

    I’ve always wanted a Drybell Vibe Machine, I just love their sound and all the different setting are so convenient, you just can achieve anything you want with this awesome workhorse. It’s so awesome but there’s one slight problem, in my country they are very hard to get, and when you find one, they’re extremely expensive, so that’s sad. I really hope I win, because I’ve been GASsing for this pedal for so long. Lots of love.

  216. Olivier Homps says:

    I already own v1. Not sure it’s worth upgrading, but hey still a lovely pedal

  217. Sounds great, hope I win it to test in person!

  218. Mark Leahey says:

    Absolutely beautiful pedal. So small and lush sounding. Amazing work. Can’t wait to get one.

  219. Bob Barnett says:

    V2 sounds even better IMHO than V1, perfect for nailing vintage Jimi sounds as well as moving forward to new explorations. Can’t wait to have one on my board, also a great board space saver compared to other LARGE vibe pedals!

  220. Bob Barnett says:

  221. Brett Paschen says:

    The DryBell Vibe Machine V-2 sounds amazing!I love using vibe subtly and also sometimes using it more aggressively when doing ethereal type tracks.My favorite players that use vibe are SRV,Robin Trower,David Gilmour and of course Jimi Hendrix.

  222. Looks rad! I would do a shootout between this and my Walrus Audio Julia.

  223. Cool!!

  224. Steven Susanto says:

    When it comes to pedal review before buying them, I’m always relying to the true and best source, “PETE THORN”.
    His demo of the pedal is really amazing and he did it really well. I believe this is TRULY, Best of the Best, SPECTABULOUS Vibe Machine pedal on the market.
    SALUTE to the Drybell team, Great job guys.

  225. I’ve never played a vibe. It sounds awesome and looks really fun to play, though! Thanks for a great review!

  226. I love the sound of this pedal. Just starting to acquire some. I play blues and a little soft rock and Americana. I only have two pedals now, but I’ve been looking for something to brighten up the sound and make it sound more scratchy and gritty. The demo sounds great.

  227. Lorenzo Assogna says:

    ❤❤❤ Absolute amazing sound! Really nice demo by Pete Thorn, it really seems one of the Best uni vibe pedals on the market!
    For me the vibe sound is the Hendrix sound, no doubt, and I really love Doyle Brahmall II sound too! Very Hendrix-style but in a modern way, fucking love it!

  228. Kristijan says:

    Go Croatia!

  229. This pedal sounds great! What a vibe!

  230. Anders Pylypchuk says:

    This vibe looks awesome. Hoping to get some Hendrix tones out of it. Thanks for the review!

  231. Lucas Honda says:

    My last comment never went through, either way. Cool review, I’ll look into this pedal a bit more.

  232. Lucas Honda says:

    I love to try pedals. This one looks like a blast to combine with a distortion one from greenchild. Cool review, I’ll look a bit more into this.

  233. Diko Setiawan says:

    Cool sound…great pedal.. Any time can testing to bass guitars… Make to killer sound..

  234. What a great vibe pedal!

  235. Terrell Wan says:

    I am looking for a good uni-vibe pedal for my Hendrix tone a long time, and the DryBell Vibe Machine V2 is the one which I found most tweakable and small size that fit on my pedal board! Love that!

  236. Евгений Курбатов (Evgenii K.) says:

    Hi Gabe! Well… it’s my turn now. Thanks!

  237. JOSE F. RODRIGUEZ says:

    great device

  238. Edward San Martin says:

    What a great vibe pedal!

  239. Alex Coleti says:

    Would be a great addiction! Love vibe pedals!

  240. Really Cool! And great review!

  241. it’s a killer vibe! nothing sounds quite as good as optical.

  242. Caden Lowery says:

    That’s a nice pedal.

  243. Jacob Lacayo says:

    This pedal looks like the mother of all vibe pedals! So many different parameters to tailor to your specific needs, and yet so simple with only two knobs. Awesome!!

  244. While I love the classic use of a Vibe in blues and rock music, I can’t wait to add some vibe textures to my ambient setup. There are so many pedals out there but so few use a vibe.. Probably the most underrated effect still to this day, outside of the die hard fans of Hendrix and the likes.

    Also, from the demos I’ve watched (wich is a lot) the Drybell Vibe Machine V2 annihilates all the other vibes out there. Plus it looks the best to top it off.

  245. It’s quite amazing these guys have managed to squeeze a real optical vibe circuit into such a small footprint making it one of the few vibes that can fit on a pedal board no problem. Well done…

    …does it come in lime green?

  246. Cool looking pedal. Would be a great addition.

  247. Awesome! Thanks for the review!

  248. oh man. that sounds great. want.

  249. Matthew Peterson says:

    This pedal would absolutely complete my pedal board, and from the sounds of it, I would have a TON of options to mess with. I have tried a few vibrato pedals, but none sounded this good.

    Great reviews, I have bought several pedals due to this page and I recommend my friends coming here for the thorough reviews!

    Dry Bell makes some great sounding stuff.
    It’s the type of pedal I’d like to win.

  252. Jason Davis says:

    Dig that vibe. Sounds vintage all the way. Jimi Hendrix and Trey Anastasio I think are my favorite users of the uni-vibe.

  253. Sean Sullivan says:

    Great sounding compact vibe pedal. I personally like using vibrato pedals to add some depth and warble to clean sounds, like Nels Cline or Real Estate.

  254. Thomas Milner says:

    I’d love to take it for a spin!

  255. Such juice, much sauce. *Slurp

  256. Kyle Tippin says:

  260. Do you feel that too? It’s that vibe, dude! It’s the machine, yeah!

  261. Matt Collins says:

    This thing is smooth AND has a lot of potential for unextected sounds. Looks like you get a lot of control, too!

  262. Michael Woods says:

    This would be a pedal I would love to add to my repetoire

  263. I take place in contest!!

  264. Kiran roy says:

  267. John Varney says:

    Nice review thanks!

  268. Apostolis Sitaras says:

    I never thought that I would say that, but this thing is pure innovation… Huge sound.. Hendrix sound…. Crazy vibe!

    Kiss my ears and say you want me

  269. Thanks for bringing us these great reviews Trimpots accessible through the side of the pedal. Genius. I hope that idea catches on. I am on the hunt for a great Vibe. Maybe this is where the hunt ends.

  270. I wonder if it is a good competitor for the walrus julia

  271. I like vibes

    Wow, this is a beast! Would love that for my setup

  286. I love it, give so much space to your sound

  287. Man I would love one of these, it oozes Hendrix!

  288. The “vibe” sound seems to be harder to catch than a greased pig. I needs me a greased ping!

  289. Aizat Mohd Razali says:

    David Gilmore, I’m coming your way..

  290. Stefan Vos says:

  299. Fede kemp says:

    Great sounding pedal!!! Could be great for some SRV tones

  300. David García-Moreno Domínguez says:

    Best modulation pedal ive ever heard

  301. Edward Fulton says:

    Sounds like a really good “vibe”. It really could really add to my many pedals and sounds as if it might even kick a pedal or two off my pedal board.

  302. Andrew Hensley says:

    Modulation is life.

  303. Best sounding vibe!

  304. Bruno Salheb Moelas Ribeiro says:

    Man, this is awesome!!!

  305. Adam Barr says:

    This pedal sounds amazing, and I love that they added more controls on the outside. It seems like s huge jump from V-1. Can’t wait to play it!

  306. Nicholas Merz says:

    Looks and sounds awesome!

  307. Matt King says:

    Sounds killer!

  308. Aizat Mohd Razali says:

    Hendrix & Gilmour!

  317. Really cool little pedal with an awesome range. Would def be a great addition to any board looking for a little vibe.

  318. Sounds amazing! Love all the sounds this makes!

  319. Fabian T. says:

    I just want that little wrench

  320. Love it! I’ve been listening to a lot of the Youtube-reviews of the V-1 when it came out, and was so close to getting one at the time. I love the tap-switch that comes with this new one, I could definitely find a place for it on my board :)

  321. I want one!

  322. john j pioli says:

    WOW, I must have this pedal!

  323. Kyle Jenkins says:

    Awesome little pedal. Would love to try one myself.

  326. George Berry says:

    This is literally Hendrix reincarnate. Gimme gimme gimme!

  329. Bshmonger says:

    This sounds exactly like what I’ve been looking for!!

  330. Sean Gosse says:

    I love me some vibe with a bit of fuzz. You can get some awesome sounds. This pedal may be the ticket for me.

  331. Adam hoch says:

    I’ve never found a vibe that grabbed me enough to buy so maybe this is the dilla.

  332. Great pedal. Spot on review. Have seen this creeping up on quite a few boards now, and after hearing it, I now know why.

  333. Can’t wait to hear one of these jammers

  334. *obligatory good vibes comment

    *id – “i’ve made a huge mistake”

    *ego – “shut up, no ragrats”

    *superego – “good vibes”

  335. Thanks for the review. The vibe machine sounds great.

  336. Daniel West says:

    I’ve always wanted a Vibe Machine. I remember hearing about the first version years ago and being very impressed by not only the demos but the quality of the design and how many options there were. Version two basically fixes any of the ‘issues’ with the original.

  337. Good vibes!

  338. Sounds like an interesting pedal.

  339. Eric Johnsons and Erik Mongrain give off the coolest vibes with their guitars in my opinion. Erics tone and Mongrains percussive technique are unmatched. I would love to have a vibe machine to create some rockin vibes.

  340. Damn… sounds pretty amazing. Want it

  341. Jerome Blanchet says:

    Lovely sound i need this one !

  342. erik aagard says:

    Cute little footswitch.

  347. Would love to get that on my pedalboard. Awesome sounding pedal!

  348. Justin Krampert says:

    This is the most delightful vibe pedal ever to be played. It sounds luxurious, no matter what your favourite guitar is and frolics with other pedals.

    Here’s a small poem I wrote,dedicated to Drybell’s superb pedal:
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Canto for a Uni-Vibe

    Come, Sun, sink behind the trees,
    Thy farewell in the dimming twilight,
    As thy sweetly strummed melody flees,
    What notes fade soft into the distant, dusky night.
    To hold the very shadows of this waking-sleep,
    And softly strum a pulsing melody,
    An ode for the with’ring stars to keep,
    What incantations into the vast, for thee!

    ~ 2018 J. Krampert
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Vibezzz.

  362. Robert Abernathy says:

    Wow – that sounds pretty great

  363. Looks really interesting. I’ve wanted to try a nice univibe for quite some time now.

  364. Ignacio Gomory says:

    Fantastic sounding pedal!

  365. Stan Nelson says:

    Has anyone used this with a bass? I use a chorus when I need big lush swimmy tones, I wonder if this would cover that as well as offer some interesting alternatives

  366. Fernando Almela says:

    WOW beauty sound! I want it in my pedalboard. Good luck for all and rock&roll!

    I heard from YouTube comments that this is the best vibe pedal (among its size, not to compare the bigger unit like Shin-ei’s) and I want to try so bad

  387. Jonathan Timpe says:

    Great sounding pedal. Not a fan of heavy vibe and often wish there was mix knobs on vibe pedals, but this one sounds pretty sweet!

    P.S. I use my vibe tones for recreating the psychedelic tones of the 60s and 70s From Jimi Hendrix sounds and to Pink Floyd ! And my own vibe sounds to my solid Rock sounds to Blues ! Rock-on everyone and play ! Enter the BEST GUITAR EFFECTS contest for the VIBE MACHINE PEDAL ! And rock-on you axe slingers ! ! ! Sincerely , Dere S.

  405. Derek Sasaki says:

    My favorite vibe using guitarist would have to be Jimi Hendrix ! I personally into the vibe sound because I grew up in in the late 1960s and early 1970s and I am over fifty ! Not to say that I love any kind of effect I can use in my guitar arsenal of tone ! Distortion , overdrive chorus and ect ! Whatever makes my tone the best of the best ! Back in the late 1960s Jimi Hendrix used in Woodstock the original vibe machine and boy did he make sound radical ! Stoked about this awesome BEST GUITAR EFFECTS contest ! And this effect vibe made a lot of super guitar players famous including Robin Trower ! This is my official entry into your awesome contest ! Good luck everyone ! Sincerely , Derek S.

  406. Bill Crown says:

    This pedal is amazing. It sounds great all by itself and it’s incredibly versatile. I can see playing some Hendrix, SRV, and even Eric Johnson inspired music if I was fortunate enough to score this! Good luck to all.

  407. Luke Jackman says:

    I could really vibe with the new DryBell Vibe Machine V-2

  408. Felipe Devicaro says:

  422. Mick Dann says:

    Sounds amazing, please send me one!

  423. A good Leslie imitator is hard to come by. I am very impressed by this pedal!

  424. Very nice.
    Cool Hendrix tones happening ♠️

  425. Robert Peters says:

    This looks great!

  426. Stephane dery says:

    The vibe machine is ar the top of my list ognon pedals to try/buy right now. It would be so great to win one :O

  427. Looks awesome!

  428. Manfred Ganswindt says:

    Verry nice. Like it. Want it!

  429. THAT is the sound.

  430. I want to be Hendrix.

  431. Andre Meloche says:

    Boardlicious Vibe&Space

  432. Authentic and great Uni-Vibe sound with cool modern thinking. Especially like the variable input option, look forward to hearing the grit effect added in.

  433. Christian Merizalde says:

    Christian needs it!!

  434. Looks like family pedals, want them for my kid.
    He’s 10 and loves Satriani
    Best

  435. Robert Koch says:

  436. John Mccormick says:

  437. Very impressive sounds.

  438. greg brunette says:

    Va va va vibe

  439. Seth O. says:

    Thanks as always!

  440. Zachary Seelye says:

    Sweet vibe!

  441. Johnny Huynh says:

    Very VERY nice!

  442. Definitely a must have pedal. Could make some awesome hendrix and Trower sounds with this!

  443. Casey schroeder says:

    I would really love to add one of these to my pedalboard.

  444. Nerijus says:

    This Vibe pedal is just great

  445. Woohoo Croatia

  446. The Vibe Machine is the perfect Vibe Pedal utilizing all the vintage sounds in a small box! Robin Trower utilized this sound in almost all his work! Hope to celebrate my birthday a bit late with a new pedal for my mix-up!

  447. Deke Roberts says:

    Hendrix and Trower in the same pedal. What’s not to like? Nothing of course, that’s why almost every vibe pedal on the block makes the same claim (Building a pedal that was one but not the other, now that would a trick. A stupid one, but a trick all the same…), I’d like to say that this pedal is going to have to go some to beat the Effectrode Tube-vibe, but to be honest, after spending a small fortune on the thing, I don’t really like it, so this could be the pedal to satisfy my vibiness jones (At the moment I’m using the Marshall which actually is pretty good for the price). The trouble is, with my Effectrode experience still in my mind, I wouldn’t buy this without trying it, so I guess it may be a while, or at least a couple of guitar shows, before I get the chance.

    Looking forward to it all the same.

  448. deheuvels says:

    This pedal is my day dream. Please please please…

  449. Angel Tejon says:

    Great sounding pedal !!

  450. Lubomir Hristov says:

    today is my birthday.. the Vibe Machine…

  451. Douglas Ives says:

    Always wanted a vibe pedal, never really new which one to get…
    Now I know.
    Awesome review.

  452. Andrew Gay says:

    This pedal sounds like it’s exactly what I’ve been looking for, awesome sounds and nicely customizable, great stuff

  453. Wow packing all those features into a standard size Pedal is great. Thanks for the great review!

  454. Dave Steiger says:

    Come on, who in their right mind goes, “Eh, meh!” over this box? Killer vibe, s must have!

  455. Ian Swanberg says:

    I love SRV, Hendrix, and Gilmour, and I’d love to achieve their tones with this amazing pedal! I’ve wanted the V-1 ever since I first saw it demoed a couple years back, and to get the chance to win the V-2 would be even better!

  456. William Gould says:

    Of I won…. This would complete my rig.

  457. William Otto says:

    Looks Awesome!

  458. Ran Isenberg says:

    Gilmour fan here. I mainly want to chase all PF sounds. It’s hard to find a quality vibe pedal and this one seems perfect to me!

  459. Philippe Bouchard says:

    Amazing tone without sacrificing cool features !! Love it… Plus vibe is my favorite effect :)

  460. Carl Martin says:

    Awesome pedal!

  461. Colin Peterson says:

    I have the V1 and I can’t imagine a better pedal…however, if its a Dry Bell, no doubt in my mind that they pulled off yet another miracle!!! Fingers crossed that I can replace my V1 with the winning V2 and switch!!!

  462. Hi everyone!
    Great pedal and I could use the Footswitch too!! Really hope to get one of! these

  463. Jean LLerena says:

    micro adjustments are my thing!!!!! seems like one can really make this pedal pretty personal

  464. Desmond Reddick says:

    I’d love this. It would be fun to play with the footswitch.

  465. So freshh

  466. John Seetoo says:

    Cool way to get all of those 70s Nils Lofgren tones!

  467. Trey Burroughs says:

    Killer sound and features!

  468. James Lacan says:

    Beautiful sounds. Very versatile.

  469. Matthew Kopecky says:

    Looks like it would be fun to use.

  470. Seth Okrend says:

    sounds great!

  471. Richard Grier says:

    Cool sound.

  472. Sounds good!

  473. Brent Stewart says:

    sounds amazing – and great features, too

    thanks!

  474. Simon Buckton says:

    Love that Uni Vibe sound!

  475. Jeff Gottlieb says:

    Tap tempo?! Sign me up!!!

  476. Never used tap tempo much with this sort of effect, but the external controls and custom input settings really make sense to me.

  477. Richard Lynch says:

    Been playin a long time and have tried lotsa vibe fx pedals to get that Gilmour texture or Trower chew.
    Most left me wanting, but when hearing the vibe v2…was home free. Best sounds and feel easily obtained. Got some satisfaction at last without noise, fading settings etc…YES

  478. Wow, that’s an amazing level of control in such a small pedal! Gotta love the fact that DryBell only does vibes.

  479. Francois BRINGUIER says:

    Such a beauty ! Gorgeous sounds !

  480. Love the univibe sounds

  481. Marc Brule says:

    It’s like melting butter on good rye toast — full of flavor!

  482. tom butler says:

    woah! one of the best sounding vibes I’ve heard!!!

  483. Played a friend’s V1 lately, and fell in love. Just, guess what I missed: Tap tempo.
    Here we go. Btw: thanks for the clarity in your descriptions. After reading your tests, it actually feels like knowing what the thing can and can not do.

  484. oh lord i could use this!

  485. Sounds awesome.

  486. Thor soreleg says:

    Please, I need this pedal. Pick me pick me.

  487. Giannis.O says:

    This is aaaaawesome! :D

  488. Harry Hiles says:

    This is the best time pedal I’ve ever heard!

  489. Heavy memories coming up of being obsessed with the Band of Gypsies album in college. Still love those sounds so much.

  490. Sounds beautiful, and what a rich feature set.

  491. Steph Zlott says:

    This is my introduction to Dry Bell. The vibe machine looks well-thought out and I look forward to integrating it into my pedal board ASAP!

  492. I love good vibes from a pedal :-)

  493. Don Hearl says:

    The Vibe Machine sounds great and doesn’t take a lot of pedal board real estate. One reason I’ve moved to smaller (less authentic sounding) vibes was due to size. This ticks both boxes. Cheers.

  494. Best vibe pedal in the world!!!!

  495. Joshua Smith says:

    Sounds good, I’m into it!

  496. Oh the wonders of a vibe pedal. Such a necessary board inclusion!!

  497. Bruce Rainier says:

    Love this sound, maybe the best I have heard.

  498. Rob Herriman says:

    Pedal sounds fantastic, a vibe would be a great addition to my board!

  499. What a good alternative to the chorus/vibe staples that are on a lot of boards at the moment. Cool effect for sure

  500. marcelo barbero says:

    this is so awesome!!

  501. Joseph Bugg says:

    Sounds great! Thanks

  502. Joe Bush says:

    Seems like a really well-designed pedal, I’d love to try one some day!

  503. Derek K. says:

    Great sounding pedal. I’d love to play this, however my funds and many medical bills do not allow. Currently on my “wish list”.

  504. Great stuff! I’d be happy to try one!

  505. Jure Golob says:

    Good vibrations :)

  506. Daniel Arganda says:

    Great pedal, I’d love to have one.

  507. Bob Robins says:

    Seen some great reviews on this pedal. Must have !

  508. pierre clavier says:

    Cool j’adore ces sons psychédélique

  509. Nice. I really love the marked settings along the Intensity & Speed knobs, and the “bright” adjustment.

  510. Got the v1 for a while, loved it. The V2 is one of my favorite among all modulation pedals.

  511. LOVE this thing!!!

  512. I’ve been wanting one of these for quite some time. Great sounding pedal!!!

  513. Jonathan M says:

    I’ve been on the lookout for the perfect vibe for some time now. This just may be it.

  514. Such a great sound! Hope I win it.

  515. Christopher Faricy says:

    The DryBell Vibe Machine V2 Sounds like The Holy Grail of that Trower/Hendrix/SRV/Frank Marino tone. I have endlessly sought after the EXACT Nuances that the DryBell Vibe Machine V2 seems to be able to produce. I WANT THIS PEDAL!
    Apparently and Finally, my Quest may have reached a milestone with the WINNING of the DryBell VibeMachine V2. Simply Pick MY Name and I will have reached Valhalla.

  516. A great pedal – lots of controls, standard size, great tone!

  517. Albert Ceva says:

    Sounds like a great pedal.

  518. vibrato use needs reinventing – better do it with with a fine pedal like this one.

  519. Looking forward to it!

  520. paul torbert says:

    i NEED a Vibe pedal…… please?

  521. Love the sound of this vibe!

  522. Kevin L. Gibbs says:

    Oooooooo……. Nice!

  523. scott Ringel says:

    would love one, always try to send out Good Vibes

  524. marc-antoine pelletier says:

    can’t wait to try it ::::))))

  525. I’m definitely in the market for a good vibe.

  526. I like that it doesn’t sound “perfect”

  527. I like the custom-bright-normal switch. As a bass player, further eq options are always welcome!

  528. Rad!

  529. Alexander says:

    Amazing pedal! I’d like this one ;)

  530. sounds awesome. would love to add it to the pedal board.

  531. Graham T says:

    I’ve never used a vibe, but that Pete Thorn video makes me really want one!

  532. Tin sacer says:

    Huge hendrix fan, and theyre from my home country, Croatia.
    Would love to have one.

  533. Tulio Andrade says:

    Great pedal.

  534. Best small vibe on the planet as far as I’m concerned!

  535. Good vibes are what it’s all about mann.

  536. Damn, I need this! It’s absolutely gorgeous and perfect for my sound. I really hope I win!

  537. Enjoy a good vibe for sure…

  538. Bring On The Good Vibes !

  539. Ron Podovich says:

    Awesome review!

  540. nice!

  541. Tryed the vib machine v1 loved it

  542. Alexandre Gendreau says:

    Love it Need it!

  543. My favorite user is Michael Landau ! I use vibe pedals before any dirt – meaning before OD or any Distortion…

  544. Who couldn’t use more vibe in their music?

  545. happy international female guitar player’s day :p

  546. Tryed the vib machine love it

  547. This could easily become the centerpiece in my pedalboard. So. Good.

  548. Nice! I want one!

  549. David Peatfield says:

    Sounds great! Love the inclusion of tap tempo.

  550. want.

  551. Very cool pedal… the tap tempo is a great addition.

  552. Awesome pedal!

  553. Giuseppe Galato says:

    ROCK ‘N’ ROLL!!!

  554. So awesome! The best tone in the smallest package. Can’t be beat.

  555. Paul Warren says:

    I need this pedal in my life!

  556. Martin Smith says:

    Love it!

  557. Great sounding device.

  558. Robert May says:

    Love the trimmers, really flexible options and great classic tone on this one!

  559. Sounds like its an awesome tone machine!

  560. I would love this pedal to channel my inner Hendrix! Great review guys keep up the good work. Alan from Scotland UK.

  561. wow, lots of options on this one.

  562. Mattson says:

    Mucho chewy!

  563. Jack Feerick says:

    It’s a great effect when used subtly. Richard Thompson was the first guitarist I ever heard use vibe when playing solo acoustic, and it just thickened up his sound so nicely. And although it’s not a signature part of his sound, Bruce Cockburn’s done some great work with it—check out “Kit Carson,” from the NOTHING BUT A BURNING LIGHT record.

  564. Bret Alexander says:

    That is the coolest Vibe! Love to get my hands on one!!

  565. RICHARD says:

    Nice sounding box……….be real nice to have one

  566. Stephen says:

    I have a Fulltone Deja Vibe, but would love to upgrade to this.

  567. Gavin Wright says:

    Sounds niiiice

  568. Raulf Cheng says:

    Have the V1. Sounds great. Definitely want V2.

  569. Nick Meyer says:

    I really want to hear this thing in person and find out if it’s alot vibey? Or a little vibey?

  570. paulctorbert says:

    want one !

  571. Gabe Tonestoy says:

    I have always lusted after a Univibe pedal, but it never seems to be a higher priority than other things. If I could have any Univibe pedal, this Dry Bell would be the one! It sounds incredible and is so small and yet full-featured.

    But since it’s well out of my price range, I’ll have to just hope that I can win this pedal. Thanks BGE!

  572. Seems to be a great Vibe, it will be welcomed with cheering applause to my pedal board. I play Gilmour, Hendrix, and I think this one will do the job, I’m ready to give it a chance: D

  573. Felipe Rojas says:

    I used to own a univibe from another company and I haven’t had the pleasure of playing with this Drybell Vibe Machine V2, but from what I’ve read and heard this device is fantastic, simply brilliant. For people like me, who like the sounds of the 60’s and 70’s, and also play guitar, this is a must have!!

  574. I only use a tremelo mostly, but this univibe sounds amazing!!!

  575. Sebastien Comeau says:

    I dig it!

  576. Fabian Torres says:

    First in line of a fly rig.

  577. Thorel Pierre says:

    The DryBell Vibe Machine promise to capture all the magic and lure of the classic tones with a few extras under the hood. All in a neat little box suitable for any pedal board. The Vibe Machine V1 is definitely one of the better UniVibes I’ve played and with its smaller footprint it will be welcomed with cheering applause to my pedal board. I sold it two years ago, because I had no money, but here is a chance to have a new one in V2! :)

  578. I love vibe effect and I love how Hendrix use it!!

  579. Douglas Black says:

    Seems like a nice pedal, would like to try one live. Right now I’m leaning towards Keeley Monterey, still have try one live as well. My favorite vibe using artist would have to be Hendrix followed closely by Trower

  580. Douglas Black says:

    Seems like a nice pedal, would like to try one live. Right now I’m leaning towards Keeley Monterey, still have try one live as well. My favorite vibe using artist would have to be Hendrix followed closely by Trower

  581. Byron Day says:

    This is the vibe that needs to be on my board. Please.

  582. Matthew Halvatzis says:

    This is definitely the vibe unit I’ve been looking for. For the size and the sound, and the ability to tweak the wave, it’s definitely staying on myboard.

  583. I’m enjoying the V-2. I’m hooking it up to a Disaster Area Micro.Clock to keep it in time with my other time-based effects like the Boss DD-7. Thanks.

  584. Hero Nguyen says:

    i’ve been looking at these pedals before and it’s great to sound like jimi hendrix

  585. awesome uni-vibe style pedal!!

  586. Angel roca says:

    I love the univibe sound, when Steve Lacy played live her definitely had that effect going, I loved the overall wash it provided. Also a few tracks on Frank oceans blond album have that effect. It just always seems to bring out another character out of the guitar. I currently have a warped vinyl, it’s amazing, but it doesn’t quite achieve that overall wash the I really love from the vibe

  587. These tiny boxes you guys are making rock!
    Look stylish and sound great.
    Univibe sounds great for soul, blues, rock.
    Listen to how Doyle Bramhall 2 blends all styles together using one!

  588. For me Hendrix and SRV are the best vibe users so far, but i believe this effect still have a huge range of unexplored creativity

  589. Guilherme Cuccolo says:

    Vibe Machine is a great pedal! Killer tone! I want this pedal on my board!

  590. Dejan Slak says:

    One of the best univibe recreations ever heard. 5 stars

  591. Vibe is the only mod style pedal i use. I want the best!

  592. Mike Klement says:

    This Vibe machine sounds amazing, hope I win it in your giveaway contest, I’ll make great use of it :)

  593. Enrico Antico says:

    Thanks for the review!
    Fantastic sounding pedal – vibe is my no.1 modulation effect and this one seems the most versatile and lively of the ones available today.
    Regards,
    Enrico

  594. Justin Wilson says:

    I love vibrato but I’ve never owned or tried a vibe. Sounds great! And I don’t think it has to be used specifically for blues, etc.

  595. Wow!! A lot of functions! I would use this pedal with my band for sure!!

  596. On my top 2 of the I want it list!
    Amazing tech in a guitar pedal :)

  597. Mark A Van Der Linden says:

    Best “Uni-Vibe” Pedal!

  598. Coach Chris says:

    This is a magical pedal straight from the heart of Hendrix’s sound.

  599. Eric Cox says:

    As usual, a great review and great demo of a great pedal!

  600. James B says:

    Small and to the point. Just how I prefer…

    …err, my pedals.

  601. David Bagyo says:

    The Univibe is one of my favourite pedals of all time. The tap tempo addition makes this one really exciting though.

  602. Yes please, thank you

  603. sam mcbride says:

    I want one!

  604. Beautiful sounding vibe.

  605. Joseph Bertucci says:

    This is a great pedal and would be a great addition to my very minimal pedal board! Thanks for the chance to win.

  606. Vibe Machine sounds killer, I know exactly where I’m putting this in my signal chain

  607. Michael Perkins says:

    Love to put this on my board, Thanks
