I just purchased a MicroVibe having read the reports of it being a bit dark sounding. I knew what I was getting into but I was looking for a fairly inexpensive vibe pedal with simple controls and top jacks that could be powered from a 100mA tap on the PP2+. The MicroVibe checks all these boxes and the online demos didn't sound too bad. Maybe I got a dud but mine is pretty much unusable. Even with the intensity turned all the way down to where there's little to no audible vibe effect, as soon as you engage the pedal it's like there's a low-pass filter set at about 400Hz. It's very pronounced and completely kills the tone of my guitar. Additionally, when the MicroVibe is engaged, it makes my fuzz pedal that follows it (MJM Britbender) very noisy. I tried reversing the order of the fuzz and vibe but it was no help. Neither pedal sounded good in that configuration. I also tried powering the MV with a battery instead of the PP2+. No difference. Finally, I swapped in a DryBell Vibe Machine and it was night and day. Beautifully clear and present vibe sound, no loss of high frequencies, and no issues with my fuzz whatsoever. I really want to like this pedal so the question is, has anyone successfully modded their MicroVibe (by JHS or otherwise) to where it sounded noticeably better? if so, who did the mod and what was better about it?
