    Allow me to repeat myself: You make every pedal you play sound amazing.

    Unfortunately I twiddled the knobs a lot while recording and don't remember exactly where they went. I don't think the center or width knob went any further counterclockwise than noon. The input impedence trimmer is set to its highest.

    I also switched between Chorus and Vibrato mode a few times. This is the first vibe that I've owned that has a vibrato mode that I find useful. I'm not exactly sure what the difference is but it's definitely a lot more useful.

    And thanks for the compliments guys!

    Now THAT is how you use a vibe without sounding like a Hendrix/Trower knock-off.
    You have just sent me up to my space to rock out on my Aquavibe.
    For the excellence of that clip, you get a banana:

    Best Aquavibe clip I've heard yet, and the first one I've heard which sounds like it can compete with my Megavibe. Don't get me wrong, earlier Aqua clips have been fine, but none made me perk my ears up like this one did, and like so many Megavibe clips have done.

    I had just about settled on my Megavibe, but I may have to get an Aqua after all when my name comes up on the list, which should be soon. Then I can really decided once and for all.

    A FoxRox Hot Silicon. Dave Fox doesn't just make the best vibes. :D

    Now you're really messing with me. I have a Hot Silicon sitting on the floor next to the Aqua at this moment. For some reason I don't sound quite as good as you when I play it. :AOK

    I kind of feel like Mel Gibson's character in Conspiracy Theory. He couldn't resist the compulsion to buy a copy of Catcher in the Rye whenever he came across one. I'm like that with good fuzz pedals. No matter how redundant they are I can't resist a good fuzz pedal when I find one at a decent price, and I have a whole mess of them.

    But in the end I keep going back to the Hot Silicon for just about everything.

    Great playing!
    I love my MicroVibe for the same kinds of tasty leads. I just don't play them quite as well as you do. :D

    The basic sound, to my ears, is quite similar to the MicroVibe. But the thing that really knocks me out about the Aqua is the controllable speed. It's so expressive!

    Great pedal, awesome clip!

    Great clip man, thanks for that. I agree I love the Hot Si Fuzz, I'm just beginning to scratch the surface of it and the Aqua.

    Do you mind giving a bit of info on your amp and recording setup? Mostly curious what mic you used on the guitar....

    Thanks! Actually it's an Axe-FX recorded direct. No amp, no mic, not much of a recording setup (just the S/PDIF out on the Axe to the S/PDIF in on a basic EMU soundcard). The Axe is modeling a Marshall JTM-45 (quite amazingly well if you ask me) and, I think, a vintage marshall cab and a newer Mesa Boogie cab with a different mic on each. Probably a Royer on the Mesa and an SM58 on the Marshall.
