Best sounding, smallish, bang-for-the-buck Vibe pedal?

I used a Dunlop Rotovibe for many years and it did a convincing job (imho) for a decent price. That said, I've recently been trying other vibes... Sweet Sound MoFaux, Fulltone Dejavibe 2, and Fulltone Mini Dejavibe. The MoFaux was great but, like the Rotovibe, a bit more on the phaser side than vibe clone (again, imho). Either of those would be solid choices, though I find I'm prefering the more expensive vibes now that I've tasted the "forbidden fruit".

:AOK

I like my vibe right after my wah, but I don't use any dirt pedals, the Rockerverb's Dirty channel sounds too good!

...Voodoo Lab Micro Vibe is what you want, no question, about $110-115 used (maybe a tad less) in mint shape...

I've been very happy with the lovepedal magicboy, It's not a true vibe, but sounds close enough for my purposes.

The Dano chicken salead also sounded good, but I could never get it to work with a battery, it had to have the power supply.

Check out the new Mojo Hand pedal from the folks at Tone Factor called the Luna. It's a Univibe style vibe. There's a pic on the forum section of the Tone Factor web site. Looks sweet! They make nice stuff that doesn't break the bank.

I like the Phase 90. Gets close enough and can be had pretty cheap.

I'll second the Voodoo Lab Micro Vibe. Really good sounding unit for the $$.

As far as placement in your signal chain... there's no hard and fast rules and a lot will depend upon your rig and the tone you are going for.

To my ears, vibe's sound more swirly/swampy and more Hendrix/Trower like when placed near the beginning of your chain and before any dirt, fuzz or drive pedals.

When placed after dirt/drive pedals the vibe sounds more phaser-like to me.

Another big +1 for the MoFaux; I picked one up recently and I love it, although I'm not a vibe "connoisseur"...

The Tonefactor Nebula is a great phaser (I have one on my main board), but it's more subtle, and doesn't have the sparkle & "throb" of the MoFaux.

I have a PH-350 phaser...looking for a real vibe.

Sorry about that, I should've used a quote; I was responding to Amphead777's suggestion to try a Nebula. My point was that I like it as a phaser, but don't find it very "vibe-ish." :)

If you are looking for a $29 vibe and want these tones (as played by our very own "rotren" here on TGP)

Get a Dano Chicken Salad.

I have one and it satisfies my Vibe needs (just a couple of Hendrix, Trower, Pink Floyd tunes) very well. I run it in front of dirt and its sounds really nice. I have been a Vibe fanatic for alot of years and this little plastic box with bird nest wiring is alot of fun.

FYI: Chicken Salad will ONLY do vibrato NOT chorus
