    Seems like the KR is "the best" but it's crazy expensive. Is the Sweet Sound Ultra Vibe the next best option? I want to have the chorus and vibrato settings.

    Personally I'm going nuts waiting for my Vibe Baby to arrive. I've got high hopes for it.

    I have The Depths now and can't really recomenf it for full on vibe purposes. It makes nice vibe type tones though.

    You'll love the Vibe Baby, man. I have one...and it isnt going anywhere. Most authentic vibe out on the market, imo. Makes the other ones sound like cheap toys.

    I've had the old Dunlop UV1, a Fulltone DV2 and newer black DV1. Recently picked up a Sweet Sound Ultra Vibe 2 and am done looking. Really great vibe.

    Thank goodness someone finally posted a vibe thread. Why did it take so long?

    I have enjoyed a Sweet Sound Mojo Vibe. I'm guessing that this or a Dry Bell are your best bets.

    Drybell Vibe Machine is great. The Classic Amplification Vibe seems to be another great one. I want to try the non treadle version.

    FWIW, if you keep your eye out on Reverb, KR is selling his own stock every once and a while at his original prices. They go extremely quick but I see them every once in a while.

    I've got a big box Mega and love it. I do want to try the Classic Application though as it's much smaller of a box.

    The dunlop UV1 is quite good actually.
    Ive had my fair share of top class vibe's, and love to rock the Effectrode Tube Vibe, but for a cheaper option, albeit not that much easier to power with 18v, it's a great alternative without skimping on tone quality.

    I agree. I listened to a recording I did with mine way back when and did a double take thinking about what I have spent on them since I sold it.

    Sorry. Original Univibe. Me personally, I woulda saved myself a lot of money having just gone for an original to begin with.
