    My quest for a good, reliable, multi power options, and quiet reverb pedal has left me frustrated so I'm now looking at watery vibes. I'm considering a CC2. Anyone have one that could offer some opinions. I really like Envelope Control Speed (ECS) with the provibe, at least the sound samples off the website. How does it sound in a live rig? Worth the money?

    It really is an excellent pedal - extremely well built and designed very intelligently.

    You can't get a better fuzz or a better vibe than those that are in the CC2, respectively. The octave is excellent, though from what I understand, Dave Fox's own Octron may beat it.

    It's probably not a great deal if you only want the vibe, but if you use fuzz and vibe its tough to beat - and you can swap out the fuzz card with any of 3 or 4 cards - I've tried two of them, which are both excellent.

    It's built like a tank with true bypass, relay based switching-very cool. It has an excellent vibe, a very decent fuzz and an OK Octave. For the same money it'd be hard to put together a board with the equivalent quality, although I'd choose different players myself-modded fuzz face, Fulltone Vibe and Octave.

    I have one and love it. +1 on the above mentioned build quality and Dave is a wicked guy to deal with.

    The vibe is fantastic and I use the ECS all the time as opposed to a speed pedal. I frequently play with the width control all the way down just to give my sound the built in sweetness of the provibe. From watery to weak I think the Provibe is excellent! Fuzz is fantastic too and has moved my Sola Colorsound into the storage closet.

    i had one of them on my desk last week.....!

    correct, built like a tank and also very easy to handle inside!
    A friend gave me his pedal after he use it in europe with the wrong adaptor....and i had to fix it! Pretty cool voltage-doubler circuit! And the fuzz-card feature is an amazing idea!

    sounds freaky and cool! The ProVibe is a killer! Well done!!!

    Cool clip. What fuzz card are you using? Care to reveal the settings of that clip as well? Really excellent.
