    After all these years. Only yesterday that I get to play with this awesome pedal! Dave Fox really nailed this pedal! Too bad they are no longer made. :(

    The Vibe part is just spectacular!

    That pedal was a Labor of Love.Dave made pennies on that deal.Dave said the Key to getting a good sound on the Provibe, is to keep the Width(Intensity) low to dial in the correct Center setting.Then increase the Width.Width on the Provibe has more range than a Univibe. Max on the Univibe is about 10:00 on the CC2. Typical Center setting is around 11:00 on the provibe.I love the Insert ability

    Any word on whether Mike would produce any of these...very cool and it makes the Octavio real estate justified!!

    What univibe was in there?

    Yeah, I ran across the Mini Jimi a few weeks ago...too f'in cool!

    As for Midtown, yes...they are going out of business...David is getting out of the game. Truly sad IMHO...Midtown has been one of my fav places to shop and to just hang for a long time now. I hate to see it go but I understand.

    Yeah, I have asked about the Mini Jimi myself but I don't think that it's something Mike and crew want to really get into.

    I have thught several times about doing a DIY fuzz/octave/vibe in one box...Im just too lazy plus I really want to just get a CC2 one of these days!

    Oh yeah...David and the boys always treated me well and they were like that from day one!

    I've spent a lot of money in that place over the years and I'm sad to see it go.

    It is the pinnacle of fuzz,vibe,and octave.. ended my search. The vibe alone is worth the price

    I just picked up one myself a month or so ago.

    I'm surprised no one has mentioned how great the fuzz is on this unit. The Hybrid card in mine is a nice Fuzz Face type pedal, and it cleans up well with my rig.

    The best part is the option to try different Fuzz Cards. I haven't tried them out yet, but I am looking forward to auditioning the NKT Germainum Card and the Hot Silicon. After trying all three, I'm hoping to find the best fuzz possible for my playing style and rig.

    Where can you get the Fuzz cards? From Dave? Are those cards still available?

    I got mine here on the emporium. They don't come up often, but they do come up from time to time.

    From what I understand, you can get the hot silicon, and a germanium card from Dave on his site. The NKT Analogman card is not available new - I was lucky to be looking when one popped up.
