    I believe there is a trim pot inside where the throb comes from. Not sure how safe it is to adjust it.Maybe someone else will chime in.

    There is a trim pot inside which you can turn to increase the depth of the modulation. With it on, you'll want to turn the trim pot so that the light gets brighter. Does the vibrato work correctly?

    also, this might sound too obvious, but check your power source

    I notice when I put fuzz or distortion in front of the vibe it sounds more phasey or chorusy. I prefer a cooking amp or dirt after a vibe. Try that if you have not already
