I recently was reading a thread on the Amp11 and decided that I would post on the new Vibronaut. I was one of the lucky guys that was able to demo this pedal when Sean at Lovepedal officially released it. That alone made me like this company, the fact that the guy was willing to send out his new design to me was pretty cool. Now to be clear, my experience with vibe pedals is limited, but I know what I like/want out of a Vibe pedal, and what a lot of people here want as well.... That big massive low end thwamp/throb that makes this effect so unique. Sean I felt did this to a T. The one complaint I've heard a lot from guys is the lack of throb when the similar designs are overdriven. Again this pedal addresses that as well, through the use of the hi and low eq controls. This helps out a lot. But for me personally, It wasn't enough though, it still lacked that oomph that makes this effect. Then I opened it up, the pedal has 3 internal trimmers, to adjust the offset of throb, the gain level of the modulation, and a blend control. I messed around with these, finding that the blend and offset were best set in their default position. But the gain control is where its at on this thing! Once I turned this up, I was able to here MASSIVE throb, keep in mind that When set the pedal for this, It was going into a comp, a Visual Sound Jekyll and Hyde, (with both channels engaged, and fairly hot) and finally running into the front end of a heavily distorted Mesa Dual Recto. I think that makes it safe to say, that this pedal will handle any kind of gain and still be able produce that magical sound that we all love. I came away thoroughly impressed with this pedal, and its build quality. After talking back and forth with Sean, I find him to be a respectful builder, who wants to make great products that everyone will enjoy, his work is quality, and his business attitude is excellent, I look forward to doing business with him in the future, and hope to see other great designs from him in the future.
