    I was originally going to help Dustin with sales and marketing when he was first building his Vibes. Suddenly he decided to work with Bob Feldman and that was fine with me, no big deal.
    I felt a little dissed but.. what the heck, I have a lot going on so it didn't hurt my feelings too badly.

    The bottom line is that I would get a Vibe from Dustin if you can.
    I have his vibe on my board. He is a good guy, knows vibes and that is the one to have.

    I'm so glad I went with the Unique Vibe instead. Super high quality, dead-on replica, custom colors, great service from the one-man show (Jim), no BS marketing, and no drama.

    So the Sir Henry is the best sounding ?
    And the best dude to support by the sounds

    No center control to put that pluse right where it should be and I'm out. Preamp sound exact on these but it's not the offset I like to hear, a bit too straight. Captain coco until something improves.

    I have one of Dustin's original vibes. It is richer and thicker sounding than any vibe I have had. Mine is in a project box so its way before the Sir Henry stuff.. but it is the most liquid and throbbing vibe I have owned.

    I wanted the Vibe Bro before I read this entire thread. I’m on the fence now. Are people still digging theirs?

    Hilarious/angry thread btw

    I still like mine. Have played with the trim pots and Ab’d it against my 1969 Univibe with good results. It’s on my board because the original is worth too much to take out of the house...

    Still playing the "it's the best" game. Gets tiring after a while.
    Can't be that great. It's seems Doyle swapped it out for a real paper-weight clone.
