    First off thanks Sean for letting me check one out......

    Very slick lookin folded black case....

    Was floored with the tone of this

    Ive had

    MJM Sixties vibe
    3 Gold Deja Vibes
    White Deja Vine
    Black box Dejavibe serial 135 i think
    2 Mojovibes

    The LP vibe sounded great, Sean even got the throb right, The watery sound is there also. Was very suprised as I was expecting more of a phaser sound. Even with dirt it swallowed the lead notes just like a real one.

    The size and battery use make it very handy.

    Very pleased with this one, it really sounds like a vibe.

    Does it have a DC jack? If so then Love Pedal should be getting another customer.

    No DC, no LED. No worries though, if you have a power supply you can use one of the battery clips.

    turtleheadblues, how does it compare to the mojo and deja vibes? Is it better, equal, worse, different?

    Intensity control is a trimpot inside I believe.
    Theres one on my way so I still have to check it out :)
    battery is ok enough
    I never use vibrato anyway (not on my deja as well)
    Not a true vibe cirquit?..I dont care if it sounds ok :)
    The size is a great plus in my occasion :)

    Did somebody have the opportunity to compare the Lovepedal and MoFaux vibe by the way?

    I'm still deeply in love with my Ultravibe, but my pedalboard is getting pretty full...

    Jero, did you have the Deja as well, before the Mojo?

    moi aussi...

    i must have 6 vibes, and right now, the small, compact, wee little LovepedalV is the only one i'll use. sure, i miss the expression pedal, but i love the tones, and the fact that it uses sooo little precious pedalboard-estate.

    course, i like how fat and thick it is. makes my others seem anemic. not the most transparent, but on gig, cuts and is as present as a 200 lbs. county fair pig. :cool:

    course, havent tried Bob Sweet's new incarnations... ;)

    I have the Ultra, not the Mojo. :)

    Before the Ultra I indeed had a mini Dejavibe, one of the 500 Fulltone 'customshop' units. My main grief with the Deja was the cutting of mids and boosting of highs, and the overall volume drop. Whenever I kicked it in I was lost in the band mix. As I understand newer Deja's have this problem fixed. With the Ultra, I have the volume around 8, which is about unity gain, so there's actualle a volume boost possible if you would want that.

    I opened mine up, experimented with the trimpot for a minute and then promptly set it back to where Sean had it.

    To my ears it sounds phaser-ish. I'm not a big vibe user so it works great for me.
