    Fell in love with the vibe on an old Fender Concert, actually thinking of buying the amp just for the vibe!
    So swampy and lushy warm.
    Any tube driven effects for that tone or not?

    Boy thats a hard one. Ive been lookin myself. theres the area 51 but it kinda retro fits into a amp. If there isnt a tube unit someone should make one! Good Question!:AOK

    I know what you mean. I didn't use a vibe pedal because it lacks the "lushy"-ness of the tube driven vibe.

    However, I use the vibe on the Carr Rambler all the time. Lots-a-lushy godness in there.

    I say go for the amp :dude. I think great vibe is worth it. There may be pedals that will get close but you'll always lust for the swamp :crazy

    You mean tremolo? OLCircuits is coming out with one - the Darth Fader. Not sure when it will be out, though.
