    I rarely miss pedals, but two that I do miss are the Lovepedal Vibronaut (can't beat the features/size), and the Effectrode Tube Vibe. The Effectrode's preamp was so good I'd leave the depth turned off and use it as a slight boost in front of the amp. I think their pedals are pretty hit and miss, but the Tube Vibe/Compressor/Helios are all amazing, imo.

    I just picked one up Reverb for half what they cost in Australia. Very happy! Been using the Mojo Villanova but there is something that I just don't gell with about it. Love the demos of the aqua and can't wait to try it!

    I'm with you on the Mojo Vibe. Call me boring, but it's the only Univibe type pedal I've ever owned.

    I've tried tons of them and there are so many great ones. But I've just never felt the need to get anything else. The SweetSound is just a simple, classic.

    After having one and selling it I went through nearly a dozen others and have now come back to it.

    Would still love to try this one.
    And this one. Fortunately the version of the Vibe Unit I found was an old grey one which is supposed to contain the board originally done by Bob. So in a way I have a mojo vibe.

    The Moon Vibe MkII would get suggested a lot more often if more than a handful of TGP'ers had tried it. It puts the Drybell to shame.

    I did as well. Some very well regarded. Are the lovepedals still made? Mine is going nowhere.

    Have you actually tried both of these pedals; The Moon Vibe MkII and the Drybell Vibe Machine? They're both awesome and I don't think either puts the other "to shame". That's an overstatement.

    At the latest Tota concert -- Paso Robles -- Steve Lukather used an MXR M68 Univibe (for a Bridge of Sights cover and solo) -- sounded massive! So that's the one I would get if I would shop for a Univibe just now.

    Have you tried them both? I have, and that's my opinion. I still have the MKII, and am done w/ my search. In fact, unlike a lot of other pedal comparisons, the tonal difference is big enough to be hard to miss, even on youtube. That, and the symmetry control is a huge plus.
