Like it says on the box, this is a vibe pedal. Amazing wobbly tones can be had from it. It is different than most vibe pedals and I think it is a simulation of an actual vibe but it sure sounds great.

Speed and intensity controls are typical for vibe pedals, the mix control certainly isn't and this is what I really like about this pedal. Great work Danelectro!!

When you switch it on, it actually takes a bit of time before it actually is on. This does not bother me because I have it in a looper so it's always on, I just switch on/off the loop.

UTILIZATION

There are a lot of cool vibe pedals out there and I own(ed) a bunch of them. There's a lot of discussion going on on the internet about vibe pedals but in the end, the sound is what matters.

Setting this one up is easy, set your speed and intensity with the mix all the way up. BTW, I think that unlike trems and delays, the speed on a vibe should NEVER match the tempo of the song. When you have the speed and intensity dialed in, dial back the mix control a bit. You will notice that the wobble won't stand out as much so turn the intensity up a notch. Why would you do this? Well, it will make the vibe work better in the mix. A lot of people like dark sounding vibes because they sound great when playing alone but when you are playing with a band, the wobble might get lost in the mix. The mix control allows you to dial back some dry tone and turn up the intensity which lets your vibe just work better.

SOUND QUALITY

The vibe sounds fantastic, in fact, it replaced one from a well-known boutique builder because it just sounds so good in the mix. I'm not using it all the time obviously but when I do, it's hard to stop using it. I can get a great vintage vibe tone out of it, think Hendrix, Trower but you can easily get a more phaser-like, more modern tone from it.

Thanks to the mix control, I also find that the vibe works really well with humbuckers without getting to muddy. The mix control gives you clarity and that's what you need, clarity and fat tone!

OVERALL OPINION

I know that it is far from being vintage correct and some of the pedal snobs won't even look at it but bottom-line is the sound and that is pretty darn fantastic.
