I’m a sucker for movement. A little or a lot. I’m enjoying the MDV3 from OP. I think the modern univibe pedal is good. Love the throb.
Most of the differrences in my opinion were in pedals controls, rather than real feeling, I had basically the same feeling. I found it really hard to catch the thing with a mic in front of the speaker, kinda like the reason it's hard to catch the feel of a rotary speaker.
Thanks for doing all that. I didn't read anything first, just played the clips. No. 2 in the first set of 3 and No. 1 in the second set of 3 sound like a Vibe (The Depths).
I can't agree with all pedals having the same 'feeling'. The throb characteristic is definitely the heart to a good Vibe..
I was hesitant at first but it’s actually really good. This falls into the category of pedals with a great second feature because that vibe switch is awesome. I never feel like it’s underwhelming. Great little box.
I bought that MDV3 from a fellow TDPRI member and I sincerely think about going back to the box. It’s a great pedal but the sound isn’t any better to my ears. I am a sucker for treadle pedals!Just thought I mention that you convinced me to pull the trigger on a used Dunlop jhm 3! It's the same circuit as your pedal, but with the Jimi Hendrix 70th anniversary art work on the box. And you know what? I agree with you that it's awsome
@neilybob100 Well I was perusing this thread to brush up on univibes currently popular/available and figured this thread has run its course, and I hijack at times myself (yah I’m a rebel.. ) but the short answer your question is; running two univibes in series is not a good idea.. Regardless of how you set the speed or other parameters of each pedal, the bottom line is you’re going to end up with garbled mush. A traditional uni-vibe is already a very strong effect with a strong unapologetic character that’s almost never subtle. For many the non-subtle nature of just a single unit alters the core dry signal too much to be useable. Think of it like; you’ve got an absolutely fire breathing, wooly, heavily gated fuzz. Now grab another really high gain, bass heavy big Muff or Octave-fuzz and stack the two together. If you hear anything other than noise, feedback and a farting out torn speaker and manage to hear something which resembles your actual guitar playing it’s a miracle!! Haha.. Good Luck!Sorry for highjacking this thread but has anyone ever tried a univibe into ...... a univibe? Maybe one set to slow speed and one set to fast?
