From DryBell: After extensive research and development, you now have the chance to test drive a pedal with authentic and defined vibe sounds in a much smaller enclosure.

The Vibe Machine™ – currently the world's smallest vibe pedal. Even in its little box it retains almost all the features of the classic Uni-Vibe® - small in size, big on sound! When you switch the Vibe Machine on your guitar melts in to a swirling three dimensional space inhabited by chewy vibe harmonics and textures, it's all here from shimmering liquid trebles to throbbing pulse-like waves of bass; a sonic force of beauty that tears down the walls around you!
All our custom photocells are matched with a specially constructed tester which means you really get an exceptional rotating vibe sound.
The Vibe Machine is incredibly practical for every pedalboard due to its small footprint. The Vibe Machine V-1 is almost half the size of other contemporary vibe pedals, this has the significant advantage of allowing you to use two smaller pedals in place of a larger one.
Leslie®, buffers and all the great vibe sound options
When you connect an expression or volume pedal to the Vibe Machine, the oscillation speed can be changed by foot. On top of this, if you use the Leslie® acceleration (internal jumper) option, the oscillations gradually speed up or slow down just as they would with a real Leslie cabinet. This is a completely new option for Vibe pedals, and one you should definitely try. Either way, you have control over the oscillation speed while you play.
TFC™ (Traffic Control) output is active only when the V-1 is turned on. With the TFC link you can turn on and off other pedals on your pedalboard using looper pedals. Please see the Vibe Machine manual or our FAQ section for more details.
The Vibe Machine V-1 offers more features still: for instance, if you prefer a brighter sound, moving the switch to the BRIGHT position will turn on the input JFET buffer, taking over the entire tonal range of your pickups no matter how long your cable is.
Furthermore, if you use longer cables from your pedalboard to your amplifier, you can turn on the output buffer to achieve a cleaner, more defined vibe sound.
Controls the depth and the character of the chorus (vibe) or vibrato sound and it defines the strength and dynamic of the pulsing nature of the effect. A more pronounced pulsing feel starts
from around the 2 o’clock position and onwards. The contour of the intensity knob is custom designed to enable a quick and easy set up of different vibe sounds.
SPEED (pot) 2
The speed knob adjusts the speed pulsations of the vibe (chorus) or vibrato sound. Its size and placement also makes foot control possible.
VOLUME (side trimmer) 3
This trimmer adjusts the level of the output signal. At minimal setting the volume is reduced by 4dB, and the maximum setting gives a slight boost to input signal. So find your preferred effect
volume and leave it. In bypass this trimmer has no effect. To set it please use a small plastic screwdriver.
This toggle switch selects between the classic vibe/chorus sound and the vibrato sound, a very under used part of vibe pedals, this effect can give a great sense of movement when used in
the right way.
Original Uni-Vibe pedals had relatively low input impedance and a warm tone, so for that vintage “Vibe” set the switch to the “ORIGINAL” position. For a brighter tone flip the switch up to
the “BRIGHT” position, this setting turns on the input FET buffer. If the Vibe Machine is the first (or only pedal) in your effect chain this setting will use the entire tonal range of your pickups.
If any other pedal with a similar buffer is placed before the Vibe Machine the BRIGHT/ORIGINAL switch will have no effect.
PEDAL+ (expression pedal jack) 6
For external speed control you can use an expression pedal. Vibe Machine V-1s from serial No. #703 onwards will work with all expression pedals (TRS) with a linear pot (tip to wiper). You can use any expression pedal that has a 5k, 10k, 25k, 50k, 100k or 250k linear pot. Also, you can calibrate the Vibe Machine to work with a specific expression pedal if your expression pedal doesn’t have full speed range from 0% to 100%. This calibration is not necessary if your expression pedal has full resistance range but this instruction is here for such expression pedals that don’t have full resistance range. Please see the wiring diagram on page 2 of this manual. Also, please see additional info about expression pedal models in our FAQ section at drybell.com.
