Vibrato - who loves it and what do you love?
 
I love a good vibrato. Such a great sound.

Got the plug-ins, but I want the real thing.

Got any suggestions? Not looking for an amp with it, just a clean, warm vibrato.

Lovetone Wobulator. Unbelievably warm and rich sounding, and you can trigger it from a drum machine to have it playing perfectly in time with your tracks kfhkh

Beware though - unlike most Lovetone stuff it is NOT true bypass.

The Boss VB-2 guitar pedal if you can find one...

fender vibroverb rules (use with telecaster for amazing crossing the desert vibe)

as for a pedal i love the rotoshphere (hughes and kettner) it can run in mono or stereo (stereo provides rad panning/phasing tricks) is simple to use (two modes: fast and slow) and is a tube unit with a drive channel. it rules.

id go the the amp though if money isnt an option because you really need a good spring sound too.

I've always really dug the vibrato on the Roger Mayer Voodoo Vibe pedal, it is quite versatile too...

I have a Voodoo Vibe as well, which gets a lot of use.

By the way, are we talking about real vibrato here, or what Fender amps refer to as vibrato, which is tremolo?

strictly speaking - vibrato is changing pitch - tremelo is changing amplitude.

i blame fender for inventing tremelo arms on guitars and causing all this confusion.

Electro Harmonix Pulsar, my fave next to a Fender Tube trem. The EH stuff has such great character, it's never an imitation of 'the real thing' like with most flangers/tremolos/etc. The Voodoo Lab stuff for example is hi-quality and well done but it always sounded too 'hifi' or even 'sterile' to me.

The vibrato on the voodoo vibe is really great -- a lot of folks use mine, tho I rarely do. As it happens, it's also my favorite tremolo pedal, so it covers both sides of the confusion . . .

I bought an Ampeg Jet at a pawn shop a few years ago on a whim for about $250. I've used the vibrato on numerous recordings. It's been great (plus it only costs about $40 to replace the EL84s)!

Great stuff! I never even thought about the distinction between vibrato and tremelo.

Looks like I'm on the hunt for a pedal.
