BBE

From lush to lunacy: Mind Bender delivers killer analog chorus and vibrato.

Earning the Guitar World Platinum Award, Mind Bender is two pedals in one, with an authentic Bucket Brigade Delay circuit serving up supremely lush, warm chorus and the ultimate in classic vibrato. Inspired by the inimitable guitar wrangling of Will Ray and created by Paul Gagon, Mind Bender warps the sonic boundaries from gentle pulsation to spaced-out ray gun effects.

Mind Bender delivers the consistency and ruggedness that are the hallmark of BBE pedals, designed for guitarists whose gigs are as demanding as their ears. It’s got a beefy mil-spec circuit board with big, fat signal traces, 1% metal-film resistors and high-voltage poly caps, all backed by robust, true hardwire bypass.

When you want the finest vintage analog chorus and vibrato experience without the headaches, Mind Bender is the one.

      Comments about BBE Mind Bender Vibrato/Chorus Guitar Effects Pedal:

      My only regret was that I should've bought an extra pedal or two to keep in my travel cases as I use chorus a lot with different instruments. Next time this deal shows up I'm getting ON it!

      Comments about BBE Mind Bender Vibrato/Chorus Guitar Effects Pedal:

      Awesome pedal. Most transparent chorus pedal I have ever used. Solid build also. I have a chorus on my Boss ME-70. It is nothing like this. This unit can give sounds that are subtle to surreal. It is the kind of tool that really does add to one's creativity. I am currently using this pedal near full-time and just dialing it in and out to get the sound I love.

        Comments about BBE Mind Bender Vibrato/Chorus Guitar Effects Pedal:

        I like the pedal...hard to dial in subtle effects. after 1/4 up, the depth control is way over the top, just silly movie music stuff. with the depth down, the chorus effect is very nice with clean chords. chorus is better than vibrato on this unit. I like to find a subtle coloring then leave it.

          Comments about BBE Mind Bender Vibrato/Chorus Guitar Effects Pedal:

          Got this guy on the stupid deal and at this price everyone that plays an instrument with effects should own one. You can dial in some great light vibrato and add some dirt or fuzz to get that sweet swirly bluesy Hendrix/Trower thing going on. Flip it over to chorus and get anything from Police to Nirvana and beyond. Both the vibrato and chorus have sweet, lush, full, rounded sounds. Neither is spiky or harsh sounding just smoothness all day. If you dial in either the knobs past 12 o'clock things get interesting. With a looper a delay and this guy dialed way past 12 o'clock I've created some absolutely insane sounds. It's the most versatile vibrato/chorus I've played. I found for my setup it likes to live in this arrangement... Looper> Dirt> Compressor> Mind Bender> Boost > Wha > Delay. It's seems to like the dirt first and on a clean setting it loves the compressor first. I found that the boost sharpened the top end if placed before the Mind Bender but my dirt did not. I know my personal set up is not the "standard" signal chain for effects, but it sounds the best to my ears. Everyones gear is different and so will be chained together differently. If you're even considering buying this pedal BUY IT NOW!!! You won't be disappointed.

            This pedal sounds thin. The trem is unusable, the chorus acts more like a trem than a chorus.

                I live for the deal and this is no exception. Stupid deal of the day and I really had no use for the thing but for the price....I'll play...I currently use a Line 6 X3 live and wanting to start buying separate pedals but not wanting to spend mucho $$$$ for it. I bought this thing and was amazed at how versatile it is. Chorus to almost phaser sounding vibrato. Which reminds me of what I don't like about pedals. Relativism, describing with accuracy but not always achieving the goal. Point being....Well made, good sound quality (and for me cheap). I would buy it at full price if it broke tomorrow. Two thumbs up!!!

                Well built pedal. Chorus sounds better than vibrato (to me anyway). Easy to dial in the sound you want and is QUIET when turned off.

                  This pedal is very well made like all the BBE pedals..Easy to use and sounds great..The "Chorus" does seem to have more fell than the "Vibrato" but that does sound good too..
