Vibeful vibrato that sounds like nothing else in the guitar effects universe!
The DOD FX22 VibroThang Pedal takes a sweet-sounding vibrato, adds a selectable amount of independent phasing and a dash of regeneration, and gives you those crazy VibroThang effects. Plus, the phasing adds a Leslie-sounding color to your guitar's sound. This DOD effects pedal is great for rockabilly, country, or classic rock. Uses optional PS200R power supply.

I bought this expecting vibrato and got tremolo. Although use varies, vibrato usually means variation in pitch whereas tremolo means variation in volume. The so-called Vibrato Thang delivers tremolo. So beware. Nonetheless, once I realized what I had, I fell for the clean crisp shimmering tremolo sound (particularly when I tried it on the opening of Yes's "Roundabout"). I have added it to my DOD digital delay as my rough-and-tumble bare bones set-up for solo jazz guitar. The Vibrato Thang and delay interact in interesting ways. Placing the delay second can easily cancel out or obscure the tremolo effect. So, I found it works better -- at least for my purposes -- to put the Vibrato Thang at the end of the effects loop. I do not usually use the phase shift but it does work well with the tremolo and provide some useful options without a lot of extra gear. Two effects in one inexpensive pedal offers an excellent value.The optional power supply is not a good value and needlessly large compared to other DOD power supplies that I have. Of course, using a better power supply will void the warranty. However, for many users the difference in price may well outweigh the possible cost of repair times the probability of failure that the warranty actually covers.
Fun, underrated pedal, which can yield some interesting sounds. It can create straight vibrato sounds all the way up to very warbly tone with wah effects and some lesli-ish tones. Worth having and really great for lounge type blues and jazz.
- Was this a gift?:
I was looking for a swirly sort of effect to add color to some of my band's intros. Somehow not realizing that that could be attained by a chorus pedal, I bought this. I don't use the actual vibrato effect as much as I use the phaser (doppler) that DOD has built into this pedal. It sounds nice and by turning the speed and depth down I can get a chorusy sound. It is also lots of fun to play around with, I know it opens doors to all sorts of cool effects in songs.
Though this is a guitar pedal, i use it on keyboard. It really helps out on my Fender Rhodes sample. Great effect, whether you play guitar or keyboard. Value absolutely rocks too.
This pedal just adds a little extra somethin' to my tone. I don't use it for wacky vibrato effects, just subtle depth and interest. I've gotten so attached to it that when I don't use it, I feel like something's missing. I also like to run a mic through it sometimes for a vocal effect. And everyone seems to love the way the Boss pedals are built, but I gotta say, I honestly prefer the way this one is made. It's very solid and I love the knobs.
This little pedal is by far one of the more unique pieces in my arsenal. When the speed and doppler controls are raised, it produces a leslie type effect that mirrors high dollar modulations. also, when combined with delay and another modulation, the sound is very etherial and different. i have to say this is a very versatile pedal, either for rockabilly, jazz, rock, metal, etc., it will not let you down.
OK, I've owned a few dod pedals before, and they either broke or the effect just sucked. This pedal, on the other hand, shocked me when i got it. At first i plugged it straight into the amp, and it didnt sound to great. but then i tried putting it thru the effects loop and i hit the jack pot! the effect is perfect and just what i was looking for...but, on the other hand, i know dod pedals and their construction. i know w/ enough use and gigs, it will break... good thing i only use it for one part in one song...
I really like the Vibrothang. The Dopler control gives a cool faux Leslie effect to the tone. I especially like it for overdriven solos and for clean fingerpicking. The Vibrothang is a sweet Tremolo, with a bit of Leslie and a touch of Phaser thrown in for good measure. I like it!
