    The Fulltone MDV2 Mini-Deja'Vibe 2 is an effect pedal true to the original 1960s Univibe circuit, including the most important parts: the photocells—100% Fulltone-designed.

    Real estate is precious, especially on your pedalboard, but the lush organic sounds of a perfect "vintage Univibe clone" are a necessity. They are now attainable in a space no bigger than a standard wah-wah pedal: the Fulltone Mini-Deja'Vibe 2—MDV-2 for short. This chorus pedal from Fulltone has a Vintage Cream powdercoated finish with oxblood lettering and a blue LED that throbs to the beat of its asymmetrical rhythm. The Mini-Deja'Vibe pedal's dual pot gives you access to all speeds from slowest to fastest, all with a perfect sweep and no abrupt speed changes.

    Power the Fulltone MDV2 Mini-Deja'Vibe 2 pedal with the supplied 9V DC adapter or any pedalboard power supply on the market.

      Issue that could not be overcome...

      By Clarkevader

      from Texas

      Comments about Fulltone MDV2 Mini-Deja'Vibe 2 Guitar Effects Pedal:

      The other issue that it may have had was that the Vintage/Modern switch may have been wired backwards but Im not positive about that one. Anyway, the pedals probably awesome, but I just couldnt get it to work for me. No harm done, Musiciansfriend gave me no trouble on the issue.
      I cant say much on this one because I didnt have it very long, but it seemed to have more options than anything else I found. Some of it didnt seem to be that usable, but again I didnt have it long. The pedal is big and heavy, so if your low on pedalboard space this might be an issue.
      Build quality seemed to be good, and parts seemed to be solid. I think this pedal may have had two problems though, one that mattered, and one that really didnt. The one that mattered; The on off switch was noisy and came with a loud "pop" when turned on or off. The pop got louder when I would turn up the amp, and was twice as loud as the Guitar. This would never do on a big stage with a pro PA system. I sent it back for a replacement to see what that would do. I also hit up Fulltone to see if they had any ideas. They got back to me pretty quick, but just said something must have happened to it after it left their shop and to just work it out with the Dealer. I got the second one in, and got the same "pop", so its probably just a Deja Vue thing, and its reaction to the front of the amp I was using. Its not practical from a performance perspective to run effects anywhere else but into the front of your amp. I have to keep it simple on set up for time's sake. It could have been a reaction to the amp, but it was something that I couldnt live with as I love the amp. A digital amp might fare better...
      A little pricey, but most Modulation effects are. You really cant pay much less for a Uni Vibe effect, and this one has the most options I saw. The ability to control the speed on the fly was a big selling point.

      Flexible and tastefully done

      By Crybaby

      from Los Angeles

      Comments about Fulltone MDV2 Mini-Deja'Vibe 2 Guitar Effects Pedal:

      Smokin' product, great value, no issues. Get one.
      This thing is loaded with features, bells, whistles, options and tweaks. I went through a variety of sounds until I settled on a gooey, spongy setting that really complimented the warmth and fatness of my sound. Using the "chorus/vibrato" switch, the "modern/vintage" switch and the intensity and volume knobs, I was able to dial in exactly what I wanted. This is so rare. Another nice feature for me was that the cables plugged in on the sides of the pedal, but twoards the top, which allowed me to put another pedal right next to it.
      This thing is built like a tank. The switches on the side appear to be "protected" from getting sheered off by the knows on the side. What's protecting the knobs? nothing.
      Considering how much UniVibes are, with a speed control, how much space it takes up on the pedal board, the flexibility of this unit with all the settings, and the overall sound quality, this thing is a great deal. I think if they got the price down ever guitar player from San Diego to Maine would have one of these.

      Nearly ideal Uni-Vibe clone

      By John Allen

      from my home

      Comments about Fulltone MDV2 Mini-Deja'Vibe 2 Guitar Effects Pedal:

      The only minor quibble I have with the product is, when used on an SKB pedalboard or on a carpeted surface, clicking with your heel to disengage the effect can, on occasion, not work on the first try.
      I had a Dunlop reissue Uni-Vibe. That's "had" (past tense) because I gave the Dunlop to a friend as soon as I tried the Fulltone MDV2. The controls are similar but the result is "instant Hendrix/Trower/Gilmour." The Fulltone's effect is as lush and rich as a vintage unit without any of the noise. Plus, with the effect and controller pedal integrated into the same unit, there are no extra cables and the pedal takes up much less real estate on your pedal board.

      this is TROWERs VIBE!!

      By stratosaurus

      from N Dallas TX

      Comments about Fulltone MDV2 Mini-Deja'Vibe 2 Guitar Effects Pedal:

      This is the Vibe Trower has been using for yearsThis sounds much better than most give credit, probably their rigs.It has a great vol boost that will OD a tube amp and give you that really cool pushed tone Hendrix used to get as well. I just do not like Vibes in front of OD or gain, ruins it for me and every box responds different. I like into the amp like Hendrix and the old Trower stuff. All vibes respond different to where you put them and with what you use them with. At this price this is cheaper than several others that either do not have the classic photo-cell circuit or merely mimic the univibe. This is the real deal, and fully modern tech and quality components.

      Nice pedal ....with two hitches

      By J blues

      from FL

      Comments about Fulltone MDV2 Mini-Deja'Vibe 2 Guitar Effects Pedal:

      The Good things:This pedal produces those very unique 60-70's classic psychedelic sounds you may be after(think : Trower, Hendrix, Pink Floyd and more) that can be set anywhere from subtle to strong. It has a very strudy design built to last. I agree, I will probably not use the Vibrato much either but the Chorus setting is great. Set the intensity and select Vintage or Modern then hit the rate via the footpedal. It also plays "very" nicely when combined with other effects.The maybe not so good:Like many other true analog pedals it will pick up RFI /EMI ( radio and electromagnectic interference) Personally I live in an area where an AM radio station transmits at high output 8 hours a day (I called them on the phone as its clear as a bell in my amps output) so I can only use this pedal before or after certain hours. No amount of shielding will work...I have tried. So check your area before buying it is a suggestion or if you have other old school pedals you'll know. Note: The Fulltone Wha picks it up even more. Also the heel switch does make a clicking sound through the amp when engaging or disengaging the effect so if you are recording you may just want to leave it on like some do with a Wha. The heel switch is also a little touchy, maybe it can be adjusted but I have not tried this yet.Other stuff:No batteries but - It will power up nicely using a 9VDC regulated power supply pedal board or the included wall wart. I believe it steps is up to 18VDC inside for extra punch.Fulltone tech support is OK and responds via email but the interference issue is just the way it goes for some. I keep this pedal because I am a big Robin Trower fan and this nails it - I Hope this review helps you.

      Great Pedal

      By Dave-y7fAl

      from Utah

      Comments about Fulltone MDV2 Mini-Deja'Vibe 2 Guitar Effects Pedal:

      I've been on the search for a good vibrato pedal. I caught a demo of this online and had to have one so I got it. I've never heard an original uni-vibe so I'm basing this review simply off of how this pedal performs.First the looks of the pedal are awesome. I love the vintage look and feel. It's built like a tank as well. The tredle on my pedal was a bit tight, but that can be adjusted if need be.The sound that comes out of this pedal is quite impressive. I wouldn't say the pedal is worth the price but it's definitely going to make it on my pedal board. I'll probably use it to add some extra "magic" to my clean tones.My favorite setting thus far is Chorus on the Modern setting. You get a good transparent pulsing sound with a lot of low end. Vintage mode seems to concentrate on the higher frequencies, although reading the manual it states the complete oposite. The Vibrato setting seems to give a more warbly effect in the tone, it introduces quite a bit of pitch modulation on the pulse, like your guitar is drunk and trying to keep from falling down. I probably wont use that effect as much. Overall I'll get a lot of use out of the pedal and it is in the list of top pedals I own. Very happy with the purchase.I would suggest that if you are in the market for a cheaper good sounding simple and small vibrato pedal that you check out Lovepedals Pickle Vibe.In my opinion that pedal gives off a more interesting tone than this pedal.

      Vibe on!

      Comments about Fulltone MDV2 Mini-Deja'Vibe 2 Guitar Effects Pedal:

      I have used this pedal and currently have the Mini Dj Vibe (non stereo) on my board. There are certain pedals that give off an audio pheromone.. This is that kind of pedal. The Holy Grail is another one for me.. Hard to explain but there is no denying the Dj Vibe, which is the living Univibe with true bypass and stereo are deep and primordial. I like the mini pedal as it has the large knob (always a good thing) to dial in your speed and a small footprint. For most vibe you have a set speed for the entire song. So the pedal is a waste to me. I also have the Eventide Modfactor on my board which has an excellent leslie/vibe sound which allows for slow up and down speed changes but it just isn't as organic as this baby and the Mod doesn't have the big knob to micro or macro adjust (you can use an adjustment seperate pedal).So if you want the full on look of Jimi's full foot pedal Univibe then this is it. But if you want the same vibe with a lot less real estate and a big knob(Jimi was famous for this) go the mini dj vibe in stereo!

      Finally...

      By BooDaddy

      from Alabama

      Comments about Fulltone MDV2 Mini-Deja'Vibe 2 Guitar Effects Pedal:

      I have been looking for a good vibe for a long time. The best things about this pedal are being able to switch between vintage and modern, the volume control, and general quality of build and sound. It can do everything from subtle chorus to throbbing Hendrix/Trower. If you are like me and use very few pedals/effects, this is worth spending the money on. It sounds best before anything else in the chain.
