DryBell Unveils the Vibe Machine V3

DryBell is pleased to announce the latest evolution of their highly praised modern classic: The Vibe Machine V-3!

The main difference between V-3 and V-2 is in the modulation EQ. V-2 modulates just a slight part of your main tone (mid-range focused modulation), while V-3 blends in nicely with your main tone and modulates it without changing the EQ. V-3 has a wider modulation and brings you more depth. V-3 has its own colorful magic going on.


There are 6 'set and forget' side trimmers:

  • CHORUS (adjusts the 'chewiness' and depth of vibe modulation)
  • GRIT (overall presence of the V-3)
  • CUSTOM (adjusts the input impedance)
  • SYM and RANGE (define the light bulb bias and character/response of the Vibe movement)
  • VOLUME (boosts your volume above and beyond unity gain)

  • CANCEL function (gives you the specific sounding bypass tone of the original Uni-Vibe)

Can an entry-level modeler hang with the big dogs?

Excellent interface. Very portable. Nice modulation tones.

Some subpar low-gain dirt sounds. Could be a little more rugged.

The allure of portability and sonic consistency has become too much to ignore for some guitarists, making smaller digital modelers more appealing than ever.

"'If I fall and somehow my career ends on that particular day, then so be it," Joe Bonamassa says of his new hobby, bicycling. "If it's over, it's over. You've got to enjoy your life."

For his stylistically diverse new album, the fiery guitar hero steps back from his gear obsession and focuses on a deep pool of influences and styles.

Twenty years ago, Joe Bonamassa was a struggling musician living in New York City. He survived on a diet of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and ramen noodles that he procured from the corner bodega at Columbus Avenue and 83rd Street. Like many dreamers waiting for their day in the sun, Joe also played "Win for Life" every week. It was, in his words, "literally my ticket out of this hideous business." While the lottery tickets never brought in the millions, Joe's smokin' guitar playing on a quartet of albums from 2002 to 2006—So, It's Like That, Blues Deluxe, Had to Cry Today, and You & Me—did get the win, transforming Joe into a guitar megastar.
