After fooling around with Garageband, I have finally determined that I absolutely need a univibe pedal of some sort. I have been looking at the deja vibe and the new ehx good vibes. However, they aren't cheap, so I'm thinking I'll pull a Brian May. Will it be cheaper to build and how much of a pain will it be to put together? I built the tube amp I have now, but I wasn't soldering photocells and using pcb.

they must be pretty hardcore to build with the lamp/photocell setup. i'm quite a uni-vibe fan, recently i picked up the carl martin purple moon. it's pretty spot on the univibe sound and you can foot switch between two preset speeds. i picked one up new for about 99 over here in England.
the test of a good uni vibe is being able to cop those classic tones of glimour, hendrix and trower Wink

Cheapest possible is the Danelectro Chicken Salad, Pickle Vibe and Soul Vibe are not super expensive, a bit above 100$, but a lot more than the Danelectro.

I made vibe pedals based on the DIY Easy Vibe design using LED-LDR couplers. You could never convince me the lamps would be worth the pain.
