        If there is an issue with hiss then its probably in the original pedal. Those clones were supposed to be the most legit thing they had done at that point. I ordered one to check out. I think Im going to have to bump my DIY board up to a bigger size.

          Huh. I was gonna get a BBE Mind Bender, but maybe I should go for this. Any thoughts?

            If you've got the soldering knowledge to complete the kit and an interest in the sound it produces, I can't imagine steering you away from it. Beyond that, these things are practically guaranteed to maintain their retail value, and tend to sell for a bit more than the kit itself when they pop up on eBay.

            Me on the other hand? I'm waiting for the 919

              I hear its one of the more difficult builds. I was gassing over it a couple years ago but quickly got over it. Now I am going to see if I can build funds toward one.

              The Mindbender is a great pedal for the big bends, but not near the quality of the BYOC.
              I would say they are very smart to do this, but only 100? They should be gone by the end of the week.
              But where are the clips?

                I know, right? I was half tempted to get one myself to put some clips up on Youtube or something. There was one of these on eBay last week that I thought about picking up, but I couldn't find any good clips for the thing. Or even the VB-2 itself, for that matter.

                  Is the VB-2 based off the CE-1 vibrato? love the sound of the CE-1 and really wanna get the sound without having to sell myself on the street

                    A built unit with a nice paintjob just sold for under a hundy on ebay.

                    FYI.

                      Should I be interested in this since I have the Diamond. I've always wanted a VB-2.

                        I have a diamond and the red witch empress so there was no reason to buy the BYOC but I felt like some DIY vibrato action.

                          Well I never ended up pulling a trigger on a diamond so I think I'll give this guy a try. It should be a fun build.

                              I'm more that satisfied with my Diamond, plus I couldn't build something like this. I find though, that as much as I like the effect, it's probably my least used effect.
