It’s been a looong hot summer (still is..) but we managed to complete the very first batch of our newest pedal. It was a really complex process all along but we had so much fun doing it, we learned quite a few new tricks and we’re very proud of what we did.
There are lots of other (smaller) things that need to be finished, but we are quite confident that our new pedal will see the light at the end of this summer.
We know that some of you are eagerly awaiting our new product, but the clock is ticking.. please be patient just a little bit more 🙂
Just to briefly inform you that we have a certain quantity of B-stock Vibe Machines V-2 to offer you with 12% off. Pedals are absolutely functional, brand new, never used, equal to a standard model.
What makes them ‘not-A-stock’ are slight cosmetic imperfections, mostly flaws in the powder coating. So, you still get a great sound and full DryBell warranty. Grab one while you still can, quantities are limited.
As you may know, we’re preparing a brand new pedal for you and we’re getting closer each day to make it happen.
Right now it’s in the pre-production phase, so it shouldn’t be very long..
This picture is taken after a very long weekend at the very end of the new demo filming.. we’re missing some key members in here but it was very late..
You can expect some fine tunes in the new pedal demo from these guys and that’s just a part of it.. so stay tuned 🙂

His view on the Vibe Machine:
“As a player that is heavily influenced by the inspiration and emotion of the gear I play, the Vibe Machine always gives good vibes! Rich sound from a subtle to over the top effect if needed, this little compact versatile DryBell pedal always delivers!”

Jacob Petersen spent the first 24 years of his life in Aarhus, Denmark. Although a late start on the guitar, at the age of 17, Jacob has quickly developed a reputation as a world class guitarist/musician. A move to the US to further develop his playing has led to gigs through out the US, Canada and Europe with Curtis Salgado, Javina Magness and even a friendship with Steve Miller.
In 2005, the Salgado band toured opening for Steve Miller. Steve was so impressed with Jacob’s playing and feel on stage that he invited him to sit in at the Mandalay Casino in Las Vegas. In 2011, Jacob became an official member of The Steve Miller Band.
His view on the Vibe Machine:
“I’m blown away with how inspiring The DryBell Vibe Machine V-2 is to play and how versatile it is while also being super simple to use. I’ve had uni-vibe pedals on my board before but always removed them shortly after, because they’re always huge and has a limited range of use which make them inefficient and impractical on most pedal boards. Not so with the DryBell! It has a unimaginable small footprint, uses a regular 9 volts without a loss in fidelity, all the controls work in perfect harmony, and the ramp feature with the external foot switch is just icing on the cake. I also find it fantastic for funk rhythm parts, it’s so textured and juicy, while cutting through the mix no problem. I LOVE this pedal!”
