Vibe Machine V-3 is released!

01/10/21

Dear folks!

Here at DryBell our 10th anniversary celebrations have just begun and we proudly present a brand new version of the Vibe MachineV-3 is here!

It’s an exceptional sounding Vibe, a bit different from the previous versions with its own unique sound, character and depth.

We are delighted to share this 3rd edition of the Vibe Machine with the World and can’t wait to hear your feedback after you’ve tried it out. 10 years have passed since the release of the first Vibe Machine and we are very proud that our Vibe has found a fond place on so many of your pedalboards around the world.

We’re doing our best to leave our mark in the pedal world.

This is another big and special year for us. Aside from the fact that we’ve just released a very compelling third version of the Vibe Machine, we have also expanded the space of our workshop and hired a new engineer who has seriously strengthened our R&D department. This gave several projects a significant boost, as a result our next unique pedal will be released next year!

But for now, let’s focus on the Vibe Machine V-3!

We wish you a lot of fun with our new creation and we hope you enjoy discovering new sounds in the vast universe of the Uni-Vibe!

Feel free to contact us any time!

Your DryBell team

DryBell Sonic Experience


08/03/21

If you’re already subscribed to our YouTube channel, you may have heard about the newest demo series called “DryBell Sonic Experience“.

The idea behind it is to feature some of our favorite stompboxes from a vast sea of incredible effects working in synergy with our pedals. They may be some unobtainable vintage, or brand new, we love ’em all. Each demo is played and produced by Kruno Domacinovic who has also been the main player in every DryBell demo since 2009. There’s a ton of great combinations and it’s a great world to explore!

Hopefully there will be something for everyone so make sure you’re subscribed to our channel!
Let us know what you think about it and what would you like to hear next in the comments 🙂

Unit67 received a Platinum Award from Guitar World!

21/01/21

Unit67 just received a Guitar World’s Platinum Award, along with a glorious review! 🌟

 

THE KEY TO getting great live guitar tone is by following a similar approach to what an engineer does in the recording studio: using a high-pass filter to cut excess bass, adjusting key EQ frequencies and applying high-quality transparent compression to tighten up the overall sound and bring it forward in the mix. By combining a Rangemaster-style treble booster, versatile EQ section and compression based on the revered Urei/Universal Audio 1176 compressor/limiter, the DryBell Unit67 provides the sweetening functions of expensive studio processing gear in a compact, stageworthy stomp box format.

You can read the whole review in here.

 

The Engine received Premier Gear award!

21/09/20

 

We’re proud to say that The Engine received a great review in Premier Guitar’s October 2020 edition and earned a “Premier Gear” badge! 🌟⚡️🎉

 

“The Engine is a combination of good design, a keen ear for vintage sound and dynamics, and considerable thought for how a modern player might use these tones. Both effects are outstanding, but combined they take the amp-in-a-box to a higher level. And let me tell you, this preamp is loud. It might be one of most powerful and robust gain circuits I’ve ever played.” – Jason Shadrick, Premier Guitar

Earthquake & Coronavirus

30/03/20

We hope you are well and that you’re coping with the current restrictions and measures imposed by our governments because of the coronavirus.

Last week was a living hell in here. Our capital city, Zagreb was hit by its biggest earthquake in 140 years while in coronavirus lockdown.

Luckily, our team is fine and no one got hurt but, unfortunately, one of our team members, Kruno, lost half of his home. You may know him as a guitar player from every DryBell official demo. Needless to say, it’s a bit of a challenge to stay perfectly normal at these times, but we will try to keep our minds busy working and focus on what we do best.

We imposed some safety measures directed by our government, so guys and Martina are working from home while Zvonch is working alone in the DryBell workshop, making sure that everything goes as planned for the release of our newest pedal – The Engine.

Kruno and his family had to temporarily move to another location because staying in their home isn’t safe anymore. They will need to invest a significant amount of money in repairing their home after the quake. We’re taking this opportunity to invite you to join our charity action by giving a small donation to his family. We know that lots of people are going through tough times now, but any small help will be highly appreciated.

Here is a PayPal link that goes directly to his private PayPal account. Thank you all for your generosity in advance!

Stay healthy and well!

Much love 💟

P.S. Just to let you know that DryBell is normally taking orders and all your orders are processed without any delay, usually within 24 hours.

We’re back! :)

27/01/20
We’ve just got back from sunny California and we’re still under impression from this beautiful experience 🌼 From colorful San Francisco, through Anaheim down to mesmerizing waves of San Diego 🌊 In the middle of this road trip, we had 4 days of NAMM Show and met some old and some new friends.
We’d like to thank our neighbors at Stompbox Exhibit + Delicious Audio shared booth, especially Chris from Dusky Electronics, Tom from Spiral Electric FX and our friends from Mission Engineering, Inc. and Crazy Tube Circuits!
Huge thanks to everyone who visited our booth and hopefully we’ll meet again next year!
Now we need to focus on The Engine 🔥

Unit67’s 1st anniversary!


19/09/19
We are celebrating Unit67’s 1st anniversary! It’s been a great and successful year for DryBell after the release of the Unit67. Happy customers are our biggest reward.

Unit67 is recognized as a truly unique and special piece of gear, which is a great accomplishment in the over-saturated pedals market nowadays. We had a vision and we hoped that people will recognize its magic. Now, after a whole year of being on the market and many Unit67 users who fell in love with it the moment they played it, we can only say that we’ve succeeded in our mission.

We decided to celebrate with you by producing a small batch of limited edition Unit67 pedals in the color of the Vibe Machine V-2, our longtime pride and joy 😊.

Unit67 LIMITED EDITION pedals in a dark metallic finish are offered exclusively in our shop. Take the opportunity to own 1 of 50 Unit67 pedals from this special offer.

These might sell out soon, so hurry up and grab one while they are still available!

Unit67 demo playlist

Since it’s release, the Unit67 received several really fantastic videos and we’re hoping to get some more in the near future! 🙂

We have created a playlist for every official demo for your viewing pleasure so, make sure you haven’t missed any of them because they are really fun to watch 👀

You can watch it in here.

Enjoy!

Completed the 1st batch of our new pedal

10/08/18

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 🙂

V-1 & V-2 Differences

28/06/18

Since we released Vibe Machine V-2, lots of people asked us what’s the difference between V-1 and V-2 Vibe Machine?

Well, here‘s a nice info sheet where you can see the main differences side by side.

Of course, some people prefer the simplicity, other prefer endless tweaking possibilities and additional features, but as long they are happy with the way it sounds, that’s all that matters.
