The Depths V2 Optical Vibe Machine is Earthquaker’s take on the classic optical vibe circuit. The Depths gives you the lush, pulsating, three-dimensional vintage pitch-shifting vibrato tones with modern accoutrements. This pedal is optimized for use with all electric instruments and to stack with overdrive/fuzz pedals.

In addition to the classic vibe controls, the Depths houses unique controls for “Voice” and “Throb’. The “Voice” control adjusts the midrange focus of the Depths, which is perfect for tailoring the effect to your particular instrument. Clockwise, you’ll hear a fuller sound with a low-end focus. Counter-clockwise, you’ll hear a thinner, spikier sound with a forward upper-midrange bite.  The “Throb” knob adds a hefty subharmonic low-end pulse to the vibrato signal, which is especially useful on synthesizers and the bass guitar. The Depths’ “Intensity” and “Rate” controls are dialed in to give you the classic optical vibe sound at more modest settings. Level control has tons of output on tap to combat perceived volume loss common with vibrato pedals, and may even be used as a clean boost.

This True Bypass pedal may be powered at 9v or 18v. Using the Depths at 18v will result in a stiffer tone with more headroom and sparkle. All analog, true bypass and handmade one at a time in Akron, Ohio.

Cool effect. Works great.


If you want to feel like your playing guitar under water, this is the pedal I would recommend.



I would buy this product again and again...


An optical vibe plus more. This is my favorite pedal and goes great with an analog delay and some fuzz.
