VB-2 Vibrato
(Private collection, not available for trades, at this moment)
The VB-2 pitches the sound up and down to create a vibrato effect. In latch mode, the vibrato effect stays on. In unlatch mode the vibrato is on only when the pedal is pressed. Like the CE-1 Chorus Ensemble, the vibrato effect has its origin in the Roland Jazz Chorus JC-120 amp. It is based around the MN3207 BBD with accompanying MN3102 clock driver. For guitar players who apply finger vibrato without thinking about it, this effect can be difficult to use. Applying two sets of vibrato simultaneously doesn't always sound right. The VB-2 has become quite rare and is now a very sought after compact pedal.

The VB-2 had a short production starting April 1982 and most likely ending only a year later. Boss has stated that the VB-2 was in sale up until April 1986 but it is likely that the last 4 years was spent selling off the earlier production surplus.
