We are the first to put out an exact copy of the legendary Vintage'60's Univibe on a large scale. Ours has that dripping Phase-Chorused tone that made Jimi's "Machine Gun" so epic!
Now it's tiny enough to fit on the most cluttered pedalboard, and because of the mini-DV's unique voltage doubling circuit you can use any standard 9 volt DC adapter(Fulltone FPS-1 adapter is included) and inside the MDV the power is ramped up to the original Univibe's 18+ volts DC!
Features also include a mini-toggle switch to choose between Vintage/Modern settings allowing for warm original '60's Univibe grind (Vintage setting) and louder, with more output (Modern setting).
The Photocells: we're the only small company who can quite frankly afford to have the correct Glass covered, hermetically sealed photocells Custom-made.
The bulb: getting the correct voltage rating on this is no big deal, but does size really matter? Yes, but don't look at the size of the Glass, look at the size of the Filament (wire inside the glass)! We got it right.. And this is crucial to achieve the correct amount of brightness... it also has to flash consistently at all speeds. Our does.
The Shroud: No, not a religious garment....the aluminum cover protecting the Photocells....is the inside of your clone mirrored? Too bad, the original Univibe's was and so is ours, and that's the only way to get the proper light reflection inside the photo-array. It's all in the details.
