An original UniVibe clone with an added twist !
The original UniVibe uses 4 photocells surrounding a pulsating light source to deliver its very unique and recognizable sound...a thick chorus/vibrato type of effect starting off with a slow watery type swirl gradually becoming more 'alive' as the speed knob is manipulated clockwise resulting in a 'machine-gun' type warble around the 9 o'clock setting.
Our aim was to achieve the original sound of the UniVibe, having always as reference an Original '69 UniVibe.
The result: we dare you to compare it with any other UniVibe of the market, even with the original !
It is made with the original transistors 2SC828 and carbon comp resistors!
Our added twist ! We have added 2 extra internal trimmers. The bigger one initially affects the maximum intensity of the effect, but also dramatically manipulates the sound of the RetroVibe, all the while, maintaining the pedal's true vintage character.
The smaller one adjusts the non-existing Level knob on the face of the pedal and it comes set all the way up to the full level capacity. If you feel that the pedal's level needs to be decreased, you can adjust it from the inside.
If you are a Hendrix / Trower fan, this is your pedal !
- Controls : Depth, Speed, internal trimmer for the Level, internal trimmer for the intensity
- It works with 9V boss-type DC adaptor (inside the RetroVibe the power is ramped up to the original Univibe's 15V DC)
- Dimensions : 119 x 94 x 53 mm
- Limited Life-time warranty !
