The original Shin-Ei Uni-Vibe* is a highly unique, complex and gorgeous-sounding analog unit, so when we set out to recreate it digitally we knew it wasn’t going to be easy. Through countless hours of meticulous side-by-side testing with the real thing and by pushing our insanely powerful DSP to its very limits, we’ve been able to recreate this legendary effect to a tee. You’ll get all the lush, syrupy vibe tones heard on countless tracks by Pink Floyd, Robin Trower and Jimi Hendrix and when you dive into that opening Machine Gun riff, we just know you’ll be convinced that we nailed it.

We poured our heart and soul into VISCOUS VIBE and there’s no hiding that we’re extremely proud of what we achieved. Its dead-on recreations of the legendary gooey phasey goodness and thick dramatic swirls of the original Shin-Ei Uni-Vibe* unit already makes it epic, but then transferring it all to a high-quality compact design that won’t break the bank – that just makes it epic beyond belief.
With VISCOUS VIBE you get the best of both worlds in a pedal that perfectly combines old analog warmth with modern-day functionality. With True Bypass for uncompromised tonal quality and stereo I/O for an ultra-wide sonic perspective, you've got the ideal pedal for hammering home classic-rock tones in your setup.
Our proprietary TonePrint technology is just another upside to this already amazing pedal. So if you feel like making that stock vibe tone sound a little more like…well, you…then hook it up to our free TonePrint Editor and enter tone-tweaking heaven!
