The Vibe search is over!
I've tried several different pedals attempting to get that Hendrix & Trower "Univibe" sound. I have an old Dunlop Uni-Vibe Stereo Chorus which got me close for several years but always seemed to cut some of my mids out, plus no way to control speed with an expression pedal. Other pedals I tried were basically just glorified phaser pedals.
When the Lester G came out recently, I bought that with an expression pedal...I figured since the original 60s Univibe was an attempt to imitate the Leslie sound, this would be just the ticket for me. While the Lester G was very impressive and to me sounded just like a real Leslie, I soon realized it was too close and still didn't have that Univibe sound. On cleans, it was phenomenal, but not what I was looking for on my fuzz and overdriven Marshall tones.
Don't know why it took me so long to look into it but I finally decided to find out what Robin Trower currently uses. When he came through on tour recently, I got a good look at his pedalboard and this was the baby that was on there! After researching it, I figured out this is the closest clone of the original Univibe circuit available today, so had to try it. It's perfect! Placed into the front of my Marshall, it doesn't get better than this! I still run the old Dunlop Uni-Vibe in the fx loop for a different sound but this is THE vibe tone I've been searching for.
