Enjoy authentic vibe sounds without taking up a ton of space on your pedalboard!
After extensive research and development, you now have the chance to test drive a pedal with authentic and defined vibe sounds in a much smaller enclosure.
The Vibe Machine™ – currently the world’s smallest vibe pedal. Even in its little box it retains almost all the features of the classic Uni-Vibe® – small in size, big on sound! When you switch the Vibe Machine on your guitar melts in to a swirling three dimensional space inhabited by chewy vibe harmonics and textures, it’s all here from shimmering liquid trebles to throbbing pulse-like waves of bass; a sonic force of beauty that tears down the walls around you!
All our custom photocells are matched with a specially constructed tester which means you really get an exceptional rotating vibe sound.
The Vibe Machine is incredibly practical for every pedalboard due to its small footprint. The Vibe Machine V-1 is almost half the size of other contemporary vibe pedals, this has the significant advantage of allowing you to use two smaller pedals in place of a larger one.
Leslie®, buffers and all the great vibe sound options
When you connect an expression or volume pedal to the Vibe Machine, the oscillation speed can be changed by foot. On top of this, if you use the Leslie® acceleration (internal jumper) option, the oscillations gradually speed up or slow down just as they would with a real Leslie cabinet. This is a completely new option for Vibe pedals, and one you should definitely try. Either way, you have control over the oscillation speed while you play.
TFC™ (Traffic Control) output is active only when the V-1 is turned on. With the TFC link you can turn on and off other pedals on your pedalboard using looper pedals. Please see the Vibe Machine manual or our FAQ section for more details.
The Vibe Machine V-1 offers more features still: for instance, if you prefer a brighter sound, moving the switch to the BRIGHT position will turn on the input JFET buffer, taking over the entire tonal range of your pickups no matter how long your cable is.
Furthermore, if you use longer cables from your pedalboard to your amplifier, you can turn on the output buffer to achieve a cleaner, more defined vibe sound.
