Our own take on the greatest Vibe pedal ever made !
The original goal was to achieve the sound of a vintage UniVibe, but after getting there, we looked into taking it a few extra steps further !

The RetroVibe is using 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.
Made with original NOS 2SC828 transistors and carbon comp resistors for a true vintage sound !

An added twist ! We have incorporated 2 extra internal trimmers. The larger 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 (not recommended, but of course you have the final say!)

If you are a Hendrix / Trower fan, this is your pedal !

“The Retrovibe is my Vibe of choice. It has all of the “Vibe” of the original, particularly that illusive, complex midrange that responds so beautifully to pick attack. It behaves perfectly with Fuzz Face type pedals and is more transparent than any of the old Univibes I have heard. That it is so compact is quite a bonus and mine has Laurel and Hardy on it (I got lucky – the rest of you get flowers, Ha!)” Julien Kasper
