The Tones Dreams Are Made Of
Where Technology and Tone Meets
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-byside 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.

The World of Rock Just Leveled Up!
We've poured our heart and soul into Viscous Vibe and there's no hiding that we're extremely proud of what we've 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.
Vintage Vibes and Modern Strides
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 get the perfect pedal for everybody who wants to implement classic-rock tones into their contemporary 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! On top of that you can also beam custom-made vibacious tones straight through your pickups and into the pedal via our free TonePrint App. The future is a pretty awesome place to be!
